    Good question. I'd say the ultimate vegetable is something from the green, leafy variety (lettuces, kale, swiss chard, collard greens, etc.). Why? Eaten fresh and often, they provide plenty of vitamins, minerals, fiber and other important elements. They can be eaten in all sorts of ways as they can be combined with savory and sweet foods in dishes. They are low-calorie yet nutritionally dense. They pack a punch for good health.

    Potato is a root.  There are other vegetables which have a greater presence in the dishes.  It all depends on the cuisine. What about tomato?

    This will not be a popular answer but-my favorite is Brussell Sprouts.  Butter, special seasoned salt--oh yes.  My husband hates them so I don't have to share.

    Technically Tomatoes are fruit, aren't they?

    The answer is CORN.  Corn, in all of its forms is used in almost  every edible product that is enjoyed on a daily basis in the U.S. today. Look it up.  Even the soda has corn in it.  p.s.  chickens are the ultimate animal in case you are curious.  they outnumber all other animal species.  So we live on a planet where dogs were first into space and chickens rule the land, and it's no wonder everything is so corny

    Broccoli is the ultimate vegetable.  Do some research and you'll see that it's the best food in the world.

    broccoli because it's loaded with so many good things, but taste wise, I love cold, with a little salt. Not sure why. I also love european cucumbers...the same way.

    My son is a professional chef.  He tells me that due to its vitamin, protein and good fat content that the ultimate vegetable is an avocado.

    spinach...tastes foul, but benefits the most (raw with balsamic dressing is tolerable)
