    Boil and mash a sweet potato and a turnip together. Add butter.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    One way to mix it up is with some ethnic influences: I do curries with a great variety of veggies, usually starting with coconut oil, ginger and garlic, carrots, onions, cabbage, tomatoes, etc, then full coconut milk, let simmer...I eat these like stews, no rice or anything.
    Or try Szechuan/Hunan--you can adapt those recipes with coconut oil instead of peanut oil. Most seem like a variation on ginger, garlic, green onion, soy sauce...try Mrs Chiang's Szaechuan Kitchen, excellent cookbook.
    I'm going to try that asparagus / sauce recipe (above)!

    i'm currently somewhat addicted to a red cabbage recipe in Nourishing Traditions.

    shred cabbage and put in big pot

    in a small pan, mix 1 bay leaf, 1/2 tsp cloves, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp honey, 1/4 tsp cinnamon & bring to boil

    pour over the cabbage & cook on med-lo heat for about 20 min

    you can an add a chopped apple at this point, personally i don't really think it adds much

    when the cabbage is done, top it off w/ 2 tbs butter and a tbs of vinegar (i use apple cider vinegar)

    it is so good! adding the butter and vinegar at the end keeps it from having that strong "cabbage-y" smell and flavor

    Bacon fat. Gently sautee anything in bacon fat and it takes delicious. Find some strong herb combinations too (google them), it makes a world of difference.
