    My boyfriend won't eat any vegetables apart from peas!!! He doesn't like the texture of them. Obviously, this isn't very healthy, and it's hassle for me...I love veg and don't wanna miss out! How can I hide them in his meals?!

    Just saw this ( late as ever ) does he eat bolognaise ? what i do with my kids is add veg to the sauce and blitz it to a smooth sauce. They never know what's in it. You could do the same with chilli i guess and add th mince later so you still get the texture

    I grate zucchini into just about everything that's sauce based, especially chunkier sauces. When grated and cooked awhile, it disappears into the sauce and even the pickiest eater won't eat. It works perfectly in things like chilli, stew, huevos rancheros, bean soups... and my picky husband never knows.

    Mashed cooked califlower in white cheese sauces is another for lasagnes and macaroni cheeses etc...
    I also make my owm tomato sauce from lots of veg and whisk for spag. bol and lasagna for the kids. If you choose red pepper and carrots as some of the veg, it makes the sauce sweeter. Adding a little bisto or worsechester (how on earth is that spelt???) to give the bolognaise a bit more beef.
