I bought fresh veges for the first time in ages, and now I am not sure what I want to make.

I bought:

Brocolli
Zuccini
Spinich
Mushrooms
Green capsicum
Tomatos

My flatmate and I made lasanga the other night, and that was delicious.

Help help help!

I don't know what else you have on hand but the broccoli made me think of this...

I made it a few days ago for lunch (with cooked fettuccine instead of rice noodles) and it was pretty awesome.

For zucchini, you can make it into salad. 

Peel zucchini. Slice thinly crosswise.  Add carrots if you like, cut the same size and shape as the zucchini.  Put vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.  Let it cool in the refrigerator before serving. 

The easiest thing to do with brocolli is to steam or blanch it in boiling water for a few minutes.  Drain.  Season with salt and pepper.  Top it with some grated cheese.  Eat.  Cheesy

You can saute the mushrooms with brocolli.  Put some oyster sauce and you're done!

Tomatoes can be eaten raw or put in sandwiches or taco salad.

Brocolli

Mushrooms
Green capsicum
Tomatos

You could make a good ratatouille-esque dish with this-saut the broccoli, zucchini, mushrooms, peppers and toss in some olive oil, garlic, onion and maybe some fake cheese or nutritional yeast.  Voila!

Those veggies together would make an awesome, hearty spaghetti sauce or stew! I would save the tomatoes to eat them fresh though and used canned for the sauce.

Coarsely chop up veggies. If using onions and garlic, begin by lightly browning them in a touch of oil. Add the rest of the veggies, some canned tomatoes, tomato paste (for the sauce), and season to taste. Simmer until veggies are tender! Or, even better, toss everything in a Crockpot (no need to saut the onions first) and turn it on. For protein, you can add lentils or other beans (if using dry, soak overnight before cooking), tofu, tvp, quinoa, etc. I love adding sliced up Italian veggie sausages.

You could make an awesome broccoli casserole by making a cheesy white (bechamel-style) sauce which you'll season to taste (try adding some nutmeg, yum). You'll pour the sauce over the cooked (steaming is my fav) broccoli florets and top with grated cheese that has been mixed with some bread crumbs and seasoning. Pop this baby in the oven (at 350F) for about 30 minutes depending on how hot your dish was before putting it in the oven. You'll know it's ready when you see the cheese bubble and turn golden. This dish can also be made using cauliflower instead of the broccoli or a mix of both).
 

Here are a couple of other recipes:


Alright, so I just wrote all this THEN realized that this was posted a while ago and you've probably eaten all the veggies already... but since I put a lot of effort into this post, I'll send it anyways, maybe it can help you (or someone else) in future culinary endeavors!

Hi Burgz, do not worry.  Your effort is not in vain.  There are 282 who viewed this post.  I would love to try your broccoli casserole.  How do you make the white sauce?

Your vegetable stew also sounds good. Thanks for sharing.

The white sauce I usually make in the microwave, though it can be made on the stove-top too. You mix 1 tbs margarine (or butter) white the same amount of flour and you heat until they are hot and melted. Then you add 2 cups of cold milk, season, and cook until thickened, stirring every couple minutes. The fun part is that you can put pretty much whatever you want in it - I usually add onions, herbs, and some grated cheese.

Hope that helps!
