Snacks, not meals: I am not a fan of boiling vegetables. Been baking my broccoli with whatever meal I place in the oven. Cauliflower with tumeric is another nice baked bit for noshing.
My recent discovery is microwaved corn. Leave the husk on the corn and stick it in the microwave for 3 minutes - add a minute for every extra ear of corn. The husk traps the moisture and steams the corn. After the 3 minutes (or more) are up, shuck the corn and enjoy (or prepare with any other meal).
