Default Favorite way for Veggies

There are two methods that I tend to use.
I think the best is steaming with some simple seasonings. The results are low calorie yet tasty.
The other favorite is a version of stir-fry where I use a fry pan (aka: saute' pan) with some butter to start, then pour 1/2 cup of chicken broth with seasonings and cover and pan steam.

I also like the microwave steaming method, but it really does depend on the veggie I suppose I have a favourite method for cooking each vegetable as I tend to cook each vegetable in a certain way.

Even I cook in the same manner. Most of the veggies cook in same way.

I prefer roasting as, it is quick, simple, and is an excellent way for cooking vegetables as it preserves the vitamins, flavors and minerals.

Thanks for the inspiration tigerlilly. I am definitely going to try using the microwave for veggies. One thing I like to do is use lemon, I find that it helps me get away without using salt. I was wondering if there are special pairings of vegetables and particular spices that are matches made for each other?

I like to roast them with herbs, and I agree with the poster who likes to use lemon. So do I.

I like broccoli, EVOO and fresh garlic over pasta.
