Thanks for the responses.

Just please keep in mind this is not "what are your favorite food". It's meant to be the vegies you not only like but also cook *frequently*, something like you eat and cook them over and over again. A staple as some said.

Green beans. Mushrooms. Baby spinach. Zucchini.

Tomatoes and black beans also figure prominently in much of my cooking.

That's still more appropriate than garlic, onions, mushrooms, corns that were included by others. I wouldn't count garlic and onions because you usualy use them as seasoning to cook other, main vegetables. I thought corns belong to grains rather than vegetables?

Asparagus
Broccoli
Brussel Sprouts
Corn
Kale
Green beans
Carrots
Potatoes of all kinds
Peas
Beans
Bell peppers
Onions
Mushrooms
Grape/cherry tomatoes

Not in that order. Just in all sorts of combinations, and sometimes mixed with rice or pasta. We love roasted veggies. I don't think it matters if it's a legume or grain, I still consider them vegetables, because I'm not using them as a starch. I usually try to make a protein, a starch, and some kind of vegetable or mix of vegetables. Sometimes I leave off the starch if we're having a starchy vegetable. I definitely consider onions as a vegetable and not a condiment or seasoning because I frequently use 1/2 to a whole onion in a meal for 2 people. I love them.

Many of these I would never have eaten as a child/young adult. I learned to try them over time and found that, when cooked properly, I like almost any vegetable. I rotate in a few others, like zucchini, butternut squash, cabbage, celery, snow peas, and a few others.
