I love to sauté green peppers with onions and garlic. I put that mixture on top of chicken, mixed with pasta or in an omelet.
Saute them in a bit of olive oil and as much garlic as you like. Saute until soft.
Make stuffed mushrooms. Take off the stems and cut into small pieces and mix with garlic, bread crumbs and some parmesan cheese. Stuff the mixture into the mushroom cap. Drizzle olive oil on top of each one and bake 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.
How about steamed green beans topped with seasame seeds for crunch?
Bake or broil a tomato and add some parm or romano ontop.
Steam Califlower and add some yogurt and mash...tastes like mashed potatoes to me. Maybe with with paprika
How about sweet and sour red cabbage?
Green Peppers....Raw, stuffed with chicken or sirlion and rice, in salads, stir fry, soups, as a garnish.

Roasted asparagus. Splash of olive oil and mixed herb shaker.
Steam zucchini with a couple of cloves of garlic. Once done, remove the garlic and mash up, add back into zucchini. Sooo good. Saute zucchini, fresh corn, together, then add some grape tomatoes and fresh basil together. Saute a couple of extra minutes. This is delish too!
Have you ever tried roasting broccoli? I thought it sounded strange (I love to roast my vegetables, but I've always eaten my broccoli steamed) but it is out of this world good. Just toss the broccoli with some crushed red pepper, minced garlic, salt and extra virgin olive oil and roast on a baking sheet at 400 degrees F. Once the broccoli has started to brown a little on top, add some grated parmesan cheese and return to the oven for a couple of minutes. Before serving, you can throw a little more parm on top and maybe a squeeze of lemon juice.
Also, if you're looking for a main dish, this http://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com/vegetari an-quinoa-chili/ chili is insanely delicious and really filling.
