Yep marmalady and crewsk.... okra is wonderful. Southern food lovers of the world -- UNITE!

Zucchinini is prolific, so is dandelion greens, but what wonderful foods they are....!

I forgot to mention lima beans I love them too, especially the bit white ones in soup with a ham bone, and the baby ones, MMMMM

What marvellous "constitutions" you will find, just crossing an invisible "boundary" known as a "border"!

Must laugh, over the "likes" and "can't stands" views!

I like baby spinach, but I can't do the grownup kind. Endive; it looks wierd, it has a wierd mouth feel, and it tastes bad.

There are two vegetables that I want to like, and am trying: Mushrooms and green peppers. So many good-lookin recipes have them, you'd think they would taste a whole lot better than they do. Something about the texture of mushrooms that I can't abide, though I've gotten to where I can handle small amounts in a big pot of something. And I love prepping them. But I'll never like cooked whole green peppers.

And okra is horrible.

I too cannot do green peppers, so I substitute either yellow or orange, raw or cooked they do not bother me. Just smelling the green ones is nausiating to me. Mushrooms I absolutely love.

I love fried okra and hot pickled okra, neither of which are slimy. I hate collard greens and Swiss chard. Otherwise I pretty much love all vegetables (although some much more than others).

The vegetable I don't care for is acorn squash. I shy away from squash that I have to peel first before preparing. Never fails I either slice my finger or have to take a break when I clean it. Getting the peeling off is such an effort. Any other vegetable seems simples. Oh, shredding cabbage is another one that I don't like. Not for the taste but preparation.

I love veggies!
Mushrooms are the only one I don't care for.

However (catseye, are you listening?) one of my first posts was regarding this distaste for mushrooms, and some brilliant person here (I remember it was a guy) said to substitute sliced tofu, sauteed in beef broth for mushrooms in recipes. I've passed this on to so many people!

I think artichokes are the most heavenly food in the veggie kingdom!

Okay. How do you fix them? Everyone in store has told me to be careful of the choke? Can choke you? Is this right? I have never ate one and seem to be plentiful in the store.

Why do you peel the squash, I just cut them in half, remove seeds and sprinkle cut side with fresh pepper, turn cut side down on oiled parchment paper and roast until desired doneness, then scoop out and continue preparation. I do not like shredding cabbage either, usually cut in wedges and steam or roast.
