    Hi all

    I am curious to see what veggies everyone eats. I am eating lots of the list below, but wonder if there are others I could be trying. I love veg and there are very few that I don't like.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!!!!
