I eat lots of the following

Cauliflower
Broccoli
Turnip
Spinach
Courgette - love them char grilled on the george forman
Cabbage
Pak Choi
Salad leaves
Cucumber
Gherkins
And I also have limited amounts of the following
Onion
Mushrooms
Red pepper

So what else do you eat and what else could I be trying?????

Yes I must get some curly kale. I really like that and I see that you do different things with it.

I do have watercress as well actually. And roquet (sp?).

I don't like celeriac or celery.
 
#4
Me either, it is better though if you put it in the water when its boiling rather than heat it all up from cold - less bitter.

I eat most of the above and asparagus. Tonight my sister is having a curry night, so instead of having the rice and breads I'm going to make some creamed spinach which I will stir into her curry.
 
#6
I eat all of the above, plus a really nice cabbage and leek mix that Tesco do.
 
#7
Bamboo shoots - no carbs at all according to the tin and I love them in thai meals. Also, after 6 weeks hard work in the garden we're now eating home-grown courgettes! Yum.

Oh yes, must get some bamboo shoots and beansprouts this week.

Home grown veg, you lucky things. I am going to try growing some in containers this year.
 
#9
Yes, I'm envious of the home grown veggies.. I'll be planting some Swiss chard next month once I'm sure the frosts have gone. Dead easy to grow and tastes yummy.

I think celeriac tastes like a cross between potato and turnip.

Ooh am with you there Jools on veg in Jim's curry. I love all types of veg in it.

DDT, I also hate celery and found that it had a very similar taste myself. But you should give it a go and see for yourself.

Go on, give it a try :D. You might like it. There is another member who doesn't like celery but celeriac is her new favourite veg. I dare you to try it!!!!

I like to do celeriac "Chips". Quite a good substitute.

Will have to try turnip wedges. Turnip is my new found veg that I love. I like it in a curry with cauli and brocolli. Then serve with grilled fish. Yum!!!!
