I've always loved veggies. The caveat is that they have to be cooked though.
My favorite dish as a kid was Chicken and Broccoli with emphasis on the broccoli. I could eat the entire dish of broccoli and as much as I love chicken (and uh, I LOVE chicken) something about the broccoli soaked in my mom's stir fry sauce was little Chungry Girl's dream come true. In my home, my mom always made some sort of vegetable dish with every meal.
Now that I'm grown, this need for vegetables cries out to me like Jodeci. So without further adieu, the list of vegetable dishes so good, you'll slap yo mama.

What's the damn deal: The flavor combination in this dish is just mind blowing. Crispy cauliflower in a miso-mayo sauce with scallions, pine nuts, and topped with bonito flakes. Total umami pleaser. If you don't know what bonito flakes are.... why, you're in for a creepy, crawly treat. The miso-mayo sauce is so good, you'll want to make it a makeshift additional spread to their bread service. For real, it's gold. don't let it go to waste or I'll save my mama and slap you! Jk. Not really, like Queen Bey says "I ain't sorry."
