English word lists 1.

Word group to learn: vegetables.

Useful English words and collocations on vegetables.

Vegetables or often called "veg" (BrE) or "veggie" (AmE) is a part of a plant which is edible but not the fruit of the plant. So a tomato is really a fruit but when it's in the kitchen we often call it a vegetable because it's used in salads and dishes with other vegetables. Vegetables are usually used for savoury dishes but some can be used for sweet dishes or desserts too such as pumpkin pie or carrot cake. In the UK a balanced meal is said to be meat or fish and two vegetables. Many vegetables can be eaten raw or cooked.
