NOT slimey! No, no, no!

You're not cooking them properly Half Baked: olive oil and fry the dickens out of them until they're nicely browned and even a bit crunchy. Nothing slimey about them at that point, I swear.

Beets? Sliced, mixed together with the greens, olive oil and vinegar and crushed garlic ... oh yum.

Racking my brain to come up with a veggie I don't like ...

Years ago, foodwriter Leslie Land, in her book "The New England Epicure," devoted a whole chapter to "Hating Rutabaga!" I howled my way through the entire chapter!
Quite simply: I'd kill to be able to get ahold of rutabega.

Mashed with potatoes, about half/half, cream ... butter ... salt & pepper. Heaven.

The waxy crap? Peel it and chuck it.

Hi Ayrton, if you're that keen, there's got to be a way to get hold of some. Maybe you could even grow some! Seeds are easy to buy online. I used to think you couldn't get seeds posted abroad from the UK but you can. Thompson & Morgan seeds have two types on offer. Happy chomping.

Peas unless they are dried and made into a soup.

I love swede (aka rutabaga) - we use it a lot in Scotland... Probably cos it's one of the few veggies that grow locally in our winter season and many of our traditional recipes pre-date (often by hundreds of years!) the wholesale air transportation of rare summer veggies in the middle of winter.

I have to say it's a tie between carrots and peas for me

Well, there really isn't a vegetable I can think of that I don't like--I like all of 'em! I'm definitely NOT a picky eater--love ALL fruits too except I can say that durian fruit isn't the greatest actually!

I like all of the veggies way more than meat except turnips. I do not like them at all.
