My kids eating preferences could not be more different- my daughter will eat almost anything. She loves most veggies, devours spicy food and frequently gets a salad for lunch at the school cafeteria. My son, on the other hand, will only eat a few select vegetables, doesn’t like his food too spicy and I have a very difficult time getting him to eat casserole-style dishes. (And you can especially forget him eating a casserole if he spots a single green veggie in it.)

So yes, I’ve been known to puree and add different veggies to my recipes.  (I’ve got a great roundup of hidden veggie recipes here.)

It’s spinach!

how to make green eggs and ham

To get the bright green color, you just puree 2 cups of fresh baby spinach with the eggs in a blender or food processor. My kids never knew it was spinach that turned the eggs green because the Frittatas certainly didn’t taste like spinach. (Have you ever noticed that some spinach has a very strong flavor and other spinach doesn’t? To me, I’ve found that fresh, organic baby spinach, stems removed, often tastes the best.)

  2. Place eggs and spinach in a blender or food processor, process until spinach is pureed. Add baking powder, salt, pepper and cream, process til combined.
  3. Thoroughly grease a 12 cup muffin pan. (and if you don’t like scrubbing your muffin tin, you might consider using foil liners.)
