healthy food. inappropriate language. zero fucks given.


The war between little humans and vegetables is long standing. Let’s outsmart those obnoxious little punks and make vegetables so damn tasty the feud will end. I felt positively outrageous the first time I fed my small son olives. He made a face that made him look possessed, yet he accepted them so readily. Olives have become a frequent feature in his diet. Those cheeky little suckers are rich in phytonutrients, good oils and antioxidants. And they make your child look hilarious when eating them! Winner!


– 2 tablespoons very finely chopped eggplant

– 2 tablespoons grated sweet potato or carrot (really you can put in any vegetable you want)

– 10 shredded baby spinach leaves

– 4 olives, pitted and finely sliced

– 1 teaspoon olive oil

– a wee little smidgen of minced garlic

– 1 tablespoon cream

 End the war:

– heat the olive oil over a low heat

– add that ridiculously cute small portion of garlic into the oil for a wee fry

– pop all the vegetables in and stir frequently, allow to cook for around 5 minutes

– pour in the cream, stir, and turn off the heat.

– serve up those sneakily tasty vegetables with some meat if desired!

– allow hilarity to ensue

 Young person olive face = brilliant,
