Enzo loves alphabet pasta so much so that I can pretty much add any other ingredients to the soup and he'll gladly eat it.
Today we made alphabet soup with some left over sweet potatoes and turkey. He claims to hate sweet potatoes but doesn't mind (or understand that it's the same thing) when I add it to different recipes.
I'm all about finding ways to add more nutrition to my kid's meal, especially veggies that he would otherwise never touch. This recipe is a variation from an alphabet soup recipe found in Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food. Another good resource is the Sneaky Chef website where you will find recipes for brownies with spinach, blueberries, oat bran, and wheat germ.
