DH hates cilantro, cucumbers and bell peppers. Substitutions?

HBGigi | Dec 6, 2008 07:07 PM

Just got a new cookbook from Cuisine at Home and most of the recipes sound delicious EXCEPT 90% of them call for either cilantro, cucumbers or bell peppers. DH is fun to cook for since he's appreciative of all efforts but I'm finding that more and more new modern recipes call one or more of the above ingredients. I've substituted flat leaf parsley in the past for cilantro but the dishes seem to be kind of flat. As for cucumbers and bell peppers I try to leave them out but most of these new recipes need something in the way of bulk and/or flavor. Any suggestions?
