Making Vegetables Suck Less: Part 2. Carrots.


Making Vegetables Suck Less: Part 2. Carrots. For all of you new followers to this page, welcome. You will find very quickly that one of the common themes on this page is my disdain for vegetables. I hate all raw vegetables and I tolerate some cooked ones. One of my goals for this page is to help all of you learn to create meals where eating vegetables isn’t a chore. Believe it or not roasted carrots are one of the few vegetables i don’t have a deep hatred for. But raw carrots can take a hike. One way to make them better is to hide them in sweet potatoes??
When it comes to hiding vegetables in our food there are 5 major factors I’ve found that contribute to a large percentage of how well a vegetable can be hidden into another food. They are texture, flavor, size, smell, and sight. You want to try and match or better the vegetable to whatever you’re trying to hide it in. Vegetables usually have poor texture and flavor which are the two most important factors. You must either match or overpower these two variables with whatever you are hiding the vegetable in. For this example, boiled sweet potatoes and carrots really arent that different in flavor and mashing/blending them matches textures. Size isn’t so much a factor here so we can omit that part and smell and sight is essentially the same as regular mashed sweet potatoes. .
So I came up with this value I call a Vegetable Satisfaction Score which is determined from the following. each term is ranked on a scale from 1-10: VSS = (.35)texture + (.35)flavor + (.2)size + (0.05)looks + (0.05)smell. A perfect VSS is 10 and means that the hidden vegetable is equal to the satisfaction of whatever it is hidden in, this is very unlikely. A score of 1 is equivalent to the raw vegetable. I find that texture and flavor are equally important when it comes to hiding vegetables. The size of the vegetables plays a 2nd place role and smell and looks play a small role because they are important when it comes to food enjoyment, but not as much as our other factors. Here is what I score this combo at. ➖VSS=0.35(10)+0.35(8)+0.2(10)+0.05(10)+0.05(8)=9.2. 9.2 is an excellent score meaning this is a great way to hide carrots!!
