It's supereasy! Just blend 1-2 bananas, 6 halawi dates (those fresh, soft dates you find in Asian supermarkets), 1 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder, some cinnamon (I'm a cinnamon fiend... Leave out if you don't like or substitute with something like a small dash of cayenne for a spicy kick!) and enough chocolate soy milk to make the blender...um... blend tongue3.gif I like my smoothies super-thick, as in eat-with-a-spoon-thick, so add as much milk as you want!

 

Yeah, I did that once! So yummy, but I rarely have the patience to wait for them, so I usually end up boiling them and then mixing them with nutritional yeast and soy souce while they're still warm. Salty, cheesy goodness! hungry.gif

I really don't like fried foods, especially deep fried stuff, such as fries etc.

Marmite must be the creation of some demon from the underworld

Olives (but I'm trying to make myself like them... Now I can handle them when they're cut into tiny pieces and mixed with other food, such as a chickpea and sundried tomato salad)

Candy (yes, I'm strange... Though chocolate is my life)

Potato chips (any kind of chips really...)

Raw onions

Strong liquoer

Butter of any kind, dairy or plant based

Plain milk, used to like plain skimmed milk, but after going vegan I've yet to find a milk I can drink straight out of a glass. On cereal is fine, though!

Custard (pre-vegan days)

Cucumbers, though I can tolerate them in small doses

Dougnuts (just really greasy... My boyfriend loves them though!)

 

I have a bunch of non-vegan items I don't like, but I won't bother writing them down! grin.gif


you are so right about the butter!! I can have it in recipes, but if I can taste it ewwwww. Do you like the baked version of fried foods? like baked onion rings, pickles, fries?

YAY! I feel so alone as a butter-hating person... Most people just look at me like I'm mad and then I mention my dislike of fried stuff and they just shake their heads in disbelief... tongue3.gif Yes, I usually like the baked versions! The reason why I don't like fried stuff is because of the film of oil that seems to cling to your lips and mouth and it's just not pleasant and really hard to get off! So I guess you could say that I dislike overt fat ;) Not fat in general though, nuts and peanut butter is basically crack for me.

Every recipe for baked chickpeas adds oil - I've found they crisp best without any oil- not even the pan. I just sprinkle whatever spice, garlic powder, red pepper, salt and pepper, and bake at 400F. till they're done. Maybe 40 minutes?

Also with baked chickpeas the moisture content you start with is very important. One thing others have done that I do myself if starting with really wet chickpeas is to stick them in the oven for 15 minutes, take them out and let them cool, then stick 'em back in the oven for 30-45 minutes.

 

You can oven roast any bean - black beans are my favorite. I haven't seen anything other than chickpeas explode while oven roasting though.

 

But I digress ...

 

Add me to the olive dislikers. Especially black olives.

Anyone else constantly try foods they hate? Like you think you'll get over it! dizzy2.gif

I guess I can't get over just how horrible cilantro tastes, so if I'm around it, I taste some. It's still like laundry powder. 
I just tasted a bit of salsa with cilantro and again spit it out and rushed to rinse with water.

This is going to be one hell of a dinner party...

 

I was never a picky kid, I liked brussels sprouts and spinach at a young age and still do. I couldn't stomach the taste of plain milk though, must have had something to do with my lactose intolerance. I couldn't get enough of it in chocolate form though.

 

Can't do eggplant, raw celery, popcorn, anything that sticks to my teeth as they are sensitive. And no matter how hard I tried I can't enjoy anything about alcohol. I've been to a handful of parties and have had it offered to me and all I can do is take a few well meaning sips, pour it out, replace with water, and enjoy watching everyone else get trashed.

Just thought of another odd one. I used to like broccoli as a kid, but I really don't any more. I can tolerate it, when I order something that comes with broccoli at a restaurant, but it's probably my least favorite vegetable that I'll still eat, and I won't buy any from the supermarket to eat at home.

I do that with olives! I'm getting better at liking, or at least tolerating, them. Though I'm still not at the point where I can eat an olive by itself or eating a piece of one that is large enough for me to notice the texture, I now don't mind olives mixed in stuff such as hummus or salad. They need to be chopped up into tiny pieces though...

Cilantro-hate is often genetic - there's no getting over it! 

 

I have it too. That stuff tastes like soap to me.

I hate coffee too. I like the smell but the taste no at all. I think it is the coffee in general. not only the coffee to drink, but also a cookie or icecream with coffee I cannot eat it!

I can't stand beets or chard.  Taste like a big handful of dirt to me.  And although I cook with it pretty often, I'm fairly grossed out by nutritional yeast!

Tried them a couple of times but I can't get over the slime factor of okra. First time I cooked them I thought I must have done something very wrong.

Now I feel like I need to find some of this durian everyone is talking about.... never even heard of it.

As I understand it, durian tastes wonderfully sweet... it just smells like.... well, VERY strong and VERY BAD. I've heard different descriptions of the odor. Perhaps the candy wasn't smelly?...

 

I think I read someplace that they developed a durian that didn't smell God-awful, but it hasn't caught on. Some places ban durian from the premises because the odor is so offensive.

 

Britt- I think we're almost polar opposites, tastewise. I can eat grapefruit like an orange- no sugar, even! French fries and chips are always in danger of becoming an addiction to me. Okay- I guess we agree on hot peppers (see below) and I can take or leave fennel seed- too licoricey.

I've tested it- bitter melon, durian, pickled and subsequently sun dried cuttlefish in my pre-veggie days, all sorts of things and all the typical american foods.

Its like a super power, if society collapses I'll be fine on fresh dandelions and tree bark, in fact birch tree leaves are a source of protein... in case any post apocalyptic omni-zombies ask where I get it laugh.gif

 

Can anyone else simply like things at will?

I've tried cilantro several times, and it still smells bad to me and tastes like soap. If I order something in a restaurant, I don't ask them to leave cilantro out, and I have eaten foods with it rather than have them go to waste. Cilantro doesn't make me physically ill or anything. But if I'm making something from scratch and the recipe calls for cilantro, I just don't bother anymore. I wish I could like it.

 

Now, these hot chili peppers they keep developing that max out the Scoville scale... what's THAT about? These ghost peppers and things that make Habaneros seem wimpy by comparison... that's not food, it's a biological weapon.

The ghost pepper (bhut jalokia) is natural, it wasn't developed. And yes, it was used in India as a weapon for centuries! The question of if it is food or not... Dunno, but some like it hot! (like me!)
