One of our favourite ways to include #halfyourplate with fruits and veggies is to sneak it into your sauces! Not only will this add colour and nutrition, but it can pep up a plain sauce from simple to flavour-bursting. Here are some of our favourite tips for making a veggie-filled sauce:

  • Add onions, mushrooms and zucchini to your spaghetti sauce
  • You can blend steamed cauliflower with your cheese sauce
  • Try adding kale or spinach to your pesto
  • Roasted peppers blend nicely into a sauce with some cream or Greek yogurt
