    With the garden season here and lots of fresh produce hitting the stands what is the one veggie that you simply refuse to eat? I can't stand Zucchini in and way, shape or form. It makes me gag if I try eating it no matter how it is prepared. I don't know what it is about Zucchini but all I have to do is find a piece in soup I'm eating and out goes the soup. Ick! (shivers) I can't eat oatmeal either. I have strong aversions to these 2 foods. How about you? What can't you bring yourself eat?

    Send it all this way. I love mousaka! As far as what I can't stand- Okra and hominey. Okra is tolerable in gumbo, but nearly inedible in any other format. They used to serve yellow hominey in the College cafeteria. I tried it once- it was like gnawing on wax. There was absolutely no taste whatsoever. I am not sure un-milled hominey is meant for human consumption. I can eat grits all day long, but either mill the hominey, or feed it to the hogs, because I don't want anything to do with it.

    Zuchinni is good raw-that's the only way I'll eat it. Same for crookneck squash and turnips.

    I'll only eat cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower if they are raw or very lightly steamed (still crunchy)

    I will not eat the following no matter how they are prepared:
    Asparagus
    Okra
    Egg Plant
    Green Peppers
    Kholrabi

    What is wrong with you people---not liking Okra--LOL. That is some Good stuff------fried, breaded then deep fried, steamed, boiled and in soup------anyway but green. Try this-----get some fresh cut okra--young tender pods--don't let it get long pods, it gets tough------wash, slice into 1/2" long wheel pieces, put into a lightly oiled or sprayed frying pan---cook on a med. heat, keep stirring every minute or so-----salt and pepper------cook till done, probably 20 minutes plus-------The trick is slow fried not high heated fried. If you can't eat it cooked like this------Just forget Okra and send me your fresh cut okra--LOL. I will eat it for you. I have about 250ft row of okra, just started coming in. Yum Yum--I will be busy eating OKRA--LOL. Randy

    I'm with the Okra crowd ... Ugh. Slimy vegetable. But, I'll be more then happy to take everybody else's eggplant.

    I think they are called water chestnuts in chinese cookery....they are gritty in texture :p

    I'm not sure I've ever had okra....but I like most everything else :) and butter and sour cream will improve any vegetable.

    Celery. Such a nasty little creature. I can tolerate it in soup or something but that is it. Okra is ok if it is deep fried until almost burnt.
    Not really a veggie but I can't stand raw tomatoes. I love them cooked, stewed, canned, in a sauce but never raw.
