Just A Spoonful
Sauce Helps The Vegetables Go Dovm
i . :
i Hie enjoyment of a variety of vegetables is most
important for growing boys and girls. Too often, :
however, even the most agreeable youngsters
""become finicky eaters when confronted with these ;
nutritious foods. Caring adults can encourage
children to eat and enjoy vegetables by teaching,
junior cooks their preparation. Kids are often more
' eager lo eat foods they've cooked. Another way to (
boost a child's acceptance of vegetables is to teach !
the preparation of flavorful, nutritious sauces made
from cheese products to serve atop the "veggies."
V Correct cooking of vegetables preserves colors,
flavors, textures, and nutrients. According to the
Kraft Kitchens, there are two important rules to.
follow in teaching beginners about cooking
vegetables. First Rule: Vegetables should be
prepared in the smallest amount of water possible,'
or in no water at all, because vitamin C, the B
vitamins, apd some minerals in vegetables dissolve
into cooking water, which is usually discarded. Se
cond Rule: Cook vegetables only until they are tork
tender and. still slightly crisp to preserve the
nutrients, flavor, appearance, and texture.! : , -,'
The most common method of ; preparing
vegetables is cooking in water,' a method suitable
for almost all vegetables. For greatest success,
follow these guidelines carefully? when teaching
your beginner: ;
Clean fresh vegetables' carefully to remove
bacteria and dirl. v
Pour !4 to cup water (for 4 to 6 servings of
vegetables) into a saucepan with a tight-fitting lid.
Salt water, if desired, and bring to a boil over '
Add vegetables and cover.
Return water quickly to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer, covered, just until
vegetables,are fork tender.
To preserve the bright color of green vegetables,
cook them uncovered for the first few minutes.
While the vegetables simmer, a junior cook can
prepare this pleasing sauce. For the easiest of cheesy
sauces, start with mild flavored Cheese Whiz
'pasteurized process cheese spread which is made
with a creamy blend of natural cheeses and other in
gredients. Because it is pasteurized, it melts
smoothly and quickly, making it just right for the

Mild natural cheeses are favorites with children,
and they make great cheese sauces for vegetables.
Casino brand natural monterey jack cheese, a dis
tant cousin of English cheddar cheese, has a creamy
white color, a soft moist consistency, and a mild
flavor that's a natural for saucing vegetbles.
For Monterey Cheese Sauce, start with a white
sauce. This takes a bit of skill, so adult Cooking
Coaches will want to remain close at hand. After
the margarine is melted, quickly stir in flour; salt,
,j and pepper to make a paste. Slowly add milk in a
f I thin stream while stirring constantly, to prevent"
' lumps from forming. Natural cheeses melt faster
and more smoothly when they are shredded. Show,
children how to hold the shredder over waxed
paper, which side of the shredder to use, and how to
shred slowly and safely, to avoid nicked fingers.
