Vegetable purees are a great choice for lunch or dinner. Rich in fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants, they provide your body with lasting energy. Even those who hate veggies will fall in love with my creamy sweet potato puree. It’s paleo-friendly, grain-free, and full of flavor. This meal boasts a healthy dose of beta carotene and takes little time to cook. It’s my new favorite side dish!
Personally, I’ve always been a fan of vegetables. However, there are plenty of people who can’t stand carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, and other veggies. Sometimes I have guests who come over with their kids, and it can be hard to keep everyone happy. Most children hate vegetables and would rather starve than eating them. I was pleasantly surprised to see that my paleo vegetable puree appeals to picky eaters too. With its subtle flavor and creamy texture, it will leave you craving for more.
This delicious sweet potato puree makes eating more vegetables easy. Next thing you know you’ve possibly eaten everything on your plate without blinking on eye. Sweet potatoes boast large amounts of vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, manganese, potassium, and complex carbs, so they should be a staple in your diet. They are a perfect source of carbs for Paleo followers, offering taste and nutrition. Mix them with garlic, butter or ghee, parsnips, and carrots to enhance their flavor. I experiment with different spices and herbs every time I try this recipe. So, here is my favorite paleo vegetable puree for picky eaters:
- 4 sweet potatoes
- 2 large carrots
- 5 medium parsnips
- 3 tablespoons ghee
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- ½ medium onion
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of ginger
- ½ cup water
- Coarse salt
- Freshly ground pepper
- Peel and chop the carrots, parsnips, and onion. Toss them into a large pot.
- Cut the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise, place them on a foiled-lined pan, and bake for about 45 minutes. Peel when cool.
- Boil the vegetables in water and then simmer for 10-12 minutes.
- Add the potatoes, garlic, onion, olive oil, salt, pepper, and spices.
- Use a potato masher or a fork to create the desired texture.
- Scoop a large portion on each plate. Enjoy it!
