Making vegetables fun!

This post is sponsored by Country Crock. I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective, and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own.


I don’t know about you, but once the warm weather starts, I begin to turn away from comfort foods and try to eat way more fruits and vegetables.  I *love* using fresh fruits and vegetables as they come in season, and I’m always looking for new ways to prepare them.  When I found out about Country Crock’s new (FREE) cook book that is all about how to cook vegetables in a new and FUN way, I knew I had to try it out!

I am so thankful that my hubby isn’t really picky with many foods, but he does not usually go crazy over zucchini.  When I saw the cutest presentation for zucchini boats in Country Crock’s cookbook, “A Very Veggie World”, I knew it was going to be our recipe! Smile

Here’s how cute my little zucchini boats turned out:

Ahhh how fun are they?!  And here’s the best part – they honestly tasted SO GOOD!  The filling inside the zucchini was amazing – quinoa, veggies, spices, and just a touch of Country Crock spread.  And my husband was scraping his plate to get every last bite Smile 

The recipe can be found in Country Crock’s FREE cookbook called “A Very Veggie World”.  There’s 25 free, unique, *delicious* and beautifully photographed recipes that are all showing how you can serve veggies to your family in a new and fun way.  Here’s some snapshots from the book:






See how fun they are?!  Your kids (and husbands Winking smile ) will love eating their veggies with these recipes!

I really did love how Country Crock made our zucchini boats taste – and I was interested in finding out more about their product.  Did you know that Country Crock has 70% less saturated fat and 30% fewer calories than butter and 0g trans fats?  So you can feed your families these recipes and feel no guilt afterwards!
