Any creative veggie ideas?

I am trying to get more veggies into my weight watchers like diet, but I am getting really bored with my carrot sticks and peas. I am not picky at all- so I'll try anything. Anybody have creative new ideas for me to try?

Make soup...start with low sodium stock (like chicken or vegetable) add all kinds of veggies like carrots, onions (saute lightly first), celery, parsnips, spinach, crushed tomatoes, zucchini, summer squash, and anything else you may have in you veggie bin or freezer. It's delicious and fills you up. I make big pots and eat them for days. I eat big bowls knowing I am getting my veggies and fiber and not tons of calories. You can add chicken or turkey or sprinkle a little parmesan cheese on top.

You could always slice up cucumbers and dip that into hummus.

I make an easy stovetop frittata for breakfast that has a lot of vegetables in it - broccoli, asparagus, tomato, spinach, etc. You knock out a couple of servings of vegetables for breakfast!

I make a creamy soup that is virtually all vegetables (tomato, carrot, celery) and can be frozen in ice cube trays and popped in the microwave for a quick meal.

A veggie sandwich - spinach, tomato, cucumber, mushroom, sprouts, etc. - whatever you want on whole grain bread and the condiment of your choice.

salsa on salads, chicken, whatever you eat. Shred root veggies like turnip or rutabaga on a salad. Juliene peppers to dip in things. Or put peppers, zuchini and onions in eggs in the morning. Eat coleslaw with a homemade o/o vinagrette.


Just try some new veggies.

I'm not fond of food preparation of any kind, so I buy packages of the pre-cut fruits and vegetables in the produce section of the grocery store and use them as my snack foods. I especially like raw broccoli and can down half a bag in one sitting - and not feel guilty!

Chicken broth is healthier for you than stock, try zucchini, celery, spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, just go down the isle & try things, make a salad, an omelet, soup, whatever you want, be creative.
