Aldi sell big bags of ‘wonky carrots’ and I’ve discovered how easy it is to add grated carrot to a lot of meals, it bulks them out and adds good nutrition to the meal. I add it to mince dishes (Like LuluBlue does with oats), add it to rice with a bit of onion, peas, chicken plus some stock as a one pot dinner, also make carrot and coriander soup. Yum. Thankfully both my kids like carrots!!
I’ve also been told to try using half meat and half lentils for meat dishes, I’ve not done it yet but have eaten it in lasagne at a friends  and it was yummy!
