1 cup stale bread, toast crumbs, or bread crumbs (I like to use the bread heels for this) 1 cup veggies (anything works! I use whatever leftovers are in the fridge or whatever needs used up) 1/2 cup shredded cheese Olive oil (enough to make a dough) Seasonings to taste (we like Italian)
Put all ingredients in a food processor and blend until a dough forms. Drop by tablespoons onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees until slightly browned.
You can mix and match/adjust ingredients to get the texture or flavor that you want. My kids love these and even more so since they're called cookies View Thread
If you're a parent, grandparent or child caregiver, then you know that getting kids to eat their vegetables can be difficult at best. Many parents find sneaky ways to hide the veggies in dishes they know their kids like to eat.
This week, please share the recipes you serve to your kids in which veggies were both healthy and stealthy.
Good luck on this final week of the Healthy Plate Recipe Challenge!
There is still time to get to the top of the leaderboard.
It is to larf: when I read Olivia's note about greens my first reaction was exactly the same as -- is it? -- Olva's in the first reply above: "Yeah, yeah, but greens need bacon and that means they're going to come racing over from the Heart Association to confiscate my card."
Then I had a second thought: "Hmm, ya don't have to have bacon. Ya could fry up a little garlic in ollive oil, and that would probably do the trick..."
Then I started reading the replies, and Lo, the first two were exactly the same as my first two thoughts. Sure, eating steamed collards can make you feel holy, but collards slathered in olive oil and garlic make you immune to the need to feel holy.
You may have noticed that this board has a bit of a different look and feel than our other WebMD communities. We are using this format to test a fun new type of community -- the Challenge.
Each challenge will have a specific topic, such as this Healthy Plate Recipe Challenge. Then, every Monday for six weeks a new prompt, in this case for new recipes, will be posted to the board.
Members will submit their recipes by choosing "Recipe" from the Post Now drop down at the top of the community page. Other members will be able to vote if they like your recipe suggestion, and you can vote on theirs.
The recipes with the most votes will appear updated daily in the Popular Recipes module on the right side of the page. At the end of each week, the top five winners for that activity will be announced to the entire WebMD Community.
The Leaderboard on the right side of the page will be updated weekly to reflect an overall tally of which members taking part in the challenge are getting the most votes. At the end of the 6-week challenge, we'll be bragging about those top winners across the site and featuring your recipes as well. You may even see your name on WebMD's home page and in one or our Food, Fitness or Diet newsletters!
We hope you'll join us in making these new WebMD Challenges a success. And, be sure to have fun with it!
We can't wait to get started.
Our first Healthy Plate Recipe Challenge will be posted on Monday, Oct. 3, at 9 a.m. ET. Be the first to post your recipes!
Take care, Olivia
