Man, vegetables can be bland, can’t they? Let’s stop kidding ourselves. Who REALLY likes steamed broccoli?
So we add stuff to our veggies to make them more palatable. Olive oil? Good. Salt? Depends how much. Bacon? Eh. Cheese sauce? Might as well have mac n’ cheese.
But I’ve found a secret ingredient to make all veggies taste better without adding the usual suspects. (ok olive oil and salt are a must) This secret ingredient: Add more veggies!
Green beans sauteed with onions and bell peppers? Marvelous!
Broccoli tossed with crushed tomatoes? Delightful!
Brussel sprouts roasted with capers and shallots? Yes please!
I love bacon in my beans, whiz on my broccoli, and salty cajun spices on on my brussel sprouts. But making veggies exponentially greater by adding more veggies makes me feel smart and healthy. Just the right things to feed my ever expanding ego.
