    What is your staple fresh vegetable?

    Hello all,

    To those of you who include plenty of fresh vegetables in your regular diet, what is your go-to produce item and what do you prefer about it?

    A variety would be ideal, I realize, but bearing the space and preparation factors of fresh produce in mind, what "bulk" or base vegetable do you most often cook with and find the most advantageous?

    I like cabbage for this purpose because it has a nice savory taste and stores compactly with a good shelf life.

    About to take a trip to the store and would welcome suggestions.

    I think the most common veggie for me is zucchini right now... I also buy Kale a lot.

    I grow a good sized garden in the summer and have been enjoying things as they come in season. Lately its been zucchini, cucumbers, broccolini, cherry tomatoes, jalapenos. About a week or so out from having some good sweet corn.

    When I'm shopping, I always gotta have spinach and asparagus on hand.

    The one thing I’m always stocked up on is kale. I also eat a wide variety of all greens (every type of lettuce & a lot of arugula), carrots, broccoli, asparagus, seaweed, edamame, green cabbage, snap peas, avocado & radishes. I eat all these vegetables basically every week. I love vegetables & variety is the spice of life. I also happen to cover most of my vegetables in a wide variety of spices...

    How dare you correct me =o)

    Oh man... zucchini bread is so f*cking amazing. I swear I have a weird thing with loving baked goods that factor in veggies or fruit:

    carrot cake
    zucchini bread
    banana bread
    pumpkin pie

    Sorry King Adam, I should not have stepped out of line

    And I'm the exact same way. You essentially just listed all my favorite desserts. I think it must have something to do with how all those things are a blend of sweet and savory, and I don't like things that are overly sweet. That, and cinnamon is involved in all of them, & I just fuking love cinnamon.

    Agreed, and there's probably also a texture element too, especially with the carrot cake. But something (like you said) about combining sweet with something savory/earthy strikes a perfect balance.

    AND, unlike other options which are purely refined flour and sugar, oil, etc, it seems like the inclusion of product mitigates some of the digestion issues I have with other snacks/desserts.

    I honestly don't care about the calorie content of one dessert vs another, its moreso how it'll make me feel after. If I have a slice of homemade zucchini bread, even if it's 600 calories I won't feel anything like I will after eating 600 calories of donuts.

    zucchini casserole is amazing too. I make it with the zucchini in our garden and brand muffins with carrots, raisins and zucchini, sometimes even coconut thrown in there instead of rasins

    That’s sounds awesome. I love adding raisins to dishes like that... the sweet kick really adds something special

    swap the apples for shredded zucchini pressed of moisture and I don’t add nuts or orange and swapped coconut oil for regular. Some people use dried pineapple too

    Every week I stock up on spinach, broccoli, cucumbers,celery, carrots, mushrooms and Brussel sprouts.

    Try different ways of cooking them too...add them to your egg whites, steam them, raw, etc...

    I like cabbage for this purpose because it has a nice savory taste and stores compactly with a good shelf life.

    About to take a trip to the store and would welcome suggestions.

    Mine's admittedly a combination, but I eat it more than anything. Aldi dollar bags of steamed California medley (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower).

    I love carrots because they're cheap and versatile. You an roast them, boil/stew them, eat them raw.

    I freeze bags of spinach, kale, chard, and collard greens.

    Every morning I use my nutribullet to grind up
    -All 4 of the greens above
    -Carrots
    -Chopped beets
    -1 apple
    -4 or 5 strawberries
    -Handful of blueberries
    -teaspoon or so of Turmeric
    -teaspoon of Lion's Mane
    -squeeze of ginger
    -water

    Been doing this ever since the quarantine came about. Sometimes drink it twice/day.
    I prefer it because it's a fast and easy way to get in all of that nutrition first thing in the morning.

    Cabbage is mine too. Cheap, long shelf life like you said, and versatile. Usually I shred it up and thrown it in the pan after I take out my chicken or beef, sometimes with some onions, and cover it up for a few minutes. Easy and delicious.

    Honorable mentions are baby bok choy, green leaf lettuce, and baby kale. Sometimes cauliflower, and I like to always some some broccoli in the freezer.

    If it gets you to eat more veggies, totally justified!

    Lots of feedback, thanks all!

    Does anyone prefer cooking them down into the main portion or simply preparing them as a side dish?

    Cabbage does tend to go well with whatever the protein item is cooked in. I do enjoy the flavor of just about every vegetable mentioned here, but am honestly bad about eating them because you've got to be a little more deliberate with preparing them, which it would behoove me to do.

    What are some recipe ideas? Do you all typically prepare them as a side item/snack, or incorporate them into your main dish?

    As a side note, am I the only one here who loves eggplant? No one mentioned that one but it's probably my second favorite. If I hadn't forgotten, I would have mentioned it in my original post. Awesome base for casseroles or stir fry.
