There are so many amazing ways to cook vegetables -- we're glad to help you find the right recipe on Yummly. From steamed fresh corn to roasted tomatoes, there are more than a million vegetable recipes to browse right here…

Roasted Vegetables

Any time of year is a good time of year to roast vegetables, you just have to figure out which ones you want to try. If you have an overabundance of zucchini, sprinkled with parmesan cheese, roasted, and sprinkled with fresh parsley makes a delightful side dish to grilled chicken. In the middle of January, you might find yourself with plenty of Brussels sprouts -- they roast well with a drizzle of olive oil and a bit of salt.

Soup

Soup is one of the best ways to dish out vegetables. You can do a simple slow cooker chicken and vegetable soup as a restorative or if you want something with a lot more heft butternut squash soup never fails to impress. If you're going to make a more involved soup, there are dozens of recipes for roasted corn chowder. If you like a hardy soup without the dairy, lentil vegetable is an easy soup to execute for a make-ahead meal. If you're looking for substantial Italian soup, ribollita is the Tuscan vegetable soup you should check out -- but there are many more to explore.

Root Vegetables

There so many flavorful root vegetables beyond the potato (we're not knocking potatoes -- they're among our favorite subterranean veggies) and we're more than willing to share the best ways to make them. They're great for winter meal planning because they work well as vegetable side dishes with sheet pan recipes, but you can apply other cooking methods than roasting. Root vegetable gratin, carrot soup, sweet potato chips, and rutabaga mashes are just some of the easy recipes to browse using root vegetables.

Chicken

For omnivores, chicken with vegetables is the quintessential healthy meal, but there are many variations to that meal that you can make at home. If your garden is overflowing with summer veggies, break out the grill for a healthy cookout. If you're cutting back on carbs, try chicken and zucchini noodles. If you want to try a filling Mediterranean meal, sheet pan chicken and vegetables might be what you're looking for. You can even turn that into a kebab salad meal if you like your chicken on a stick. If you want something easy that the whole family will love, you can even try slow cooker chicken fajitas with peppers and onions. Whatever kind of chicken and vegetable recipe you're in the mood for, you can find it on Yummly.

Rice

Rice is an excellent accompaniment to vegetables whether you're a vegetarian, vegan, or omnivore. Vegetable fried rice is the easy way to work them both into one dish, but it doesn't have to be an Asian-inspired dish. Harissa spiced vegetable rice makes a nutritious side dish if you're looking for something spicy. If you want a one-dish meal, chicken, broccoli, cheese, and rice casserole is a favorite recipe, but you can leave out the chicken if you want to make it vegetarian. If you're going to turn your ingredients into soup, vegetable and wild rice soup makes a warm meal for cold winter days.

Vegetable Medley

Creating a vegetable medley conjures a convenient way to deliver many vegetables in one dish. Roasted root vegetables give you a delightful taste of winter while a vegetable medley mixed with quinoa gives you a high-protein vegetarian main dish. If pasta is your preference, you can stir your medley into a vat of noodles with sauce -- cream, pesto, or tomato, there are multiple ways to make your dinner recipe delicious.

Roasted Veggies

As far as easy vegetable recipes go, you can't get easier than roasted veggies. Parmesan-crusted roasted veggies make summer squash crispy, but if you want to make a whole meal of roasted vegetables, you can make a sandwich of them or mix them with eggs for a frittata. Cauliflower roasts well -- season it with chipotle, garlic, or curry for a simple side dish, or cut it into steaks and do a simple seasoning of salt and pepper for a light and healthy main dish. There are thousands of recipes on Yummly to inspire you.

Pasta

Pasta primavera is not the only way to work vegetables into your noodle dishes. You can mix summer veggies into your pasta salad or roast autumn vegetables like delicata squash or butternut squash into your bowtie pasta and sprinkle it with Parmesan cheese for an elegant and filling vegetarian meal. If you want to make pasta from your vegetables, you can try your hand at zoodles or make spinach pasta for green noodles. If wheat is a dietary issue, you can always sub in rice noodles for an otherworldly spring vegetable pasta bake. The recipes don't end there-there are thousands of vegetable pasta recipes to browse and try on Yummly.
