Hey, if it makes you feel any better, I physically cannot eat grapefruit, evidentally I'd get really sick if I did. I wasn't aware of this until I was 12. Good to kknow, mom. Thank-you for telling me when I'm way past the age of electing what I eat.

Aristede:book: 

I still miss blue cheese apple and walnut salads! I sub olives, or sometimes I'll marinate firm tofu in miso which is good.

 

I hate winter squash. So sick of all recipes with butternut or acorn squash. Most of all the butternut squash soups! Blurgh!

And of course, avocados and cilantro

Not sure if I've mentioned feta cheese in this thread yet. I call it fetid cheese. That stuff is gross.

Don't know if I've posted this one already, but raw zucchini! I don't even like it all that much when it's cooked, but when it's raw?! I refuse to eat it. Ick, ick, ick.


I'm also not a fan of ketchup (I'm a mustard person through and through), store bought mayonnaise (homemade is much better), raw tomatoes, and seitan.

That said, as far as veggies go about the only ones I wont eat are brussels sprouts, though I haven't tried cooking them myself yet. I hated them growing up. Then again I hated asparagus growing up and found out my parents didn't know how to cook it worth a crud so yeah...

 

I like Heinz ketchup. Growing up, I refused to eat any ketchup, but as I've gotten older, I find I like it more (especially as part of my secret barbecue sauce). Now, I will say that I like the Heinz natural more since it's made with real sugar (as opposed to high fructose corn syrup), though I'd like it more if it was a little less sweet. I've never made my own ketchup, but perhaps I should consider it.

 

As for Brussels sprouts... erg.... I just don't like them and I know how to cook a veggie. As you found out, most people really overcook asparagus. I prefer my spears to still be a bit toothsome and not mushy.

Yellow Mustard, the devils food.

 

Pickles, except Bread and Butter, I like those.

 

Raw tomatoes, cooked is awesome.

 

Other than that, if it is a fruit, vegetable, legume or grain, I will eat it.

 

 

 

Fresh brussel sprouts oven roasted with garlic and onion, or sauteed and then toasted walnuts, cranraisins and honey or agave added, both are phenomenal.

The only food I absolutely will not can not eat is brussels sprouts. Ugh. Maybe I just haven't had them cooked right, but with so many delicious foods in the world, I think I'll take my chances and just pass on those. 

 

Besides that, if I have the option to be picky I usually avoid:

 

Citrus fruits, especially lemon (except my beloved limes)

Bell pepper

Crunchy foods

Raw apples

Corn (unless it is fresh, local corn, or corn frozen from the same)

Store-bought bread (the fresh-baked stuff is fine - it's a texture thing)

Russet potatoes

Peanuts

Non-silken tofu

 

I'll eat all of those if they are served to me, but I really don't usually enjoy them. I do cook with bell pepper a lot because my boyfriend loves them though.

Marinara Sauce.
Hate it!!!  I can do fresh tomatoes, canned/boxed tomatoes, or sauces that have tomato sauce as a base (like vodka sauce)...but not marinara.  It just tastes so gross to me!  Bleh Bleh Bleh...no thank you!

Peppers and Onions.
This one depends on how they're cooked.  I can do some finely chopped onions (especially shallots) that are sauteed down to almost nothing.  I can do onion powder.  I can also do peppers that are finely chopped and cooked "down to nothing."  If I have to bite into a chunk...I just can't.  Gah so gross.  I loathe onion rings with a passion.

Seaweed.
Other than using kelp flakes *sparingly* in my mock tuna salad...I can't do seaweed.  It tastes too fishy.  Roasted seaweed snacks are the worst because once they hit my saliva they get all gooey.  I have literally gagged and almost puked trying to eat them.

 

I think other than that I'm pretty open to just about everything!

Egg plant

Is the best plant

Egg is life

And eggplant is plant life (with egg)

The things I hate are mainly condiments.  I hate ketchup, mayonnaise, and tomato soup (eww).

Fromper I'm not a huge fan of eggplant, but I don't hate it. It's not something I'd go out of my way to eat, but when it's the only veg option on the menu, I'll take it.

Not me- I only like them almost mushy with some garlic oil.

boiled, not roasted

Bean - I've had eggplant in a lot of ways. It's the taste of it more than anything, but the texture is yucky too.

 

And yeah, brussels/gravy is delicious. With lots of pepper.

I ADORE brussels sprouts though. My flatmates used to laugh as during college, occasionally (basically if I was low on cash) I'd eat a plate of brussels sprouts covered in gravy for dinner. Still could.

Have you tried fried egg plant? Eggplant is tricky to cook. Few things are as horrid as mushy eggplant.

Brussels sprouts and gravy sounds delicious.

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.

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

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.

Huckleberry cilantro

cooked bell peppers
kale, I imagine noxious weeds would taste similarly
rhubarb
ginger
horseradish

Fromper 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.

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!
