can't think of a veggie I don't like...

string beans (green or yellow) cooked with bacon and white wine

asparagus roasted with olive oil and herbs de Provence

mushrooms (a good mix of types) hot sauteed in clarified butter with shallots and a dash of Madeira

Favorite veggie? It's the one I'm eating now, whichever that is. I love them all except for rutabaga. I do try to choose and prepare veggies in their season, so there are many I love that I am not eating now. Like asparagus. That season doesn't come around until late spring.

I'm not willing to put a "Favorite" tag on any vegi. I like too many to do that.

Yup, far too many great tasting vegis to choose only three. But I think my favourite group of vegis is the brassicas.

Mushrooms are a freebie since they are a funghi! I like them cooked just like Robo410 said.

Cauliflower, but it must be roasted!
Tomatoes - I love them raw best, but also love them barely cooked in all kinds of pasta dishes.
Roasted potatoes, tossed with extra virgin olive oil and a variety of spices.

My BIL got me roasting cauliflower. I prefer it that way now. I have done florets and slices I think the florets are a little better. I like garlic,turmeric,cumin and S&P on mine then drizzled with EVOO before roasting.

Everything but...brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes.

Love almost daily...mushrooms, onions and tomato product of some sort.

Fresh or frozen baby peas, good quality corn, cauliflower or broccoli.
