Squasch and it's tied with zucchini

Simon said...

Brussel sprouts. Haven’t found a way to cook them yet that makes me want to eat them.

Humor Me said...

Tomatoes. Plain, ordinary tomatoes.

gauloise said...

Okra, it is so slimy.

For fruits, it is bananas, they smell alone makes me really sick.

@simon if you toss brussel sprouts in olive oil and roast them in a hot oven until they are turning brown and crisp they are really good. They lose the "cabbage" taste

MontanaMarriott said...

I'm with you @Simon I have had tons of folks tell me "Oh that's cus you never tried my Brussels sprouts" sorry nothing can take away that bitter taste they have, ICK NAST!!

cat said...

I've tried more than one recipe and they are just nasty.

Patty said...

Boil in water and butter
Yum

Zebra Seasoning said...

Okra YES. Gross and slimy.
Eggplant. It hurts my tongue.

momo said...

beets

BBore said...

Bell peppers, just gross.

Alma's Daughter said...

Habanero peppers—never again! But I'll take the okra, Brussel sprouts, eggplant and tomatoes.

missann said...

It's a tie between beets and avocado

ArmchairEngineer666 said...

Cardi-B

Farmgirl said...

Olives

Troy Dyer said...

Roast me in the toaster oven and add bacon and balsamic. So good!

Mooney said...

@simon, @troy gave you the key ingredient. Balsamic. Brussels need savory or umami, salt and acid for the pallet.

Sarton Bander said...

Beetroot. tastes of mud. texture vile

gfbcpa said...

Mashed potatoes

DANTHEMANHSV said...

STEPHEN HAWKING. NEVER LIKED THE GUY

Simon said...

@montana right? That’s all i hear is you haven’t tried mine. But i have tried a ton of ways and it’s still just not working for me.

Simon said...

O’k, going to get out the balsamic and try again. We will see!

shakey said...

But ... Stephen is the smartest of all vegetables.

I dislike most vegetables. Broccoli/cauliflower (esp cauliflower, even with cheese on it). I liked brussel sprouts for a little while but I don't find them bitter, they taste like paste (like avocado to me, don't get the hype).

However, I do like one vegetable that many seem to dislike - PARSNIPS!

TellMeLies said...

Olives. and I really dislike bell peppers. But the MOST disgusting food of all is BANANAS!!!! And melon!

cheesegrater15 said...

Eggplant. I just can't.

Thia said...

Beets and avocado are so disgusting.

Robyn S said...

Green bell peppers. Ugh.

rosemary booker said...

Goddamn sweet potatoes & eggplants. However I do like sweet potato fries.

Blue Haired Witch said...

Yellow squash. Tasteless and watery no matter how it is prepared.

Snatch and Ladders said...

Fennel.

Jimbonius said...

@gauloise that's true about the brussel sprouts! Add some sea salt and bacon on top and they're really pretty good. Otherwise, @simon is right and I can't eat them at all.

Thorne said...

Butternut squash is disgusting.

kits said...

Beets :-P

gauloise said...

@blue haired witch if you quarter it and slice them, then saute with garlic and olive oil until they are browned and crisp all the water will go away. They have to be almost burnt to have flavor and no water

you can toss with pasta or rice and some parsley.

Or grill them.

but steamed or boiled they are gross

Sunkist said...

I actually like every vegetable on earth EXCEPT ass-paragus. It smells like pee and the texture is awful

squirrelmistress said...

cauliflower. o that's so gross!

Gator said...

Any kind of beans....GAG.

Super Comic Fun Time! said...

Kale! Is it even a vegetable? I think people only eat it in public to prove they have health virtue and then go home and down a whole box of Ho-Hos or Ding Dongs.

Green cardboard is more satiating.

Count Jerkula said...

Lima beans

Ann said...

Brussell sprouts. I don't care how you fix them they are disgusting.

Baby Face said...

Squash...yuk!!!

notthisagain said...

okra - that weird veggie is 100% disgusting/WTF

hunter said...

BELL PEPPERS - the worst, all colors

MissDavie said...

Green peppers are the only vegetable I dislike and they are very bad for you too.

Gen-z99 said...

Cabbage.......i hate it.......i dislike it.......i dsepise it........i loathe it........i abhor it.........i'm repulsed by it.God i hate cabbage!

Gen-z99 said...

Ummmm are mushrooms a vegetable?

taurus1987 said...

onions

Melvin G. said...

Sauerkraut...by a million miles.

MissPeach said...

Brussel sprouts roasted and then tossed with bacon are soooo good!

Menace Roddman said...

I hate beets with a passion I normally reserve for pedophiles, murderers, and people who make their potato salad with miracle whip. Absolutely disgusting.

Ninki Menjaj said...

This is such a contrast compared to the stories we get told. It’s kale btw

txredhd said...

Fucking Okra and green bell peppers!

gdaddy said...

Soupy Sales

gauloise said...

also celery I hate the flavour

Gen-z99 said...

Kindly explain why they bad for us?

Honey Bunny said...

Peas and okra.

Pogue Mahone said...

Brussels Sprouts! YUCK!!

Teresa said...

Sprouts in general

Sephya said...

Eggplant 🍆

a beautiful virago named hope said...

Fucking kale. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck.

