  • Sprouts

    I love sprouts, but not many people seem to like them
    They are very nutritious. They contain fiber, manganese, riboflavin, copper, protein, thiamin, niacin, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. They also provide vitamins A , C and K, .

  • Being a Kimchi-enthusiast, cabbage is definitely up there for me.
    However, I would go with spinach.
    I think for many people, spinach is a rather dull and unimpressive vegetable. On its own and if badly prepared, it can easily taste like slightly flavored water. It doesn't look particularly pretty and most children have a passionate hatred for it.

    This conceals the fact that spinach is actually very versatile and - for those who care - also very healthy. It can be found in all kinds of different cuisines, be it in a very hearty, German meat dish (usually as a side) or in a lightly, fluffy, Greek spanakopita pie, paired with Feta cheese (an incredibly harmonious coupling). Ironically, it is the very fact that spinach is a rather mildly tasting vegetable that makes it possible to use it for all kinds of different dishes. It fits to meat, sausage (the unsliced ones I mean), fish, cheese, other vegetables (tomatoes, eggplant, sauerkraut etc.), potatoes (mashed or whole), it can be sautéed with garlic, it can even be turned into ice cream (I admit this is a little peculiar but it has been done). Spinach is definitely a secret hero of the kitchen in my opinion.

  • Hmmm...

    Spinach. It goes well in a lot of dishes. It's good in an omelette. Hella good in a smoothie. Great as vegetable with a lot of meals. And super low in calories.

  • Okra, not many shops sell it and nor do any restaurants use it.

    I personally love the taste ♥

  • I'd say okra just because I like the taste and it can be put in many more dishes than you'd think. Down in the south we fry it which is kind of counter intuitive but we also use it in all sorts of things. I like it sautéed which isn't conventional. I've liked it any way it was prepared.

  • Brussels sprouts and onions. People are always scared of brussels sprouts but they're delicious! And people tend to think of onions as "accessory vegetables" but they're great on their own.

    • Why? Because most Americans don't like to eat vegetables lol

    • Show All
    • A big reason why us Americans eat less healthy has less to do with what we eat and more to do with the massive portion sizes.

    • @HorrorFan true but its also because we pack a bunch of sugar, salt, and preservatives in our food that also makes us unhealthy. Both go hand in hand

  • Sweet potato 🍠 is the beat

  • Eggplants maybe. There's a lot of applications for them in certain foods or sides. No one eats eggplants as much as tomatoes, potatoes, broccoli, etc.

    • Not the majority of vegetables, just some in specific. Due to them not being heavily in American history. Everyone knows about potatoes and tomatoes, but not things like eggplants.

    • Ahhh I see :-)

  • Romaine lettuce is such an underdog!

    Romaine lettuce is usually just an afterthought. "Yeah it's just lettuce in my salad".

    It is more nutritious than most people give it credit for. 🥗

  • Urrrgh cabbage! Unless it's saurkraut then I'll pass

    But IMHO Broccoli. It can be in stir fried, sauteed, boiled (if you must) roasted etc, makes great soup, and is generally tastey and nutrious.
