oh and garbage-tier chocolate falls into that same category of "inferior shit thats trying to take a free-ride of chocolates good reputation"

im such a chocolate elitist. its not like i think "good" chocolate needs to come from a particular place or anything, its just theres so much mass-produced nonsense. Chocolate is a gourmet experience to enjoy in moderation, it seems like a waste of guilt points to buy some second rate cadburys whatever (or the even worse stuff which is commonplace in america) for super cheap and just...practically engorge yourself on the entire whopping thing, all in one go

man what a rant. im so elitist when it comes to chocolate. It always rubs me the wrong way - instances of people choosing quantity and decadence over quality and quaint pleasures

maybe thai coconut soup? sautee a leek in a ton of turmeric and a bit of cumin, and a tin or 2 of coconut milk and top it up with stock of choice, add in some lentils and leave it to cook about an hour.

Come back, grate a nice huge wedge of ginger into it, throw in a roughly chopped garlic clove or 3, and season to taste. Blend the whole thing up, dump in a few handfuls of spinach and give it a minute to wilt in. Serve, drizzle lime juice over the bowls of soup in generous amounts

I can't think of any food I hate when done right. The only thing I couldn't not swallow as I have eaten too much and it makes me gag too much now is san pedro cactus. And that's not really food. it is better though

There's not really much that I won't eat. Now from my poorest days I have some strong memories though of cheap things that I didn't enjoy all that much. What are some of those things?

Cheap pork sticks out in my mind the most. I remember being able to get it for exceedingly low prices. It had a real horrible sort of gristle to it. IT was chewy when cooked but in all the wrong ways. It'd either be spare ribs that fell apart into bone shatters or was a pork roast that always had the consistency of rubber.

Instant mac and cheese. I remember eating this so much at one point that it began to taste like nothing to me. Just the texture a noodle going down. I always found something sort of questionable about that fucking powder anyways.

mushrooms do not "produce" water

theyll hold onto it if, in folly, you wash them beforehand. If you dry fry mushrooms youll very eventually be able to see their natural oils come forth...which i would say are fairly little. Once you get them to that point though, you can do some incredible things with minced garlic and parsley. That smell is one of my favorite things

The amount of water they absorb from being washed is negligible. As long as you're not soaking them or won't make a difference. I rinse mine in a colander

I like them better drained than in a soup.

In veggie cooking, spiced lentils can fit in a lot of places ground beef goes. That said, I like them refried as taco filling. You can use taco seasoning, but I do the following:

Cook and drain a bag of lentils
Throw the following in a blender and liquify: a can of condensed tomato soup, a can of chili in adobo, like 5 large dry chilis, 3/4 an onion, most of a bulb of garlic, maybe some cumin, some salt.
Heat some oil in a big wok, cook the remaining moisture out of the lentils, throw in the mixture, cook that until it starts getting crusty and good.
Eat tacos for a week because it makes a ton.

You could literally die after eating a raw mushroom even if this type of mushroom is edible when cooked. For the love of god don't eat raw mushrooms

Putting aside the 25/25/50 rule of mycology, if you know what type of mushrooms they are, you still shouldn't eat them raw. Raw mushrooms are bad.

I'm not sure if I'm following, as in you don't like to eat butter raw (like a normal person)? Or you don't like butter in general so like, no butter on your toast?

.. For me, I hate raw tomatoes on their own. I'll eat salsa. I'll eat sliced tomatoes in a sandwich or a burger, heck I ENJOY them in pretty much every shape and form

But I cannot eat a tomato on it's own. My brain is like "you should enjoy this" but my body is like "Fucking gross". Like I would would wince eating a plain tomato.

I'm not a fan of the texture of mushrooms, but I like their flavor.

Otherwise i'm game for pretty much everything.

I love almost all food, but the dealbreaker for me is banana. It's just too mushy and there is something about the banana aroma I find disagreeable. It's childish and almost contrivedly jovial. Like if one fruit (yes, yes, definitions) was gap toothed with an annoying doofus laugh it would be the banana.

For the people in this thread who dislike mushrooms because of their consistency: Try pan frying them in small batches in butter until they are crisp. Maybe even season with a bit of soy sauce. This is a nice entry level trick to get into mushrooms.

ha. same. the only time I eat fruit is on stims. berries, bananas, melon - they're great cause they're high in complex carbs which (I think) is good for when you're calorie starved and need some energy. and them being soft/high in water content means I can eat them despite the horrid dry mouth. yogurt's great for stim eating too.
