Try roasting cauliflower at 425 with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper.  Roasted veggies are great!

@MrsGatito:  Not sure how you are preparing your broccoli, but my favorite way to eat broccoli is as follows: fill a gallon zip lock bag with a tablespoon or two of olive oil, add minced garlic, salt, and peper and mix. Put in broccoli and shake around. Bake in oven for about 12 minutes at 375. It is delicious!

I also like to saute spinach on the stove top. Add some olive oil and bacon bits- it is delicious!

@MrsGatito:  Oh, I also like to sautee green beans with onions, butter, minced garlic. salt, and pepper. You could use olive oil to make more healthy.

@MrsGatito:  

Some of my but not necessarily DH’s favorites:

asparagus with bacon

brussel sprouts with a balsamic glaze

 

I really like allrecipes.com for just about any kind of recipe, you can even search by ingredient now!

You can never go wrong with Brussels Sprouts and bacon (and a little balsamic)!

Seeing someone mention asparagus triggered another one for me. Mix spicy mustard and olive oil in a small dish. Baste over asparagus and add kosher salt. Bake in oven until slightly tender. So good!

I like sugar snap peas or green beans sauteed with olive oil and minced garlic, then tossed with a little soy sauce.

Roasted brussells sprouts with balsamic is good, too.

And I used to love asparagus roasted with parmesan shavings, but asparagus was one of my biggest food aversions during pregnancy; my son is almost 11 months old and I still find asparagus repulsive.

@MrsGatito:  Commenting to follow. I like asparagus. We drizzle it with lemon juice and oliver oil, sprinkle some sea salt and pepper with garlic and pop it in the oven at 325 for about 10 minutes or until its still kind of snappy but not too soft.

I like  fresh green beans with a little of Newman’s Own cesear salad dressing (not the creamy kind) and a sprinkle of parmasan cheese. Sauté them in pan, not too much dressing or they will be soggy. They have a nice peppery taste

We love yellow squash (the long ones) and zucchini – I cut them into thin circles and then saute them on the stove in olive oil, salt, and pepper.  When they are done (see-through), I put them in a serving bowl and add feta cheese.  It’s amazing, really.  We’ve never had leftovers of it and it’s just too easy.

 i shop in season.  when i go to the grocery story, i see what is a good price.  i pretty much roast all veggies.

cut, toss with olive oil, add some salt and pepper and bake for an hour at 400.

you can add any seasoning to chance the taste.

try mccormicks grill mates or perfect pinch, they have blended seasonings

I also like asparagus baked with a sprinkle of fresh parmesan cheese baked at the same temp as the cauliflower.

I buy shaved brussels sprouts (so to FI they feel more like salad lettuce- he hates the texture of brussels sprouts!) and dice up some sweet potatoes, drizzle some olive oil on top and mix them together.  I roast them for 30 minutes at 450.  I dont add salt or cheese on mine but FI does. Its one of those healthy veggie recipes i absolutely CRAVE!
