Trick me into eating vegetables!

I joined a CSA to eat more vegetables but.... I kinda....hate vegetables. What are some great recipes to make me actually want to eat this stuff?

I DO eat relatively healthy. I eat mostly organic foods, and a good mix of protien, dairy, grains, just a little bit of sweets (that are also organic or homemade). But I don't eat nearly enough veggies, mostly due to the fact that I seriously don't like the taste of most of them. I mean, I'm an adult so i FORCE myself to eat some vegetables every day, but it makes me miserable and it's an agony to get through them. Blechh.
However, the other day I got a huge thing of kale from my CSA. Now, kale is easily one of the grosser things I've ever eaten. BUT someone showed me how to make kale chips, and, miracle, I consumed all the kale and wanted more! So what I'm looking for is similar suggestions/recipes/magic tricks that take ordinary vegetables and somehow make them more palatable. Make believe I'm a fussy toddler.
Things I absolutely will not eat under any circumstances - mushrooms, beans, and eggplant. There's no magic on earth that can make those things edible.
