Who has some very nutritious, but super easy, vegetable recipes?

Asked by Kardamom (30954points) May 1st, 2017

This Q is in response to This Recent Q.

I fear that I may get carpal tunnel if I give all the answers, myself. Lol. : P

So we need super easy recipes that pack a lot of nutritional punch. It would also be best if the ingredients list was on the short and inexpensive side; and the list of ingredients was easy to come by in most regular grocery stores; and that the preparations can easily be done with a pot or pan, a toaster oven, or a crock pot (I think our friend has a crock pot). Last, but not least, we need recipes that taste good.

The recipes can be anything from soups, to salads, to stews, to side dishes that go nicely with meat. We’ve just got to get more veggies into our friend : )

OK go!

Roasted potatoes.
I get those small red potatoes, cut in fourths, coat them with olive oil, salt and pepper and sprinkle parmesan cheese on them. Cover a pan with aluminum foil so you don’t burn the pan and bake in oven for 25 minutes at 400 degrees.
You could also use a toaster oven.

With asparagus now in season in California, I have it at least five days a week, sometimes twice a day, and every so often three times a day. It is delicious in an omelet.

Oh yes. Peppers, onions, tomatoes. Anything you like.

Buy some carrots, potatoes, peas, peppers, any vegetables you like. Boil them up and cut them into small pieces and put them into a big bowl. Pour sauce on them and mix the whole thing together. There you go, a big bowl of <insert whatever name here> salad.

The original salad also has sausage, but you are a vegetarian so you can omit it. It doesn’t change the taste much anyway.

Put a cup of frozen veggies in a skillet on medium heat with a spoonful of oil and cook them till they’re hot. Break an egg into the skillet and stir it around quickly to cook it. This is a poor cousin of an omelette. It’s veggies and scrambled eggs.

Put grated cheese or a slice of cheese on it when you put it on the plate.

I like sliced summer squash, sauteed in a bit of butter and garlic salt.

I make what my family calls “ugly dinner” which is that squash, along with some chopped tomatoes and whatever meat – usually chicken or sausage – with cheese on top. Always a big hit and takes all of like 15 minutes to make.
