 Oh I feel your pain. Before I got married, my dh wouldnt touch any veggie that wasnt peas or green beans in a can. I have broadened his horizons a LOT. I would make something i know he would like and eat but also make something else i wasnt sure about...like I know he likes bacon in green beans so I put bacon in asparagus. Low and behold, he liked it. Its a slow process and you wont get him to like everything but you may get him to expand his horizons a bit. Add one spice, lightly. See how that goes.

My spouse was very picky when we met. It took me two years of hard work to undo the damage his mother did by allowing him to grow up picky.
For a week, we went to a different ethnic restaurant every day, and he was exposed to a huge variety of flavors. From there, we built on his likes

 I'm sorry. My dh will eat ANYTHING! I guess i would ask him what he likes and try and make something from there.

 Think about the dishes he does like, and play with those flavors to expand his list of acceptable foods.

I've never met a picky man when it comes to food anyway. Usually I'm the challenge lol.

I don't know. :( Maybe you could sit down with him and a recipe book, pick out some recipes, and use one basic spice, or go very light with it. Good luck!

 My DH told me when we were dating that he didn't eat any vegetables, now 13 years later, he eats everything. It's a slow process; don't get discouraged, just try a little at a time, and don't comment on it. And remember, it's his decision to eat it or not; but it's your decision on what to cook. just keep providing healthy foods.
