Winter Veggies The Whole Family Will Love (Even Your Kids) - Real Plans

Yes, there will be cookies. Gingerbread houses and pies filled cinnamon and clove. There will be rich, creamy things and tender, meaty things. But what about winter veggies?

Of the many foods that the holiday season gets right, it’s those winter vegetables. But they’re often spooned onto dinner plates as a side or – in some cases – forgotten altogether.

There’s something to be said for deep hues of red, orange, and green in your bowl. Those hearty greens and sweet, starchy vegetables bring out the best in any meal. If you’re stuck in a veggie rut (ahem, like a sheet pan of roasted sweet potatoes e’ry night) then try one of our favorite winter vegetable recipes. We think your kids will like them too.

Roasted beet pasta with dill and lemon

How to get your kids to eat veggies? First, act like it’s no big deal. Then, get them involved. No, this beet pasta doesn’t use spiralized beets. But with a pink and magenta puree, it makes cook (and eating) a lot of fun.

Roasted veggie enchilada casserole

Who doesn’t love casserole? Especially one packed with roasted cauliflower and cumin-spiced sweet potato. Nestle all that roasted goodness in corn tortillas, layer it with black beans and then cover it with melted Monterey jack cheese. Voila. It’s just the thing for chilly winter nights.

Cream Thai carrot sweet potato soup

Rich and sweet, with a little bit of warmth from the ginger and curry. The secret to this soup is almond butter. We dare you to eat just one bowl.

Coconut turmeric quinoa with kale

Any dish that requires just one cooking vessel is both kid-friendly and mom-friendly. Spiced with ginger and turmeric, it won’t overwhelm your little one’s palate – but it will expose her to some bold flavors.
