best ever veggies(page 3)

Ok, so this is a veg dish that my husband LOVES. I make twice baked taters and I get creative!!! I add minced veggies (sometimes sautéd, sometimes raw), sauces/dressings, hummus/other bean dips, mock cheese, seeds/toasted nuts, seasonings, etc. Just bake your tater until soft. Cut open and remove the flesh, putting into a bowl. Add your combo of stuff and mix well. Pack back into it's skin and put back into the hot oven. Sometimes I put it up to broil and remove when a golden hue is acheived.

I have made Greek, Mexican, Asian, middle eastern creations. You would be amazed at what you have around the house/fridge to use for creative combos! You don't have to load it up with cheese, butter, bacon, etc, to make it good!!

Very creative, sounds like a plan. I'm trying to save money so I find myself being more creative as well, although my daughter probably wishes I weren't. Grin

Yum!!! I know, reading this makes my hungry for veg as well! I have been eating tons of celery root and fennel bulb. I like fennel bulb roasted in the oven, after having been coated w oilve oil and balsamic vinegar. It creates a lovely glaze Smile

That Italian Roasted Vegetables recipe sounds like a good one! Vegetables are always a challenge for me so I'll give that one a go!

My family doesn't eat veggies except hubby will eat a salad if it is plain enough. So, in the winter months, I will cook a bag of California veggies bag until they are pretty mushy, along with some celery. I then puree it in the blender, and add to somecooked cubed potatoes (which I do not puree), and make cheese soup out of it. My family loves this, and I don't tell them the veggies are in there. Hehehehe.

I love pumpkin! Just steam a piece and add some cinnamon and nutmeg. It doesn't even need sweetener. Yummy!
