I'm going through a brussel sprout phase for some strange reason. I think maybe it's because I saw them cooked on a show a month or so back, and ever since then I've been craving them. So I've been eating them often.
Also- spinach is always a go-to veggie for me. I add spinach to anything and everything and I love it.

What I have been eating a lot of lately:

grape tomatoes, baby bella mushroom, seedless cukes - put in a bowl. To this I add fresh lime juice, sea salt and a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil, and Mrs Dash lime chili Mexican spice. Very tasty.

Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight.

We eat a lot of carrots, onions, beans(pinto, garbanzo and the fresh grean kind), zuchini, red cabbage cooked with fried red onions and balsamic ving., and I eat a lot of salsa (pico de gio) and green cabbage raw in a jelled salad. I truly love veggies and attribute my good health to them.

I usually have all of the following in my fridge every week:

Broccoli
Baby carrots
Celery
Green Beans
Mushrooms
Romaine Lettuce
Cucumber
Tomatoes (grape, plum and vine ripened)
Zucchini
Eggplant
Peppers, red, yellow, orange

I always keep fresh salsa on hand... it is a great condiment or side. I even add it to ground turkey and make turkey burgers that way.

I always have onions and garlic and I always have a variety of fresh herbs. I also have a spice rack filled with dried herbs and spices.

I will roast zucchini and eggplant with a touch of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh garlic and some Italian seasoning.

I do a lot of sauteed veggies with again about a tablespoon of EVOO... I add garlic, onion and herbs to everything.

I do a green bean "stew" by sauteing onion and garlic in EVOO, add about 2 lbs. of green beans (extra fine is my favorite), a 15 oz can of either diced tomatoes or crushed tomatoes, with salt and pepper to taste. It's an incredibly wonderful, satisfying and healthy side dish.

I have a ton of veggie prep ideas. Let me know if you want more. Perhaps we should do a recipe exchange. Sauteing is not a bad thing if you are doing it yourself and controlling how you saute. I also use a lot cooking sprays. I only use olive oil and canola oil in any of my recipes. I also substitute salt with things like Essence or Emeril or other wild flavor combos to give more zest and taste. I use balsamic vinegar and lemon/lime juice to add umph as well!

I love this topic! Can you tell??? emoticon

I'm in need of changing up my vegetable selections, but running out of ideas. I'd like folks to post the veggies you're currently eating. Maybe we could periodically do this so we keep our selections fresh.

Currently in my fridge or pantry, I have:
* green beans
* baking potatoes
* portabello mushrooms
* butternut squash
* sweet potatoes
* yellow peppers
* baby carrots
* carrots, peas, corn medley (frozen)
