I really dislike veggies. I typically buy cauliflower and broccoli because ofmthr health benefits and ease of cooking. I just cannot find a way to flavor them to where I actually enjoy them. I've tried Mrs Dash garlic and herb seasoning etc and still bleh. Another thing is I would like to take them to work but I hate
them even more after they've been microwaved. I would love to eat them raw uncoiled because I know that's best any ideas in flavoring that way also. PLEASE HELP!!!

Here's another:


Thinly slice either European or gourmet seedless cucumbers.

If you don't need it to be a meatless veggie recipe, here's one that I love.


Take a pound of ground turkey and brown it with chopped onion and celery.

If you're finding veggies to bland you might try some Indian or southern asian dishes, googling curry vegetables should bring up several recipes from mild to rather hot and with various vegetables. We have a restaurant in town that makes a killer cauliflower and potato curry.


Ginger root and garlic are also good for a kick of flavor, use the fresh root not the powdered ginger. All you need to do is peel the root and either grate or mince it and add to stirfried veggies along with the garlic and serve with brown rice.

Here's one my family loves.
Roasted Cauliflower Recipe

Ingredients



  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, peeled and coarsely minced
  • Lemon juice from half a lemon
  • Olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper or for a stronger kick use red pepper flakes
  • Parmesan cheese


Method

1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut cauliflower into florets and put in a single layer in an oven-proof baking dish. Toss in the garlic. Sprinkle lemon juice over cauliflower and drizzle each piece with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. If the oven hasn't reached 400°F yet, set aside until it has.


2 Place casserole in the hot oven, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is lightly brown. Test with a fork for desired doneness. Fork tines should be able to easily pierce the cauliflower. Remove from oven and sprinkle generously with Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.


Serves 4.
