Hey everyone, thanks a lot for your suggestions and inputs. I feel like I have a brand new confidence. I guess all I needed was a different approach and a different perspective. Getting him involved in the cooking process is really a great idea.

I know there are other food alternatives that would provide the same nutrition, but I guess you'd agree that its nice when you have more food options than less....specially when you are the one who has to plan the menu everyday. And kezlehan...I am trying the casserole recipe tomorrow. Looking forward to it. Thanks

My brother used to be like that too

But he eats vegetables in "gratin" I don't know the word in english, especially zucchinis.
He loves it in quiche too (salted tarts) Spinach, zucchinis, broccolis, everything in a quiche is ok




Otherwise mashed potatoes + carrots is fine too !

any kid with eyes to see can find specs of the dreaded green veg no mater how much you use the vita mix. However, it's taste that does it. Green beans go with bacon, broccoli with cheese sauce, peas and carrots go in shepherd's pie, cauliflower and kale are great for soups because they suck up the flavors they are cooked in. Good luck.

Someone already mentioned wax beans. Also purple cabbage (you can sometimes find purple string beans and asparagus). And mini veg & dip is something some of the most die-hard veggie hater kids I know like. Beets in a sweet sauce (I think they're called Harvard beets) might be worth a try.

Thanks everyone, some great ideas....it is also an opportunity for me to prepare things I have never prepared before...like quiche. I am sure the variations alone would motivate my son to get to try the 'dreaded greens'. Even watching Popeye, the sailor...didn't motivate him to eat spinach. Some magic will have to be worked in the kitchen and I am so ready!

Like others have said...take him to the store with you; let him select the
Broccoli or Asparagus or whatever vegetable you want. Let him help
cook it....sprinkle a few dashes of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce
on it and some Parmesan cheese on it, that should help dull the taste of
the green vegetables.

If not; you can try some reverse psychology on him and say it's best he
doesn't eat green vegetables as you don't want him to turn into
the Hulk.
