    Problem is if you read the title in 'recent posts', and click on it, sometimes it doesn't always register which forum you go to.
    (Well for me anyway)

    My youngest son says he hates mushrooms and won't eat them if he see them, when making a tomato based sauce I cut them up small so he can't see them:D

  5. The only thing I avoid is okra. Too sluggy in texture. Supposed to be good for diabetes so I may give them another go one day.

    I hated mushrooms for about 50 years until one fell on my plate accidentally. I thought it was something else so I ate it. I was astonished how delicious it was. I now have them every day in one form or another, but my favourite is simply sliced thin and fried in butter.

    I like the taste of mushrooms, but the texture - My skin is crawling just thinking about it! So I cut them up small and chuck them in with everything else!! Now if anyone mentions Quorn, :yuck:.... Sue xxx

    I love mushrooms, but I eat a lot of wild mushrooms, they taste totally different to farmed mushrooms.

    Grilled button mushrooms -stalks removed, caps filled with salted butter, crushed garlic and parsley then popped under a hot grill until slightly wrinkled (10 mins or so). Yum!

    If your problem is that they are a little soft or squidgy when cooked .. Then do try the chestnut mushrooms .. They are so different from the open capped ones ..sure you be be a fan in no time;)

    Cheers for the tip @Enclave :)

    I finally got around to making a mushroom & red wine pate this afternoon. Wasn't bad but I may try it with a stronger (than button) flavoured mushroom next time - the onion in the recipe seemed to take over a bit.

    So technically then you were wanting to taste the mushrooms? Thats a positive!! Or was it more red wine needed?

    I was definitely (pleasantly) surprised that it didn't seem 'mushroomy' enough for me! Husband commented that he enjoyed the strong onion flavour & he's supposed to be the mushroom fan :confused: Still I'm counting it as a win & will move onto something less likely to disguise the flavour - still a bit sus on the texture though.

    For me its Okra. I had it once and it was slimy and disgusting. I've been assured that this veg can be lovely if cooked properly - but think i'd be sick if it turned out slimy and snotty like the stuff I tried years ago - shudders.

    If you like the taste of mushrooms just not the texture - try blasting them in a food processor with other ingredients to make veggie burgers.
