Twists ๐ŸŒ€ to Add to Your Veggies ๐ŸŒฝ๐Ÿ†๐ŸŒถ to Make Them Taste Great ๐Ÿ˜‹ ...

Veggies can be boring. While there are some people who love them in all their natural goodness, for the rest of us it takes a little something more to entice us. Iโ€™m one of those who needs an extra kick of flavor to truly like my veggies. These are 7 twists you can use to make your veggies taste great.

1. Slice a Lemon over Broccoli

This may be my very favorite way to eat a vegetable. We started experimenting with this on the grill this summer, but it can also be baked in the oven. Simply slice a lemon and place it over a dish of broccoli. Add about a teaspoon of olive oil and some salt. The taste of this veggie twist will have you coming back for seconds and thirds!

2. Roast Cauliflower with Tony Chachereโ€™s Sprinkled on Top

Sometimes all veggies need is a bit of seasoning. Tony Chachereโ€™s Original Creole Seasoning will certainly deliver; itโ€™s a very savory, spicy mixture thatโ€™s sure to pep up your veggies or anything else you add it to. Clean and cut a head of cauliflower, sprinkle with Tony Chachereโ€™s and roast around 375 degrees until done. If youโ€™re drawn toward spicy foods then this oneโ€™s for you. Donโ€™t be surprised if there arenโ€™t any leftovers for tomorrow!

3. Add Almonds and Balsamic Vinaigrette to Your Green Beans

Green beans are a veggie most of us like but even they can get a little old. Try taking them out of the saucepan and into the oven with this tip. Add a handful of almonds and about half a cup of balsamic vinaigrette to liven them up. This can pair nicely with steak, chicken or even your favorite fish. Itโ€™s a tangy side dish that's sure to please.

4. Bake Your Sweet Potatoes and Top with Your Favs

This twist on veggies comes close to a dessert. Baked sweet potatoes are such a treat! Top them with butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, marshmallows or even nuts. Itโ€™s all about what you love as a topping. You can serve them with a meal or eat them on their own to enjoy them for the treat they are.

5. Make Roasted Carrots a Family Favorite

Carrots arenโ€™t something that everyone loves. But that may just be because they donโ€™t look appealing. Changing the presentation and the flavor can make this a favorite way to enjoy this vitamin packed veggie. Clean them and cut them in half, lengthwise. Rub them with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle with crushed sea salt. Roast until tender for a yummy veggie everyone enjoys.

6. Serve Potatoes Smashed Instead of Mashed

Do you ever get tired of plain old mashed potatoes? Me, too. This is a new spin on a classic veggie. Simply bake some small potatoes until theyโ€™re done then smash with a fork until theyโ€™re flat. Top with shredded cheddar, bacon bits and green onions and you have a veggie that closely reminds you of an appetizer.

7. Make This Yummy Veggie Trio

This is the perfect veggie dish to serve up with a steak or burgers. Slice up green peppers, onions and mushrooms. Add in some butter and Worcestershire sauce to punch up the taste. Simmer together until the veggies are tender. Itโ€™s a delectable dish youโ€™re sure to make again and again.

These are some ways to add a twist to veggies. How do you make veggies tastier? Iโ€™d love to hear your ideas!
