Hard to pick a few, as I'm a big vegetable fan. I usually prefer them prepared as simply as possible (even raw), with a little citrus - fresh lemon juice (steamed, grilled or roasted).

Top faves - eggplant, artichokes, asparagus, brussels sprouts, squash (zukes, spaghetti, butternut, etc.).

Avocado & tomatoes - together or separately - in a salad, or atop bruschetta. Avocado bruschetta drizzled w/ chimichurri.

Avocado stuffed w/ crab salad.

Green beans, long beans, snow peas - in a stir fry.

Peas & potato salad w/ red onion.

I could go on & on.

It is August--my favorite veggie right now is corn fresh from the field. I like mine cooked in water to which about 2-3 T of milk and 1 tsp of sugar is added. Butter, S&P, garlic powder OR garlic butter OR pesto.

The corn is soooo tender and sweet right off the stalk. Corn is followed by kohlrabi, thinly sliced, S&P. If the tomatoes were ready, corn and tomatoes would be running neck to neck. The things I am not that crazy about (and that grow in the garden) are pumpkins and parsnips. I probably should experiment with savory recipes for pumpkin this fall--looks like the pumpkin plants are doing well. I don't like pumpkin pie. But then, I don't eat a lot of sweets (peaches should be ready soon--oooohhhh--Flora's Peach Cream Pie!!!)

I love many Veggies, prepared simply, butter, salt and pepper but several I love to give the royal treatment. Cardo or cardoon, battered and fried so good rather hard to find tho. Artichokes, steamed then put on the bbq and grilled after marinating in garlic,white balsamic, salt and pepper over night. Asparagus sprinkled with parm after roasting in the oven. brussels sprouts shredded and then cooked in butter, salt and pepper, Italian sweet frying peppers, eggplant, and tomatoes my favorites.

Green Bell, Red Bell, Lettuces of All Types

Though tomato is my fave, as well as eggplant and zucchini; I love salads ... And tomato is actually a fruit, we employ it as a veggie ...

There is no way I could ever narrow veggies down to my three most favourite. I love veggies. I like them raw, cooked (just tender crisp for most), alone or in a dish made with other ingredients (i.e. spinach stuffed pork tenderloin). I love summer because I have salad at least once a day. I love fall because of corn, brussell sprouts, etc. Zucchini, stuffed or sauted is awesome. Carrots are a mainstay here, as are peas (fresh when we can, frozen the rest of the time), broccoli and cauliflower.

Great thread!

I love corn on the cob, but all I can get around here is bi-colour corn which is far too sweet for my taste.

I love Silver Queen. Use to grow it all the time. The sweeter the better for me. Candy is no-way for me but corn!!! yum. My s-i-l put in a few for me this year and it's been wonderful. Maybe next year I'll try my hand at planting a larger patch.

My brother (in Michigan, darn it) grows wonderful corn in his garden. I sure wish he and I lived closer. I would love some of that corn about now. ;)
