While my children were always very willing eaters, I came up with this recipe to get them to eat more veggies and enjoy it. The dip doesn't last long in our house. —Sarah Vasques, Milford, New Hampshire

Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet red peppers
  • 1 large zucchini
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese
  • Assorted crackers or fresh vegetables

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Cut vegetables into 1-inch pieces. Place in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray; toss with oil, salt and pepper. Roast until tender, stirring occasionally, 25-30 minutes. Cool completely.
  2. Place vegetables and cream cheese in a food processor; process until blended. Transfer to a bowl; refrigerate, covered, until serving. Serve with crackers or fresh vegetables.
Health Tip: Roasted veggies account for more than half the volume of this blended dip, which means fewer calories, less saturated fat and more nutrients. Not to mention amazing flavor.
