Garlic is a great trick, and along the same lines is lemon. I love lemon (looooove lemon) and squeezing some lemon over the more bitter veggies (like broccoli) is great. Another thing is parmesan, although you need to use it sparingly. My new favorite way to do zucchini is slice it into medallions, sprinkle some parmesan on each medallion, then under the broiler until the cheese melts. The zucchini cooks but still has some crispness (slice it thick) and the saltiness of the parmesan is great.

I know you said you don't like them cooked really, but have you ever tried to just be "sneaky" and add them to a casserole or soup so that you don't really see them?!

Garlic makes everything better. I like to lightly coat a pan with olive oil using a grill brush then add lots of garlic. I use fresh cloves, but you can also buy prepared garlic in a jar. Once the garlic starts to sizzle, I add my veggies and stir-fry. This works great with veggies like squash, zucchini, mushrooms, and broccoli. I like to season with Weber Grill Creations Veggie Grill seasoning. Yum!

You could try blanching them. I usually do this with asparagus, broccoli and brussel sprouts, but you can definitely do it for other veggies. Put the veggies in boiling water for 1 to 3 minutes, drain and immediately transfer them to a bowl of ice water.

I agree if u like them raw (I do too) keep eating them raw. You can also take fresh veggies and maybe saute them quick (this way they are hot but still have a crunch)

Raw is so good for you and if you enjoy them, keep on enjoying them. Don't worry about cooking them.

After reading a thread on cauliflower, I decided it is time to throw a question out to the group. I'm not a cooked veggie fan. I truly wish I were. I eat raw veggies without hesitation but something changes for me when they are cooked. What are some tips or tricks you can share on how you work around those in your life like me?
