Dealing with picky eaters

My family consists of picky eaters, I'm never sure what to cook for them, especially considering I try to not cook the same thing more than once or twice a month because that'll cause them to complain.

>Mom doesn't eat red meat or most non-vegetarian things, definitely not fish
>Dad doesn't eat chocolate, chicken, bread, rice and only eats European or Middle Eastern food
>sibling really doesn't like onions when they can see or remotely taste it, also very picky when it comes to vegetables of any kind

I need a proper food roster of stuff I can cook, I'm running out of creativity when it comes to what to cook for them.

    They hate your cooking specifically but they haven't abandoned hope for you as a human being yet so they haven't killed you in your sleep

      No they have the same preferences whenever anyone else cooks, it's equally frustrating on anyone else's part

      Don't cook for them.

      Otherwise nobody cooks and I don't wanna live off of precooked snacks or microwave meals. I also can't only cook for myself coz otherwise everyone else complains.

        Sounds like they're going to complain no matter what. Just cook what you like and tell them they can eat it or eat the precooked/microwave meals. No reason to bend over backwards catering to your parents. If it was your children, maybe I'd understand, but it doesn't make sense for a son/daughter to need to be accommodating to picky parents.

        only way to fix picky eaters is either poverty or military conscription. Not even making this up, I know cases.

    One person doesn't eat red meat or seafood, and someone else doesn't like chicken? I wouldn't cook for them, because this means you are making 2 mains each night, or always cooking pork. The least of your worries is having to repeat a menu item 2x/month. If they really liked it, no one would complain about that.

    Grill to order. Throw that chicken breast down at the same time as the steak or pork chop or sausage, or make "lebanese" or greek-flavored shishkebobs of various flavors. But skill dictates you need to know doneness. Bake whole roasts, and have really good sides for those skipping that protein that day. Cook only every other day, and do leftovers. These people are spoiled. My own father doesn't like chicken on-the-bone, but will eat boneless or airline chicken.

    Your sibling can eat around the onions, just do not finely dice them, just sliced, and either be careful when plating, or just warn them to eat around them. It's absolutely not possible to leave it out in every dish. Use more geen onion garnishes from time to time.

    It's summer, make more mains as salads with rotisserie chicken just pulled and shredded on top. Taboulleh, chopped salad, Cobb, caesar. Easy enough to set aside the onion. Make it more gourmet with homemade croutons and glazed nuts you added. Chinese salad with homemade dressing and lots of mandarins. Spinach w/apples or strawberries, poppy seed dressing, nuts, fresh mushrooms.

            American pork meat is white from malnourished pigs. Here in Europe it is definitely red or pink.

    You'll only have to this twice and they'll magically be willing to at least try it out. Picky eaters only act like that because they know you'll make something else for them.

    The best way is simply not to. Don't try to cook for them and don't buy them any food. Cook for yourself and be healthy, show off your good health within time, and watch them seethe.

      Neither do I but they limit whatever I can do so much. Oh, you wanna use a mirepoix as the base of your meat sauce or soup? No can do, there's gonna be complaints about carrots and celery. Oh, you wanna cook a steak? Mom won't eat it. A burger? Dad doesn't wanna eat bread and doesn't like the idea of burgers because he considers them unhealthy even tho he eats worse shit daily. I could go on for hours dawg

      Are you the designated caretaker? As in, your parents are old and senile while your sibko are moronic? If not, simply cook for yourself and let hunger gnaw at their pickiness.

      Cook whatever you want

      I don't know why you're having this conversation with us instead of them.

      Already answered that in the response you tagged, they still expect me to find something they all like and none of them consider themselves picky, they just tell me to "cook like a normal person" because I *rolls complaint dice* added additional parmesan on top of a pasta dish or *rolls again* didn't cook a steak well done or *rolls again* added garlic to something that someone prefers without.

        I can but my options there are somewhat limited as well. My Dad's not a big fan of carbs and most sauces and variations usually include vegetables that my Dad or my sibling won't like and most protein sources have a good chance to lead to issues with my mom's taste. Also can't make too many pasta variations too often because they'll complain about me only cooking pasta.
        [...]
        [...]
        Ik but I already explained why I can't do that, it'd only lead to a frick ton of arguing with them.

        next time they all disregard your efforts with their inane complaints, start crying, make a scene, tell them theyre never happy and they treat you like a servant then refuse to come out of your room where you have stockpiled water and food and bottles to piss in and hold out for as long as possible, preferably not coming out to cook the next day (36 hours would be ideal). this will 100% work if you're a woman, I'd estimate 70% if you're a man especially if younger. do not respond to their texts until it goes without saying. I did this to make my dad stop being so invasive of my privacy and it started a long series of changes, he is a completely different person now. they need that long without you to go through the motions of blame before finally evaluating their own behaviour. you can spend the time also preparing responses for the fall out. abusive families take a long time to heal and they always need "the event" that causes the start of that change.

        Well how about you get them all together and tell them how much of a pain in the ass they're all being. Then tell them to agree on some meals, then cook for them 3 or 4 nights a week. All of you need to grow the frick up.

    Yeah. My parents did that with my older siblings and they left the house as soon as they turned 18 and barely talked to him for like 5 years.
    I only stuck around because my mom probably would have killed herself because she was thinking we'd stay with her until we were ready to start our own families.
    Anyway, my dad chilled out a lot after he realized his kids hated him lol.

      Picky eaters are subhuman scum. Anyone that's a picky eater has a fundamental character flaw that will probably remain with them for the rest of their lives.

      If you are a grown adult human being and you can't just make yourself eat something you don't like because it was made for you, you are a child mentally. Only children are incapable of accepting reality for what it is and just doing what's sensible. They throw a tantrum, cry, moan, and get upset because reality doesn't reflect their idealized idea of what reality should be.

      Reminds me of what a 4 years old daughter of one of my friends said when we suggested we should start cooking dinner within the next hour:
      >"I didn't want you to say that!"

      Perfect encapsulation of a child's mind.

      Seems reasonable, less picky eaters in the world makes the world a better place.

    the frick. I could understand the bread and rice if he had crohns maybe but that's a weird mix. Especially as bread, chicken and rice are staples in med/european cuisine.

    >sibling really doesn't like onions when they can see or remotely taste it, also very picky when it comes to vegetables of any kind
    are they moronic? autistic maybe?

    To think the household I grew up in was "if you don't like it, you don't get to eat". So when I was able to cook for myself and wanted to cook things no one else would like they didn't complain, except they did find something else to eat but whatever.
    Just get your parents to subscribe to those Factor meals if they're so wealthy. That way you can get supposedly better prepared meals.
