    Favorite Veggie Ideas

    Primal Fuel
    I think that sometimes I don't know what veggies to buy, cook, or eat, so I just give up and have meat alone. I know there are some Zero Carb people around here, but I'm not talking about doing that-- I want to know your favorite primal veggie recipes/meals! I think that veggies have lots of important things in them and I'm worried I'm giving myself heaps of deficiencies.. !

    P.S. Not 'salad.' I eat lots of raw leaves.

    Try grilling oiled asparagus. It's awesome.
    I refuse to cook carrots unless it's in a stir fry.
    I love grilled/ sauteed peppers, onions, asparagus, and tomato.

    I was shocked to realize that I love zucchini- I slice it thinly with a mandoline (you could also use a carrot peeler) and use it as a noodle replacement. Jicama is another fave of mine- a little on the starchy side, but a ton of water and very refreshing with lime juice and chili or just plain. I also like to make a ton of roasted veggies- garlic, red onions, peppers, brussels sprouts, turnips, carrots- just toss them with veggies and seasoning and stick them in the oven, making sure to check every once in awhile. Cauliflower rice is super-easy too- lightly steam your cauli and then grate (food processor is great for this too. Pretty much any veg tastes great when sauteed with butter- I cook a lot of spinach (with garlic) and asparagus this way.

    All sounds great-- I do love veggies, the 'liking' part isn't the problem, its the 'doing!' I think my budget makes things hard. I LOVE asparagus. My favorite way is the really big giant organic asparagus, oiled and grilled, ON A STICK! it's so amazing. I love Brussels sprouts, too. I need to get a roasting pan and just do thte medley you're talking about. I've never had turnips... what are they like?

    I add mushrooms, bell peppers, and onions to my omelet. Other than that I'm with you OP. These suggestions look delicious!

    Slice bacon into lardons (matchstick size bits) and cook. Remove bacon.

    Add mushrooms and coat with fat. Once mostly cooked, add in asparagus broken into 2 inch peices, and canned or frozen artichoke hearts. Drizzle red wine vinegar and throw in minced garlic.

    Plate, salt and pepper and chopped tarragon. Top with a soft poached egg. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

    It's a root vegetable, a member of cabbage family. Actually it's one of my favorite veggie dish, usually what I do with it is cut off the greens for steaming; cut off the stems to simmer for veggie broth; steam or sautee the turnips with potatoes for a yummy root veggie dish.

    Broccoli is easy. Leave it as a bunch and upend it in some simmering water until it turns bright green and al dente. Pull it out, shake the water off, and cut the florets onto a plate. Add butter.

    Parsnips and carrots are also dead easy. Peel them and stick them in the pan with whatever you're roasting (beef, chicken, etc)

    Tomatoes thrown in a pan for a quick sear are delicious

    Wilted spinach with bacon grease. Or sauteed spinach with cream and parmesan and a pinch of nutmeg

    When i was a little kid my mother convinced us that frozen peas were a dessert. Freezy Peas - they're just like dippin' dots ice cream. . . . . My mother is twisted XD

    If you are on a budget, frozen veggies or farmers market veggies tend to be a lot cheaper than straight up grocery store veggies
