Anyone have ideas on how to make vegetables taste better. Its not that they taste bad but that they have no taste. Besides the tried and true method of covering them in cheese anyone have any ideas ??

garlic salt, butter, sea salt, homemade dressings (olive oil/vinegar), and Italian seasonings. Time to get those creative juices flowing...paleo food is mother nature's gift to the community of life (us humans included).

when I make stir fry with vegetables (and chicken, but...) I cook the chicken in coconut oil, minced garlic, and soy sauce. Tastes grrrrrreat.

Spectrum makes a nice Shiitake-Sesame dressing that makes vegetables most excellent. Has a good mix of oils as well.

Garlic salt is always good to throw on when you are done steaming the vegetables. But if you throw some spices, such as salt, into the water that you are steaming the vegetables in it usually adds some flavor.

A few thoughts dependng on what you're having as an entree: steamed anything with sea salt and fresh lemon juice; lightly sauteed and "dressed" with black pepper olive oil; spice rub prior to roasting; boiled in really salty water, allowed to cool and sprinkled with cold cider vinegar....

I hear you saying that the veggies have no taste. You may want to evaluate where you are purchasing your produce and the quality of the purchase. I buy organic whenever possible. The flavor and colors of the organic produce is worth the extra cost not even counting the health benefits.

Try to go a whole day without eating and then go buy veggies after what your stomach tells you. You'll have a pretty good idea on how to prepare them, because your body will know since it's hungry. And then eat them without anything on the side. That'll make you rediscover its taste!
