Favorite vegetable dish

Does anyone have a favorite vegetable dish? I have to admit, I am a meat and potatoes kind of guy so sometimes I cook a meal without a green vegetable....Ok so shoot me!

  1. I stopped shooting anyone years ago... but my very favorite vegetable in the wide, wide world is eggplant. So any dish which incorporates that vegetable is fine with me: caponata, parmigiana, gratin, grilled, baba ganoush. etc. I may not have a green veggie every meal but I try to have at least one veggie dish each day. A tasty way to eat your green leafy veggies is a quick sauté with EVOO, garlic, crushed red pepper flakes and a tin of anchovies. Delicioso!

    1. At our house we regularly include a quick saute of spinach, dandelion greens, swiss chard, with garlic and sometimes pine nuts or anchovies. Another tasty quick veggie is sauted Haricots verts (those skinny green beans) with shallots in olive oil (or butter).

      1. Take any vegetable and roast it. You won't be disappointed.

          I'm with you, prob roast veggies, always diff. too, several times a week (although it's slowed a bit since we're renovating) but sometimes our dinner doesn't have a meat at all when I have all these roasted veggies (on a pile of br rice, w/ shredded cheese.).

        2. Chopped red bell peppers, cucumbers, red onion in a vinagarette.

          1. I love vegetables! If I had to pick a favorite it would be spinach or bok choy. Garlic and lemon on a lightly sauteed fresh spinach is awesome. A little cooking sauce, a drop of sesame oil, and a tiny bit of soy sauce on bok choy, I can eat buckets of!
