I'm not sure what veggies you like/dislike but ...
corn: toss into salads (with balsamic vinaigrette, crunchy romaine and cheddar cheese) mix with diced tomatoes and pesto, serve over flatbread stir into potato salad
Cabbage: mix napa cabbage with peanut sauce and top with sesame seeds for a quick asian side dish use whole green cabbage leaves to make egg salad wraps serve tuna or salmon salad over thinly sliced red cabbage and carrots
Kale: thinly slice and toss into an italian-style salad blend a handful into your favorite morning berry smoothie use it in place of chips with hummus or other favorite veggie dips
Green Beans: slice on the bias and toss with vinaigrette as a side salad dip into tahini or hummus as a snack chop into 1/4 in pieces and add to any main dish salad
Beets: grate with carrots and toss with crumpled goat cheese or feta cheese, walnuts, and balsamic vinaigrette for a salad mix into your go-to dinner salad pile on top of a burger or veggie patty
Zucchini: shred into strips and use with your favorite pasta sauce layer with slices of mozzarella cheese and tomoatoes, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with snipped fresh basil, salt and ground black pepper toss thin slices with lemon vinaigrette and shavings of parmesan cheese for a salad
I found that cutting baby carrots or zucchini into small pieces and microwaving them WITHOUT anything on them (no water, no salt, no oil, etc) for about 6-9 minutes. Then letting them cool, they taste almost like CANDY!!
These are two of my new treats in my Healthy Life!

I like to make oven baked potatoes, onions, carrots, red beets and whatever else you like. I peel and cut everything into same size pieces, put them in a large bowl, drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and put all on a roasting pan and cook at 350 for about 45 minutes. Smells great and tastes delicious.

Just take asparagus , drizzle with olive oil , sprinkle with salt, pepper, parmasean cheese, then bake in he oven (on cookie sheet) or on the bbq until tender ...usually about 10-15 minute. Right before you serve it, squirt a little lemon juice over it . Delicious!
Roast with a drizzile of olive oil (or just spray with cooking spray) and some seasonings. Grill them. You can grate cauliflower and treatit like rice. You can also steam it and use like mashed potatoes. I like spaghetti squash baked in the oven, then you pull it off the shell with a fork, and it is sort of like spaghetti. It's great with butter and garlic or used as a pasta substitute with meat and sauce. You can also slice zucchini really thin and saute to use like pasta. Or try one of the many different frozen veggies with sauces available at the store.
