My children do not like to eat very many things. They don't like tofu. They don't like any bean or any dish that a bean is in. Z1 will tolerate burritos or tacos made with black beans but not Z2. They both will tolerate split pea soup but not without some serious cajoling. It seems all they want to eat are fish sticks, broccoli, pizza, grilled cheese, or macaroni and cheese, and yogurt (but Z1 not so much). It drives me crazy because I think they eat too much cheese but it's what they like. And granted, the cheese I give them comes from grass-fed cows and all that but still . . .
I'm writing this after another failed attempt at dinner. Tried a new dish in hopes that they'd like it: it's a peanut sweet potato stew with kidney beans from Vegan Planet. I tasted just a little and I think it's delicious especially with rice. Initially, I was going to make sweet and spicy chili from the same cookbook but I already knew it would be a fail.
