what is your fave non-starchy veggie?

no more than 3, please, and tell us how you like them prepared. oh, and this question is NOT health based, but TASTE based. my fave was, and still is BROCCOLI, a vegetable that many love to hate. i like it just about every way, except pureed...but roasted, grilled and sauted in garlic is how i prefer it.

My current fave is cabbage. I hated it as a kid but now I find it versatile, sweet and delicious in stir fries and as coleslaw. I also love arugula. It adds a whole new level to salads.

I go through a lot of Asian cabbage slaw, sometimes mixed with broccoli slaw - I make it with sesame oil, rice vinegar, a bit of stevia (one individual package), red pepper flakes and a splash of soy sauce.

I also love broccoli, cooked gently, then served with lots of salted butter (don't need to add salt). Now I use Kerry Gold butter which ups the flavor even more.

This is pretty much the only vegetable I want to eat.

Bok Choy has to be number one I brush it with Olive Oil and put in my grill basket and it gets tender and has a great smokey flavor. Number 2 is Mustard Greens Sauted in Olive Oil or Bacon with a Spring Onion, for Salads I like Arugula mixed in with other greens.

I figure it must be my favorite since I add it to all the other veggies I eat.

Oh I love so many! Fave though, is cabbage sautéed in bacon drippings until cabbage starts to turn a delectable and scrumptious brown (carmelized?). When I was a child, my mother referred to it as "fried cabbage".

all great choices.

before low carbing, I ate veggies (except for broccoli and celery), because I had to. now I really love them. but if someone put a disruptor to my head, and said CHOOSE ONE, it's the broc. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

Appears broccoli has it, but, I will put in another vote for asparagus, then green beans. However, I will count a salad as one big vegetable.

Green beans - roasted, steamed in microwave and wrapped in thin sliced ham, cooked in ham juice when I cook a big ham.

Also love cucumbers sliced, steamed carrots, cherry tomatoes halved, and above mentioned steamed green beans that are cold, all on a plate with a dipper bowl of ranch dressing.

Here is some out of left field.
Water chestnuts the way most chinese restaurants use it. It reminds me of the 1 veggie I have not eaten in 25 years and was my favorite back then - Plantain tree inner stem.
Close second is eggplant slathered with ghee on rice - and since I am not eating rice - I guess I slather with ghee and scoop it up with pork rinds - yet to try that though.
Third is Tindora - Ivy gourd - same treatment.
I also like Broccoli, sauerkraut, onions etc.
Thanks.
Srinath.

Broccoli, love it steamed, boiled, baked, broiled, whatever. I even like it raw.

Cabbage. It is just so versatile and can be used in so many dishes. I make a concoction similar to crack slaw (been making it since before crack slaw was thought of) that's ground beef, cabbage, onions, S&P, garlic, mushrooms,and Worcestershire sauce. Good eatin' right there.

Brussel sprouts. Been on a kick for these lately. My wife buys steamable packs of them that are pre-seasoned with butter and black pepper and they are goooood.

Mine too on all 3 counts! I also like to saute sliced zucchini with onion in butter and fresh garlic.
