Pureed Veggies a la Deceptively Delicious

I had to clean out the frig before I picked up the this week's Produce Basket, and had some veggies that I didn't have any plans for and no more room to store them. So I dug out my Deceptively Delicious cookbook and decided to puree them up so I could hide them in other recipes down the road.

I decided to puree up carrots, cauliflower, and spaghetti squash, and followed the directions in the book. Here are all my chopped up veggies waiting for the steamer:

I had a great time pureeing them up, and I let my son push the button on the food processor, so he was ecstatic to "help". This whole process really brought me back making baby food for my son...wow how the time flies! I took lots of photos of the pureed veggies because they looked so darn pretty!

I then spilt them up into 1/2 cup portions in sandwich bags and threw them into the freezer.

I don't have any specific plans for any of the pureed veggies, but I'm thinking trying the Applesauce Muffins (with pureed carrots) from the Deceptively Delicious cookbook again. I'm making homemade tomato sauce this week, so some carrots might make a surprise in that dish, too!
