Garlic-Roasted Carrots

Simple, quick and delicious, these were a big hit with our testers. You just have to get the kids to try these once and it will be a side dish for life. And if not, more for you.

1 tbsp unsalted butter
1 lb carrots, peeled and cut on an angle into 1-inch pieces
2 cloves garlic, sliced
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Melt butter in a small pot over medium heat. Add carrots and garlic; cover pot and turn down heat to ­medium-­low. Cook, shaking pot occasionally, for 15 minutes or until carrots are tender and both carrots and garlic are slightly caramelized. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Makes 4 servings.

Meat Loaf

Maybe you think of meat loaf as an unhealthy meal from the ’50s. We think of it as an opportunity to hide nutritious food in a ­kid-­friendly ­hamburger-­type substance. There are oatmeal, carrots, parsnips and spinach in there, or you can choose to leave all the veggies out, or put one or two more in. If your kids are hamburger fans but the words meat loaf scare them, then you know what to do.

1 lb lean ground beef
1⁄2 lb ground pork
1 cup chopped onion
1⁄2 cup grated carrot or parsnip
1⁄2 cup chopped spinach
1⁄2 cup large-flake oatmeal (not instant)
3 tbsp milk
1⁄2 tsp chopped fresh thyme
1 egg
1⁄4 cup ketchup
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
1⁄4 tsp hot pepper sauce
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tsp brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Combine beef, pork, onions, carrot or parsnip, spinach, oatmeal, milk, thyme and egg in a large bowl.

Mix together ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and hot pepper sauce in a small bowl. Reserve half the sauce. Pour the other half over the meat mixture and stir gently to combine ingredients. Season meat mixture with salt and pepper to taste.

Add brown sugar to reserved sauce. Pack meat into 5- x 9-inch loaf pan and smooth top.

Bake for 30 minutes then remove meat loaf from oven. Using a knife, make 3 slits in top. Pour remaining sauce over top so that it runs into slits.

Bake for another 30 minutes. Turn on the broiler and broil for an additional 5 minutes. Pour off any fat, then carefully remove meat loaf from pan and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
