The Sneaky Chef will let you in on a little secret – there's a sneaky way to get healthy foods, like Beech-Nut®, into toddlers' and kids' favorite meals. The trick is to hide the foods kids should eat in the dishes they will eat.
Sneaky Pizza & Pasta Sauce
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, finely minced
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 28-oz. can whole peeled tomatoes with liquid
1 6-oz. can tomato paste
1 4-oz. jar Beech-Nut® Tender Golden Sweet Potatoes
1 4-oz. jar Beech-Nut® Tender Sweet Carrots
1/2 teaspoon salt
Place oil in deep saucepan over medium heat. Cook onions and garlic until translucent but not brown, stirring occasionally. Mix in tomatoes, tomato paste, carrots, sweet potatoes and salt, and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes until sauce thickens. Let cool a bit, then transfer sauce to blender and puree in batches, or use handheld blender inserted directly in the pot to puree sauce.
Stir in salt and a few grinds of pepper to taste. Useimmediately or store covered in fridge for up to one week. Freeze for up to six months.
