As a stand-alone, this is about like baby food. As an ingredient, this stuff rocks! You can add it to breads, macaroni and cheese, spaghetti sauce, meatloaf, pancake batter, baked beans, etc. It is a fabulous way to "sneak" some vegetables into the diet of a picky eater or enhance the nutritional content of comfort foods. This is from "the sneaky chef" cookbook. Awesome ideas for feeding kids!
