Hidden Greens

Tanishk doesn't eat vegetables so I have to hide them in his food. So, I usually puree all the vegetables and mix them in dough / batter / cakes etc. In this recipe, I have pureed collard greens and carrots, and used it to make pancakes. They were very yummy and he couldn't guess that there are vegetables hidden inside.

Collard Greens are packed with nutrition. It has anti-cancer properties. They offer an excellent source of vitamins B6 and C, carotenes, chlorophyll, and manganese. One cup of collard greens provides more than 70 percent of the RDA for Vitamin C. Collard Greens are also a very good source of fiber, and several minerals, including iron, copper, and calcium. They also offer a good source of vitamins B1, B2, and E.
