What's a fruit or vegetable you think is underrated a while?

Based on taste alone I think parsnips and okra are super underrated! Fried parsnip only need a bit of salt and steamed okra is delicious with lemon juice and salt!
What would you say is underrated and why? E.g. macros, micros, taste, texture, benefits etc

Welcome to the forums :smile: What are you training for?


Home-grown broccoli :broccoli:. Nothing like the store stuff. Steamed or grilled and covered in salt and pepper…I’m hungry just thinking about it.

That’s tricky, because my siblings and I loved broccoli and especially spinach since we were small children, foods that other children detest. Does that count?

Otherwise, I can think of canned black beans. Holy moly, my wife and I are eating tons of it. Easy to make, delicious, cheap. But is it underrated? I don’t know.

Carrots, if roasted properly they are absolutely delicious!
Another low key accompaniment would be sauerkraut and Kim-chi :drooling_face:

Popcorn. Air-popped corn has many health benefits that few are aware of.

:drooling_face: oh man I gotta try that out!

Asian pears and jackfruit, maybe dragon fruit? All super refreshing especially in the summer. For veggies bok choy is super easy to sautee and cheap. Taro root is a great starch to mix things up

Also lady finger bananas fit in a jersey pocket way better than a normal banana and are the perfect serving size during a ride

I love this forum’s capacity to take a bunch of spam and turn it into a wholesome celebration of food. LOVE IT.

What the hell? Why would someone be spamming like this? There’s no link they are promoting.

Also, how’d you know?

So this is a wild guess, but if they can get people to search for something like steamed okra lemon recipe, and then get themselves a high SEO ranking for their own steamed okra with lemon juice and salt recipe, and then also load up that recipe page with ads or sales pitches, they’re off to the races. But that’s a guess.

It could also be an innocuous post to get past the “new poster” threshold, because some forums place restrictions on new users to cut down on spam and malicious behavior. (I don’t know if this forum does that.)

Generic username, recent account creation, first post, awkward phrasing and formatting, and no relevance to the forum topic were enough to make me curious.
