Add them to dessert

I’m a vegan so I really don’t need to work on getting more veggies into my diet. That said, my husband is a “meat ‘n’ potatoes” guy! I add grated veggies like carrots and zucchini to his meatloaf and burgers. I also add shredded carrot, zucchini, spinach, mushrooms and what ever else I can find in the fridge into his spaghetti, chili etc. I also have an awesome zucchini chocolate cake recipe that he loves! Omit the chocolate and add pineapple, cinnamon & nutmeg and you get an awesome spice cake! – posted by Kat Derksen
