Hmmm, I don't have just one! I'll go with squash as well, though! I especially like butternut. My heart will always belong to >> though!

Do potatoes count?

I haven't really eaten many winter veggies in the past. I'm dubious about non-carrot and potato root vegetables and extremely wary of greens that require cooking. This will be my breakout season! We bought swiss chard and rutabagas at the market this weekend, and my bf promises to make them in a way that will be delicious. We'll see...I'm not optimistic about that chard.

I think rutabaga is the biggest P.I.T.A! Maybe I didn't prepare it well, but it takes time and hard physical labor to get it into edible pieces, then after it's cooked it's not that great tasting anyway.

My current favorite fall vegetable is probably kale. Do sweet potatoes count? They'd be a good second runner-up.

I miss my summer squash... Considering I'm pretty limited about my "favorites" with vegetables, I'm gonna have to say my most recent favorite is Spinach Versatile and really yummy when it's seasoned well!

I'm not sure if it's my favorite, but I like cabbage. Oh, and broccoli :-)

Squash, hands down.

Buttercup, butternut, acorn, sweet dumpling, carnival, spaghetti... oh I could go on

The one winter squash I'm not all that crazy about, though, is kabocha (a.k.a. Japanese Pumpkin). Its flesh is too dry. I'm sure there are winter squashes I haven't tried yet, but this is the only one I dislike a little bit of the ones I've eaten.

Squash is the category that includes all sorts of pumpkins: butternut, acorn, etc. Summer squash are zucchinis and things like that.

Green beans. We eat them several times a week. Broccoli is a close second. I also like cauliflower a lot, but my DD doesn't. I like acorn squash but don't fix it often.

Hey baffled - you can fix swiss chard any way you fix spinach, including raw. I also have a number of not-exactly-low-calorie ways I like it. One that's not too bad is to saute lots of onion and garlic (mushrooms too, if you like) and then make a white sauce incorporating them. Wash and cut the chard into smaller pieces. When the sauce is done, pile the chard into the frying pan on top of the sauce and cover it. After it starts to wilt, uncover it and mix it into the sauce. The amount of sauce will vary with how much chard you have, but you need less than you think. You want to coat the chard rather than have it swimming in the sauce.

Favorite fall veggie for me is hard squash - any kind. We had a delicata last night, and I have a sweet mama and and a baby blue hubbard waiting in the wings. My DH has also talked me into making borscht this weekend - how can anything with beets not be tasty?
