Vegetables That Won’t Taste Like Vegetables

Vegetables That Won’t Taste Like Vegetables is a collection of recipes that are delicious and totally craveable! These vegetables won’t be left behind!

So if you guys have been reading along for the last few years you might know by now that I’m not a huge vegetable guy. I’ll eat them, I even like a lot of them. It’s just not something I grab at the start of a meal, unless I get the eyes from the wife…then I grab.

I guess I just didn’t grow up eating a big variety of vegetables, mostly the peas and carrots combo appeared at the table but I don’t really remember much else.

Corn. Yes, we had corn, too.

But as I’ve gotten older and started to make all this food with Christie on the site here I’ve come to find out that there really are a lot of vegetable recipes that I actually now look forward too – and here’s my list!

Buddha’s Baked Beans

Buddah's Baked Beans are everyone's favorite BBQ side dish!

These beans are legendary. Everyone asks for the recipe – every single time. It’s the side dish that eats like a meal!


Thai Peanut Brussels Sprout Slaw

Thai Peanut Brussels Sprouts Slaw in basket

This slaw has the perfect amount of crunch from the shaved sprouts, chopped peanuts and scallions. All tossed with a creamy peanut dressing. You’ll never know it’s actually good for you!


Stuffed Artichokes with Garlic Fontinella

There's tons of flavor - and tons of cheese in these Stuffed Artichokes with Garlic and Fontinella!

This super easy stuffed artichoke recipe has been coming to my families dinner table for years. We put our own little twist on it but it’s as simple and delicious as it gets.


Bacon Wrapped Maple Glazed Carrots

These Bacon Wrapped Maple Glazed Carrots are my favorite side dish to serve for Easter dinner!

I mean, do I really need to say any more? Make them.


Whiskey Glazed Baby Carrots and Brussels

Whiskey Glazed Baby Carrots and Brussels will be the side dish star at your holiday table!

It’s a mouthful to say and a mouthful to eat! The glaze on the vegetables will turn any non-veggie liker into a veggie lover!


Sausage Spaghetti Squash with Apple Cider Glaze

Sausage SPaghetti Squash with Apple Cider Glaze is loaded with sausage and cheese!

Inspired by a trip Christie took to Napa, this spaghetti squash can be a side dish or the main course!


Roasted Beets and Sweets with Brown Butter Maple Glaze

Roasted Beets and Sweets with Brown Butter Maple Glaze is sure to become your favorite side dish!

This side dish only takes minutes to put together, a half an hour or so to roast but then just toss in the glaze and serve. Haven’t met a kid yet who doesn’t like them!


Asian Zucchini Noodles

Asian Zucchini Noodles are a healthy and delicious side dish!

These “noodles” can be eaten as it or used as a base in many different recipes. Add ground beef or pork and turn it into a stir fry or add other vegetables to keep it a vegetarian meal.


Roasted Broccoli with Buttery Bread Crumbs

Roasted Broccoli with Buttery Bread Crumbs is by FAR the best broccoli I've ever had!

Don’t even try to serve me broccoli any other way. This recipe is by FAR the best broccoli I’ve ever eaten!


Buttered Carrots with Streusel Topping

Buttered Carrots with Streusel Topping are a new edition to our holiday menu!

I’m proud to say that this recipe is one of our new holiday traditions. The kids ask for it every year now and we are glad to make it for them!


Roasted Asian Green Beans

These Roasted Asian Green Beans are an easy and super healthy side!

These green beans have such an addicting crunch to them, you really can’t stop eating them. And when I say that you can’ stop eating a green bean…you’d better grab the recipe.


Spicy Mushroom Rice

Spicy Mushroom Rice is an easy, amazing side dish to any meal!

Go ahead and double up on this rice recipe – it’ll be eaten up WAY before the main course. Promise.


Grilled Italian Street Corn –

Grilled Italian Street Corn covered with red pepper mayo and cheese!

Who says corn is just for summer time? Yes, that’s when we make this a lot but this recipe is a great way to use frozen corn on the cob…probably the only way if you ask me. Just roast the cobs in the oven instead of grilling and slather with the creamy red pepper sauce!


Fried Whiskey Glazed Brussels Sprouts

Fried Whiskey Glazed Brussels Sprouts are crispy, and coated with my famous whiskey glaze!

Take some sprouts, fry them and cover them in our famous whiskey glaze? You can’t go wrong with that. Add some sliced apples for a tart crunch and you’ve got a home run!

I actually have a whole board over on Pinterest dedicated to this! So if you’re looking to get more vegetable recipes in your menu planning or just need some crazy good side dishes for dinner or a holiday, head over and check it out!
