Avocado

Cow's milk

Ice cream (I'm OK with vegan ice cream). I guess it's me being able to taste the milk that makes me hate regular ice cream.

Yogurt (both vegan and non-vegan)

I hate cheese on everything except pizza, and grilled sandwiches. And I only like mozzarella. The smell of cheese on pasta makes me want to throw up.

Spinach

Pears

Mustard

Raw onion (love sautéed onion)

Green olives

Doughnuts

I dislike most candy

Pop (soda)

Beet

Pumpkin

Baked pasta (not so much because of the taste but because of the texture)

White rice

Love sweet potato fries, but hate sweet potato cooked any other way.

Quinoa

Pineapple

I'm OK with carrots on vegetable rice if they're in very tiny pieces, other than that I don't like them.

My various vegan brownies

avocado

cilantro

 

I just made yet another recipe for brownies. My sons, again, like them. I'm again, disgusted.

I may not try again...and I so loved brownies.

This really isn't vegan but Mayonaise, oh my gosh, I can't stand it! It is disgusting. Also I hate hate hate parmesan cheese, actually I hate most cheeses except cottage cheese, but parmesan is the worst. And when I ate  Chicken parm one time I almost spit it out, it was disgusting! I hope this doesn't sound mean but I really dislke Italian food and Italian sauces and seasonings. I don't know why but it just does nothing for me.

I can't remember if I mentioned yogurt in this thread. I can't understand how anyone can eat that stuff. It's not just that I dislike the taste like with other foods (see the tempeh comment above). The couple of times I tried it, yogurt actually set off my gag reflex, so I really had a very hard time even swallowing it, and gave up quickly.

I don't hate any food, but I can't eat these: mushrooms, papaya, mango, guava and melon. Some canned peas are horrible too, but I eat fresh peas all the time. Unlike most people tho, I love olives :D

Reading this thread lets me know just how lucky I am.  There are so many things that others here hate but I really like.

 

When I used to eat shrimp (rarely) I liked fried okra better.  Vegetables are the best foods ever.

 

Fruits are good but veggies are even better.  People at work even tease me in a friendly way about the salads I eat almost every day.

 

I don't know of anything I hate but I can take it or leave it when it comes to ice cream, cake, and pie but put a danish or bear claw (I hope a bear claw is vegetarian even though the name includes the name for a mammal. :) ) in front of me and watch out.

Veggie are awesome. I love fruits and veggie more everyday.

 

But pie....oh that's my favorite dessert. I also adore bear claws. I'm going to try experimenting with more dessert (or quasi-dessert) recipes that use fruit or vegetables.

Personally, I can't stand avocado. I even hate touching it if I slice it for somebody.

I do love kale, but, I've had some pretty awful kale!

I've tried growing it and it was only good when really young, and the ones labeled local at farmers markets were really tough and bitter.

Don't know if it's the soil or variety.

 

Yes, avocados are the poop of plants. I get queasy just looking at one.

Scrambled eggs make me gag unless cooked exactly right (for me, this means they can't be at all overcooked or have any brown spots.) I won't order eggs or omelets in restaurants because of this, only cook them myself at home.

Most foods I don't like I can still manage to eat in order to be polite, e.g. aubergine / egg plant.

 

BUT I hate bananas to the point that I can't bear to touch one, or eat anything that may have been near one. Mean people used to chase me round the office with the skins. And the SMELL...! :spew:and I can easily taste the "half a banana" in an innocent smoothie, even though people try to tell me I can't.

 

Also can't physically hold down cucumber or melon. Courgette and marrow makes me heave if I'm forced to eat too much, bleurgh!

Toffuti American cheese slices - Nasty!  Mind you - it's the only flavour I've tried in this brand, so maybe I should give the others a go.

Tempeh - I want to like it, but just can't. Maybe it's the way I cook it. 

Baked beans - canned - it's a texture thing.  I don't like kidney beans andd friends  very much at all because of the texture, but I'm learning to tolerate them.

Case in point ... orange and chocolate are awesome separately, but once they are mixed, I'll pass.

I can't find bbq chips that are actually vegetarian-friendly. All the one's I've found have had chicken/beef powder in them.

I'm not sure what year that you're quoting me from, but the regular Lay's BBQ chips supposedly do not/did not contain meat products. The baked Lays' version does. I wouldn't recommend eating either, though.

I like raisins. I've never actually tried brussel sprouts. I keep hearing how much other people hate them, so I figure if the majority hates them, they aren't worth going out of my way to try them.

Zucchini.  I loathe the stuff.  Ever noticed how EVERY restaurant in America serves it in with their "mixed vegetables"?  Any time I hear "vegetables" without an explanation of what it is (squash, beans, etc.) I brace myself for the zucchini to arrive on the scene.  Also not real happy about celery and beets!

Ok, I have a new one - feta cheese. I think I'd rejected it in the past, but didn't really remember. But my office brought in lunch for everyone today from a sandwich place, and the veg option was a "Mediterranean sandwich" that includes feta. This stuff is gross. One more non-vegan food I can make a point of avoiding from now on.

Brussels sprouts are delicious. Just don't overcook them. Spicy dijon mustard is a good topping, but that requires liking mustard.

You may already be aware that the soap taste may be genetic.

Quote:
Dislike of coriander has long been thought to be a partly inherited trait and not just an artefact of cultural practices and exposure to the herb. Charles Wysocki, a behavioural neuroscientist at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, says that surveys of hundreds of twins he conducted beginning in the early 2000s at the annual Twins Days festival in Twinsburg, Ohio, suggests that coriander preference is influenced by genes. He found that about 80% of identical twins shared the same preference for the herb. But fraternal twins (who share about half their genome) agreed only about half the time. “Strong evidence suggests there's a heritable component to the reactions that people have to cilantro, whether you're a hater or a lover,” he says.

The article goes on to say that crushing the cilantro in a pesto sauce may eliminate some soapy taste.

My brother loves them. I just dont like the taste. And the smell.  I'd rather use some cooked brussel sprouts in salads, just a bit. It actually goes pretty well if properly seasoned but I guess I;d better check for some proper ways of cooking it.
