Vegetables<br />The noun vegetable usually means an edible plant or part of a plant other than a sweet fruit or seed.<br />Some vegetables can be consumed raw, and some may (or must) be cooked in various ways, most often in non-sweet (savoury or salty) dishes. However, a few vegetables are often used in desserts and other sweet dishes, such as rhubarb pies and carrot cakes.<br />
