Okay - I know this isn't exactly on the topic, but...

Does he have trouble digesting more complex starches? If he won't eat potatoes & beans, maybe there is a reason - that even HE is not aware of - and just "senses" as general dislike :Shrug:

As for mixtures and combination foods - I have heard of other "picky eaters" not liking their foods touching, not liking too many ingredients in a dish. Perhaps their sensation of taste becomes overwhelmed by too many distinct flavors? :Shrug:

I too, used to stuff the most beautiful pumpkin or squash I could find with wild rice, mushrooms, lentils, nuts, etc. as a centerpiece (presentation) dish for a holiday meal. That won't work for your picky eater, but.... for everyone else, perhaps.

Okay, I'm chiming out now and letting the rest of you get back to the real discussion.

OMG, MoniDew, funny you mention the people who don't like food touching, that is TOTALLY him!! He'll get separate plates or bowls for any food that may possibly touch anything else, such as corn or salad or something!! And that taste sensation overload, you could be on to something, not long ago he was going on about liking bland food! I just can't go there, my mom always, always seasons the food she cooks and that's what I grew up on so I like FLAVOR!

This is a called Broccoli Casserole but it is more like filling cheesy broccoli. So you can call it what ever you want. It is one of my family's favorite dishes. It's definitely not a healthy side dish but soo good.
1 big bag frozen cut broccoli ( 16 oz I think)
1 sleeve Ritz Crackers crushed
8 oz Velveeta cubed
1 stick butter melted

Layer broccoli, cheese, and crackers in 1 qt casserole dish. Cover with melted butter. Bake 30 mins or until bubbly at 350.

Demonica, All I can say is "It's a good thing you love him!"

My DH used to be picky. He thought he didn't like cheese. I snuck it into food for years, and he never knew. Now, he openly eats cheese, but not all kinds. He used to tell me to lie to him about ingredients if I thought he wouldn't like it.

Thank goodness my DH isn't a picky eater! Now, DS on the other hand........

Demonica - can you give us an idea of what he WILL eat? It may be easier for us to come up with suggestions for you! Though I am not a vegetarian, DD's roommate is and we are always trying new things when we have her for dinner.

Ginny - thanks for posting those recipes - they sound yummy! I've printed them to try for DD's roomie

How about roasted or sauteed leeks? Maybe cooked in olive oil with some garlic and mushrooms? I've even mixed that into brown rice that I had cooked in vegetable broth instead of water.

Or how about baked spaghetti squash with parm cheese?
Or brussel sprouts (buy frozen) that have been steamed or sauteed (yummy) with butter or olive oil spread? Do you eat butter?

I love butternut squash ravioli with brown butter sage sauce! Not only is it delicious, but I can buy the ravioli and only have to worry about making the sauce If your hubby doesn't like butternut squash, then you can definitely switch it up by using sweet squash or even pumpkin to stuff the ravioli. This recipe should yield enough sauce for 4-6 servings.

Brown Butter Sage Sauce

1/2 c unsalted butter
10-12 fresh sage leaves

Melt the butter in a large sautee pan (about med/low heat). Add the sage leaves and continue cooking until the butter turns brown, being careful not to burn it. I like for it to have a med amber color. Place the pasta on individual plates and spoon some of the sauce (and sage leaves!) over each of the servings. Sprinkle some Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese on top and enjoy!
