If you have picky eaters, blended products like smoothies are a great way for them to get the fruit and vegetables they need while you work on texture or other issues with them. Although we love our Kiwi Banana Smoothie or Pink Dragon Fruit Smoothie, having something savory to include is always good.

I like to serve this with another of their favorites- Goldfish Cracker Crusted Baked Chicken! They are a great pair and are also really easy for kids to help make.

Ingredients

Pantry staples:

  • stewed tomatoes
  • tomato puree
  • chicken stock
  • dried rosemary
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil

Shopping list:

  • onions
  • carrots
  • milk

Possible substitutions:

You can use any dairy free milk substitute you would like. I have made this with soy, almond and coconut milk and we enjoyed all the versions but my favorite is almond milk.

If you are short on time, pick up a bag of frozen chopped carrots and onions to use instead of chopping your own.

Although tomato puree is best because it is thicker, if you cannot find it, you can use tomato sauce and tomato paste. See notes section for measurements.

Also, you can swap canned diced tomatoes for the stewed tomatoes if you prefer.

Top Tips

Make sure to blend this in smaller batches. When blending hot products, the liquid will expand and can build up pressure causing the blender top to pop off. Placing a towel over the top of the blender and holding the lid in place can help.

If you are still concerned, using a hand blender can be a safer option.

Cooking with kids tips

I like to have the kids help me make this since it’s something they have always liked. This helps them to remember that it isn’t that they don’t like vegetables, it’s perhaps they don’t like the way the vegetables are served.

Have them help with as much of the process as you think will interest them, even if it’s just helping blend up the final product.
