I have tons that I’d love to share, but I can only access my email for the time being, so I’ll just send you a couple that I’ve sent to other people!

I don’t know if you like Indian food, but this is one of my all time favorite meals.  It doesn’t sound like anything special, but trust me.  It’s delicious.  It’s also my boyfriends favorite thing I cook, and I cook pretty frequently!

Potato leek soup: this is super simple and another one of my favorites.  I love soup.

This one isn’t a meal, it’s a dip, but it always gets compliments!  

Black Bean Dip:

<div>Tortilla Chips</div>
<div>1 (15.5-oz.) can of black beans</div>
<div>1/2 small onion</div>
<div>2 tablespoons fresh cilantro</div>
<div>2 cloves garlic</div>
<div>3 tablespoons salsa (or diced tomatoes)</div>
<div>1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice</div>
<div>1 tablespoon chipotle flavored hot sauce</div>
<div>about 1/3 teaspoon cumin</div>
<div>about 1/3 teaspoon coriander</div>
<div>about 1/3 teaspoon chili powder</div>
<div>salt, to taste</div>
<div> </div>
<div>Empty black beans into bowl. Mash with a fork against the side of the bowl for desired consistency. Chop the onion, cilantro, and garlic. Combine all remaining ingredients in the bowl, and stir! </div>

goingtotherooftopoflove:  Oh wow! Lol! I’m a foodie, too, and my ex was like yours. My current FI was never adventurous, but he is now because of me and he loves it and can’t believe what he’s been missing! I hope your DH comes around because it’s way easier and more fun, especially when you’re a foodie, if they are more open to different things. Maybe just keep cooking what you like to cook and that’s all he’ll have to eat. I remember reading about cooking for kids. They turn their nose up at something the first time or two you serve it, but after several times they just get used to it. Though I will never ever be able to eat raw tomatoes. I try every year, though!

I’m gonna post the link to a meatloaf recipe that is TO DIE FOR. I’ve made this so many times I have it memorized. Even people that don’t like meatloaf have seconds on this! Hope you enjoy it!! 🙂<br /><br />

RedHeadKel:  I remember reading a study for one of my psychology classes when I was in college that said that kids might need to try new foods 10-15 times before the new food becomes palatable to them.

goingtotherooftopoflove:  Has your DH actually tried these things in recipes that are tasty? I know that a couple of friends I have had (who are very picky eaters) have been fine eating certain things such as vegetables they claim to dislike if it’s featured in an overall tasty recipe. Maybe that’s why he didn’t mind the diced tomatoes in the recipe you mentioned.

I think the only way to go about remedying this, if he is open to it, is to get him to try these foods over and over again. I think that food preferences exist, but if you’re saying that you think his mother gave up on introducing new foods (see the reply @RedHeadKel above), I would venture to guess that maybe your DH has not tried certain foods enough times to get used to them, may have formed negative associations with certain foods, and/or has not tried these foods in a form that is palatable to him (because foods can be prepared in so many different ways!).

So if your husband is open to trying new recipes and foods, I think that introducing something slowly would be the way to go, but make sure that you introduce it multiple times in each form as well as in different forms, and over time he may grow to like it. Additionally, I think that even if…for example let’s say someone doesn’t like spinach and you make a side dish with spinach and the person doesn’t want to try it but it’s on the table at dinner…well at least they’re seeing it and experiencing what it smells like. Maybe sometime in the future that person will be willing to try it.

That’s the other thing, I feel like if you want to eat something your husband dislikes or is not going to eat, it’d be really easy to put it in a side dish that you will eat and have a different side available that he will eat.

Sorry I know you wanted a thread about recipes but I hope that somewhat helps, I’m not a psychologist or a food coach so I don’t want anyone to take my opinions as any sort of professional advice (it’s not), but that’s just what I think based on my personal experience of living with several roommates who are picky eaters over the years.

MissMarple:  Exactly! And you know, there were some things I didn’t like til I put ’em on a pizza years ago. Just like you said, put the thinks you don’t like in something you like. So now I eat artichoke hearts, mushrooms, and <drum roll> sauerkraut! Yup, folks. These Midwesterners like their sauerkraut and it’s GOOD on pizza! Lol!
