Hidden Vegetable Bolognese

My youngest is not great at eating vegetables, he can find the smallest cut up piece of carrot with an eagle eye and quickly rejects anything I have tried to smuggle veggies into. In a desperate attempt to get more vegetables into his diet, I have the ultimate and simple hidden vegetable Bolognese.



Kids, bolognese, vegetables, easy, quick
Not even an eagle eye toddler will find the veggies in this bolognese


Bolognese is perfect for freezing so I always make up a large batch and freeze handy sized portions.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 8 servings

Ingredients
Oil for frying
1 onion
500g lean beef mince
1 tbsp. flour
2 x cans tinned tomatoes (about 400g each)
1 tbsp. tomato paste
300g mixed vegetables


Method
Dice the onion finely so when it cooks it will almost melt into the sauce.

Fry gently in a little oil until soft.

Add the mince and cook until browned.
Add the flour and let cook through. It's not essential but soaks up any fat and gives the sauce a richer and thicker consistency.
Add the tinned tomatoes and tomato paste, mix well and leave to simmer.
Meanwhile, either chop the vegetables finely or use a bag of mixed frozen veg. I zap mine in the microwave for about 3-4 minutes until cooked through.

Blend the vegetables to a paste (a little like thick baby food).
Add the vegetable paste to the Bolognese sauce and mix through. The vegetables will be well hidden and if you use a varied mix you can get lots of different vitamins packed into this meal.

Serve with your choice of pasta or use in a lasagne.
