This was time consuming; but, I've been known to peel and finely cut dark red kidney beans and add to pasta sauce for spaghetti. It just looks like parmesan cheese...hehehe. Also sometimes I will add carrot baby food to brownie mix before cooking. My pediatrician told me to take a can of pumpkin and chocolate muffin mix and put them together. She says her kids love it. I have yet to try it; but, it's on my list of things to do!

There are some pastas that are made from pressed veggies. They tend to be multi-colored too which makes them more attractive to the little ones.

I have the book Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld and I love her recipes and my girls love it too. You should also check out Weelicious.com They have a LOT of great recipes they're all healthy!

My kids love homemade tomato soup, I puree white beans and put them in there. The kids never know and they get a really good dose of protein and iron. I also buy Plant Source protein powder (vegan, gluten free, low glycemic) Vanilla flavored and I put in raw spinach, banana, and vanilla almond milk. It's a favorite breakfast or snack in my house. The kids think they're getting a treat and they don't know that it has half of their daily fruit/veg in it AND protein. You cannot taste the spinach at all. I promise!

Meatloaf - sautee onion and garlic, shred a carrot and chopped up some raw spinach leaves.

Puree some squash to spaghetti sauce (which is veggies too!)

Cauliflower mashed potatoes - steam cauliflower until tender. Doctor it up the way you do mashed potatoes

Grilled cheese - thin slices of tomato or chopped up raw spinach leaves.

Scrambled eggs with sautee spinach - top with cheese

I now live and die by hiding veggies in our food. The two cookbooks I love are Sneaky Chef and Deceptively Delicious. I bought them at Half Price Books. Jessica Seinfeld (Deceptively Delicious) also just came out with a new cookbook with new recipes. I haven't bought it, yet, but I plan to. Jessica's methods are pureeing your veggies all from scratch, but I like how the Sneaky Chef gives you options to use pre-packaged baby food.
