When it comes to vegetables, you the nutrition you’re getting from them, but few people enjoy the taste. There are some exceptions to the rule, but for the most people, people only shovel down vegetables so they don’t die.
Even though vegetables taste pretty gross by themselves, you can actually spruce them up a bit so they taste pretty delicious. It just involves using other ingredients to mask the putrid taste of the vegetable, and that’s just fine. Hey, you’re still getting the nutrition, right? That’s all that matters.
Here are 4 delicious recipes to make vegetables taste better:
#1 – Eggplant Parmesan
Eggplant is a super nutritious vegetable. It contains so much nutrition that it’s almost labeled as a super food. You get a lot of vitamins from it, plenty if nutrients, and you got a whopping dose of dietary fiber to keep your colon fresh and clean.
While these are all nice, eggplants taste pretty disgusting by themselves.
But a healthy and easy eggplant parmesan is a delicious and simply dish to make. All if requires is breadcrumbs, sauce, eggplant, and cheese.
You spread the eggplant around on the breadcrumbs (maybe after being dipped in egg), throw some sauce on top, sprinkle some cheese, and you’re done.
Heat for 30 minutes or so, and you have a great tasting and healthy meal!
#2 – Spaghetti Squash
This vegetable tastes pretty awful alone. It’s got a stringy consistency, and it’s not that appetizing. But it actually mimics the look and feel of real pasta of the same name, and all you could do is add some sauce if you want, and it’ll go right down.
You could even throw it in garlic, olive oil, and some brown sugar to make a great tasting meal.
The hardest part of this recipe is the squash itself. It has a hard shell to crack, and then you need to string it out.
#3 – Cucumber Salad
Cucumbers are super healthy, unless you peel them. Keep the skin on! But alone, they taste kind of bland and lame.
When you put together a cucumber salad, you want a whole cucumber sliced thinly, and you could even throw in a tomato or two into the mix for even more healthy nutrition.
Next, all you need to do is add salt, pepper, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar for taste. When you mix this all together, it’ll taste wonderful.
Slicing the cucumber thinly allows the ingredients you added to be absorbed by the cucumber’s membrane. Yummy!
