Default Share your favorite veggie!

What's your favorite veggie and how do like preparing it?

I personally love spaghetti squash since I feel like it's really versatile and I never get tired of it.
I'm a big fan of carrots also but only really have 1-2 ways I like to eat them! Shredded in a salad or raw with a greek yogurt veggie dip. (I can't stand how sweet they get after I cook them.)

Please share yours!

***I love broccoli.....steamed or lightly boiled with salt and pepper alone. Or raw with ranch dressing.
***I also love spinach cooked into an egg omlet with feta cheese....yummm. Or baby spinach in a salad with olive oil & vinegar, salt n pepper.
***Asparagus is good baked. And delicious when baked wrapped in crispy bacon (not often because of the bacon)
***Corn, boiled and served with salt and pepper and a little butter melted in.

Start203, I actually just saw on pinterest a recipe for asparagus wrapped in thinly sliced beef instead of bacon. It still looked delicious and not all the fat from the bacon! I think I might try it.

I probably won't get to experiment in the kitchen for a couple weeks (moving), but once I try it, I'll be sure to let you know!

I love eating vegetables every day and I make sure to add veggies on my daily meal. I love zucchini and I used to substitute it to regular pasta. Just thinly slice the zucchini add the sauce and other ingredients. It is the best way to have a healthy and delicious food. I also love celery dip in ranch dressing.
