You just eat them. Try preparing them different ways, try them several times before you give up on them.

For cauliflower, try one of these recipes:   http://meljoulwan.com/2009/09/03/eat-your-vegetables-cauliflower-fouscous-pilaf/

For zucchini or summer/yellow squash, maybe one of these:

I still think summer squash and zucchini are gross after cooking, unless you get a lot of the water out of them. They're much better raw, and even better if salted, drained, and rinsed to get out the watery texture. I love roasted cauliflower; just toss the florets in olive oil and bake on a sheet pan at 400F for 15-20 minutes. It's also good lightly steamed, and then tossed in lemon and olive oil, maybe with some Kalamata olives, capers, and pine nuts.

I think a lot of us grew up on overcooked vegetables. But now we have an opportunity to re-learn how good vegetables are meant to be when they're treated simply.
