Many good chefs are known to tinker with recipes in order to improve upon them or to overcome a missing ingredient that isn't available.  Neelix does not do this well, and in fact he finds ways to force his own versions of dishes on those he is serving, even when every part of the original recipe is available.<ref>[[VOY]] "Faces</ref>  He seems to think that no matter what he is told, his special additions are always an improvement, and he is flummoxed at the very idea that someone could dislike his new version of the dish.  This includes the addition of spices that he is constantly told that the patrons can't stand.  Even the names of his dishes reflect this attitude the best example of this being his "Even Better Than Coffee Coffee Substitute" as the name itself implies that if you don't like it there must be something wrong with you.

The ingredient in question is a rhizome called Leola Root.  As is expected, Neelix adds it into everything, sweet or savory.  He claims that the item is extremely nutritious, but seeing how it is used like ginger, his claims on the matter are ''very suspect''.  This item is so despised that the only time anyone even considered wanting to eat it is because the two of them ([[Tom Paris]] and [[Harry Kim]]) are starving in an alien prison!<ref>[[VOY]] "The Chute"</ref>
