I have to say beets (Dwight Schrute would love me). Both the root and the greens. I love them roasted, but nothing beats (har har) a salad of beet greens with pickled beets on top.
Brussels sprouts - halved, tossed in olive oil and S+P, roasted.
Cauliflower - steamed, roasted.
Cabbage - sautéed, roasted, raw.
Broccoli - sautéed, steamed, roasted.
Kale - sautéed with lemon juice and butter (especially good when 1/2 kale 1/2 cabbage), baked (kale chips).
Rock on, cruciferous vegetables. I love you so much that I'm almost sorry I have to eat you.
My favorite vegetables FOR STEAMING:
brussel sprouts in season
green onions (scallions)
My favorite vegetables FOR BAKING WITH NOTHING ADDED:
My favorite vegetables to eat RAW:
Vegetables I don't like but eat anyway:
Baby spinach! The MOST versatile vegetable ever!
I Love kale - any way you prepare it!
I love baked cauliflower
I love broccoli - any way except raw
OK I could go on for days and days. I Love Vegetables especially if they're cooked in lard (beef, pork or duck mmmmmmmmm)
Kale is one of my favorites as well! I'm loving kale chips (coat lightly with olive oil and salt, bake @350 until crisp...20 min?), but I also love it raw added to a salad. I bet it would be good as a burger topping, too...mmm, I might try that tonight!
I also love squashes:
- zucchini & yellow squash cooked in butter in a cast iron pan on the grill
- spaghetti squash used in place of spaghetti noodles
- zucchini sliced and used in place of lasagna noodles
- butternut squash cubed and roasted (great if you're searching for the potato feel without the potato)
Yum, I'm hungry now...8)
I adore carrots. In fact I like carrots so much I'm surprised they are good for me. My favorite way to eat them? I like them straight out of the my own organic garden, raw and unpeeled. Steaming up baby carrots with some Ghee or Coconut oil is also a possibility if I want to get fancy about it.
Carrots!!! then any leafy green things.
Each week I buy a bag of organic frozen spinach (chopped) and a bag of organic broccoli crowns. I eat those with some sort of meat at lunch and add an olive oil/vinegar/mustard dressing over the top. It's delish and helps me get some greens. I don't really do veggies unless they are super simple and preferably mixed up in something. I know my weakness and try to address it this way.
