You can mix up the veggies you use: sweet potato, brocooli, cauliflower or pumpkin also work well.
Add some herbs or spices, you can add diced onion, 1/2 teaspoon of paprika or cumin, some black pepper or 1/4 cup chopped parsley.
Serve with some tomato salsa. Try making your own quick tomato sauce by combining 1 can diced tomatoes (or 4 fresh tomatoes diced), 1 clove crushed garlic, one grated green apple, 1 teaspoon of sugar in a sauce pan and simmer for 5 minutes.
