Veggies, puréed

(article, Culinate staff)

In a recent appearance on the "Today" show, food writer Mark Bittman demonstrated a more glamorous way of getting your veggies: veg spreads made in the blender. Sure, he includes the expected (baba ganoush made with roasted eggplant) but also the funky: broccoli pesto, butternut squash dip, and a beet spread. And no, he doesn't serve them as baby food but as dips or sandwich spreads. We'll call that worthy of The Vegetable Challenge.
