VEGETABLES - KNOW YOUR VEG COOKING TIPS AND TECHNIQUES

Vegetables"An onion can make people cry but there's never been a vegetable that can make people laugh.” ~ Will Rogers

Vegetable is a term which generally refers to an edible part of a plant. The definition is traditional rather than scientific and is somewhat arbitrary and subjective. All parts of herbaceous plants eaten as food by humans, whole or in part, are normally considered vegetables. Mushrooms, though belonging to the biological kingdom Fungi, are also commonly considered vegetables. In general, vegetables are thought of as being savoury, and not sweet, although there are many exceptions. Nuts, grains, herbs, spices and culinary fruits are normally not considered vegetables.
