I have always HATED I mean REALLY HATED any type of peppers and onions. Now that I'm vegetarian, it seems that they are in EVERY recipe I look at. Frankly, its a bit annoying lol. I know they can supply a lot of flavor, but I just never acquired the taste for them. Blech!

Same. I do LOVE cooked onions, but hate raw ones. I can't stand any kind of pepper. It's very common to see peppers replace meat in restaurants. Peppers are in fajitas, stir frys, many premade meals, and in so many other places. I've found ways around them.



Keep trying onions, especially cooked ones because they're nothing like raw ones.

Back when I was first flirting with veganism I bought some fake cheese: pepper jack rice cheese. It was disgusting. And then I read the ingredients... it had casein in it!

Tofu and eggplant seem to have a similar texture to me, and I don't like either of them. Texture, texture, texture... why my tongue cares so much I'll never know. In my pre-veg days I went years without experiencing the wonderfulness that is avocado because my first experience had been cubed in a salad. Totally unexpected to have this slimy stuff suddenly in my mouth!



I actually am far less picky now and eat a far wider range of foods. I still think black olvies are nasty, just like I always did, but do to my vegetarian attitude of trying so many new things, I realized Kalamata is sooo not the same thing, and omG how yummy!



Sorry, off topic.



Hates since becoming veggie...



Tofu

eggplant

veggie dogs



and, not a hate, but I'm pre-judging. So scared to try the veggie cheeses, they just seem terrible. and the ones that actually looked like cheese had cassein. I will try it though, and soon!

Try baked or fried firm tofu, it is kind of like a french fry in texture, very little squishiness about it.

Thanks! A local shop makes these fried tofu nuggets and patties that are really good. Not the patties, they were still too ew for me, but the nuggets were yum. The last I had them was when I was still omni and thought they were similar to, and tasted better than, popcorn chicken. But I realized it was the copious amounts of breading and carmelization (I think), and decided this could not possibly be good for me! But yes, good point, it is doable, when done right! I also very much like tempeh, and it pleases me to know it's actually less processed than tofu and higher in nutritional values. I don't much mind skipping the tofu when I can get so much pleasure out of other soy products. Like Edamame mmmmm.

I'm sure this has been said before, but I can't stand mushrooms. I know that they are so healthy and a nice hearty substitute for meat, but I just can't do it! I'll keep trying, though, my taste buds have changed before, I'm sure that they will change again.



And I never liked tempeh until I tried grain tempeh. The soy just didn't do it for me, but I will try that again in the future also.

I can't think of anything that I've tried after going veg*n that I've really hated. I've always hated the taste of cilantro. It's simply terrible. Whenever I prepared Mexican cuisine in the past, I used parsley instead. I remember my parents went shopping years ago for parsley and accidently brought home cilantro. :X I just can't like the flavor of cilantro. Not only does it stink to me, but it tastes like soap and utter yuckiness.

^^ I agree with the cilantro! When I was younger I was invited to some church youth group, where they were eating foods that had to do with the last supper or something. They served us some cilantro and salt water......feeling inclined I tried it...

I havent been able to eat it since and finding salsa while dining out that doesnt have it is tough.

Coconut anything, like coconut milk in curries(why is there almost always coconut milk in curries?). I've tried so many times to like it, but I can never finish anything that has it.

That's interesting, really. I love Vanilla Silk (and its chai/latte blend), but I really don't like Silk's Chocolate Soy Milk. Yeck....



I've eaten Vanilla Soy in cereal and have drunk it straight. I've even used regular soy in making cakes and breads.

I don't like seitan.



Didn't like tofu, but I got used to it and got to like it rather quickly.

I use soy milk instead of coconut in curries. You might try that. It's not the same, but I think it tastes pretty good.

I have yet to find a cheese substitute that doesn't remind me of the flavor of vomit. The only reason I've bothered looking is because I have an omni fiance who would give veg*n a chance if there was a decent cheese substitute.



Celery, mushrooms, melons of any kind and most nuts top my list of foods I didn't even like before becoming veg.

I never could develop much of a taste for hummus. At first I thought it was the brand - I'd buy it at Trader Joe's - and thought it was too grainy and bland tasting. But then when I tried other brands, I decided it was the thing itself and not just the brand I didn't care for.



I also don't like tofu that much. I don't cook with it at home, but I'll eat it when I'm out somewhere and that's my main or only choice. I guess it depends on HOW it's cooked.

Do you mean vegan? Because your fiance could be a vegetarian and eat all the cheese he wants... "veg*n" is including both, but in this case that wouldn't make sense

I don't like store-bought hummus. I've tried Athenos (yuck) and a couple other brands and they all seem kind of bland to me. But I love what I make at home and when I order it in restaurants.
