Vegetables I've never tried.






Those green ones that look like little cabbage

Damm, gurl. Do you live in a food desert?

i love turnips, squash, beets and BRUSSEL SPROUTS.

by Anonymousreply 210/12/2018

Why haven’t you tried them OP? What’s your process here?

by Anonymousreply 310/12/2018

I love brussel sprouts too.

I don't have a process, they look nasty. OP

I have never been able to get beets, turnip greens or collards into my mouth because of the smell, otherwise, I've tried all the ordinary vegetables here in the U.S.

Do you hate broccoli and cauliflower too?

I used to hate parsnips when they were served to me boiled. However, after deciding to bake them in my oven I discovered that they were really quite tasty.

Time for you to grow up, OP.

TOP.. try roasting vegetables, with a little olive oil.. salt and pepper. Roasting brings them to a new, delicious level.

OP... not top..

Had never had parsnips until Thanksgiving dinner last year when the hostess folded them into the mashed potatoes. Delicious.

I’ll save you some trouble, beets are disgusting and taste like dirt.. I’ve never had a parsnip in my life..

Parsnips are a great alternative to potatoes!

You've had things that smell worse in your mouth.

Roast parsnips are wonderful, same with roasted Brussels sprouts. I’ve never met a vegetable I didn’t like (of course I’ve never met Trump so....)

by Anonymousreply 2210/12/2018

I served parsnips au gratin last Thanksgiving. They came out perfectly cooked. My relatives all thought they were potatoes.

All vegetables are good, except for cauliflower which is really just a fart masquerading as a vegetable.

by Anonymousreply 2710/12/2018

Haha r27. But I love cauliflower. I don't love farts.

by Anonymousreply 2810/12/2018

Parsnips are surprisingly good. Kale is bitter. Turnips ate okay. Beets, yuck. Don’t like the texture of squash.

by Anonymousreply 2910/12/2018

I've had every vegetable. Liked them all.

by Anonymousreply 3010/12/2018

I thought I hated beets until I had them roasted. My parents loved pickled beets and that shit is nasty.

by Anonymousreply 3110/12/2018

R14 (and others) for the win. Roasting with olive oil and salt makes a world of difference.

Roasted Parsnips are just fantastic. I'd bet R23 Parsnips were wonderful.

My grandmum was a terrible cook. And she taught me mum everything she knew. I grew up on boiled turnips. Mushy turnips. Turnips with that smell R8 refers to. YUCK! But cutting them into french-fry shapes and roasting in the over changes them to something completely different. And completely delicious.

We have a parsnip thread!

I don't like boiled okra... very slimy (like snot)... but pickled okra is good. That's the only way I can eat them.

by Anonymousreply 3410/12/2018

Beets are delightful if you add vinegar and dill to cut the earthy, sweet taste.

I eat baby pickled beets.

Roasted root vegetables= delicious! Sautéed greens with fresh garlic and red pepper flakes= also delicious! I was well into adulthood before I ever tried any greens other than iceberg lettuce (not even green!) or root vegetable other than potatoes or carrots (which are also excellent roasted)

Parsnip and parmesan soup is lovely this time of year. Also roasted beets with goat cheese and croutons. You're missing out, OP.

Salt roast your beets. I do when I want to be a kitchen show off - otherwise I can't cook for shit.

I misread the title as “Vegetables I’ve never trusted” and couldn’t think of one.

by Anonymousreply 4410/12/2018

I love parsnips, turnips, rutabaga.

I cannot tolerate Beets (too earthy) and fennel (licorice). And I have given both of them several tries. Just can't.

Beets make your shit red.

I never liked cooked turnips, but when I was a kid, my Mom would give me a half a turnip (raw) when she was preparing to cook them, and they actually have a sweet, aromatic taste and smell. Sliced raw turnip is actually a nice, unusual addition to a crudite platter.

When I make beef pot roast, I normally add carrots and potatoes, and I treat parsnips just like carrots: they come out wonderfully when cooked that way.

I like butternut and acorn squash: cut them in half, scoop out the seeds, and bake them with the oven with a pat of butter in the cavity, and a sprinkling of cinnamon.

My Mom used to serve us pickled beets when I was a kid, and I never cared for them. It's still one of the only vegetables I avoid.

I cook kale, collards, mustard greens and turnip greens all the same way: cooked a long time with a ham hock in a big pot of water. Give the ham hock time to give up its flavor, then remove from the pot, and chop the cooked meat into small bits, and return to the pot. Serve with a splat of vinegar and a bit of hot sauce. They're also nice if they cut rather small, and sauted with a bit of olive oil (not a very hot flame), and some minced garlic.

For some reason, I've never liked Brussel sprouts, although I like all the other cruciferous vegetables. My Mom and my brother loved them.

BTW, you can cook lettuce, and it's very nice. You would want to use something like Boston lettuce: Julia Child demonstrates making 'braised lettuce' on YouTube.

R46 True. But it will be the one time it's not from a big cock, you whores.

I would love to hear from anyone who has had, or can find, Salsify. Farmers don't grow it and grocers don't know what the fuck I'm talking about when I ask for it.

Supposedly it tastes like oysters .

by Anonymousreply 5310/13/2018

If you have a garden, salsify seeds can be purchased online for just a few dollars.

by Anonymousreply 5410/13/2018

R53, Salsify is actually naturalized in parts of the US. The seed heads look like giant dandelion puffballs. I've seen it growing wild within a few blocks of my house, in waste areas, but I don't have the nerve to dig any up to try easting: I'd be too afraid of some kind of contamination.

honey roasted parsnips are so good and they have quite a sweet taste already so the added honey is perfection.
