Tasty ways to prepare vegetables

I know that I need to add more vegetables to my diet, but I don't like the taste of plain, raw vegetables.

What are some of your favorite ways to prepare vegetables, without adding a lot of calories or fat?

I love steamed vegetables with season salt or vinegar. If you're watching your sodium, there's always potassium "salt." Or you could add a little parmesan cheese. But if none of those are hiding the taste enough, you can puree them and sneak them into just about anything.

In my wok I bring 1/4-1/2 cup of chicken broth to a boil (depends on if you're making a little or a lot). Add crushed garlic & herbs and then add veggies. Put the lid on and steam for 2-3 minutes. Toss and steam some more if necessary. The garlic and the chicken broth taste 'buttery' somehow without needing to add butter.

I like to julienne carrots and zuchinni (I have something that looks like a veggie peeler but juliennes instead). Brocolli, artichoke, yellow squash, asparagus, peas, peppers, spinach, etc - all wonderful this way. Sometimes I toss in a few ounces of pasta and use 1/2 & 1/2 chicken broth and white wine - this makes an awesome sauce and is really yummy.

I love Cauliflower Poppers ~ got the recipe from WW. Cut up a head of cauliflower, sprinkle on mix of 1 TBSP each of pepper, salt, cumin, and chili powder. Bake on 400 for 10 min, stirring once. LOVE it!!!!!!!

Almost anything on the grill - asparagus, carrots, zucchini, onions - spray with PAM Olive Oil or brush lightly with olive oil (not all fat is bad) and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Or toss in a bowl with Cumin, Clove, Cayenne., etc.

Make losts and use the leftovers in an omellete, or in a spinach wrap.
