    Favorite ways to prepare veggies?

    I am hoping to see some of the old pro's favorite ways to prepare veggies. Do you just steam them and toss them with butter? These are my favorites, but I'm always looking for more:

    Veggies in homemade marinara
    Mushrooms browned in olive oil w/garlic, onion powder S&P
    Steamed broccoli with butter S&P

    What about you?
    I feed my healthy cells and starve the rest.

    Waist circumference:
    50(start)/40.5(current)/35>(goal)

    Sauteed in coconut oil. Anything and everything.

    I prefer them RAW, or a little steamed...

    I have only recently discovered the joys of roasted vegetables. So good! Toss with coconut oil and herbs, throw in the oven at 400 degrees for 45-60 minutes.

    Roasted is where it's at. Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, any root vegetable (carrot, parsnip, sweet potato, turnip, rutabaga).

    I also like this Brussels sprouts recipe from Alton Brown:

    I prepare my veggies by giving them to Gorbag. Then I have seconds on the meat.

    Your mom was right after all about the vegetables Paleobird! So be a nice little girl now, and eat up the large carrot that you have "forgotten" on your plate...

    Mom also thought that brown rice and tofu were good for us. She did the best she could with the knowledge of her time.

    But, to answer the OP non-flippantly. I do eat some veggies but more as a garnish or flavor enhancer to the meat. Examples: caramelized onions and mushrooms in a gorgonzola sauce over my steak yesterday. Oh yum. Bell pepper strips used as a delivery device for my liver pate'. Avocado/tomato fan salad. That is alternating avocado and tomato lengthwise slices laid out in a fan shape on the plate and drizzled with some oil and vinegar.

    I also include a lot of non-plant veggies in my diet. Seaweed (algae) as a salad or in crunchy nori sheets (SeaSnax) and mushrooms (fungi). The more I research about these two types of non plant non animal foods, the more interesting they are.

    Very thinly sliced cauliflower roasted until dark is great.

    I like what I call "Spanish-style vegetables". Saute diced bacon until cooked but not crisp and set aside. Saute chopped onion and garlic in the bacon fat. Add to steamed broccoli or any other cooked vegetable you have that needs bacon and bacon fat.

    roasted, sauteed or grilled for me. i think paul jaminet says that these high heat methods aren't as good as steaming or boiling, but damn they taste better.
