Thread: Favorite vegetable?

    Default Favorite vegetable?

    I may have asked this before but I'm going to ask it again. I have a hard
    time picking just one.

    I do love beans of all kinds. I could eat them every day but I don't
    because of the carbs. I eat them less often than I used to. But I do still
    eat them once a week. Exception being green and wax beans which I eat
    several times a day. Those are Angela's favorites by far so she wants them
    often.

    I also love beets but don't eat them often either. Nobody else in the house
    will eat them. Mostly I get them at salad bars but I do keep a few cans
    around just for me.

    Used to be peas were a favorite vegetable. I still really like them but
    since Angela is allergic to them I don't eat them often either. She did
    really like them so I don't like to eat them in front of her. But I do keep
    a few cans around. When I make tuna casserole I will put some on my portion
    and if my husband is home on his too. But again there is that carb count.

    Onions! I tend to keep several kinds and forms on-hand. I put them in
    darned near everything! I think not only do they taste good but they are
    good for you.

    Carrots. Not so much cooked although when my mom does with pot roast they
    are very good. I haven't a clue how she does them. She uses the large ones
    cut in sticks. She also puts in potatoes and onion soup mix. The carrots
    come out with the roast flavor but they are still partially crunchy. I also
    like the potatoes in there. Can't say the same about the roast. To me it
    is chewy and underdone, but perhaps that is why the carrots come out that
    way? I have tried using those and also the baby carrots since those are the
    favorite in this house. They always cook to mush even when I wait to put
    them in. And they never develop the deep flavor that my mom's do. So
    mostly we eat raw carrots here.

    Celery. So versatile! I add this to a variety of things and also eat it
    raw.

    Peppers. I add these to a lot of things too and I love them raw.

    Tomatoes. I love these both cooked and raw. Angela is finally deciding
    that she likes the raw ones. Still doesn't like them cooked. She was not
    pleased when I said I was getting two cases of organic diced from Costco.
    They have an upcoming coupon for buy one (case) get one free. I will donate
    one case to the food bank. I also found out they are in need of cat food.
    Yay! Have been looking for a place to donate that too. Ballerina and Jazzy
    are picky eaters and won't eat all of the Wellness brand that I stocked up
    on.

    Potatoes. Yes they are high in carbs. These are another thing I could eat
    every day. But I don't. I quit buying the large bags. When my husband was
    home we could usually use one up before it went bad. But now we can't. So
    I buy them a few at a time or a small bag of the little pearl ones. Those
    cook up quickly and they are very good. And they don't seem to spike me.

    So those are probably my favorites. What are yours?

    Broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, green beans, onions, sweet
    potato, tomatoes, peppers, celery, cucumber, radishes and I'll eat
    pretty much everything else Not bad for someone who only ate potato,
    canned peas and very ripe tomato slices between white bread - and eaten
    hours after it was made to let it go soggy, until I was 21....

    Thanks! I love radishes but rarely ever eat them because for some odd
    reason they give me nightmares.

    : I very much dislike squash.

    I, personally love it, but find mos of the , what we call winter
    squashes(hard shelled ones) I find are too caraby for me unless I eat a
    fairly small portion. spaghetti squash is an exception to this and I can
    eat what we call pumpkin in a custard version as a dessert without
    harm.

    the secret to the carrots in the roast is the temp at which you cook them i
    always put down a layer of onions then celery then carrots then plop on the
    roast, if on the stove bring it to the boil then turn down to just barely
    heating to keep it safe, if you don't disturb the carrots and cook slow they
    will stay firm and the meat will cook to tender.

    will be looking out for that cupon at costco, even with just the two of us,
    those won't go wasted, we both love tomatoes cooked, and dh uses them in
    sauce, sometimes for a cheat its prepared sauce with a can of diced tomatoes
    and some spices.

    as to the potatoes, when we get a bag i refused to pay the way to much price
    for individuals, we can throw out two thirds of the bag and be evin with the
    individuals, but having said that, when the end is coming to the potatoes, i
    steam them with the peels on, and they keep for a while longer in the frig,
    or i steam them and make into mashed and freez in reasonable, reasonable for
    health not want, and then we don't have to buy again until they are on sale.

    not to your original question... i love most vegetables so its easier to
    tell you what i don't like, bamboo shoots and things like that with a woody
    texture, taste is fine but texture not so much, cooked carrots if they are
    plain, they reek of a sour dish rag smell if not coated with something so i
    can't get them past my nose, and black eyed peas which i have told of
    before... pretty much everything else tastes good to me raw or cooked, and
    at most is not wonderful but generally edible, Lee
