That's hard, because we try for variety.

1. onions
2. carrots
3. celery

(those because they are added to lots of recipes)

4. Broccoli
5. Cauliflower

(because the first three are in everything and not really a side)

6. Mushrooms
7. cabbages
8. Arugula/lettuce/spinach

I dislike most veggies, have allergic reactions to the rest & tend to eat them raw & alone (like a red/yellow/orange pepper sprinkled with Kosher salt... green make me lose lunch, literally), if I have to eat them. I don't like overwhelmingly mixed veggie salads (just too many ingredients), but do like freshly juiced, mixed veggies, however... sadly my very pricey juicer had to be left behind last move... in addition, it is quite $$$ to buy enough to make a couple of glasses of juice, so that's the end of juicing.

When I feel I need a boost of vitamins, I'll eat very well cooked green beans, only as I can get giant bags of organic beans for under $5. Eat them, hate them, they have to be pan sauteed in butter to almost black for me to stomach them. The smell of most cooked veggies, especially sulfuric horrors, such broccoli & brussel sprouts, actually make me wretch.

I like corn (but isn't that a grain?), but rarely eat it given the GMO talk & my indecision on if it's healthy or not. Still, I don't crave or miss it.

Eat cooked most often? Fresh, organic green beans.

Like? Kind of, sort of potatoes, but never eat them due to odd reactions & they just don't taste the same to me, as they did years ago. And, I love pickled beets, but, I get a headache when eating vinegar, onions or garlic, so my menu shrinks yearly.

I can happily do without them all.

I actually forgot one that we've been doing A LOT since I only 'discovered' it a few months ago: roasted red cabbage. Seriously delicious.

Ooooh! Added to my "to-do" list. There's a ton of recipes on the interwebz. How do you make yours? With vinaigrette or no? Etc., etc., etc.?

I also eat a lot of raw spinach.
How the hell did I forget about mushrooms? Do they count as a veggie? They're my favorite! Push the carrots out of the way!

Only FIVE? It also really depend upon the season. I like to eat in season.



My five favorite vegetables are - WINTER



1. Brussels sprouts
2. beets

3. cauliflower

4. cabbage
5. turnips



SPRING and SUMMER

1. asparagus

2. Summer squash
3. spinach
4. green beens

5. baby peas (but they actually are a legume.



ALL YEAR VEGETABLES and "VEGETABLES" that are really "something else" -



1. tomatoes (really a fruit - great in Summer)

2. Sweet corn on the cob - not a vegetable, but I love it in Summer and early Fall.
3. cucumbers
4. onions
5. broccoli



potatoes, squash, yams, leeks,all kinds of greens - Kale, Collard, Mustard and more,



,....so, I am very bad at this. I am not sure that there is ANY vergetable I hate. I also love Okra when prepared well.
