The best beet recipe I have come across:

1. Put beets in plastic bag
2. Place bag directly into garbage
3. Eat some meat, jerkoff

Dr. Hibbert: Another broccoli-related death.
Marge: But I thought broccoli was...
Dr. Hibbert: Oh yes. One of the deadliest plants on earth. It tries to warn you itself with its terrible taste.

factoryconnection: I was all excited to turn my menus on to sunchokes and then I realized that they were "over" a mere few paragraphs down.  Which is nice, since I don't have to find sunchokes now.

Having never heard of "ramps," it is also convenient that they too are "done."

Most overrated vegetable: Portobello mushrooms

Mushrooms are not vegetables.

If you are going to be pedantic, you need to include eggplant, bell peppers, summer squash, and truffles.

Uhm, no. Everything you listed, save truffles, is vegetable; truffles and portobellos are fungi.

So he can be pointlessly pedantic just fine as is.

ChubbyTiger: anuran: Never liked kale even before it was cool. It's tough, bitter, and you need to freeze it or remove the central rib to make it edible.
Broccoli is great; I think people get tired of it because it's available when just about no other fresh veggies are to be had.

Biggest arsehole comment:

Black truffles
"Now that they are being farm-raised everywhere, we have seen a surge of very expensive flavorless nuggets showing up on menus. Rarely do I come across a head-turning burst of flavor from them. Wait until November and get the foraged Italian white ones. They are soooo much better!"

They're the same farking truffle grown the same farking way as the ones you have to fight the pig over. And they taste just as good. What you resent is that people don't have to pay four hundred bucks an ounce for them anymore. Now that you can't lord it over the plebes any longer you need something else as expensive as printer ink to justify the prices on your menu.

White and black truffles are quite different. I can afford neither, mind you.

Would you describe the difference as "like night and day?"

What kind of loser eats vegetables that they buy at a grocery store?  I have my houseboy fly to South America daily to bring back something you peasants have never heard of.

Beerguy: jgbrowning: Evil Mackerel: Nice plate.

This may be one of the best comments I've ever seen on Fark.

//hat's off to you

I have the feeling that I am missing something here....

Go back and read it again and think about.

Now, after thinking of all the various ways "Nice plate" could be taken (sarcastic, ironic, humorously, etc.) you're left with the inevitable conclusion that he really just meant, "Nice plate."

And then you're drawn into the spiraling abyss where "Nice plate" exists as an honest-to-god comment.

Nice plate.

/Boom! Headshot.

tricycleracer: The place I'm having dinner tonight makes killer Brussels sprouts.

Is it a sports bar in a strip mall?

I lost my enthusiasm for broccoli the third time I found a big, dead caterpillar hiding in the branches. I still like it, but I make damned sure to cut the crown up and inspect it thoroughly.

And don't tell me "it's protein." That's what I tell your mom when she refuses to swallow.

"Kale is just too crazy popular!"  Good lord, you're chefs, make shiat that we like, be creative with it, and leave the whole "I was into it before it was cool" to the skinny jeaned morons in Williamsburg.
