I voted for legumes only because I like all the veggies listed there. I enjoy all veggies except cooked spinach (love it raw)collards ( don't touch it with a ten foot pole). Anything else I adore.

I do love potatoes fixed in an aray of ways but I am also a huge fan of fresh asparagus......I could eat it till I make myself sick . But if I have a plate in front of me with a potato dish and fresh asparagus..........I'll go for the asparagus first.

Learn something new everyday..........I didn't know rhubarb was a veggie.....hmmmmmm!

It's easier for me to list the veges I DON'T like, because the list is shorter. We are very lucky in my part of the world, because we get a huge range of veges all year round, including a lot of Asian-type veges - bok choy, etc.

I really cannot handle pumpkin or turnips in any shape or form. And broad beans are just plain AWFUL.

I will eat a white sweet potato, or a purple one, but the yellow one is my favourite by far.

There are some veges I haven't tried, so can't comment: okra, rutabaga, kudzu and others not available in my part of the world. I survive very well without them!

Nobody has yet mentioned Fennel bulb. I like it. I can eat a lot of mushrooms, too!

Veges - gotta luv 'em!

Kudzu is a vegetable? I thought it was used for animal food.

I tried to pick all but the poll doesn't work that way....WAH!!! Would you classify tomatoes (I know, it is a fruit) in the "others" catagory?

I think if it has a seed it is a fruit.
beans are not vegetables, I don't think.
I wish I could stand parsnips, it is just about the only thing I don't like.

Corn is my all time most consumed favorite, but I wasn't sure which category it fell under, so I went with second best, squash! Mainly winter squash, and then primarily butternut or acorn. I like summer squash, and even zucchini, but those are rarely consumed as Mrs. Big Dog t'aint fond of them.

Potatoes, asparagus, corn, tomatoes (although not really a veg, as previously pointed out) are all serious contenders, but I couldn't live without leafy greens - gotta have my spinach, lettuce, etc.

I don't think I could say what my favorite is - it may change from one time to the next - anything except collards and cooked spinach.
