yes. i dont eat cucumber. i dont know why i dont like, i mean i cant explain why i dont like that vegetable, maybe because it is watery it feels like someone put it already inside their mouth (har har har what a logic) but i dont eat cucumber and i think everybody eats it. i dont eat tomatoes too. but if you put in into cooking then i will eat it. but eat it as fresh i cant.

what do you mean by peppers jen.... the peppers that you see on top of pizza? is that the one you dont eat? or the hot ones that makes you drink tons of water? har har har. i dont like peppers too when they taste hot, it depends only on what recipe it was on. the bell peppers are sweet i guess but i dont eat that much as well. thanks a lot for the response

Those hot ones are not for me..lol..I don't much care for a lot of heat and I have had a pepper or two burn me up. I'm ok with sweeter ones but I still don't eat a lot of them.

Yes i do have sets of vegetables that i don't like eating. These are the following: radish, okra and celery. I know many loves eating these veggies and even made them their favorite but i am throwing up every time i try eating. I don't put celery in my noodles -"bihon". No radish in my "sinigang" or "nilaga" i hate the smell of it once you open your casserole and okra for "pakbet" it's okay but i don't eat it. The slippery feel makes me blow.

I don't like spinach, leafy vegetable and some bitter taste. I don't like to eat also those vegetable with too much foul odor when preparing. When i was a small child i never taste even one of this veggie. But during my younger days i tried to taste one leafy vegetable it was a camote tops and for me it taste good. And when i settled my life with my husband i appreciate much the importance of vegetable into our body..

Hi, se7. Many people have said that they eat Eggplant. And they love it. But, this is one veggie that you may have to blindfold me on. The other veggie is beets. I have heard that they say that this is good for your blood and it helps with Iron regularities as well. I love other veggies, but these two you can't pay me to eat it! I have eaten beets before, and they are nasty. They taste bitter and it leaks of deep reddish juice..

ido eat egg plants but itdepends on how it was cooked. have you tried eggplants roll and top it with tomato sauce cooked as lasagna style? i tried that ne and my wife did not informed me that it was eggplant. it was tasty and no taste thatyou will suspect it was eggplant.i guess like you said there are veggies that we can eat as longas we are blindfolded for sometimes it taste good but does not look or smell good. thanks a lot for the response

hi se7enthbird^^;; hhmmm cucumber is delicious specially when dipped into a mixture of mayonnaise and ketchup or other dressings like honeymustard and thousand islandsanyway, i don't personally like okra but i try to eat it. i don't like the slimy feeling in the mouth..it feels disgusting but i still try to eat and just swallow it sometimes i'm trying to eat because i want to get accustomed to the taste and won't be considered as picky when i meet others LoL.

it doesnt meant that when it taste good for you then its taste good for others.... though i believe that there are more people who enjoys eating cucumber. m wife even eats it out from the fridge, without peeling the skin har har har. yes okra feels disgusting. green leafy ones are the the best for me and beans too. thanks a lot for the response

I don't like tomato, it tastes weird to me. It's not even in compliance with my way of eating so it doesn't bother me to avoid it, but I use it really seldom. It seems weird.

wow i dont eat lady fingers, thats too slimy right? but your brother is strange in a way for he can eat the lady fingers where not most people eat. i guess most of us eats potatoes. i enjoy non veg too, but of course we still need intake of a few veggies. thanks a lot for the response

I like cucumber, but I don't eat tomatos. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who doesn't eat tomatos around me, but I really dislike the taste.

I don't like onions or mushrooms. I don't know if they are the kind of vegetable you are talking about. I like spinich and carrots raw, but if they are cooked I don't like them. A lot of the responses cited okra and eggplant as veggies they don't like, I don't know if I like them because I've never tried them.

I am not a picky eater at all, and I eat lots of vegetables everyday, whether raw or cooked! However, there are a few I won't touch: hominy, beet roots (leaves are fine), and jicama root. Even the smell of hominy makes me feel sick. My parents once force-fed it to me when I was little because I wouldn't eat it. Sometimes I can handle it if it is fixed like grits, a popular dish in the southern US, with lots of flavorings mixed in, but even then I try not to have to eat it. Jicama (if I'm spelling it right) tasted like dirt to me the one time I had it, while beets tasted like dirt with sugar. Yuck! I would give them all another try, but I don't think anything would change. I do love cucumbers and tomatoes though! I grow them in my garden every year!

Just to remind you, tomatoes are fruits not vegetables. I don't like tomatoes if eaten fresh like that, but i love it when it's juiced. For vegetables, I don't think there's any particular vegetables that I don't eat, because I'm a vegetable fan myself.

I like most vegetables. The only one that I really do not like is mushrooms. The only time I will eat them is if there really is no way to pick them out of my food. Like you with the cucumbers, I think it might just be the texture I don't like more than anything else. Now, besides mushrooms, there is a vegetable that I can't eat because it makes me ill, literally, and that's spinach. I don't know what it is, but i will get sick to my stomach if I eat something with spinach in it.

I don't eat squash. I really don't know why but maybe because I wasn't use to it when I was a child? When my wife prepared a vegetable soup with squash, I automatically put it away from my bowl.

I do not know whether Mushroom qualifies as a vegetable. If so, then I do not eat Mushroom, somehow I had it's strong taste. So in pizzas I would spend a significant amount of time removing mushrooms from my Pizza. Apart from that all vegetables work for me. Cheers! Ram
