Hate is a strong term but that is axactly how I feel about raisins, The taste and texture is like rot and mold. I have the same problem with a lot of wines, when I drink some I can taste the rot and mold in them. How ever I love fresh grapes.

 

Other foods I just don't like; custards, (except for vegan pumpkin pie), cabbages of any variety, cauliflower, peaches and apricots, (Ironic since my parents have two apricot trees that produce buckets of them every year.), cilantro, anything with eggs in it.

 

Foods I adore; avocadoes, nectarines, citrus fruits of any type, chocolate, anise flavored things, my homemade chocolate chip cookies, etc, etc.

Tomatoes. I feel sick just smelling/touching them. 

 

Funnily enough I can eat puree in things and have no problem with smooth pizza sauce.

 

But if there are even tiny bits of 'real' tomato and I get them in my mouth...I want to die.

 

I want to overcome this. I'm just not sure I can. It's probably a texture thing but they really haven't tasted good when I've accidentally bit into pieces before.

 

It makes things really awkward when eating out since often the only option on the menu is some kind of tomato sauce and pasta and I want to make myself seem like a non-fussy person in spite of all my dietary requirements. I really will eat ANY other plant foods. Yeugh.

Soy yogurt

I'm also not a big fan of chickpeas unless it's in hummus.

I'm also finding I'm developing an aversion to white rice. This has just recently come on & I'm not sure why?!

I like cooked onion but I don't really like fresh onion. It has a bad after taste.

 

Also, ginger. I don't like it.

Mushrooms. All of them. Yuck. I've tried to overcome it and tried to enjoy them, but I'm resigned to disliking them forever, which is really a shame since a lot of restaurants seem to think vegetarian=mushroom lover.

Mushrooms are a staple food for me. One of these days, I need to figure out how to cook portabella caps, since they sell fresh ones all the time at my local supermarket. They seem like just the right size to put on a bun and make a sandwich out of.

I usually brush the portabella caps with extra virgin olive oil and grill a few minutes on each side or you can brush with olive oil and broil a few minutes on each side in the oven grilled or sauteed` onions on top with a bun and your ready to go eat! smiley.gif

Cilantro! I love Mexican, Thai, and Indian food and I can't get away from the stuff! I just can't develop a taste for it no matter how many times I try it.

Culinary sophistication is no guarantee of immunity from cilantrophobia. In a television interview in 2002, Larry King asked Julia Child which foods she hated. She responded: “Cilantro and arugula I don’t like at all. They’re both green herbs, they have kind of a dead taste to me.”

“So you would never order it?” Mr. King asked.

“Never,” she responded. “I would pick it out if I saw it and throw it on the floor.”

 

I like arugula in small quantities. But Julia Child's sentiment toward both cilantro and arugula is hilarious. surprised.gif

Mayo - I'm vegan, but when I are dairy and eggs, I couldn't stand the stuff

Butter/margarine: tastes horrible

Oils: hate the feeling it leaves in your mouth, like a film of grease that's just disgusting... I never cook with oils for that reason

I feel the same way. I've found I can tolerate them diced and mixed in with other stuff. But even eating those cherry tomatoes makes me cringe. I tend to force myself to eat them though, especially when it's only one or two in a salad.

I don't like hummous. I had it once at a catered event and it was phenomenal. But anything I've had since is just horrendous. The restaurant isn't near me and I don't have a properly functional car so I can't get any. But if I could, I'd buy a large tub of it and just eat myself sick. I haven't had it in a good four years or so. It's making my mouth water now just thinking about it.

I'm picky about my hummus too. Once you've had it amazing, it's hard to go back. My favorite is the Sabra Olive.

I make my own hummus with ingredients that I like such as sun-dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, or roasted red peppers. The key is to use dried garbanzo (chickpeas) and then rehydrate them overnight in water and a few teaspoons of baking sodium (sodium bicarbonate). Then I cook them in fresh water for about 50 minutes - 1 hour at a steady simmer (I also like to add part of a Turkish bay leaf when I cook them since it imparts a lovely aroma and flavor). After that I just follow a hummus recipe as usual. Some people like tahini in their hummus and some don't. Since my local store doesn't carry it, I leave it out or I just use a few tablespoons of sesame seeds. Another key step is to use a blender, not a food processor, to make your own hummus since using a blender gives it the consistency that you find in restaurants. Canned beans can be used, but I don't think they taste as good.

 

Try this hummus recipe by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero of Veganomicon fame. It's a great basic recipe and you can change it as you see fit. Once you start making your own hummus you won't go back to the store-bought ones. (Homemade is tastier and more economical!)

I didn't like hummus either the first time I tried it, but now I can't get enough. Chickpeas are amazing. So healthy and yet so tasty.

Can't stand brussels sprouts or lima beans. Hummus, on the other hand, is awesome. Hummus spread + veggie burger = nom.

When I lived in Israel, I really hated hummus and olives. Within a short time of moving back to the UK, I couldn't get enough of them.

Isn't it amazing how our tastes change over time?

It is. It seams like human beings have an amazing ability to learn to like whatever they eat.

I've recently developed an aversion to uncooked tomatoes. I used to love them, and now I can't stand them. Unless we're talking about those delicious beefsteak and roma tomatoes that are only available in the summer. Those, I can stand. 

 

I tend to go through phases where I dislike certain foods, though. Long standing ones include white bread (tastes like sawdust) and overcooked pasta (the texture is horrific!) Bananas used to also be a biggie but in this past month I've become gaga over them. Funny how that happens!

Last night I decided I officially hate tempeh. I tried to like it and came close with a vegan burger I had at a restaurant that had so many tasty condiments on it I could barely taste the tempeh. And there were other occasions where it was okay but I just wasn't into it.

But then last night I tried the Tofurky maple bacon tempeh and it literally made me gag a bit. I tried some raw and it was horrible, then I tried it well cooked and it was still nasty so I ended up throwing the whole package out.

It makes me sad because I know a lot of people love it and it' s in a lot of vegan recipes but I'm just going to have to sub it when necessary from now on.

Did you see my review of that Tofurky bacon? It's truly horrid. I did eat that whole pack over three different meals, but I put it in wraps to cover up the flavor. It's bad. And I've tried regular tempeh with a flavorful sauce, etc. I just can't find a way to like it. 

 

:spew:

Yeah, I tried tempeh a couple of times, thinking maybe I'd just prepared it badly the first time, and now I just have a hard time believing anyone actually eats that stuff.

That sums up my experience with cooking tempeh.
