    First off, I would like to apolagize for the least classy topic on the forum: the customer is always an ass. It really exposed the high amount of class that everyone on this forum has, and I am truly sorry for degrading style forum with the ludeness of that thread. I am sure I lost what little respect I have earned by that little fiasco. Something awful and SF are truly opposite ends of the spectrum and it should remain that way.

    Anyways, what is your favorite vegetable? I love cherry tomatoes, celery and lettuce. I was a vegetarian for a while, and am seriously considering going that way again.

    I love asparagus, zucchini (but not yellow squash), and celery. I also dig tubers....radishes and turnips. And, technically tomatoes are a fruit, but I still consider them vegetables because they are not sweet.

    The leek has to be the most underappreciated vegetable on the planet.

    Fresh potato leek soup can be great. I like the combination of potatoes, cabbage, carrots, and onions, in a curry or other spiced sauce. Indian restaurants usually serve this, along with a local Somali/Ethiopian restaurant (they don't serve it with potatoes, but another vegetable I cannot currently remember).

    Surprisingly, I like brussel sprouts too. You have to cut an X where the root connects before you cook them, so they aren't as bitter.

    Your avatar could be to blame. [​IMG]


    My favorite vegetable is marijuana.

    zucchinni, grilled with some rock salt and cracked pepper.

    I do this with a bit of olive oil and some lemon pepper seasoning. Love the grilled veggies

    I also am also liking roast aubergine, grilled portabellos, blanched then grilled asparagus and artichokes these days

    I am afraid of peas though. I dont think that it is right that they are so round and perfect. The skin is deceiving also. I think that they are mocking me

    Ohhh, and huge beefsteak tomatos sliced with salt and lots of pepper

    And as one of my Indian collegues reminds me... Beer is vegetarian... So must be vegetable... 3-5 servings per day

    Tomato is a fruit in the botanical sense but is a vegetable in the culinary sense. Squash is the same way. Not all beer is vegetarian. See isinglass. I am fond of asparagus.
