For some sweet ideas.
Make a plain muffin/buttercake mix and grate in peeled zucchini and some orange juice to replace some of the milk. You can add orange zest too if the zucchini seems strong flavoured.
Chocolate muffins - add mashed pumpkin or sweet potato and reduce the liquid ingredients a little. Some people also like this with beetroot - but I'm not one of them!
The old fave carrot cake, but add double the carrot the recipe says.
Also, my DD went through a phase of rejecting veggies - despite loving them up to that point. I always still dished up some vegetables onto her plate at every meal. I never made a big deal about her eating them, just put them there and when she was ready she started to eat them again.

Ds 15.5 months is doing the same thing atm.
If the vegies are hidden like in spag bol or sausage rolls it's ok, but if he can see them he wont touch them.
I have borrowed a book from the library called Deceptively Delicious by jessoca Seinfeld. It has normal recipes that kid apparently eat that she then hides certain vegies in by pureeing them and mixing them in.
I've made a couple of things so far with success.

Thanks everyone she seems to have gone off all veggies (corn on the cob included strangely enough which she used to love). And she never really ate salad she'd just suck the dressing off and spit it out. For those who've done sausage rolls can I ask how you make them? Otherwise I'll try to infuse my spag bol with more veggies and try some of the other suggestions

I make sausage rolls with half lean mince half sausage mince, then add very finely chopped onion and finely grated zucchini and carrot. I usually add a bit of season salt too. You can test the filling by frying a small patty if it before you cook the whole lot and then adjust the seasoning.
Then wrap in puff pastry, brush with milk, cut to size and bake til golden at about 180. (I have a dodgy oven so temperatures are a bit of guesswork.

Basically the same as stretched.
I have done some in filo pastry before also. They don't look as appetising, or quite as nice, but they are edible..

Tacos are my biggest veggie smugglers. I add carrot, zucchini, corn, blitzed brocolli and red kidney beans to the mince and the add cucumber, avocado, tomato & lettuce to the shell and amazingly they love it. Won't touch the mince mixture if it's not in a taco shell, but none goes to waste in the shell!!

My 1 year old generally throws her green veggies onto the floor as soon as I give them to her so I've made her a pasta sauce with sautéed onion and garlic, steamed pumpkin, broccoli, peas and spinach and fresh basil all blitzed up into a relatively smooth sauce. She gobbles it down!
