The Vegetables ClipArt gallery offers 265 illustrations of edible product of plants that are often cooked, but can be eaten raw. Vegetables are mostly regarded as the plant products that are suitable for savory or salted dishes, rather than sweet dishes, which would use the sweeter fruits. Examples in this gallery include: artichoke, asparagus, beans, beets, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflowers, celery, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, kale, leeks, lettuce, onions, parsnip, peas, peppers, potatoes, pumpkins, radishes, rhubarb, turnips, squash, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, turnips, and yams

All illustrations in the ClipArt ETC collection are line drawings. If you are looking for color photographs of vegetables, please visit the ClipPix ETC website.