Y'all need to try your okra fried. Lightly breaded, sprinkled with pepper, and pan fried in oil until it's crispy.

TwoDots said...

Sweet potatoes. Get them out of my face, now! 🤢

Joel Theriot said...

Raw onion.

DarylsBigFan said...


Spinach and Brussels sprouts

OKay said...

I absolutely love any and all vegetables...except green beans for some reason, but I do like the spicy pickled kind.

Mango said...

Slimy okra. I’m not thrilled with tomatoes but I do like plum tomatoes.

Teachermom said...

#1 Miss Peach. Brussels sprouts with bacon and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar is like candy to me. I literally order extra to take home when I see it being offered at a restaurant. Wegmans deli area usually has a wonderful shaved Brussels sprout version that is so yummy. I love most veggies but hate sweet potatoes, and I have tried them in every conceivable way. They seriously make me want to hurl.

fairylights said...

Okra. I have yet to find a way to make it palatable.

Aquagirl said...

Lima Beans, Red Onions

All of you Brussel sprouts & 🥑 haters can send them my way. I’ll also take the whole nightshade family.

emeraldcity said...

I love my vegies, a plate of steamed veg with butter salt and pepper is one of my favourite meals. Not a fan of B sprouts , one or two is my limit and don't like the slimy texture of Okra or anything with a bitter taste like kale. If you're classing bell peppers/chillies as a veg you can leave them off my plate as well. Bell peppers are only good when they are red (ripe)and the skin is charred off and they are cooked

Otherwise I'll eat most veg, really depends on how they are cooked.

@ Shakey I love parsnips as well.

Sd Auntie said...

onions, broccoli and all cruciferous vegetables. like green onions though

rabbit said...

Humans weren't meant to eat vegetables. That's why they taste so bad just by themselves.
However, my mother made the absolute best fried eggplant. Sliced, salted, drained, dipped in beaten egg, dipped in cornmeal, fried in lots of butter. Absolute heaven! That's the problem with vegetables--they don't taste good unless slathered in lots of fat--cheese, butter, oil. Just ask, How do you like your fat delivered?

EponymousAnonymoud said...

Deep fried Brussels sprouts with your choice of dipping sauce could be a game changer for you.

EponymousAnonymoud said...

I’m having a hard time thinking of a veg I won’t eat prepared SOME way or another. I guess sprouts. They’re an E. coli trap. And radicchio. It’s so bloody bitter.

EponymousAnonymoud said...

Also the lesser squashes - acorn, spaghetti, etc.

Samantha the 1st said...

Nothing bitter.

I love some of the ones others are naming as hated.

We can trade vegetables then.

Samantha the 1st said...

"Kale! Is it even a vegetable?"

Form of cabbage, I think.

It's horrid.

Samantha the 1st said...

"I guess sprouts. They’re an E. coli trap" - Epon

Yesss and they put them on everything in any healthy restaurant. You can often till see the dirt on them.

"No sprout, please."

* everything arrives under thick sprouts blanket*

"Could I please have this w/out sprouts."

"Just pick them off. They're good for you."

Thought bubble: You're the server, not my parent...Grr

They're so germ ridden, and besides when you remove a thing it takes the good stuff with it. AND no flavor, AND looks like worms. ICK

I don't like bitter greens either Epon. We might both be super tasters.

Lex said...

Brussels sprouts tastes like farts made solid no matter how I cook them.

Samantha the 1st said...

Never had a brussels sprout.

Nothing about their look, smell or reputation enticed me.

They could qualify as a blind item here, they are so rank.

Goodau said...

I hate Kale.
Pan fry Brussel sprouts with chopped onion or shallots and diced bacon, ground pepper and salt. Yum!

UnicornsRReal said...

Fave Veg: Stephen Hawking

Samantha the 1st said...

Goodau doesn't heat reduce their bitterness? Or removing part of the plant?

Unknown said...

Celery,I hate it with a passion. it tasre bitter to me. I don't mind if its cooked in s casserole something.

Pepperoni10010 said...

Any type of cabbage. yuke!

AbbyRock said...

Beets is the only vegetable I will not eat.

Samantha the 1st said...

If you don't like red beets, try golden beets. Totally different.

Celery mainly tastes salty to me; if it's in a dish, that is almost all I can taste.

Roxanne said...

Cilantro

riffer73 said...

Kiwi fruit. A lot of work with very little payoff at the end.

Disparaging Remark said...

I like most veggies, but could do without eggplant and corn. That being said...my husband loves corn pudding, so I make it at least once a year.

AkhaldanSolo said...

Wondering if it's just that thread.

Samantha the 1st said...

That's kind of you, Disparaging Remark.

Corn pudding is yum. AKA corn souffle.

Brussel Sprouts

Kansa said...

Beets and brussel sprouts. I remember eating them as a child, and so wanted to try them over here in Belgium, where food not only looks great, it tastes great. Nope! Not even close, on either of these! I know people say that they can be delicious and I've looked at recipes. Just NO. The other thing I can't stand is cilantro. It tastes like soap to me and makes anything else that it is in, taste like soap. (This is a genetic thing.)

Samantha the 1st said...

"Cilantro"

Did everyone know that the way people perceive cilantro (gross or yum), or the depth to which they taste bitter foods, is genetic?

Kimberlini said...

Hate beets.

Love brussel sprouts and lima beans.
