i am my own four-year-old

Not all people get excited about a plate full of vegetables all the time.

That’s when disguises come in handy.[Recipe: Pick as many green beans as you can carry in the bottom of your t-shirt. Set a pot of water to boil. Go back outside and grab a bunch of stemmy old arugula, plus a handful of basil. Blanch the beans in boiling water, chop roughly, and throw in the blender with arugula, basil, a couple of cloves of garlic, a chunk of feta the size of an apricot (if apricots were craggy instead of round) and enough olive oil to keep things moving.]

When you’ve had enough of mock guac but still aren’t ready to face unadulterated vegetables, make pizza! Make a simple dough using a roughly 2:1 ratio of flour:water, plus some yeast and salt. Dip into those dried tomatoes you’ve been putting away and let a handful bubble in some warm olive oil. Spread the dough thin, decorate, stick in a very hot oven… and enjoy! You won’t even want dessert.
