This is a very cool book. A very sneaky book. A book about getting vegetables into kids' bellies (without them even realizing it).
In a nut shell, Deceptively Delicious is a cookbook filled with creative versions of everyday recipes. Each recipe incorporates a sneaky veggie puree --- a hidden shot of fibre and vitamins. Some of the suggested recipes seem quite outlandish, but are intriguing nonetheless. I am itching to try them out. Some of Jessica Seinfeld's most interesting suggestions include:
- Brownies (with carrot and spinach)
- Chocolate chip cookies (with chickpeas)
- Banana bread (with cauliflower)
- Homemade ketchup (with carrot)
- Macaroni and cheese (with butternut squash or cauliflower)
I also enjoyed Deceptively Delicious' vintage cutesy feel and gorgeous photography. Nearly every recipe is accompanied by a luscious photograph. (And cookbooks without pictures are just plain boring, aren't they?)
