Tempe.



I love tofu though.

All you hummus and baba ganouj haters are crazy. And to you eggplant haters, I don't like you much either! What did I ever do to you?



That being said, there are a few veggies I never liked, but the only foods I've found I didn't like after going veg are most fake meats and fake cheeses. Vegan gourmet cheese is ok, but still not great.

Eggplant, with mushrooms a close second. I can eat mushrooms, though, if they're well disguised.



Whoever it was upthread who said they had tofu in their refrigerator for a few weeks - it should have a freshness date on it which should be reliable if you haven't opened the package. But in general it's best to use it up pretty quickly.

I hate all obvious proteins (like tofu, tempeh and fake meats) I will eat tofu occasionally when I feel like I'm lacking, but I don't really enjoy it unless its fried or heavily marinated. And then masked amongst other strong flavors.

I try to eat a diet that is natural as possible.

I've never been a fan either. I grew up on mustard. I do like Vegenaise with my Wham sandwich though

I'd have to agree about tabouli. I think it calls for mint, which makes it taste like toothpaste to me. Also, someone suggested eating nori by itself as a snack. . . Tastes like dehydrated fish paste to me.



Fake meats/processed stuff are rather gross. Once in a while, I eat Smart Dogs on the grill or treat myself to a fake processed cheese sandwich.



Everything else, I pretty much love. I'm a HUGE fan of tofu and all veggies, with the exception of raw onions.

Vegan cheese, any brand. I think I've tried them all.



I don't like raisins, eggplant, olives or undisguised mushrooms either, but then I never did.

Lentils. I tried lentil soup many, many years before becoming veg. I ran across a lentil salad at whole foods and thought I'd give them another try. Nope. Don't like them. I guess I only have 18 more tries to go......

Vegreenmom, I bravely volunteer to eat your share of yeast. Starting now, on my popcorn.



Tofurky. I wish I liked it; it's a convenient full meal deal and I'm into that cranberry stuffing. But no. It mimics cheap, scary overprocessed turkey foods made with too much salt.

I'm surprised so many people don't like celery. I've become obsessed with Creole and Cajun cooking since going veg. Celery, bell pepper and onion are the holy trinity.



In defense of hummus... the taste really depends on the level of garlic and how the garlic was prepared. If there is more than 1 raw minced clove, it can taste like acid. On the other hand, Henry's used to sell a powdered (just add water) hummus that, I swear, tasted like lemon cookie dough. It was made with garbanzo flour, lemon, and a minimal amount of garlic powder that wasn't even noticeable.

most "fake meats"



Why is the natural assumption that vegetarians don't want to eat meat but want their meat substitute to look and taste as close to meat as possible?

^haha...you guys are too funny. I enjoy nori but on a limited basis. After eating too much of it, you realize you're eating algae.



I absolutely despise sweet peas (unless they are frozen and cooked in fried rice). Not a fan of celery either. Sorry Mojo.

I wouldn't say it's a natural assumption. It's definately a great way to convert to vegetarianism without feeling deprived though.

Hahaha um... I love almost all of these "icky" foods.



One thing I *don't* like- olives. Ew. Ewwwwww. Basically, though, I'll eat anything vegan. I'm not picky at all.

Tempeh. Maybe I just haven't tasted really well-prepared tempeh, but I find it so gummy and gross. Why not just eat yummy delicious tofu?



I also hate cucumbers, green peppers, cilantro, and fennel, but I hated those before I went veg*an. Oh, and arugula.

I simply cannot countenance canteloupe. I try it about once every year, but I always go back to no canteloupe.



I have tried putting vanilla ice cream on it, whipped cream, any number of raw nut creams... but there is no way canteloupe will go down easily. I ate a canteloupe ball on August 4th, so I am clear for the next year.

It's seaweed, not algae. And who eats a sheet of nori? That's like saying, "ew, I hate flour because once I ate a cup of it and it was gross."



I think the only thing that I didn't like after going veg was falafel. I had it a few times, in different ways, and it sucked every time. Everything else I don't like (which isn't much) I'd tried before going veg.

My daughter eats nori sheets as a snack. Really. She likes lots of foods most people think aren't tasty though, like Brussels sprouts. Nori's also eaten by a lot of Asian cultures as a snack (it's sold in little snack packets and such even, at Asian markets). Lots of raw foodies like it that way too. My kid won't choose it over an Uncle Eddie's cookie on most occasions, mind you, but I spend about $50 every 3 months on raw, organic (vegan) nori for her. (It's so expensive because of the harvesting methods;They ensure that it is fish and sea creature-free, unlike most nori).

Wow! I'm surprised so many people here don't like hummus!



The foods that I don't like since I've gone veg are soy hot dogs (I didn't like meat hot dogs either) and soy cheese.
