The Best Vegetables for Lazy Cooks Who Want to Eat Healthy

Getting more veggies into your diet is a good idea for everyone. The key is figuring out which ones fit into your lifestyle, and into your method of cooking. Over at Summer Tomato, author and neuroscientist Darya Rose offers up some ideal vegetables for the laziest of home cooks.

Granted, most veggies don't have to be a hassle at all, but Darya notes that there are some that are just easier to prepare than others, have more preparation options, and can be found fresh at virtually any time of the year. In no particular order, she notes:

  • Tuscan Kale
  • Cabbage
  • Delicata squash
  • Baby spinach
  • Bell peppers

This isn't an exhaustive list of easy-prep veggies by any stretch of the imagination, so don't think they're the only ones, just some of Darya's favorites, and frankly, she's right about how easy they are to make. If you're riding the kale train, Tuscan kale takes much less time to clean than the curly stuff, and has flatter leaves, which make them easier to cut and cook. Cabbage is sweet, crunchy, and as long as you don't mishandle it, it can add brightness and sweetness to a dish, as opposed to the stinky, sulfury smell you get when you boil it down (so don't do that.) She even offers up a morning cabbage and egg scramble that will get your day off to a healthy start.

Bell peppers are another universal favorite, both for snacking, salads, stuffing, and more, and they're super-easy to prepare in just about every way you plan to use them. Hit the link below to read more about each of the entries, and how you can incorporate them into your healthy eating plans.
