Simple vegetable preparations

Caitlin Wheeler | Mar 1, 2002 02:05 PM

Too much chowhounding has had its impact on my waistline, alas, and I am going to remedy it by eating vegetables. I am not a proponent of the raw food movement (especially in the middle of winter) and am looking for simple vegetable recipes that are truly delicious. My criteria are 1) not too much preparation time -- they can cook for ages, but I don't want to be doing it 2) Low fat. Anything can taste good with enough butter/cream on it. 3) Not too many ingredients -- I lack shopping time and refrigerator space, so a gratin of every root vegetable ever imagined is less helpful.
One of my favorites is roast cauliflower -- toss half a head of cauliflower sliced thinly with 1 tsp olive oil and 2 cloves minced garlic. Roast at 400 for 45 minutes. This is delightful, transformative, converts even the most inveterate cauliflower hater.
Any suggestions?
