I can't think of a vegetable that I don't like if it is cooked properly and/or not canned. I can even enjoy some "tinned" veges if they are not dumped into a pan and boiled for another 20-30 minutes!

Lima beans, often (depends on the dish) cooked cabbage and bamboo (it's not so much the taste, but the woody texture - I usually pick them out of Chinese food). Actually I don't much like the texture of celery either, but enjoy the taste a lot. But all in all I just adore veggies! I thank my mom that she feed us so many from an early age onward, it really instilled a love of vegetables in me.

Try some celery root Piccolina, the taste is great, with a meaty texture instead of stringy and cruncy..I made some chicken salad with it, along with green onion, almonds, a light squeeze of lemon juice, mayo..We put into phylo cups and the rest we used for tasted sandwiches the next day..Yummy and I plan to put the celery root into some oil packed imported tuna..Should be good that way too.

I like just about all veggies, althought okra, really makes me gag..But if it's battered and fried, I'll eat it..The rest, I eat anytime...I love summer when I can go out in the back and pick fresh sweet white corn, bring it in to a boiling pot and cook and eat.Nothing better..Veggies, dress em up or down, they are wonderful

I have never been able to choke down beets. Otherwise, I have found that many of the veggies that I would not eat as a child are now some of my favs. And I do like very many veggies!!!

can't think of one I don't like; but if there is one, cooking it with bacon usually makes it quite nice thanks.

"I love all veggies" I thought to myself, before I read everyone's comments - I guess out of sight out of mind - so here it goes: all beans but green beans, collard greens, turnips, rhubarb, sauerkraut, cabbage, okra, canned or frozen spinach or aspargus (love the fresh though!), sweet potatoes and cooked peas. And I thought my son was picky with the veggies - I need to keep quiet when it comes to his eating .
