G’s Creamy Veggie Sauce (no cream)!

G’s Creamy Veggie Sauce (no cream) was created for my lil’ man, G.  He is now officially two years old and killin’ it everyday! Keeping him strong and healthy is obviously my mama priority.  A few months ago I made this sauce for him and quickly took some pics. Again, not back on the food photography band wagon yet, as I simply do not have any time for that, however, I decided I can’t let this deter me from posting on my blog!  G stopped eating most vegetables in whole form for a bit but I wasn’t willing to cut them out of his diet.  I thought if I pureed them into sauces, soups, etc that he may hop back on the veggie ship and sail back into veggie love.  Alas, it worked!  Frankly, I adore this sauce myself.  It most certainly was created for my toddler, however, it is a perfect sauce for adults alike.  Use whatever you’ve got leftover in your fridge and toss it in.  This recipe can serve as your guide or you can follow it completely.   If you’re looking to pack your wee one (or yourself) with a protein/vitamin flavorful punch, then this is the sauce for you! Veggies galore, beans, tofu, tomatoes, herbs, parmesan (optional for vegans or sub vegan parm) make up this burst of deliciousness and health that will make your taste buds dance for more!  Easy, healthy, delicious and done in only 5 minutes! This G’s Creamy Veggie Sauce (no cream) is a must-add to your recipe repertoire.
