    Canned smoked herring- why does everyone except me think its gross?

    I love canned fish! But mostly I eat sardines.

    Parsnips
    Don’t add much to the look of a plate, since they’re just white, but they have lots of vitamins, and if you roast them, they get incredibly sweet.

    Fried okra
    Obviously not the healthiest of veggie preparations, but one of my faves that not a lot of people seem to like.

    Toast with strawberry preserves and sour cream
    Apparently it sounds gross to lots of people, but give it a try. The sour cream and strawberries balance each other out so well.

    Roasted parsnips are great. Veganomicon has a recipe I like for a raw parsnip and beet salad. Basically you add them to a pineapple juice dressing and let them macerate in that overnight.

    And fried okra! Yum. My grandmother used to slice it dime thin, coat it in cornmeal, and then fry it in an iron skillet until it was crunchy crispy. I have never figured out how to get mine so crispy so these days I make bindi masala out of it instead.

    Just plain old white potatoes... they don't get a lot of love from dieticians and usually when people are trying to lose weight they are told to avoid potatoes. But they pack so many great micronutrients, not the least of which is potassium.

    Skate is mild but sweetish, flaky, with lots of large bones. It's really delicious and unfortunately hard to find here in Toronto.
