Thread: Vegetable Sine Qua Non

  1. #1

    Vegetable Sine Qua Non

    I vote onions.

    French [...] soup, liver and [...], mirepoix, caramelized [...] with anything.

    N.B. Smug biologists notwithstanding, we're going to pretend that everything on the list above is a vegetable.

    Other beans. They're everywhere, so we could do with less I think.

    I've never seen fried beans though...

    "Which one vegetable could you least do without?"

    See, I meant to ask which vegetable you most like (which you could least do without).

    ...but your terrible hatred of Other Beans is duly noted.

    No chili for you.

    In that case, disregard my vote.

    A double negative?

    I don't know, but I love cauliflower. Either raw or steamed… I also make a really good cauliflower/potato soup.

    Whichever one happens to be in the garbage?

    I don't know which ones they actually prefer. (Ok, I'm totally failing this test!)

    True. Tomatoes and onions was a good choice. Dang, now I'm craving pico de gallo.

    I have no idea what they eat..

    They do like shiny objects (that's actually true). Wrap an oyster in tin foil and I expect they'd eat it.
