Share The Love Sunday: Recipes with Fruits and Vegetables in Unusual Places

It’s Share The Love Sunday. It’s so special it only happens when the wind blows West, the stars align and something spectacular gets found on the Internet. I’m all about sharing the good stuff.  This week it’s fruits and vegetables in unusual places. I know it sounds weird, and it is, but it’s also delicious.

Brussels Sprouts: Not actually in any of these recipes, but is in fact an unusual vegetable.

I made pizza with fruit on it this week. One had apples and one had peaches. Intrigued? Click these links and get the recipes. Add some more fruits and vegetables to your diet. And add more pizza. Every diet needs more pizza, right?

They were both excellent! I promise.

Summer Peach and Balsamic Pizza by love and olive oil.

*Disclaimer: I used whole wheat pizza crust that I made myself for both recipes. I also added bacon because bacon means nobody can complain. Nobody did either. Both pizza’s were a hit!

I also made zucchini cookies. I know, sounds strange, right? They are delicious. Tiny-Small gobbled them up and I laughed my maniacal laugh because I tricked her into eating something green.  Awesome.

Strawberry cake anyone? Fresh strawberries, real butter, lots of Greek yogurt? It’s all in here. This cake is so moist and delicious. I didn’t even make the frosting for it. Seriously, it’s that good.

Do you ever put fruits and vegetables in unusual places? In food…I only want to know about the food. Recipes. Nothing else…lalalalalalala. That’s me plugging my ears to all of you pranksters and humorists out there. I meant do you have any recipes with fruits and vegetables that are kind of unusual?

Happy Sunday! Tiny-Small says, “Eat more fruits and vegetables.”

OK, that was really me saying that with a big helping of wishful thinking. Tiny-Small would tell you to eat more candy. She really would. She’s three. She’s got candy on the brain 24-7, unless, of course, she’s thinking about ice cream.

Enjoy!

  1. So, I like to think of myself as something of a fruit and vegetable master. I once got a friend of mine (who NEVER ate vegetables AT ALL) to eat asparagus (because I covered it in garlic). Her mom was shocked.

    You can hide pumpkin (or zucchini or any kind of squash, really) in ANY baked recipe. Brownies with pumpkin instead of oil are DELICIOUS. And good for you!

    Also, have you seen my recipe for a Brussels sprout and asparagus salad? That stuff is AMAZING. And also has bacon (or turkey bacon or ham).

    1. I must have the brussels sprout and asparagus recipe. It sounds delicious! I am going to try the pumpkin in the brownies. I will put pumpkin in just about anything and everything. I really want to get more veggies into Tiny-Small.
