And no, don't say it's delicious with cheese sauce. It's the cheese sauce you're enjoying. It's time we stopped letting this evil brassica take the credit for that dish.

No, beetroot claims that title.

MrsJayy Mon 12-Sep-16 11:44:19

I quite like it without cheese sauce its much better than Brocolli that tastes like hedge grin

I like it and beetroot, now broad beans... 😷

peppercold Mon 12-Sep-16 11:45:08

And I detest coriander alot.

MrsJayy Mon 12-Sep-16 11:45:36

Urgh broad beans that has to be the winner

I think you'll find that what your describing is mushrooms.
Tomatoes take the same title in the fruit category.

You're wrong, very wrong. It's like you've never eating the vile thing known as celery hmm.

I've never understood the issue with cauliflower, but then again I love sprouts as well....

YANBU at all...

Cauliflower is mostly just boring, although I would never choose to eat it. Mushrooms (although not technically a vegetable) and beetroot are good contenders.

Roasting it makes it taste nice - but roasting makes everything taste nice. Oil....lovely stuff.

Ginkypig Mon 12-Sep-16 11:48:15

Oh yes celery. It holds no relevant place on earth.

I love Brussels and broad beans

badtime Mon 12-Sep-16 11:48:36

I love broccoli, sprouts and broad beans.

Evil stuff.

Iwasjustabouttosaythat Mon 12-Sep-16 11:49:25

Oh yeah celery! And don't get me started on mint...

MrsPear Mon 12-Sep-16 11:49:26

Cauliflower is good as a curry with potato.

BuntyFigglesworthSpiffington Mon 12-Sep-16 11:49:30

I hated cauliflower too until I discovered how delicious it was when roasted.

RaeSkywalker Mon 12-Sep-16 11:50:47

I love cauliflower!

I really don't like celery. And radish. Blergh.

MrsJayy Mon 12-Sep-16 11:50:53

I like Brocolli stalks and leave the hedge

AdoraBell Mon 12-Sep-16 11:51:48

Cauliflower is nice with lemon juice squeezed over it.

aubergine though, there is no excuse for that envy <boak face>

RebeccaWithTheGoodHair Mon 12-Sep-16 11:51:58

runner beans - they can't be roasted, they absorb water and they are ALWAYS stringy. And my NDN give me a daily supply of the bastards (they also give me strawberries though!)

And no one mentions leeks? Slimy , snottery fucking things . And risotto? Pass me that bowl. I'll have all the cauliflower, and your other nasties if you solemnly promise I never have to eat those puke-making dirty evil things(oh, and parsley sauce) EVER again.

Yorkieheaven Mon 12-Sep-16 11:53:07

Oh no love it. Much nicer than broccoli.

We had leeks last night with a joint and rosemary/garlic tatties. Delicious.

Forgot how lovely leeks are grin

acasualobserver Mon 12-Sep-16 11:53:44

I can eat cauliflower but I don't see the point of it. It tastes like something grown to feed livestock. Beetroot tastes like earth - you might as well have a spoonful of soil.

Yorkieheaven Mon 12-Sep-16 11:53:59

mostly no leeks are so so tasty smile
