    I used to do that to my kids all the time. They swore they didn't like onions, so I would sub onion powder when possible. They were never the wiser!

    I would put the onions & green pepper in a blender and make juice out of them. What they don't see they won't object...

I use these in all kinds of things including chili, meatballs and meatloaf, soups, casseroles, etc. They add a lot of flavor and are not there for the kids to see.
    When I decide what I am going to make, I break off the veggie chunks and set them out to thaw. If it's last minute, a short time in the microwave thaws them even quicker.
    That is a great idea. Would be really handy for us working gals that come in late and have to fix dinner. My son, who is what you might call a gourmet cook, told me he makes stock from scratch, then freezes it in an ice tray. When ever he needs stock he just pops out however many cubes he needs. With your recipe and his, you have a start to a real tasty dinner.

    I use the mini food processor to pulverize onions when I'm cooking for my son. He likes the flavor, but not the pieces. My daughter used dried chopped onions for the same reason. She says the kids never notice those. I'm not sure I could get enough onion flavor for me with onion powder, plus I prefer fresh.

    For t he green peppers, I'd cook a little dish on the side to add to mine. Either you like green peppers or you don't.

    My DH doesn't like the crunch that onions or green peppers add to a dish so long ago I started using onion powder and to still have the flavor of green pepper I puree it and add as part of the liquids in the recipe.

    Just a note of caution.

    There are some of us with food sensitivity/intolerance and allergies. I was at an event today with a lady who is deathly allergic to strawberries. There was fruit punch, but no one knew if it had strawberries in it. She drank water.

    A friend's DD has Crones and Colitis. Onions, garlic, leeks etc will put her in the hospital.

    The nightshade family of plants can be highly allergic for some (Tomatoes, peppers, potatoes). Picking them out of the pot is not good enough.

    I fully understand that many are either picky eaters or fussy about the texture of their food, but for some of us a hidden ingredient is dangerous, even deadly.

    I may not get sick on the spot if I have dairy or wheat, but I will suffer for at least 2 weeks, miss work and generally be miserable.

    I'm with you Tothill...even though some might think we are just "picky" eaters, many food sensitivities can cause a lot of trouble for some of us!

    My husband truly dislikes onions and garlic. I sort of slide a few teaspoons or shakes of either powdered one into what I am cooking and he never notices. I also sometimes puree veggies to put in recipes for those that don't like them. I came from a big family and we ate what was put in front of us or we would starve. Said to say that never happened and I have the figure to prove it. Ha! Happy Cooking!
