    Brussels sprouts, 1,000%!
    I'd also say a really nice charcuterie plate, figs, baby corn, tofu, spinach artichoke dip, ceviche, scallops and homemade Thanksgiving stuffing😊💚

    Beetroots in general
    Cabbage - just the boring white variety.
    Goats cheese
    Herbs - all of them (except sage)
    Pears
    Rhubarb
    Elderberries
    Capers
    Carrots
    Gooseberries - whatever happened to them! Not seen them for sale in eons! Little jewels of flavour!

    Amen to the goat cheese. Don't get people who hate on it!

    Potato chips. Nutritionally speaking, they're awesome for potassium.

    And sodium. Essential.

    Brussel sprouts! One of my favorite vegetables. And not underrated per se, but potatoes get a bad rep. They're really not as a calorie dense as one might think. They're actually super nutritious and low calorie, IMO.

    yes to Brussels! All in how you prepare them. Overcooked they are mushy and gross, yes. But grilled? Superb. Or cooked in a sheet pan with some bacon fat? THE BEST! Ughhh. And same for potatoes! Really, even frozen french fries, etc. aren't too caloric. I think its just the whole starch/carb/GI thing.

    Ricotta. I’ve been eating a lot of it on English muffins lately, and I even have a ricotta cookie recipe.

    Agreed! Ricotta + some cocoa powder, stevia and fresh raspberries is a great dessert! Also: english muffins are underrated in general... I prefer them over bagels.
