I believe we had a thread about okra once before. If you don't like it slimey the key is not to remove all of the stem, leave a little "cap" on the end. One recipe was to brush small, whole okra pods with olive oil and salt and pepper them. Then put them on skewers and over a barbeque grill for about 5 minutes a side. There was another thread on a gardening forum I am on. Give me a day or two and I'll dig it up.

I select the smaller okra (finger-sized) and wash them.  Next I steam them whole for 5 minutes.  Finally I trim both ends off each okra.  I sprinkle with a little salt and enjoy!

Carob - melt some ghee, stir in almond butter, add in some honey or molasses or whatever,  stir in carob powder.  This is good spread in celery sticks as well as eaten alone or spread on plain rice snaps.

Quoted from marianne
Even though I have learned to say, "I don't like coconut." or "I don't eat anchovies"...  It is not because of the way they taste!

It's funny you should mention this because for YEARS I used to say "I don't like mayonnaise" when in fact I really love mayonnaise. It was mostly because of the fat content (back when I was eating low-fat). Unfortunately for me, lately I've rediscovered the deliciousness of mayonnaise sandwiches, only I am using non-compliant mayonnaise. I really gotta learn to make my own to taste like Best Foods.

I love turmeric on chicken...

bennies I don't like? Where to begin? Fish- I don't eat any seafood yet. One day I'll really make an effort, now I only say I wish I could eat fish. HATE carob. Will NOT touch liver. Don't really care for turnip, dandelion, beet, or  mustard greens or chard. Only like Kale in little pieces in salad. I don't like any green vegetable cooked besides green peppers. Don't like lamb much, and I don't like raw onions... oh, and I don't eat any beans at all- bennie or otherwise...

I haven't tried okra or jerusalem artichokes- I think those are the only bennie veggies I haven't tried, but I still haven't tried many of the other neutral veggies...

For Cardio, it's a 'Frequent Neutral'.

My notes on Fatigue and Aging don't mention eggplant! Did not concern me at the time I took them.......

Since I have no nightshade issues, I will partake from time to time.

No need to get alarmed. Arthitis is another issue.....the avoid monster!

Tried a new 'mix' tonight. Dandelion greens with Julienned raw Turnip root, topped with a ginger/garlic dressing.

I love food in general, and am pretty omnivorous, but there are a few bennies I don't like or at least am a little unfamiliar with: heart, walnuts, endive, bananas, mango, guava, all kinds of sea-weed, and carbonated water. I've never tasted okra or adzukibeans that I know of, but I dislike all kinds of beans except green beans, so I can't imagine I like adzuki beans...

Heh, this is so funny! I have a very good friend from University, she's very slim and works hard to stay that way, BUT she LOVES mayonnaise. She use to say: "When women say they don't like mayonnaise, that's just a big fat lie! No one dislikes mayonnaise - they just say that to sound political correct...!!!"
HAH - I'll email her right away to let her know, she was right all along!!!

May I step in for making a request?

I know all of you have good will and don't erally want to offend anyone. But could we please settle for "dislike" or "don't like" or even "hate"? Instead of describing scenes that may be disturbing those who actually love that particular food.

Thank you for your kind understanding.

Cheers,
Yaman

What beneficial foods for your type do you not like the taste of?

That'd be okra.

I love okra! Of course my introduction to it was fried, and I've worked up to stewed with tomatoes, which are both pretty tasty, I like it in stews as well, but I'm not brave enough to eat it plain steamed or boiled...I'm afraid I'd stop liking it if I tried that.

I can't say that there's a vegetable I really dislike, I have other excuses when I don't eat enough veggies...simply lacking the time to cook them, usually.  I try to cook broccoli in bulk once a week so I at least have something green to eat when life gets crazy.

I really like okra sauteed in ghee with chopped onion. served with some sea salt. I sometimes fix and enjoy it as sort of a after dinner dessert like treat.

Don- do you slice it first, or saute the whole pods?

If only I could ever consider a vegetable a "dessert"

I cut the okra up in 1/4 to 1/2 inch pieces.

Don't you consider pumpkin pie as dessert?

So I have a can of okra. Presumably it's already cooked. What suggestions do you 'okra loving folks' have for me on how to prepare it for eating? Remember, it's my first time and I really want to like it .

I would think you could still saute it in ghee. You could I also add the canned okra to things like soup or stew.

I make a pot of beneficial bean soup about once a month and usually add okra to it.

I think that onions are very sweet and when cooked and served with ghee and/or olive oil, both of with I really love, makes for a nice treat. The okra is just a beneficial bonus.

Last night, I steamed parsnips, carrots and red onions in a little water, and then stirred them in the skillet with ground lamb, just before taking off the heat.  Later, I drank the water from the vegetables.  It was as sweet as a glass of fruit juice.  Amazing!

Back to dislikes, I have had a real hard time liking greens . . collards, kale, etc.

I recently cooked a bunch of chopped collards a la Don, steaming them in a little water for about an hour and 15 minutes.  I drained them, mixed them with a little sea salt, olive oil and ghee, and OH!  I have to say, I really liked them!! Wonder of wonders.  It was that long cooking that made all the difference.
