Your go-to veggie

Postby bride2009 » Tue Jul 09, 2013 2:56 pm

What are some good go-to veggie side dishes? I love vegetables but rarely go out of my comfort of; green beans, peas, corn. Suggestions?

I could eat roasted broccoli every single night. We do a lot of squash and asparagus as well.

A pan of roasted veggies are my favorite - beets, purple potatoes and sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts,squash, garlic, onions, etc. Yum!
A sweet potato by itself, or sauteed brussels sprouts by themselves.
Cucumber and tomato salad. Sugar snap peas. Roasted eggplant.

Asparagus. I put it on the griddle for 30 seconds to a minute. Sometimes I add a little balsamic vinegar if I'm feeling crazy :)

We do steamed broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots a lot. Tonight we had kale chips. We also really like sweet potatoes! I love Brussels sprouts, but we rarely make them. I should incorporate those into the meal plan next week for sure. Zucchini and yellow squash are another staple. Asparagus is our go-to for anything with pasta sauce.

I also try to plan meals that incorporate a lot of veggies, like quesadillas. You can load 'em up!

My favorite is to toss in a little oil and sea salt, then put it in the oven for 20-30 min until its brownish but not burnt. Squeeze a little lemon and toss on a tiny bit of fresh Parmesan (a little goes a long way). I have eaten an enormous bowl of broccoli made like this (and nothing else) quite a few times when DH isn't home and I'm not cooking a big meal.

Another vote for roasted broccoli!! It's a staple here. We roast most of our other veggies too, it's just so easy and roasting brings out such amazing flavor. In the summer we love grilled zucchini and squash. And we often make salads for dinner and just switch up the toppings and dressings to keep it interesting.

Mmmmm! Ditto ALL of this, down to eating a giant bowl to myself for a meal :good:
