Most of the veggies varies greatly depending on how you prepared, cooked and flavored them. But I think the two from the list I think I dislike regardless are corn and celery. Also not a big fan of spinach mostly due to its texture of it cooked, but at times it can taste pretty good. But that's rare.

I actually like Squash being if you cooked them and mush them, they make a good flavoring paste to various things you can mix it with. I always like doing this with brown rice.

I went for Brussels sprouts. And I have just now learned they aren't brussel sprouts. I don't mind them usually, but I find if you don't cook them right or well they get a bit bitter and gross tasting. I don't dislike most vegetables when I think about it. I don't love them either, it's just like, they are quite often bland or lacking something. All in how they are prepared or what they are served with. Like, I love a good salad. Or my mother's brown sugar carrots. But on their own carrots are just meh. Need a bit of sauce or something.



SplendidBob 05-23-2019 03:15 AM

Love sprouts :)

Hate the brocolli.

Haven't eaten pumpkin, don't intend to.

Most other vegetables are tolerable, or nice depending on how they are cooked. You can make most things tolerable by cooking in butter, for example.

Potato's shouldn't really be in the vegetables category imo. Vegetables are basically all grouped under the category of "foods with minimal hedonic value". Potato doesn't belong in that group. ;)

Persephone The Dread 05-23-2019 03:37 AM

I don't like broccoli or cauliflower much. I haven't tried kale, not sure I've tried squash either.

Suchness 05-23-2019 05:37 AM

Oh yeah, I don't really like butter beans.

nubly 05-23-2019 09:44 AM

You should try them mate.

Pumpkin and celery are the worst. I don't think I could digest celery if I was paid to do so, lol

Broccoli - not a huge fan, but it's tolerable. I have liked some creamy sauces with broccoli.
Beans - are these vegetables? :P
Peas, Corn - likeable
Spinach - adult spinach can be bitter, which is why I'm guessing a lot of people don't like it. I like to dice it up finely and add it to a bechamel sauce, with a bit of sugar, to take off the bitterness.
Kale - pretty good mixed with boiled potatoes, oil, salt, and a bit of garlic
Parsnips - this one is pretty bad. I forgot to vote for it
Lettuce - nice for a salad
Tomato - best vegetable ever
Radish - they're fairly watery and bland, so I'm not sure why people wouldn't like them
Capsicum/Bell Pepper - I love them cooked
Cauliflower - I'm a fan. I like making a "mashed potatoes" version of this vegetable, where you use cauliflower instead of potato
Cabbage - great cooked or raw
Zucchini/Squash - not sure what the difference is, but I love them
Carrot - OK
Potato - amazing, obviously
Brussels Sprouts - haven't had them much but they were OK from what I remember

farfegnugen 05-23-2019 08:11 PM

I don't care for peas by themselves, but they're okay in stirfry and other dishes. I am not big into cooked mushrooms, I suppose that's not a veggie, though I don't mind them raw in salads is okay. I don't like a lot of cooked onion either in most things.

That Random Guy 05-24-2019 08:44 AM

Disclosure
 
I only voted for Brussels Sprouts because the only time I recall trying them, they were prepared horribly.

That being said, I'm one of those folk that actually really likes vegetables (when they're prepared well). If we're talking about raw vegetables, then I think the only thing I'd want to eat is Asparagus.

Everything else sucks when it's raw.. no offense. :lol

Preparing vegetables well enough is arguably one of the reasons why the Japanese diet so well. That's half of what they eatóand also smaller portions.

Eleonora91 05-24-2019 10:52 AM

I love all of the vegetables listed above LOL
Being a vegetarian I've learnt to try out new vegetables and like them.

My least favourite is chicory which I actually never eat but it's traditionally used in dishes in my region. Pretty sure most non-italian people haven't even heard of it.

Hank Scorpio 05-24-2019 08:39 PM

Broccoli is gross.
Lettuce is too and so annoyingly omnipresent.
But the worst is cauliflower. Smells like feet and for all I know tastes like them too.

BeautyandRage 05-24-2019 09:18 PM

Celery is ****ing gross what is it even like nasty flavored crunch water wtf

This needs to be explained. I'll let the radish thing slide but people are not supposed to dislike cauliflower.

Silent Memory 05-24-2019 09:42 PM

I saw radishes yesterday. :) I kept getting them mixed up with rhubarb before this thread, which I think I got mixed up with long, red potatoes. I can only remember cauliflower as being like a tasteless, colourless version of broccoli. Maybe I should try it again.

I’ve been mixing a spoonful of bechamel sauce and some melted mozzarella cheese though my vegetables, and it makes them much nicer. Even carrots are okay like that.

Wonder if they ate radishes on the Titanic, maybe that's what threw them off.

If they ate cabbage on the Titanic, that might have given them so much flatulence that they flew off the deck like an over inflated balloon that was let go before the knot was tied.

rabidfoxes 05-25-2019 05:16 AM

From the above list, pumpkin. It's a bit too sweet for my liking, but I can enjoy it on some occasions (say, if it's cubed quite finely and then roasted until crispy and caramelised).

