Eating Healthy is "Green" Too: One Veggie Recipe Equals Four Meat Dishes (Part I)

You want your family to eat healthier, right?  But they only want to eat meat.  Well,
let them eat MEAT.  They will never know that they are also eating two servings of
vegetables at the same time.  Sounds impossible?  Well, do they like spaghetti, meat
loaf, hamburgers, or stuffed shells?  If the answer is yes, then it is very possible
for them to eat these favorite meat dishes and eat the vegetables that you want them to eat.

Review the recipe below and see how I take the impossible and turn it in to a possible

Lauren Daniels "No Worries" Veggie Base
2 Organic Carrots (chopped)
2 tbs Minced Garlic
1 Organic Tomato  (cut in four pieces)
1 Organic Onion   (yellow or white, cut in four pieces)
1 Organic Zucchini (cut in half)
1 Organic Squash   (cut in half)
1/2 Organic Bell Pepper  (cut in four pieces)
1/2 Organic Red Bell Pepper    (cut in four pieces)
1/2 Organic Yellow Bell Pepper (cut in four pieces)
1/2 Organic Poblano Pepper (cut in four pieces)
1/2 carton of Organic Baby Portabella Mushrooms (washed)
1 cup of Vegetable Broth

Using a VitaMix Blender, I did the following:

1. Put all of the ingredients in the blender.
2. Blend until smooth.

Note: It should have the consistency of a creamy soup.

The Lauren Daniels "No Worries" Veggie Base is the basis for making a wonderful meat spaghetti sauce, meat loaf, hamburgers, and stuffed shells.

I will post the recipes for all 4 meat dishes in a 4 part series, so stay tuned.

Makes 1 jar of Lauren Daniels "No Worries Veggie Base.

Note: Let's REUSE (as in REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE, RENEW) and pour the base in an old spaghetti jar.
