Must be the potato?

Has a vegetable ever been so versatile, chipped, roasted, mashed, sliced, jacket, boiled, baked?

Goes with everything, but like the village tart, you can never get enough.

Fancy places try to supplant it, by offering crisps made of turnip, Butternut Squash and Parsnip, but you and I both know that the humble tata knocks the competition into a cocked hat!

Potatoes are tubers. Not vegetables. :whistle:

In what way is it a false veg?

I must have missed the potato animals roaming the plains!

I just know it doesn't count towards you 5 a day.

Surely we can't relegate the potato to the status of a mere vegetable. I don't care what the botanists say! Rice and pasta can **** off too, just second-rate potato substitutes when you think about it. Physical assault is the only appropriate response to someone who offers you a butternut squash crisp.

Can someone provide a list of vegetables please. Is lettuce a vegetable? Aubergine? Sweet potato? Squash? Sweet corn? Cucumber? Pepper? Chilli?
