HOWEVER, I'm back today with one of my favorite traditions in the blogging world....

This week's What I Ate Wednesday post is going to be a little bit different. Instead of looking at a day's worth of eats, we're going to talk about how to make something I eat rather frequently much more tasty and exciting! As always, thank you to Jenn for the link-up! Head over to Peas and Crayons to find out more about WIAW and to check out what other bloggers are eating!
How many of you buy canned vegetables? How many of you LOVE the taste of them right out of the can?
Not many of you? Yeah...I don't either. So today, I wanted to share with you some ways that I use to spruce up canned vegetables to make them taste better (and more them more healthy, too)!
Mix them in to another dish
I've shared this tip before, and it works well for making canned veggies taste better, as well as hiding vegetables from picky kids and/or non-vegetable-loving husbands (like mine!). Whenever I make a boxed dinner, I'll mix in a can of vegetables to up the nutritional value of the dinner AND mask the taste of the veggies. It's really a win-win situation!
Mix in some fresh vegetables
Other good combinations I thought would be good to try: canned peas with fresh steamed carrots, canned spinach with sauteed peppers or onions, and sauteed onions with canned green beans.
Question for you: What do you do to make your canned veggies taste better?
