Best 'sleeper' vegies I'm missing out on?

Puffin3 | Feb 12, 2014 06:11 AM

I am in a vegie rut.
I have zero experience using any of the more 'exotic/ethnic' veg I always never buy b/c I don't know what they taste like nor their best uses.
I'm pretty much a 'meat and potatoes' cook when it comes to the veg I use every day. Tomato/onions/carrots etc. 'Western veg'.
I'd like to try some of these different veg. Can you all point me in some new veg usage directions? Can you put up a photo and tell me in what dish it is most used?
Forget recommending 'durian' LOL
Why don't grocery stores put 'how to use' signs/photos with the more 'esoteric' fruits/veg? Bet they'd sell more. Or have a small display where we can go find a photo and description on a touch screen in the store.
