How to fit in more veggies every day?

I'd love to hear how everybody fits in more veggies besides eating salads and putting lettuce & tomato on sandwiches. I'm running out of ideas and getting bored with the usual. Thx!

Make a big pot of soup with a range of vegetables. Put it in individual serving containers and warm and eat with lunch or as a snack. It's tasty and good for you.

I use onions, carrots, summer squash, zucchini, parsnips, celery, escarole, green beans and other vegetables that look good. A can of crushed tomatoes and a base of chicken or vegetrable stock and some water serve as the base. That's LOTS of vegetables.

I like to put chopped veggies: onion, red pepper and zucchini are my favorites - broccoli, too, in omelets: Chop and stir fry in a non stick pan with cooking spray, then pour the eggs over: A veggie serving at breakfast!
Also make veggie spreads - baba ganoush or hummus or my favorite: Roasted Red Pepper and Eggplant Spread (recipe up on the Healthy Recipes thread) to snack on.

I second the soup idea, too!

I like to make veggie burritos: sliver lots of peppers, onions, mushrooms, zucchinis (anything left in your fridge, basically), saute with some olive oil, garlic, and cayenne. Then wrap in a whole-wheat tortilla, with a bit of low-fat sour cream. *So* good.

I put as many vegetables into my eggwhite omelet or scramble as I have in the house. I'll steam the green ones first in the pan, drain off the water and then add everything else. I can easily get a couple of servings in first thing in the morning.
