My Quick & Simple Vegetable Recipes

I know not all kids WANT to eat vegetables, so I put some recipes on here that may disguised vegetables or add enough flavor that kids, or anyone can handle eating vegetables. Make sure you keep checking back for more recipes and pictures.

Please leave comments, questions, ideas you would like to see, have, or your own experiences below.

Carrot Casserole

  • 1 sack frozen, crinkle-cut carrots, thawed
  • 1 10 oz. can cream of celery soup, undiluted
  • handful of cut onions (chopped or minced
  • 1 2.8 oz french fried onions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix carrots, cut onions. Stir in soup, salt, pepper, onion powder, & garlic powder to taste. Put in sprayed 9″ x 9″ pan. Make it level. Add french fried onions on top. (Eating 1 is ok if you’re the cook.) Cover with foil and put in preheated oven for 30-45 minutes. Remove the foil for the last 15 minutes to brown. I created this recipe when I was trying to use up some frozen carrots. I used the typical green bean casserole as my inspiration because it’s such a hit in our house.¬† My goal is to fix vegetables so my kids will eat them. This way they have to eat the carrots to get the french fried onions on top!

CCC ( crock pot cream cheese) Corn

  • 1 stick butter/margarine
  • 1 8 oz block cream cheese
  • 32 oz. corn partially thawed if frozen or mostly drained if canned

Add all ingredients to a sprayed with non-stick spray crock pot. Sprinkle a little sugar, salt, and pepper. Put lid on crock pot. Turn on high if eating in 3-4 hours. Turn on low if eating in 6-8 hours. Can stir occasionally if going to be around. This recipe is always requested by my daughter if we are having/going to a holiday meal. We think that as long as there is cream cheese, we could mix it with grass! I wouldn’t recommend trying grass, though, I’d use corn. This is literally the easiest to make and it will feed 10-12 people. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

 Normandy Casserole

  • 1 sack of frozen broccoli, cauliflower, carrot mix, thawed (it may be called broccoli Normandy?)
  • 1-1/2 to 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can cream of celery or onion soup, undiluted
  • bit of minced or finely chopped onion
  • french fried onions for the top- 3 oz. can works

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl mix vegetables, cheese, onions, and soup, with salt and pepper to taste. Put in sprayed 9″ x 9″ square dish. Spread flat and top with french fried onions. (Remember only 1 for taste testing for the one making it!) Cover with foil and bake for about 30-45 minutes. Time depends on oven and how many other dishes are cooking with it. You will have to check to see that cheese is melted in vegetables. Remove foil for the last 10 minutes of cooking to brown. Remove from oven and serve. My kids eat more of the not-so-favorite vegetables with cheese. I’m not worried about weight gain from it because they will work it off around the farm. Besides, they get enough steamed/raw veggies served at school. Just try it once and if it’s not a hit, you don’t have to serve it again.
