Hi Dinner Tribe, I have an issue and need help. I don’t know how to cook vegetables other than steaming or baking on a cookie sheet. I am sick of spinach, green beans and broccoli. How else can I cook these vegetables to make them taste less like vegetables? I am good with tomatoes. Eggplant, all the green vegetables and root vegetables. My dad doesn’t really like asparagus or cauliflower. I am good without both of them, too. Anyone got any ideas?
They are suppose to taste like veggies or what's the point of cooking them.
I oven roast veggies all the time and vary the herb mixtures I use depending upon the main course.
For broccoli I lightly steam then toss with a little butter, and parmesan cheese or butter and lemon juice
For green beans, steam lightly, drizzle a bit of olive oil, lemon juice and lemon rind. Maybe toasted almond slivers or even pecans.

1. Paul Prudhomme had a restaurant (K-Paul's) in NOLA, but was originally from Opelousas, LA. It might be the same recipe.
2. Corn flour is not the same as masa. Masa is made from corn treated with alkali, while corn flour is just plain ground corn. The difference between corn flour and cornmeal is that the flour is ground much finer. Then when you get into cornmeals, there is a difference between the mass produced meals and the stone ground meals. Stone ground (my preference) is coarser and yields a heartier cornbread.
Thank you! I’ll try to remember to ask sister about her cornbread and report back.
**GypsyGirl**: finally heard back from the technophobe. Yes, same recipe! I am saving while I think of it. Thank you both.
