A thread for all things vegetable!

What's your favourite vegetable?
What are your favourite veg recipes?
Any vegetarian rolls in the house? Share the things that make veg life comfy!


Veggies are cool. It will sound banal, but I love potatoes most. Filling, neutral, cheap and with at least one hundred billion trillions of recipes. Out of this many my favourite is baked potatoes, though there is a little secret - boiling them before baking and turning oven fan in last 10 minutes. Turns out very soft, juicy and with delicious roasted look.
Beside that, I like onion+carrot fried on drop of oil and stewed. Along with spices and a dash of dill it makes a great additive to other veg dishes (mix with mashed potatoes!) or any poultry (stewed chicken) or meat. I also recommend salting it good to balance out sweet carrot flavour. It is easy on stomach too!
I tried to abstain from meat in December. I see the appeal on positive effects on health and I hope to try a short period again soon. Sadly I cannot abstain from meat entirely or for long because of family cooking.
Speaking of comfy, I think soups are where comfy at - nothing like a bowl of hot soup spreading it's spicy aroma all across your place as you return from a walk in cold weather; it warms both body and spirit. Cooking is trivial. Just pick vegs you love, cut, boil and add spices* and that's it. Can consume with noodles, rice, toasts or as is. What do you think, sushi rolls?

* - laurus, dill, garlic, parsley and pepper are obligatory


When I make chicken noodles at home, I like to use sweet red and green peppers, cooking onions and mushrooms (soft cap simple ones). What else could I try?
I used to like to add beansprouts but the problem is that they go off so soon I can't really have them at home? Is there a way to make them last longer?


I have to agree, a good soup is maximum comfy, and I like the sound of onion and carrot.
I sometimes fry up some onion and sliced mushrooms with a bit of parsley as a quick addon to other dishes, I think it goes particularly well with creamy pasta dishes.
I've never tried boiling a potato before baking, do you boil them with the skin on?

I usually throw some chopped cabbage in with my noodles, but that's mostly because it's cheap, I don't think it adds much flavour.
As for the sprouts, have you tried freezing them? I didn't know you could until recently, the trick is to boil them for a couple of minutes then freeze them straight away, otherwise they come out soggy and brown.

I absolutely love veggie fajitas (OP's picture?) too. I used to make them with chicken, but over time I started using less chicken and more veg until eventually I just left the chicken out entirely.
Peppers, Onion, Mushrooms, garlic and a bit of spice all fried together so the flavours mix. Cooks in 20 minutes, dump it in a wrap with your favourite toppings and you're done.


Sometimes I eat raw cabbage as a snack. Its actually pretty nice.


Onions and mushrooms is great addon. Adding a bit of cream makes it a great sauce for rice and pasta.

> I've never tried boiling a potato before baking, do you boil them with the skin on?

Sometimes yes - it depends on potatoes. If they are "young" (fresh local harvest) I boil, bake and eat with skin, for other cases I prefer to peel them.
Before baking you can crash them slightly or cut in quarters, whichever you prefer.

I think I'll try fajitas soon. What spices do you recommend?


I usually use about a level teaspoon of chilli powder, 3/4 of cumin and half of paprika and salt. Swapping the paprika and chilli for cayenne pepper comes out pretty similar too.
I usually cook the peppers and onions for for about 3 minutes before putting the rest in, but make sure you mix everything up well when you put the spices in, I find they stick to the pan really easily at first.

I've never really tried raw cabbage might give it a go, although I have seen loads of recipes for spiced or picked cabbage that I'd like to try


I'm not sure if it was me, who wrote this, but just in case I meant salad. Raw cabbage sounds not like the highlight of a day.

My favorite vegetable is probably garlic. Maybe that is why nobody wants to spend time with me.


I make rice and put soy sauce on it when im hungry (´・ω・`)

when you say baked potatoes do you mean things that look like this

or like this?


This second pic looks almost exactly how it turns out. I also turn on the fan in the oven during the last 10-15 minutes to get that delicious golden crust.


for future reference those are usually known as roast potatoes
I agree though, parboiling them helps keep the insides soft and the outsides crispy

Spinach is such a nice leaf
