It drives me batshit those fuckers, the only veg I don't like are Brussell Sprouts, those things are shit but broccoli, asparagus, cabbage, onion, carrot, root veg ... I'll eat the all day.

I once got lumbered sitting next to some dumb bitch at a wedding and the menu for the dinner came out and she asked for the kids menu, proceeded to pick the chicken nuggets from the kids menu, all the while her mum was validating her actions, saying "yeah that's OK hen, you get what you like" and then the meals got brought out and swear to God, her fat face slumps with disappointment because it was "they real chicken nuggets" i.e. chicken nuggets made with actual chicken breast, seasoned, coated in breadcrumbs and cooked. She sat poking at them with her fork with a huffy look on her face.

Fucking retard ... she was moaning they had put veg on her plate too, I had spend the entire meal next to this cunt that I didn't know and I'm not known for my tolerance for this kind of shit.

Yep, those type of cunts who won't eat a meal or part of a meal because part of it has touch a vegetable. I'm allergic to egg so have to be careful...actually need to be a lot more careful having fucked myself up quite bad three times last month. If I order a burger when out I've got to make sure they don't put mayo on the plate or any dodgy sauce on the burger. Some folk act the same if lettuce gets near the patty.

Went into a fish and chip shop years ago at the seaside. Proper place with those home made fish cakes with actual fish in them and are about the size of a small tank. This little round shaped lass was complaining like hell to her mum when her unwrapped meal was given to her that the fish cake was not one of those tiny orange looking things you get for 50p in regular chippies. In a way fair enough because those little bastards are great, but she'd hit the mother load with the fish cake she'd got. Bought one myself.

On the back of this thread and me being knackered I ordered a takeway last night. Fairly ordinary local place. Went for a tray of kebab meat with lashing of chilli sauce. When the thing arrived they'd covered it in a shed load of lettuce and chopped up full onion and put that on top.

@gumbo2176 your leafy green pickings sound great. I've never got into that type of gardening myself, or any type. As a kid we had quite a bit out back. It took me a long time to accept how great the different textures and slight tastes a good salad could have. The colours too make a plate look stunning.

I don't like milk unless it's on cereal or in tea, coffee, hot chocolate. Can't stand it on its own.

I used to be fussy as a kid, and then gradually liked more and more things. But I didn't like raw tomatoes until my mid 20's and didn't like mushrooms until late 20's. The last thing that stayed as a dislike was olives...until this year. Fucking weird to get to 39 before you like olives, but very pleased to be there.

Anyway, my mate's dad won't eat any vegetables bar potatoes. My mate and his wife made his parents a chicken curry with different veg in it, and his dad literally picked out every vegetable piece and left it on the side of the plate. Fucking mental. This is a man in his late 50's. He also eats sticks of butter on their own. In secret. My mate and his brothers will try and catch him, and he will act like he's been caught wanking to bestiality porn, but there he is, hiding away in the converted basement, eating an entire stick of butter like it's a chocolate bar.

I might be wrong, but I reckon you've always been served them steamed or boiled. Give this a go, and if you still don't like them...fair enough. Cut them length ways in half, then just put them in a bowl with a good amount of olive oil, a decent amount of rock salt and cracked black pepper. Mix them about so that every part of the sprout is covered in oil, salt and pepper, then put them in a pre heated oven and roast them. They cook quickly, but you can also do them under the grill...you want the outsides to darken up and crisp a bit.

They're fucking great when done like that. I could happily never eat a plain, steamed sprout again, but done like the above...fucking great. If you want to go further then you can chuck in some chunks of diced pancetta or regular smoked bacon, but you've making it less healthy then obviously.

I don't know why the rest of this post made me so angry, but that stupid fuck needs euthanizing.

My dad loves to cut his butter thick like cheese and put layers of these slabs of butter on his sandwiches, sometimes only butter sandwiches, butter was a rare luxury when he was young so this is a guilty pleasure that he treats himself to daily. As for grown men who won’t have certain vegetables in their food, my missus’s stepdad takes the cake, makes a big song and dance about being allergic to onions and garlic, which he most certainly isn’t, of course, everywhere he goes, like it’s his thing, grow the fuck up, dickhead, nobody gives a fuck that you don’t like onions and garlic. Hate going out for a meal with him, something I try to avoid, rather just have them over for lunch/dinner as I don’t have to put up with the embarrassing show he puts on every time, he likes all of his vegetables to be separated and nothing touching anything else, too. The man is nearing 80 ffs.

I get a love of butter. Thick butter on good, warm french bread is fucking great with nothing else. But whole sticks on its own? No no.

And that onion/garlic thing is just annoying as fuck, because onions are used as a base in so many cuisines around the world, and unless he's actually been diagnosed with an allergy he's basically acting like some self obsessed "look at me" 20 year old who has to bang on about their "issues" at all times. So few people who say they're gluten intolerant etc actually are.

The plus side is that for people with genuine allergies it has become much easier to eat out, but the downside is hearing people waffle on about their "intolerance" as if it's some sort of battle that they got through by being brave. Oooo fucking hell...so you get a stomach ache if you eat more than half a tub of ice cream eh? Shit, you fucking soldier, here's a medal.

Yeah, eating a stick of butter on its own is beyond the pale.

Nah, this bloke is certainly not allergic to onions and garlic, the mother in law has put it in his food many times without him ever knowing, it’s a total ballache for her as if she makes, for example, sausage rolls she has to make two batches.

You’re spot on about it being like a 20yo. girl with the “look at me”, it really shits me, I took the mother in law and my family out for mother’s day lunch at a local Chinese restaurant and he tagged along (they’ve divorced but still live together out of convenience and companionship) and fuck me, it was all about him, I ordered food for the table and that meant every dish had to be ordered for him, do you know how fucking ridiculous it is to ask for no onion in fried fucking rice!?

I’m getting a bit worked up right now, I blew a fucking gasket that day!

Fuck that. I would struggle to bite my tongue. In fact, I'd probably cook him pasta one night, blend up the onions and garlic so there were no discernible bits and the next day as he was sat there fine, say "There was lots of onion and garlic in that sauce last night, so you're not allergic, you just don't like big bits of it".

I can't be arsed eating out with picky eaters, if you have such a narrow range of things you are prepared to eat that everyone else has to work around you, then do the right thing and stay at home with your boiled potato and tap water diet.

I like meat but I love good, well-cooked vegetables.....as in cooked well. I’ve made a few vegetable curries that have made me consider giving up meat....for about five minutes.

Yeah, Unusually par boil spouts for 3 or 4 mins, then strain. Olive oil, pepper , rock salt, pancetta, onto a hot pan. Fucking delicious.

That’s exactly how I have my asparagus, it’s one of my favourite veg done this way so I’ll need to give sprouts a go ... might make the Xmas dinner sprouts actually enjoyable.

Well, I'll be damned...
Obviously I omitted the word ‘don’t ‘ there, but I was quite good at, and interested in biology, and science in general, when I was at school, it has served me well as a carpenter and I’ve earned a lot of money in the demolition game, complicated demolitions involving lack of access, pulling down dwellings/factories with party walls, preserving heratige listed aspects as well as just being the foreman on site watching over demo labourers who would start a demolition at the house stumps. All from having a keen interest in structural engineering, and science in general. Biology was the science I excelled at though.
