Cooked spinach or any green leafy thing that gets slimy like okra; green peppers do not like me, but orange and yellow are great. Do nto like zucchini as it is so bland, merliton (chaoyte) because it needs too much work to make it taste good.

I hate okra! I made a huge batch of gumbo for my dad's birthday and at his request I added quite a bit of okra. I was gagging the entire time that I was cooking, couldn't get past the mucous-like slime. :x Don't care for beets but I'm okay with just about anything else! :D

I like pickled beets. My aunt makes raspberry jello, and puts jullienne picked beets and pineapple in it and makes a horseraddish-sourcream-mayo sauce for it that is devine. I will make a pickled beet lover out of you.

In my own opinion, zucchini is a weed...I know I have eaten it, and not complained to much, but it is something that grows better than a dandelion, and results in huge crops that we apparently cannot ship out to feed the Third World!

Okra is the (something not nice) brother of Zucchini...fortunately, we don't see great quantities of it in Canada, and when caused to add it to a recipe, can de-core it of the squishy insides, and limit the quantity by "simple sanity"...

Likewise we are not "inflicted" by the "popular growth" of Lima Beans here...and many of us have learned to like beets, either the top "greens" or bottom "bulbs", even if the latter tend to travel like "grease" through my particular "goose"...

Amen marmalady!! I love okra, boiled, fried, pickled, you name it, I'll eat it!!

As far as what I hate, raw onions, raw celery, beets, bell peppers, olives(green & black), sour kraut, & sweet peas(I have to fix them for the rest of the family though).

Raw onions, cabbage, and while I love the taste of peppers they don't love me so I avoid them.
