We all know how important it is to eat our vegetables. But how often do we make a delicious main dish, only to think: What can I serve with this? I often see references to "Serve with a lightly steamed vegetable..." but sometimes I'm out of ideas for a tasty vegetable to go with my meal. So use this group to share some of your tastiest vegetable recipes. New, old, tried and true - whatever! I look forward to seeing your good veggie suggestions. Please limit posts to recipes containing vegetables and fruits.

We've made this soup for years and loved it. Can be done on the stove top, but we did it in the microwave so the kids could easily share in its creation.

And the recent cold weather gives a perfect excuse for serving soup as a main course.
What are some of your favorite soups, and what vegetables do they contain?
I love cream of broccoli soup, and it can be made out of almost any broccoli - fresh, frozen, even leftovers.

I used to think of baby carrots as being wasteful because you can just buy whole carrots and peel/cut them yourself -- but I've since learned that baby carrots have greatly reduced the wastage of carrot processing. They are made from misshapen, short, and broken carrots that cannot be sold as whole carrots.
Baby carrots are a delicious side vegetable and are well-suited to lots of flavorings. My favorite way to cook them is in a steamer basket. When they are cooked, I can remove the basket, drain them, and dress them in the bottom of the pot they steamed in. A yummy, nutritious, and cheap vegetable side dish.
Among my favorite ingredient combos to dress steamed carrots:
--honey, butter & dill
--butter, cumin, and cinnamon
--butter, parsley, and freshly ground black pepper
--freshly grated ginger, sugar, and rice wine vinegar
--balsamic vinegar and brown sugar
--vermouth and crushed juniper berries
--minced garlic and olive oil
