Zucchini is probably one of the easiest vegetables to hide into meals. And I don’t just mean the savoury stuff, I mean the sweet stuff too! You can add finely grated zucchini to things like chocolate cake and brownies which sounds strange but it’s not. It’s tasteless and will provide moisture and your family won’t even know it’s there. My favourite thing to add it to is pancakes!
I make my pancakes with 1 cup of self-raising flour (ideally wholemeal), 1 cup of milk and 1 egg. Mix together with 1 finely grated zucchini (without skin if you want to hide the green) and pan fry in butter.
I usually make Miss A’s in gingerbread man shapes (silicone moulds from Daiso) and serve it in her purple lunchbox with a side of fruits. She is more likely to eat food in a lunchbox compared to food on a plate. Looks more exciting and makes her feel like a “big girl” as all the kids in her books who go to school have lunchboxes!
