Have you ever felt 'stuck' in eating the same old favorites time after time? I was feeling that way, so started making an effort to try new foods.

So far this year I've tried (and liked):

Fresh beets
Kale
Quinoa
Millet
Amaranth
Field greens
Black-eyed-peas

And I've tried and didn't like:

Turnips
Rutabaga

Anyone else try something new you've liked and will use again?

Things I've tried that I would eat again: sushi, hummus, Greek yogurt
Things I won't eat again: brussels sprouts (I've tried them every way I can find and I just can't like them)

Pan fried in bacon grease with crumbled bacon and blue cheese?

I'm with Greytabbie on this..I've never met a brussels sprout I liked either--I think I'll take my bacon grease, crumbled bacon and bleu cheese straight, thank you very much...or over taters would be fine, too.

What is it with those BS's? They're just plain nasty. I like cabbage just fine, but those little mini-guys, yuck...

Roasted in the oven with olive oil, s/p, and then sprinkled with parmesan cheese is really good, too!
About the only thing I cant stand is liver and onions.....I will try almost anything once, and thats the only thing that stands out in my mind that gave me the Eeeeewwwwww thing.

I love brussels sprouts! Steamed, with a little butter on top, or halved and sauteed in olive oil and a smidge of seasoned salt. A squeeze of lemon juice is very good on them as well.

I recently bought some orzo for the first time and just made up my own recipe for it. I sauteed it in a skillet with olive oil and a very small amount of butter, then added some chicken stock and water. When it was just about done I tossed in a bunch of bite-sized pieces of fresh asparagus. Turned off the heat and let the asparagus steam in the mixture for a few minutes. It was fabulous!

I also recently tried cooking squid at home for the first time. Sauteed it in olive oil; sprinkled with a bit of Zatarain's blackening seasoning. It came out great. Can't wait to have it again.

(Gee, can you tell I like olive oil?)

My comfort zone is pretty wide but I know what you mean. Especially as someone who doesn't particularily enjoy cooking I can often end up cooking similar meals over and over again simply because of ease of preparation and familiarity.

On the other hand if someone else is cooking I will eat pretty much anything ! Literally. Like everyone lese I have things which are not exactly my cup of tea but if you bother ot make it for me then it seems fair to eat it...

i tried Kibbi last week at a Lebanese festival. the sides i had eaten before, but never the Kibbe. it was like a meatloaf sort of made with lamb and pine nuts. i would eat it again
also we had a Mankoushe (sort of like a pizza) which was very good.

I have to agree with brussels sprouts. I wanted to like them. I am a big veggie person and will eat any veggie at least once. Brussels sprouts is one that I will never try again. I tasted them for days, lol.

I didn't grow up eating lamb but I've since tried it and like it just okay.