Celery is also awful but I'll let it off because it's useful in a lot of things, such as stocks or battuto, and can be nice if charred.

I eat most vegetables, but my no.1 vegetable enemy is swede. To me, it tastes mildly alcoholic, like vegetables that are starting to putrify. Swede is probably the only vegetable I don't eat. No amount of butter can redeem it.

Had a whole bunch of asparagus an hour or so ago. Man, asparagus pee is almost as impressive as brussels sprout farts.

I love asparagus. It's kind of a pain to buy and store and prepare though. It's kind of expensive. It's kind of a delicacy.

harrison 05-27-2019 03:50 AM

I think out of that list squash are sort of a nothing flavour - they seem to be mostly water. A bit like zucchini. I used to put some zucchini in my pasta sauce sometimes but don't bother anymore. Don't really like it.

Swedes and turnips used to be used more ages ago - my Mum used to use them in casseroles I think. She used to make an incredible one with braised lamb chops and dumplings for my father. It was great. The older generation often knew how to cook things to make them taste better - they had to learn how to make do.

What actually is a disco potato? I'm assuming you're a fan of potatoes? :lol

Or maybe there was more of "eat, shut up and be grateful"? :D

I've had cookbooks dating from XIX c. to 70s and a lot of the recipes were very, very risky. Jelly moulds of pureed celery and the like. Intriguing, but vile!

Silent Memory 05-27-2019 05:34 AM

I was reading about tofu before because I wanted to know what it tasted like, and it said itís a vegetable. I never knew that. You can eat it in a lot of different ways. Maybe Iíll get some next time we go shopping. :)

Tofu is great. You can do all sorts of things with it but I usually make it into a paste and mix it with protein powder and chia seeds. A lot of people fry it or whatever but you don't actually have to cook it. It's perfectly safe to eat it raw. Though if you do eat it without anything else, it kind of tastes like you're eating soy milk. :lol

I had a feeling that might get a rise out of one or two of you. :)

(can't get away with anything on this bloody forum) :roll (j/k)

My Mum was a great cook but I do know what you're talking about.

My mom has a bunch of it growing in her garden. It comes back on its own every year and has for as long as I can remember. Neither me or her eat it, but my sister eats it like candy and takes bags full of it every spring. I can't stand the taste or smell of it.

Evo1114 05-27-2019 03:26 PM

From the list, I guess radishes would be the worst...though none of them on the list are too bad. I find peas to be pretty useless also. Regular tomatoes are fine, but damn, the cherry tomatoes that people somehow enjoy are hideously awful. A lot of stuff isn't that great on their own (like raw onions), but are just fine when mixed with stuff. (Which is why nobody sits down with a fork and knife and enjoys a raw onion for a snack). Asparagus and sweet potato are easily the best. My coworker friend's family has a massive asparagus field that they manage and every day, all summer, she brings in freshly picked asparagus. I eat that **** raw. It is certainly great cooked with like Parmesan cheese, but nothing wrong at all with eating it raw. Asparagus pee is definitely fun.

Does she freeze it or something? Even though I like it a lot it often goes bad before I can eat it when I buy it.

slyfox 05-28-2019 12:24 AM

Not on the list, but I don't like sweet potatoes/yams.


Canned spinach I tried tasted nasty but raw in small amounts is ok.


Don't like boiled or microwaved broccoli. Tastes better raw or baked.


Pumpkin pie is good, but wasn't a fan of pumpkin when I tried it stir-fried or raw. Maybe I picked a bad variety though.

I don't think I like squash.

Not sure of kale or parsnips. Could picture them being ok at least in raw form.

The asparagus in my garden started coming up a little over a week ago. Haven't been getting a ton but what I get I cook in butter and top pasta with. I like that it is a perennial, but you can only harvest it for a short time each year and then it takes up a good amount of space. Feel tempted to replace it with something else(blueberries, more raspberries, or some annual that will produce for longer or that can be replanted for multiple harvests), but feel bad with the time I have invested in the asparagus(about 3 years) because it takes a couple years for the plants to mature enough to produce big enough edible stalks. For now I'll probably keep it because I'd like to have a perennial veg/fruit garden with a lot of variety.

If you don't have room to grow asparagus it grows wild in a lot of places. Have never collected wild asparagus because I never find it at the right time of year. If you find it you can make note of it for the next year though. It likes places like ditches, the side of the road, and the edges of farm fields. Have been tempted to try to hunt some but have been busy with other things.

A lot of people dislike radishes. This is so strange to me. :um I can eat 10 whole radishes straight - I actually need to moderate how much I eat, otherwise I just won't stop.

I'm curious: what do you dislike about radishes? The taste? The texture?

I haven't had them very often, but from what I recall, they have a sort of bitter taste. Not saying I hate them, just that if all the above were in front of me, they would probably be the last thing I'd choose. I have been a 'repeat customer' of radishes, so I must like them at least a little bit.
