This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Ooh, you changed it. Now it's about verb agreement. So you're no longer interested whether the noun (apple) should be singular or plural? Please clarify. And please fix the spelling of "favorite"(US spelling) – Mari-Lou A Apr 30 '18 at 16:57
  • Of course it's okay! Everyone has a favorite food :) (Disclaimer, because this is the Internet: this is a joke.) – AleksandrH Apr 30 '18 at 17:23
  • My favorite is plural noun is it ok? – SAM May 1 '18 at 2:08
  • This question is asking how 'my favorite X' should handle an uncountable category (subject) but a countable answer (object). 'I like apple(s)' is a rephrase of this question; it's the correct answer as far as getting around the question; but isn't a duplicate of it. – lly Jun 15 '18 at 20:02

Food is singular; foods is plural. So, "My favorite food is apple, and my favorite foods are apples and oranges."

  • Or even "My favorite food is apples and oranges", if it's taken to mean a literal dish of apple and orange slices, for example. – AleksandrH Apr 30 '18 at 17:25
