  • - It doesn't look too appetizing to me.

  • - Beets are actually really good for your heart.

  • - (moodily) I'm not in the mood for vegetables!

  • ♪ (French accordion music) ♪

  • (screencaps whooshing)

  • - (FBE) So we're gonna have you try some Greek vegetables.

  • We'll show you the raw version, and then you'll be tasting

  • a prepared meal from a local Greek restaurant.

  • - Ooh, hope it's good.

  • - I don't like vegetables.

  • - Yeah, I love trying new things!

  • - (moodily) I'm not in the mood for vegetables!

  • - What is Greek food-- like, Greek food?

  • - Isn't Greek like another place?

  • - They're foreign and they're vegetables,

  • so it's scary.

  • - (FBE) Here is your first vegetable.

  • - Ooh, and that's an eggplant.

  • - Kinda look like a purple pear with this kind of weird stem.

  • - Is this squash?

  • - I know what it is. It's eggplant.

  • - It's gooey and squishy.

  • (mumbling) It's spicy.

  • - (gulping) That is amazing. Wow, that is good.

  • - Uh-uh, I don't like it.

  • It's spicy and it doesn't taste good.

  • - It's really spicy, like, ouch!

  • - It's very soft and squishy.

  • - It was really good.

  • I liked how there was feta cheese inside

  • and the taste of it.

  • - (FBE) This is popoutsakia, or grilled eggplant.

  • The word "popoutsakia" is literally translated to mean

  • "little shoes" because that is what the cooked eggplant

  • looks like when it's cut in half. - "Little shoes."

  • Okay.

  • - I don't see the little shoes.

  • - (FBE) Here's your next vegetable, and a picture of the raw version.

  • - That looks weird.

  • Wait, is it a leaf?

  • It doesn't look too appetizing to me.

  • - It's a leaf.

  • - It looks like seaweed.

  • I love seaweed.

  • - The inside looks very weird.

  • - It tastes like really, really, really,

  • really, really, really, really, really, really, really,

  • really, really, really, really, really salty steak.

  • - Nice texture, and then the stuff in the inside's nice.

  • The leaf is actually pretty good.

  • - Oh, ugh.

  • This stuff is sour and gross.

  • - Mmmm! These are so good.

  • There's meat and onion in it, I think,

  • and the outside is like seaweed, and there's cheese on it, I think.

  • - (FBE) This is called a grape leaf, or dolmades.

  • They are most often picked fresh from the vine

  • and stuffed with a mixture of rice, meat, and spices,

  • and then cooked by boiling or steaming.

  • - This is rice?

  • It's like mush on the inside and hard and leafy on the outside.

  • - I would try this again because it's nicely flavored,

  • but I have a question.

  • How many grape leaves does it take to cover this?

  • One or more?

  • - (FBE) Here's your next vegetable.

  • - Is this-- is this a radish?

  • - They look like radishes.

  • - Beets are actually really good for your heart.

  • - My dad would ask if I wanted some,

  • and I'd be like, "Um, no thanks."

  • - It's a little too squishy and doesn't really have

  • that much taste.

  • - It's kind of sweet.

  • - That is not bad.

  • It's pretty actually nicely flavored.

  • It's kinda soft and stuff.

  • I expected it to be hard and taste bad,

  • but opposite of both of those.

  • - I can't explain it, but... ewwww!

  • Hard enough to be a form, but squishy enough

  • to almost dissolve in your mouth.

  • - (FBE) This is a beet, or teftla.

  • Greek salads are a very popular dish,

  • typically consumed in the summer,

  • and you aren't having a Greek meal

  • if it isn't accompanied with a Greek salad.

  • This one is specifically a beet salad. - Wow, just this is a salad?

  • Wow, usually salads has this, that, that, that.

  • But done, here's your salad.

  • - Next time my dad's like, "Hey, you want some?"

  • I'll be like, "Sure!"

  • - (FBE) Here is your last vegetable.

  • - That does not look like that.

  • - Beans?

  • These look like really odd beans.

  • - It looks like sunflower seeds.

  • So this is raw?

  • - Don't judge anything by its looks.

  • That is actually really, really, really good!

  • - Mmmm. Delicious.

  • - It looks like it would taste bad, like throw up soup,

  • but nope, it's actually really good.

  • - It tastes like clam chowder, kind of,

  • but a little more bumpy.

  • - Yeah, it just taste like a bean.

  • - (FBE) This is lentils.

  • Lentils are a staple in the Greek kitchen,

  • and they are part of the legume family.

  • - That's what they're called!

  • I prefer it without all this green stuff,

  • but other than that, it was really good.

  • - They're really good. I would try them again.

  • - (FBE) So which one of these Greek vegetables

  • would you recommend people eat?

  • - The lentils.

  • - The grape leaf one.

  • - The grape leaf.

  • - Try the beet salad.

  • - The beet Greek salad.

  • - I think the beets.

  • - I would suggest lentils.
