Brussels sprouts.  Blanche then fry.  Delicious.

@juliana192:  You like broccoli so you’ve probably tried this, but have you tried roast broccoli? It’s so good! I put some seasoned salt on it and it’s yum!

I also use about 6 bags of spinach to make spanakopita. It’s one of my favorite foods.

I just found this recipe for cauliflower and have made it multiple times this week – its so good! http://nutritionstripped.com/buffalo-cauliflower-bites-and-ranch-dip/

@juliana192:  Kale roasted with garlic, olive oil and just a sprinkle of salt.

But then again, we like all vegetables. last night we had roasted parsnips, Yukon Gold potatoes and carrots.

I love stir frys. Can never get enough of them. A little coconut & sesame oil and NOM!

I also throw vegetables into food whenever I can. Stews, soups, roasts.

I love cauliflower & broccoli steamed and drizzled with a little teriyaki sauce.

@juliana192:  As far as carrots are concerned, I can hardly bring myself to chew cooked carrots, but raw I can eat all day!

Lots of ways:

I love salad–romaine and spinach for the base, then add in onion, corn, scallions, shrimp or chicken, and parsley or cilantro.  Fantastic for lunch or dinner too!

Roasting in a 400 degree oven with EVOO, salt, pepper and garlic powder: cauliflower, zucchini, onion, mushrooms, carrots, potatoes, butternut squash, asparagus… almost anything really.

Steamed and served with vinaigrette: asparagus, mushrooms, green beans

Raw and served with dip or plain: sugar snap peas, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, grape tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers, green beans

If you have an Asian supermarket near you, try Okinawan purple sweet potatoes.  I boil the until tender and have them as snacks.  They’re SO good!

I absolutely love roasting vegetables! I toss them with olive oil, salt, and pepper; then, I heat them for 30-40 minutes at 400 degrees in the oven. Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, kale—they’re all delicious!

@juliana192:  Have you tried steaming any veggies? Sometimes instead of plain water I add a bit of soy sauce so the veggies get a hint of saltiness.

My favorites are roasted, in stir fry, in soup, or with cheese. We try to mix it up so as not to get bored because we eat a ton of vegetables.

@juliana192:  stir-fries make it super easy. I also roast veggies a lot. And fresh green beans with TONS of garlic!! So yum. 

We do like carrots, though, and one of my favorite ways is to basically steam them with orange juice instead of water and some grated ginger. So yummy.

@juliana192:  i cut up mixed vegetables & roast then with olive oil, salt, pepper & a pinch of sugar.  Soups are also a great way to pack a lot of veggies (and beans) into one meal, you can mix it up by blending some or all of the veggies depending on how thick/chunky you want your soup at any given meal.  And smoothies are an easy way to help fill your veggie quota.
