Nine Crave-Worthy Veggie Dishes You Will Actually Like

April 30, 2018

Let's face it. Most of us need to add more vegetables to our diet. According to the most recently updated Dietary Guidelines for Americans, we should be consuming between 5 to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables each day. This is equivalent to about 2 1/2 to 6 1/2 cups daily.

For most of us, getting the recommended amount of nutrients in our diets can be a challenge, especially if you are a busy family with young children. Not to worry, we have rounded up nine delicious veggie dishes to enjoy with TortillaLand® tortillas that the whole family will actually enjoy!

These recipes are not only crave-worthy, they are easy to prepare and a great way to integrate more nutrients into your diet. You can also find fresh new ideas by following our recipe page.
