Even though they are healthy, some people genuinely hate vegetables. We have trod the streets of recipes and are ready to reveal 15 healthy dishes for people who hate veggies, as shared by culinary enthusiasts in an online community. While vegetables feature in some of these recipes, don’t shy away! These dishes will make even the biggest veggie-shy eater happy.
1. Omelette With Mushrooms
Ideally, some people (many, actually) make their omelets by adding veggies to them. However, you can make a lovely omelet for veggie haters and use mushrooms instead of veggies. Someone recommends that you add chicken as well if you wish to. “Sweet combo,” they suggest.
2. Fruit Parfait
Try this fruity recipe if you dislike veggies! Who says that a healthy meal can’t be sweet? Enjoy the taste of layered yogurt, granola, and fruit. A few suggestions would be strawberries, bananas, blackberries, and papaya. The good news is that there are almost no rules regarding fruit.
Okay, we know you sometimes call your friends couch potatoes, but that only proves potatoes can make fantastic buddies. We know potatoes are veggies, but they’re one that most veggie haters can get behind. They are good sources of protein, carbs, fiber, and vitamins. There are several ways you can prepare a potato dish. If you don’t like them boiled, you can bake them for a crunchy texture.
4. Riced Cauliflower
Many people are tired of cooked rice. Riced cauliflower, in contrast to rice, is excellent in calories and carbs. It’s similar in texture and appearance to rice, and you wouldn’t tell the difference until you consciously tried to. It may be a veggie, but one most people don’t mind adding to their plate.
5. Broccoli and Cheddar Soup
This dish has an unbelievably soothing quality. Creamy cheddar and soft broccoli combine to make you wonder why you ever had doubts about those vegetables because they taste different from all the vegetables you probably avoid.
6. Cheese and Red Pepper Quesadillas
This dish delightfully combines roasted peppers, onions, black beans, and bacon and oozes with cheese. Even those who’ve sworn on their graves never to try veggies again would be lost in the delight of its taste. These components are tasty and hard to beat.
7. Carrot Barbecue
It’s not a crime if you like your carrots crispy. It is, in fact, one of the most creative and delicious ways to eat a carrot. Don’t think preparing this dish is as simple as getting fresh carrots and putting them over the flames to roast — there is more to it. Fortunately, it’s easy to learn online.
A contributor guides a delightful risotto meal: “Rehydrate some dried wild mushrooms (e.g., Porcini) and fry some basic fresh ones in butter and stir into a simple cooked risotto with plenty of parmesan. Add something like frozen peas or chopped cooked asparagus for extra veggies. You can top it with a poached egg to make it extra posh and add more protein.” We don’t know about you, but that sounds delicious.
9. Avocado Chocolate Mousse
Oh-so-chocolatey, delicious, and creamy! This guilt-free dessert with a velvety texture from avocado will make your heart skip a beat. This dessert is also rich in nutrients. The good thing is that you never get to taste the avocado, just in case the taste of avocados makes you cringe.
10. Watermelon Pizza
Get your knives and pizza boxes; it’s time to roll up your sleeves and enjoy what you love the most. While making watermelon pizza, you may cut it into wedges resembling pizza, then top it with yogurt, berries, and nuts for a whimsical treat that is as much fun to prepare as it is to eat.
11. Baked Broccoli Cheese Ball
You couldn’t trace the presence of vegetables in these delightful cheese balls, even after being crammed with at least two whole cups of veggies. These baked broccoli cheese balls require only a few essential ingredients: broccoli, panko, eggs, cheddar cheese, green onions, and garlic.
12. Yakisoba-Style Spaghetti Squash
Even if you don’t like noodles, you’ll love this one. It’s pretty tasty, makes for a perfect light dinner meal, and is simple to cook. Roasting the spaghetti squash and separating the pulp into strands will simplify preparation.
13. Eggplant Lasagna
Make this sumptuous meal in the morning, and you will have a wonderful dinner tonight. You’ll love this recipe of layered eggplants roasted to a crisp, garnished with beef marinara, creamy ricotta, and melty cheese. Another delightful way to serve this is with strips of yellow squash or zucchini.
14. Walnut Chorizo
If you’re not aware, walnuts are rich in antioxidants, promote a healthy gut, support weight management, and may reduce the risk of some cancers, to mention a few benefits. You’d mistake this delicacy for shredded meat without a close look. Preparation is simple: walnuts are blended with sun-dried tomatoes and some spices (oregano and paprika are most preferred). Before adding this to tacos, salads, and sandwiches, add a little vinegar for an even more genuine tang.
15. Ham and Broccoli Frittata
We know you’re already drooling, frittata lovers. This easy-to-make sumptuous frittata recipe with ham, cheddar cheese, and broccoli is low in carbohydrates. It can be a perfect breakfast or brunch meal with ham and broccoli. You can spice it with your favorite spices and add only a bit of meat for extra flavor.
