    Personally, I'd make chips with the potatoes and give the rest away - I don't eat veg! I wish I liked it but can't stand the stuff. Wish I could be of more help! :Hilarious

    Nope, can't help it, I have to say it.........

    Make a rainbow?

    Sorry, but I'd be the same as @DolomiTTe, use the potatoes (maybe the broccoli) but give away the rest.

    Edit to say: I love vegetable soup, but not keen on veg 'as is' and am not familiar with a lot on your list.

    Roasted cauliflower steaks. You can also make steaks with the red cabbage

    Cream of broccoli soup or potato and kale soup.

    Cheesy cauliflower, potato, sprout and broccoli gratin

    Red cabbage and onion coleslaw or braised red cabbage and onion.

    If I have them I add other things like peppers, mushrooms and beans to my dishes. I normally cook a load of various kinds of dried beans, or quinoa, bulgur or barley then portion them into plastic bags, and freeze them so they're instantly ready to add to things

    The people I get a weekly veg box from have loads of recipes on their website, which I use. They are Riverford Organic Farmers and you can access the recipes without signing up to their boxes. Enjoy!

    Riverford are ace
    They have quite a few unusual veg, when in season too
    It was through them, years ago, that first tasted romenesco cauliflower, (forever known as Christmas tree cauliflower, so kids were quite young) cavalo Nero and celeriac, all quite common in supermarkets now
    purple potatoes, Apache potatoes, purple heirloom tomatoes and yellow carrots etc, again all available quite commonly now
    As you say, their recipes are, and always have been, remarkable in both their taste and ease of making
    @catz4m8z
    how about making special fried rice with the cauliflower, it's very easy to use a grater to make cauli rice
    Potato, onion and broccoli gratin
    Kale crisps or Chinese 'seaweed'

    thanks guys! Some excellent suggestions that I will def be trying (I esp love the sound of the festive red salad, and I have most of the bits in!).
    At the moment I like cooking up a variety of veggie dishes for the week and doing a mix n' match buddha bowl type approach.
    Might have to try kale in the oven again (last attempt resulted in kale charcoal!LOL).

    I really dont understand not loving veggies....even when Im on a junk food binge I always get the craving to go back to them!;)

    I love my veg steamed and always have at least 3 with a meat/fish dinner. My electric steamer is used daily.
    Just seen a suggestion for onions done in the slow cooker that I intend to have a go at, apparently you just put some oil in the bottom and fill with sliced onions and roast until they caramelise, then you can freeze in muffin tins.

    I use spinach and feta cheese in omelets, I think you could do the same with kale instead of spinach.

    The broccoli could go nice in a stir fry over rice noodles.

    Cauliflower soup is tasty.

    I used up all the veg in the fridge last week and made a big pan of stew, then made some herb & veggie suet dumplings and plonked them on top of the bubbling stew - very yummy and adds a bit of bulk :)

    You could make bubble & squeak with a cheesy topping.

    I dont mind some veg but some veg dont like me or my stomach, I'm pretty limited to what my stomach wont complain at! I love cheese and spring onion sandwiches but I suffer the next day. Same goes with tomatoes, garlic, peppers etc. Other veg I hate the taste or texture of - sweet potatoes, parsnips, celery, sweetcorn (the smell of that cooking makes me heave for some strange reason)
