    The cheesey brocolli and potato bake in the mag looks good, going to make it tomorrrow night so will let you know.
    You could make an omelette with mush toms, sweetcorn and onions, you could add bacon or chicken. I usually mix it all together with some eggs and stick it in the oven, for about 20-30 mins

    You could make a vegetable curry out of those ingredients and have it with a big plate of basmatic rice. Do you like chickpeas or lentils? You could add either of those to the curry.
    I love carrots and broccoli stir fried with some chinese 5 spice and nam plah fish sauce (you only need a little) and have that with egg fried rice.

    I bought a little bag of small, trimmed sprouts at Tesco this weekend. I like sprouts anyway, but I have to say, these were amazing. Quite nutty and sweet tasting. The best I've ever eaten. Maybe you could have a go at trying these? They were only £1 for a bag. It lasted me for three meals.

    You could make a veg soup. Fling all your fave veg in a pan with veg stock cube. Bring to boil and simmer till veg soft. Stick it in the blender and blitz then eat, yummy.

    I agree with sonban, a big pot of veg soup with everything in it, blend and freeze into portions. Add some lentils for a green day if you want. This is how i make sure the kids get their veg intake. Even have a cup of it every day before dinner.

    I like roasted broccoli too, when it browns it adds a gorgeous flavour for using in couscous etc.
    Re the butternut squash, I don't like it cooked that way either but cubed and roasted it's yummy as it tastes sweeter when it browns. Sainsbury's sell a pack of diced sweet potato and butternut squash which are delish and may be worth a try to ease yourself in gently.
