4 Foods You Think You Hate (But Actually Love!)

Posted by

Everyone has that one food they just can’t stand. We understand. On the other hand, many people have given up on foods they haven’t given a fair chance. You may think you hate these next ingredients, but let us explain why it's time to reconsider.

For some reason, people seem to steer clear of sweet, wonderful beets. When properly roasted, their natural sugars caramelize like none other. Try our Beet Salad with Arugula and Oranges -- the flavors are balanced to perfection.

Anchovies are a tragically misunderstood ingredient. We promise they won’t add overbearing fishiness to your dishes, just umami goodness! If we didn't share the news, you’d never guess that they're the secret ingredient in our Spaghetti Puttanesca.

Tofu isn’t just for vegetarians. If you think you despise it for being bland and flavorless, you’re cooking it wrong! Press it dry and season it up like we do in this Curried Tofu to find out what you’ve been missing.

We genuinely sympathize with cilantro-haters. It’s not your fault (it's a chemical thing)! But we know -- or we think -- that many people have written it off for no good reason. Game for a challenge? Try our Shrimp Salad with Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette and let us know if your mind changes (we bet it will).
