(trying to balance things up)
i don't like vegetables very much at all and have to reeeally force myself to eat them. Sign of an immature palate probably, but I did once only eat carrots and wotsits for nearly a year. so it has probably skewed my thinking somewhat (although I still love wotsists, and I don't mind carrots actually if they are slow roasted or glazed or raw. hmm, am talking through a hole in my erse.)
there's an 's' and a 'w' between e and a, did you really miss by that much?
is how people from glasgow comically say ARSE.
did you have a misunderstanding of how sun tans work?
Like that kid who drank too much Sunny D
Seriously - who the fuck likes cauliflower unless it's got a rake of cheese on it? And even then it just ruins perfectly good cheese.
Butternut Squash - people who say they like this are lying. Fact.
Artichokes - beyond horrible. Whoever decided to introduce them to pizzas should die (if they haven't already)
Kale - since when did this get popular? And in crisp form too? Tastes like something I just dug out of my arse.
Sprouts - are these not scientifically proven to actually be fucking disgusting?
take out kale and you've got a pretty strong top 5 there
But it's nice with other stuff, it's a general mid-table veg that people thinks better than it is. It's the Southampton of the veg world.
Kale crisps taste and look like something a dealer has thrown away because he couldn't sell it. Awful.
2 years ago you could buy a kilo of it in Sainsbury's for about 20p. Now you can even get organic kale and whatnot. Fucking baffling.
It's alright in a stew or summat if you want some cheap, earthy green in there. But having a massive clump of it on a plate? Must be fucking mad...
even then it is pretty shit. Rather have spinach or chard any day.
too many people banging on about how good Kale is. Don't get it. It's ok at best
'Kale again? We get it: you're white.'
Otherwise it was fairly missable. Bunk from The Wire doing karaoke as the black Kenny Rogers was good though.
Even if you cook them in a fancy way
Oh you want four more
I actually like these vegetables but I guess they come last in preference
Lettuce (meh), runner beans (get a bit stringy), turnip and swede (fine but boring)
although cauliflower rice is alright. don't understand how that works.
i'll eat 'em, but I don't like 'em
It might not technically be a vegetable but it's horrible so it's on the list (probably applies to most of these)
Red maybe gets a reprieve but yukk
they're a waste of time.
Can't think of a 5th
You knows it
FUCKING BROAD BEANS! Awful.
I've only ever had them when someone else has cooked, then I've eaten one, which confirmed to me they're still horrendous.
don't wish to sound patronising niki (I do really)
Get a cold meze platter or something similar - guaranteed to be some kind of broad bean salad type thing on there. Eat it. The realise you're wrong.
I don't mind the skin myself, but the root of most broad bean angst is owing to the skin not being removed. It is a fiddly business after all.
They make my teeth squeak and I will honestly lose my appetite and not be able to eat for days if you make me eat one.
are a bit cack
anywhere near my bottom, your honour.
I guess parsnips are a bit meh.
but celery is one of them. Not nice, it even lingers if it is an ingredient in things.
Sprouts are OK, but can be bitter. I have one at Christmas and that is it for me. They are basically all the farty, off flavours of a whole cabbage condensed into a single mouthful.
Broad beans in their skins can be horrific. Popping them out of their skins is a pain in the arse and after all that effort they still aren't as nice as any other bean, they basically become shit versions of soya beans.
Boiled, boring carrots. Scarred as a kid with so many overcooked vegetables. I used to ask for them raw.
That's it really. I used to hate loads, but I will even eat turnips these days.
celery is for soup bases and nothing else, shit vegetable
I don't even really see the point in celery as the base of a soup / risotto.
Fractal cauliflower! Awesome to look at, but it's a shame to cook or eat because you lose the bizarreness of its appearance. Seems like a waste. Although it is nicer than regular cauliflower, broccoli is nicer than either.
Artichokes are okay flavour-wise, but such a pain in the bum to eat. Only about 20% of the whole thing is edible, it's hardly worth it.
Kale is just meh.
Butternut squash is an okay soup ingredient, but not really good for much else.
Green bell peppers are inferior to every other kind - more bitter, less fun. It's like peppers trying to be greens, it's pointless.
