Vegetables

No, seriously. The topic of this post is vegetables.

I need to eat more of them. And I am an abominably picky eater who's got no (0, zero, zip, zilch, nada) interest in trying to make peace with foods I already know I don't like. I am a grown-ass tax paying adult, and I know what I do and do not want to eat.* But I do need new veggie recipes. Especially recipes that take less than 10 minutes to prepare, or can be prepped in big batches and reheated. If you've got good recipes for anything on my Yes list, I'd love to know about them:

YES

Spinach
Chard
Kale (limited)

Beet greens
Lettuce
Mustard greens
Lettuce (all kinds)
Salad greens (arugula, cress, endive, raddichio, etc)
Cabbage (red, green, napa)
Broccoli
Potatoes
Mushrooms
Carrots (raw only)
Garlic
Tomatoes (in season only)
Basil
Cucumber
Artichoke
Asparagus


NO
Squash (Yes, pumpkin too. And spaghetti. And zucchini. Every. Single. Variety.)
Yams
Sweet potatoes
Peas (English and sugar snap)
Celery (raw and cooked)
Turnips
Parsnips
Rutabagas
Beets (all colors)
Cauliflower
Bell peppers (all colors)
Eggplant
Sprouts (bean, pea, alfalfa, pretty much all others)
Avocado
Lentils (most preparations)
Radish
Jicama
Brussels sprouts
Soybeans

MAKES ME PHYSICALLY ILL
Onions (red, yellow, white, green)
Leeks
Shallots
Chives



* Anyone who comments on this post to try to talk me into eating something on the NO or MAKES ME ILL lists will not be unfriended. Instead, I will tag you in a reply containing a paragraph describing what the vegetable you're hawking tastes like to me. Expect me to put vivid verbs and intense imagery into it. Do it twice, and I may bust into poetry.
