Butter, garlic, salt and pepper, if you want to enhance the flavor.

Any of the variety of oriental/barbecue sauces if you want to hide the flavor.

Mix them up in some X-Virgin olive oil and spices (get the powdered version if you like...easier and absorbs into the veggies) galore....note: Tumeric will help as an anti-inflammatory, Onions are good for cleaning the blood, Garlic is a great natural anti-biotic and Ginger also helps with inflammation...make those the staples for good health. Watch any sauces for sugars and sodium, spices will do the trick...or make your own sauce and keep it handy...jar full of Olive Oil and spices...shake and pour.

I'll offer Alabama white bbq sauce:

2 cp mayo
2 tbsp white vinegar
1 tbsp salt
2 tbsp course ground black pepper
rooster sauce to taste

a bit of this makes anything taste better. If you zone, just count the fat blocks as mayo (2 tbsp/block I think).

Salsa and pico de gallo. Different types & flavors, home made or store bought. I use them instead of salad dressing most of the time. The rest of the time, I use vinagrettes made with olive oil. Theres a huge variety available, some are good sources of omega 3's, and really help the taste of vegetables, omelettes, even scrambled eggs

Also, sauteeing at low heat in olive or canola oil instead of frying helps preserve the flavor and the nutrients, and always include red, green, orange, and yellow peppers in some combination for flavor and a nutritional whallop.

I always cook mine with the meat I am eating the animal fat really adds flavor.

I know this might not conform to many diets on here, but to get me through a day at work I have broccoli with peanut butter. It sounds bad, but everyone in my department has started eating it. It removes the bitterness, but still has that satisfying crunch.

ryan, wow i've never thought of peanut butter and broccoli! You are eating it raw I assume?

Great tips everyone! Mike I am going to pick up some tumric and ginger ASAP! Currently I've been eating my veggies steamed and plain. I guess i just got used to it. I used to use garlic salt a lot though, maybe I'll try it again too, thanks for the reminder!

What a great thread! A few questions from a vegetable noob (I've never even eaten a salad!).

1. When you are using a dressing such as the mentioned "Shiitake-Sesame" do you just slather that on after you steam them? Are these dressings served cold?

2. Any work specific suggestions where you only have access to a microwave and maybe a mini fridge? Can I just reheate steamed veggies in the microwave?

I wouldn't say slather, a little goes a long way. The veggies are steamed, but usually the dressing is cold. They do make steam in the bag vegetables (Birdseye brand), which may work well for you.
