Mr 3 is the Picky Eater of the family. He will politely, yet sternly turn his nose up at foods presented that are not part of his favorite foods list. As mentioned previously, he LOVES avocado, which on it's own is full of nutritious goodness. I make him plain avocado sandwiches for lunch more often than I care to admit. From time to time, I try and take advantage of this love to introduce his palate to tastes he wouldn't usually try and to provide him with a wider variety of nutrients.
I tried offering him a few Spinach leaves with his lunch earlier in the week and he point blank refused. So, I thought I'd get him to eat spinach by pureeing a handful of leaves with some mashed avocado. It worked a treat and he ate his way through a sandwich and muffin tin meal with this wholesome Avocado and Spinach Sandwich Spread.
To prepare the Avocado and Spinach Sandwich Spread, first mash half an avocado until soft.
Mini Food Processor and then cover with a handful of spinach leaves.
Turn on the Mini Food Processor and blitz until pureed to a smooth consistency. I love how luminous green the Avocado and Spinach Sandwich Spread is.
