Perhaps your garden provided a bumper crop, or the vegetable tray from last night's party went uneaten. Here are some ways to use up extra vegetables:

Quiche is a very simple dish to make and lends itself well to just about any vegetable. Just fill up an empty pie shell with a mixture of beaten eggs and milk, shredded cheese and chopped up veggies. Season to taste and bake until golden brown on top.

Veggies are also good stir-fried or roasted. Sauté your vegetables with soy sauce and sesame oil. Add hot pepper flakes for some spice, and serve over rice. To roast vegetables, just toss with olive oil, salt and pepper and roast in the oven until the vegetables are soft. You can eat them in a sandwich, as is, or with rice.

And don't forget you can always freeze leftover veggies to save for a soup to make later.
