Alrighty, so many times there's lots of talk about favorites. What about things that make you go, yuck?

I hate peppers. Yes, I admit it & damn proud of it. I don't care what color, kind, brand, or whatever, I think they have an awful taste w/ an even worse smell that is totally overbearing.

So what vegetable or fruit (is that even possible?) do you despise?

tomatos. Blah. I'm okay with maraniara sauce and tomato soup and things like that but I can't handle tomato chunks.

Eggplant. I find them repulsive, even whirled up in baba ganush.

spicy foods.



Why oh why do people think that veg*ns all love spicy foods? Damn fool, you make the foods innacessible just because you've burnt away your taste buds! :angry:

I've tried to like peppers and just...can't. Squash and tomatoes are especially offensive to me.

I don't have one. I used to hate olives, and it didn't matter what kind they were, I would gag on them. But over the past few months I have developed a taste for them. I still don't pop a whole one into my mouth (ugh), but I make tapenade and include them in salads or on pizza or in sandwiches.

Coconut. If I accidently eat something with coconut, I have to spit it out.

It's so horrid. Even the smell of it in suntan lotion makes me nauseous.

I agree about coconut. It's the texture that I find repulsive, even on German chocolate cake.

I also dislike coconut in my desserts but love pina coladas or the flavor in my rum drinks.

Brussels sprouts. Despite my sister's insistence that they can be made edible, I say NO! NO! NO! to Brussels sprouts.

Also Lima beans.

OMG! I thought I was the only one! I was raised by a mother who cannot handle spicy food, so I never had it growing up, and I can't handle spicy food, either. Almost EVERYTHING on restaurant menus, almost EVERYTHING I buy in the store is too spicy for me. I ALWAYS have to ask restaurants to make my order as mild as possible.

Oh, I really hate peas also. If I eat one of those vegan pot pies from Amy's, I'll end up with a little pile of peas on my plate.

gotta agree with you on celery.



I'll eat it if I have to, but tend to leave it out of recipies, since they only call for 1 or 2 stalks and the rest rots in the veggie bin.



Also, fresh cilantro. It will make me queasy. Haven't been able to eat it since I bought a black bean burrito that tried to use it as an alternative to lettuce.

ewwwww... ick!



I like cilantro but not as an alternative to lettuce. That's just.... eww.



I can't handle black eyed peas, bell pepper (I can sorta stand orange and red, but that's about it), just about all melons, mango and anything that tastes of licorice like star anise or fennel.



All this gag-food talk is making me want to brush my teeth with boiling bleach right now....

Mushrooms...I think it's the slimyness. The smell of portobellos is really disgusting also.



Leafy greens...I am very sensitive to bitter tastes. I can eat romaine and iceberg lettuce, and that's about the only leafy green thing that doesn't make me gag.

coconut and butternut squash, though i eat thai curries with coconut milk and soup blended with butternut squash. avocados when plain, too, yet i love sufficiently limey guacamole. most nuts. cooked carrots and cooked beets.

Tomatoes in salad or the chunks of tomato in a tomato sauce. I always pick them out.



Olives. Yuck.



Lima beans.



Canned peas and canned green beans (fresh or frozen ones that aren't cooked to mush are quite tasty, though).



Shiitake mushrooms. It's the texture that kills it for me.

another vote for cilantro. Most foods I simply dislike (raw tomato, celery), I can still force myself to tolerate them for the nutrition, etc.. but the if there's the tiniest bit of cilantro in anything, it's all I can taste and I just can't eat it. Totally annihilates every other flavor, and tastes like chemicals or plastic to me. yick.. gives me the chills just thinking about it. This problem has created for me a terribly distressing love/hate relationship with Indian food.
