Food Talk And Fabulous Finds - What are your favorite vegetables?

This should be fun. Let's all post our absolute favorite vegetable or vegetables to cook with. :)

Mine are bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, and garlic. I L-O-V-E bell peppers, and will pretty much put them in anything. And it's only natural to have the others with them, because they compliment each other so well!

Whatever I haven't tried yet. I like most vegetables, but I love the adventure of trying something new.

Of the ones I know I like, artichoke hearts top my list. Canned if necessary, frozen preferred. I like them mixed into my stand-by potluck salad.

Assorted fresh, frozen, and/or canned veggies
vinaigrette dressing (bottled or homemade)
extra seasonings
nuts or cheese optional

Toss (frozen veggies can still be frozen) with vinaigrette dressing and refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours (to allow frozen veggies to thaw and to marinate the veggies).

One of my favorite mixes is the Walmart asparagus stir fry blend, frozen artichoke hearts, sliced fresh onion and bell pepper and low-calorie italian dressing with a packet or tablespoon of ranch dressing mix powder, and some grated or shredded asiago cheese (not alot just a couple tablespoons).

Cabbage, spinach, broccoli, red onion, peppers (any kind!), lettuce, carrots, cauliflower, green beans, cucumbers, zucchini and other squashes, and my faithful standby: the potato (any kind :) )

Everything except mushrooms in any form and raw onions. Some veggies I like more and some less, but I will eat all of them.

i actually can't remember any i don't like. if i don't like it one way, prepared differently i love it. like roasted brussel sprouts. great! even my kids like them. and almost anything tastes better roasted or sauted in garlic.

i love sweet potatoes just plain. they are carmelized just from baking a long time.

i loooved zuchinni as a kid. so many things are tasty with zuchinni. now i look forward to growing my own. very easy to grow.

katy, I'll eat anything roasted! And I do think roasted brussel sprouts are like a little bit of heaven in every bite.

Cucumbers, radishes, carrots, celery, corn, onions, garlic, mushrooms. peppers, spinach, cabbage, zucchini, avocados. Don't love tomatoes but will eat them

Bok choy, red and yellow peppers, onions, garlic, mushrooms, spinach and eggplant.

I wish I liked raw carrots, but I just can't stand them unless they're dipped in something that masks the flavor.

10-24-2010, 11:44 PM
Carrots, celery, lettuce, cucumbers, broccoli, corn, peas, potatoes (yummy).

I really can't stand peppers of any kind though or mushrooms. Other than that I'm pretty open to veggies.

10-25-2010, 02:09 AM
Asparagus is at the top of my list, and then green beans, potatoes, mushrooms, broccoli, spinach... yum.

I really can't stand peppers of any kind though

I feel like I should! And yet. I like them in my salad. Sometimes. Maybe.

10-25-2010, 02:34 AM
TOMATOES. Even though they're really a fruit haha. If I had to eat just one thing for the rest of my life, it would be tomatoes XD Romas and grape tomatoes are my favourite, but I'll eat any kind available.

10-25-2010, 03:08 AM
Asparagussssss, spaghetti squash, chayote squash, yellow squash, onion, EVERYTHING basically.

10-25-2010, 06:55 PM
Green beans, sugar snap peas, peas, zucchini, asparagus, onions, bell peppers. mmmmmmmmmm veggies are yummy.

snow peas, brussel sprouts, zuccini, acorn squash, bean sprouts

do fresh herbs count? I love fresh herbs like rosemary & sage

oh, and I love potatos. I haven't had them in over a month, I actually fondled one at the market last night and had to set it down and walk away. Worse than ice cream for me.

I have read that bell peppers are good food for weight loss. Since then, I listed bell pepper as one of my favorite food. And I also love eating raw foods. Most are fruits and vegetable for my diet Like cabbage and tomatoes.;)

I don't even think of onions and garlic as vegetables; they're so vital to the taste of just about any savory dish that they're a given. I think about onions and garlic the way a fish thinks about water. :D

I like:

Asparagus, Brussels sprouts, Cabbage, Daikon radishes, Eggplant...heh, I really could carry that list out to Zucchini! I'm happy that my list of oogy vegetables is shorter than the list of yummy ones.

Oogy vegetables: mushrooms, raw celery, canned beets.

Chinese broccoli, spinach, bok choy, raw mushrooms, green beans, cooked broccoli, garlic, onions, and raw carrots. :carrot:

I really can't eat cooked mushrooms, raw broccoli, or tomatoes. haha.

brussels sprouts (roasted!), kale, sweet potatoes, and delicata squash are at the top of my list right now. And if garlic counts as a vegetable, definitely that too!

11-09-2010, 05:20 AM
Cucumber, Cabbage, Carrot & Mushrooms
