Raw vs Cooked Vegetables

Are there any vegetables that you like raw, but won't eat if they are cooked or vice versa?

For me, I love raw carrots, but I really do not like them cooked. When I was a kid I would not eat them cooked at all, but now as an adult I can deal with them, but I really prefer them raw.

I hate raw onions but love them cooked. That's about the only thing I can think of right now.

For me it's cauliflower and broccoli. I can eat them off a plate of crudites, but never cooked. I don't care how much cheese you pour over them first.

Edited:
GB, have you ever tried boiling carrots in orange juice instead of water? That's how I got my daughter to eat them.

Mudbug, no I have not tried that. I will have to give it a shot. I am willing to try anything (well most things) once :)

What a good question--and I'm glad I'm not alone!

I only can eat carrots raw.

On the other hand, I only like broccoli, onions, celery when they're cooked. Broccoli, when cooked properly (tender crisp, not mushy) is definitely my favorite vegetable.

I like them all raw or cooked including string beans, mushrooms and onion. I will eat raw oinions only in small doses tho, if I need raw onions I prefer to use shallots.

ditto on everything Topaz said, except for mushrooms - they're the only veggie I don't love. (radishes are a close second)

fresh peas - ok, they're fine cooked but they're so good raw they never make it into the pot

I don't like cooked carrots but raw ones are okay. I love brocolli both ways but prefer it raw rather than cooked.
