I think I cook zuccini/squash, eggplant, bell peppers, tomatoes a lot because they are easy to wash, cut, and cook, and I won't be tired of the dishes made from them.

But I don't think I'd get enough nutrition from them since I'd be lacking leafy vegetables.

OK well FIRST OF ALL, I don't eat few vegetables. I eat mass quantities of vegetables, all the time, every day.

I eat vegetables that are in season. So right now I have been eating a lot of asparagus. I love salads. I have MANY favorite vegetables. I like to cook them, and eat them.

So my favorite vegetables to cook and eat? Here goes - in semi-alphabetical order.

1. asparagus
arugula (rocket greens)
alfalfa sprouts
artichokes

2. Brussels Sprouts
green beans
beets
Boston lettuce
Broccoli
Broccoli rabe

3. carrots
cabbage - all types
cucumbers
cauliflower
collard greens
celery


4. dandelion greens

5. endive
escarole
eggplant

6. kale

7. lettuce - ALL TYPES
mushrooms - all kinds
mustard greens

8. onions
okra

9. parsnips
peppers - all kinds
peas


10. radishes
radicchio

11. squash - summer
squash - winter - all kinds of squash
spinach

12. turnips
turnip greens
tomatoes

12. water cress

13. zucchini

13. yucca

14. zucchini

If I missed anything, I love those too! I'm not counting potatoes or sweet potatoes as a vegetable. I love them.

Zucchini and asparagus marinated and grilled on George. There are nights one of those is my entire dinner.

My best friend and I have bulk cooking weekends every few months and we use a lot of bell peppers (all colors), spinach and kale and leeks (in place of onions, which I am intolerant to) for that. We also make our own salsa, so tomatoes and jalapenos for that.
