We investigated habits and food cultures of family farmers, and the preparation of unconventional vegetables (HNC). A semi-structured questionnaire was applied to farmers from six communities, as well as a participant observation technique. Data expressed by descriptive statistics. Knowledge about consumption and preparation of HNC was acquired from parents and grandparents and passed on to children and grandchildren, encouraged by their nutritional and medicinal value. The preparation techniques are similar, indicated by similar correction and cooking factors. Mustard, serralha and capiçova are prepared by dry heat and ora-pro-nobis, by mixed cooking. The results can contribute to the recovery, valorization and perpetuation of eating habits and cultures in relation to HNC.
