    With the whole 1/3 SF situation I thought it would be a good idea to post interesting ideas on how you cook your superfree veggies. I figure that way it'll make the transition to more veggie consumption more enjoyable and tasty! I posted this on another thread and thought I'd share :D

    Baked cauliflower
    Cut cauliflower into florets and put in a baking dish, season with salt pepper & cumin powder. Spray with frylight and bake for 25 mins at 200C. This is a great side dish to curry and rice.

    Sauteed beans and mushrooms
    Finely chop some garlic and sautee in a pan sprayed with frylight. Add fine green beans (cut in half) and sliced mushrooms. Cook for about 10 minutes stirring often so it doesn't burn. Season with salt & pepper and a splash of worcestershire sauce. Goes great with a steak!

    Roasted mediterranean vegetables
    Chop into big chunks some red, green & yellow peppers, courgette, red onion, whole cherry tomatoes. Season with salt, pepper & fresh chopped rosemary. Roast at 200C for 30-35mins. Perfect with grilled fish and steamed baby potatoes.

    Roasted tomato salsa
    Throw some whole cherry tomatoes in a roasting tin and a couple of whole garlic cloves. Season with salt, pepper and 1/2 a tsp of sugar/splenda. Spray with frylight and roast at 200C for 20 minutes. When cooked, mash the garlic and tomatoes, the garlic will pop out of the skin, discard skin. Stir in some fresh chopped parsley and basil. Goes with everything, chicken, fish, especially a fritatta or omelette! Really nice as a fuss free pasta sauce too!

    Roasted superfree root vegetables
    Chop into big chunks some butternut squash, beetroot, carrots, peppers, swede, turnips etc. Season with salt, pepper and rosemary and roast at 200C for about an hour. This is my fave!

    Mixed vegetables
    Chop into small cubes some carrots, peppers, baby corn, broccoli, green beans, onions garlic etc. Sautee in a hot pan until softened. Season with salt, pepper and a pinch of chicken stock cube powder. Absolutely delicious with grilled salmon.

    Stir fried veggies
    Buy a bag of stir fry veggies, empty into wok, add soy and oyster sauce, eat
    Great with grilled fish and rice

    Vegetable gratin
    Slice some red pepper, aubergine, courgette and butternut squash and layer in a baking dish slightly overlapping. Add some chopped plum tomatoes over it. Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley and fresh thyme (just a little), add 1/4 cup of chicken stock, cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes at 200C. Take foil off and sprinkle with some parmesan cheese (HEA) and bake for another 10 minutes. Serve!

    Stir fried okra
    Slice some onions, garlic, ginger and chillies. Stie fry for a few minutes, add sliced red peppers and okras (topped, tailed and cut diagonally in half). Add salt & pepper, chicken stock powder and dried shrimps. Stir well and serve with steamed rice.

    If you buy the buttery frylight spray (I use the PAM one which is virtually the same - 0 calories)

    It is great sprayed over steam veggies, gives them a nice buttery taste.

    Adding something sweet into a salad makes it all the more interesting and tasty I think, something like some beetroot or even grapes or apple.

    I love roasted vegetables too. I usually put a variety of veggies in a dish - peppers, onion, parsnips, carrots, garlic and a sprinkling of mixed herbs. It is delicious.

    If I am doing things like, stews, casseroles, curries or a stir fry etc then I put heaps of vegetables in.

    I also loved mashed cabbage with a bit of black pepper, it is also niced sprayed with a little of the frylight buttery too.

    a homemade synfree coleslaw is another good way to get some veggies on your plate.

    The ideas are endless really.
