A Bad Vegetarian’s List of Edible Vegetables

Vibrant Produce

I'm a bad vegetarian.  My diet is somewhat limited by peculiarly specific taste/texture dislikes which exclude most vegetables.

The only ones I can eat are:

  • Carrots
  • Peas
  • Potatoes
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Green Beans
  • Black beans
  • Brown beans
  • Corn
  • Lentil
  • Sun-dried tomatoes
  • Soy beans (not a huge fan, but I can eat them)
  • Chick peas (not a huge fan, but I can eat them)
  • Squash (only in soups with lots of bread available)
  • Onions (in small pieces and in certain situations)
  • Peppers  (in small pieces and in certain situations)
  • Tomatoes (in small pieces and in certain situations)
  • Celery (only in soup)
  • Mushrooms (only tiny dried pieces in Stroganoff/etc.)
  • Avocado (only in very small amounts in burritos/etc.)
  • Spinach (only in very small amounts in certain situations)
  • Chives (in small pieces and in certain situations)
  • Parsley (in small pieces and in certain situations)
  • Garlic

That being said, I can eat other vegetables in very limited/special situations, generally involving minute amounts in some foreign food.  For example, I can eat a vegetable fried egg roll as long as I don't dwell on the contents (if I were to open up the egg roll and try to eat it from the plate that would be a great challenge).

I wonder how common peculiar food issues are.
