Broccoli rabe. Bitter, bitter, bitter. And I keep trying it because I'm half Italian and I'm supposed to like it, but I keep hating it. I do like broccoli and broccolini, though.

Don't like turnips, either. Other than those, I love veggies.

if it's made the right way it's very good.  i get it at a place that makes with with alot of garlic and broth, sausage over a pasta.  sprinkle some good cheese over the top and it's good.

That's what I'm saying. I've had it every which way you can make it. I've never liked it.  fists crying.gif

I love 'scarole and beans. My dad makes it great. Yum.

With any veggie like that, sauteed with just garlic and olive oil is all you need. If it doesn't taste good made like that then fuhgeddaboutit.

Are you talking canned beets, or fresh? To me, fresh beets are sweet and yummy. Canned beets taste horrible.

In fact, I can't think of a single canned veggie that tastes good.

Melt some cheese on them or
Pour some turkey gravy on 'em.
Much better  tongue.gif

or rub them with olive oil, spinkle with kosher salt and pepper, and roast the hell out of em.   biggrin.gif

Roasted they're damn good.

I love most all vegetables except celery...and maybe beets: they taste like dirt to me.

My mom makes a whole roasted veggie mix -- potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, brussels sprouts, with some onions, garlic and olive oil. The sprouts are my favorite part. They take on a whole different flavor when roasted. Yum.

Put a little vinegar in the water, it takes the bitterness out.

As for me, the one I can't stand is okra.
I'll eat any other veggie.

Beets
Radishes
Celery (is that even a vegetable?)
Carrots (I do like steamed baby carrots, however)
Turnip greens/collard greens

And of course, the one that started the thread, brussels sprouts.  Think all the worst attributes of cabbage, magnified x100 and crammed into a smaller package.

I LOVE onions - raw, caramelized, you name it - but don't eat them. There's something about them that takes days to leave my system.  I can't get the taste out of my mouth no matter how many times I brush my teeth.  I've even tried DRINKING mouthwash to get it to go away.  Sometimes I get tempted to order onion rings and then I think, "do I really want to taste them for the next 48 hours?"
