Most vegetables I like it cooked or raw, the ones I definetely prefer cooked are broccoli, onions, zucchini, aubergene...and erm, I don't think artichokes are edible raw...
On the contrary, I can't imagine cooking cucumbers or any salad greens...

Ah!! I didn't consider spinach as a salad green, as I use it in cooking more often than in salads... never tried it fried but that sound delicious

Like most veggies raw including turnips, potatoes, carrots, parsnips, spinach, lettuce, cabbage, asparagus, you name it.

Also like to eat raw many of those fruits that are technically ftruits but are treated like veggies, such as zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes, squash, pumpkin, and the list goes on.

Why I always get filled up in the kitchen. Cutting up the veggies requires a bit of a taste. And by the time dinner is cooked, well, my belly is full.

Oh I love raw veggies! Well, except potatoes or like urmaniac said, artichokes.....best left cooked! But, ur, I have a recipe for cooked cukes! It's a polish one, and it calls for halving them lengthwise, scooping out the seeds and filling the little tunnel with a mixture (kind of like a stuffing) of tomatoes, bread and onions, I think. I've never made it, but have looked at it now and then.

I love raw sugar snap peas. Ahhhh! Even raw corn is so sweet and tasty. I love making veggie plates with as many colors as I can find.

I love grated raw carrot, especially if there's some cheese or grated raw zucchini mixed into it.

I often use raw zucchini instead of cucumber in a tossed salad, sliced in the same way.

A little raw beetroot grated into a salad is a nice flavour change. Of course, I'll toss in a few beetroot greens, too. Especially nice with a few mustard greens added.

I like very finely sliced raw onion in a salad, too. And I like a little grated raw onion in mashed potatoes, or with sardines on a sandwich.

Raw cauliflower and broccoli and carrot and zucchini sticks are great with dips.

Raw cabbage of course, in coleslaw.

Raw capsicum in salads.

Raw mushrooms in salads. They're especially nice as a separate side-salad if marinated in French Dressing.

Raw spinach or silverbeet or any of the Asian greens are great in salads. Kangkong has a nice, sweet flavour. My son won't eat cooked spinach, but loves my spinach salad - just chopped spinach, finely chopped celery and onion, some cooked bacon, crumbled, and some French Dressing. Perhaps some cherry tomatoes for colour.

A raw fennel bulb (or part thereof) is nice grated into a salad, too.

I'll go with carrots, tomatoes (in a sandwich or pizza), pickles, olives and
bell peppers. I'm sure there are more I'm not thinking of.
We make good food, great. TM

Carrots. I don't like them cooked (unless pureed with olives).
And does garlic count as a vegetable? I think I eat enough of it for it to be...

I don't like raw tomatoes though.
