Is there a way to make vegetables taste less disgusting?

I really need to eat healthier. I occasionally eat salads and I eat fruits semi-regularly. I don't really eat veggies that much though... but I really need to. I've always hated them, but I need to change that. What are some ways that I could dress them up so that they don't taste so gross?

  • Raw vegetables tastes the best. If you stop eating proccessd foods your tastes will change and you will get the flavors from the veggies. I eat salads every day and don't put any dressing or seasonings on it. It's just a matter of reconditioning your palate.

  • Trader Joe’s has a delicious cilantro dressing that I use along with their broccoli slaw. Asparagus goes good blanched and then grilled off and I add balsamic reduction. For broccoli cheddar cheese is amazing. For carrots brown sugar glaze goes so good. And for egg plant you add tomato sauce , mozzarella slices , top off with panko , bake off , garnish with basil. Spinach goes good sweated off and with a dollop of daisy sour cream. Bock Choy is also amazing just sautéed off with a bit of soy sauce and sesame oil ❤️

  • Oh dear! Alright maybe tell me more about which veges you're talking about? For more robust vegs, try roasting or griddle searing for some of that smokey flavour. For lighter ones, take away the earthy smell by blanching in hot water. Some vegs such as brussel sprouts take well to frying too! (Finely shredd, blanch and deep fat fry for 1 to 2 minutes at 170 degrees) My go to for mushrooms is Ramsay's marinated mushrooms or Oliver's creme of mushroom. Potatos are my favourite, make them into potato cakes or stuffed or loaded potatoes. Salads wise, a sprinkle of salt before a dressing helps a ton, and do have a vinegarette on the ready to relax the dressing. Don't forget to season! Salt, pepper, cajon spice, etc! Just experiment a little, vegs are far more forgiving that meats so yup, have a blast with this.
    I'm a part time chef now, and I do come across plenty who walk in and ask for not even an ounce of veg, and I understand where they come from. Just be willing to try things for yourself and see what works best! :)

  • Rule #1 Thou shalt not overcook thy veggies.
    Try sauteeing rather than boiling or steaming. The oil in the pan just by itself adds a different level of flavour. All kinds of stuff you can add.
    Garlic. Ginger. Herbs. Spices. Tomato sauce. Sesame oil. Soya sauce.
    Here's a quickie that works well with a variety of greens:
    Dry toast fennel seeds in pan, low heat. When the aroma hits, up the heat to medium. Add just about any oil you like, finely chopped garlic, grated ginger, your veggies. When tender give it a good squeeze of lemon. Plate and serve.
    You can also try coriander, cumin, paprika (I prefer smokey), assorted herbs (try a mix, like herbes de provence).

  • Cook them with seasonings, if it's the flavors you don't like try different seasons that you like. I love garlic, so I will add actual garlic cloves (or poweder), dash of sea salt, pepper, you can get low fat cheese (this helps give you protein) while eating healthy, cook the veggies with other foods, look for receipes online - your options are rather endless. I cook from scratch all the time, and it's just matter of finding what you do like to make it work for you.

  • You can steam or roast them. Use the I can’t believe it’s not butter spray. It’s zero calories and add a bit of seasoning. Or toss veggies in evoo, season them and roast them in the over. Sometimes a little parmesan gives it flavor. Try different seasons from FlavorGod on IG. So many different variations.

  • The mere fact that you find vegetables as a whole disgusting speaks volumes. Literally none of them taste good to you? Makes you sound a bit like a 5 year old. But okay, let's see. There are some tricks that humans have invented tens long time ago, maybe you have heard of one or two of them:

    Seasoning, marinating, flavoring, cooking, frying, baking, grilling. To name a few. You know, the things you'd do with meat as well...

  • Find your niche and see what’s your personal taste, I love veggies but oriental or Asian flavored are sometimes too much for my taste buds. But I do love the Italian veggies as well as Mexican ones that I make. Find something you like :)

  • Vegetable lasagna (which is actually a LOT better than it sounds. Lasagna is like my favorite food ever and I like veggie lasagna better) wraps, subs, put it with food you do like.

    Whatever your favorite meal is, look online for ways to put veggies into it. Just dont open a can of peas and think thats the best you can do, search for recipes to make it taste great

  • Vegetables are not disgusting , just cut them , put some salt on them and eat them. You can make dishes with onions , potatoes and tomatoes (vegetable stew ) . You can even make a vegetarian shaorma with vegetables and add garlic sauce or ketchup or what you like. You can prepare smoothies with fruits , or add them into pancakes. Or make yourself a cheesecake with bananas or what fruits you like the most.

  • What?

    Easiest way and my favorite; Add olive oil and vinegar. Also boil the vegetables first. Thank me later. I also add a kind of plant which I forget the name of in English but it gives a great taste.

  • I just find a way to cook them to make them a certain texture that makes them amazing. Granted, I'd eat green beans every day for the rest of my life of I could, but they actually taste indescribably amazing when pan-fried with salt and pepper. Cooking in a pan with salt and pepper works for almost any vegetable, so I'd just recommend trying that.

    • What with?

    • Salt, cayenne pepper, garlic salt... Hmm should I be asking what u got in ur house? =)
      Go with what u usually use with food. And go lightly. They don't have a strong taste anyway

  • Washing them and cutting them up helps, a little salad dressing might help, you could also try teriyaki sauce.

    I really like Brussels sprouts fried in soy sauce with diced onion, then seasoned with black pepper. Give that a whirl.

    • I agree. U have to make it feel like it tastes good even if it doesn't. Just fake it. 😂 Just use ur mind.

  • Well it depends on what you are dealing with. Broccoli needs to be peeled so it doesn't taste bitter. I recommend you to look up cookbooks to see how make it taste better.

  • Slather it in sauces and spices. The Japanese, Koreans, and Chinese food styles do this a lot, so you can learn from them for recipes and meal ideas. Who doesn't like teriyaki stir fry, for example?

    Just last night, I made spaghetti without the noodles, and used brocolli and mixed veggies instead, and I replaced the meatballs with dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets and ground turkey meat. The only non-veggie carbs in the meal were the breading on the chicken, so other than that it's a perfectly healthy and keto-friendly way to get better food in your life.
