Carrots. I <3 them.  :D

Do potatoes count?  I've heard yes & I've heard no.

If potatoes count, then by all means, potatoes rule all vegetables.  They are God's Gift To His People.  The only possible way to ruin potatoes is by making potato salad, because mayonnaise is pure, bottled, Evil.

Baked potatoes, boiled potatoes, french fried potatoes, hash browns, mashed potatoes, potato skins, waffle fries, scalloped potatoes, potatoes au gratin, potato soup, tater tots, etc., etc.

Mmmmmm...

For the purposes of this thread, I think we can even admit tomatoes.

Anyways, I'd have to say I'm a fan of broccoli.

Oh, oh, and I'd also like to warn everyone that celery is outlawed, on account of it being an offensive weapon.

Carrots are good.  Broccoli, squash, onions, mushrooms... OK, I'm pushing it. 

But peas.  They're like little balls of sunshine.  If the sun were green.  And not shiny.

Broccoli, chard, kale, bell peppers, carrots, onions, spinach, salad greens of all kinds, radishes, tomatoes, mushrooms (yesyes, fungus, I know), snap peas, green beans, potatoes, sweet potatoes....

Just as long as they're not overcooked.

Have you tried French potatoe salad? Can be very nice, and no mayo as far as the eye can see.

Cucumbers are the only raw vegetables I can eat, but I like almost everything else when it's boiled.

I am not a carrot fan... Potatoes are nice, as are peppers and tomatoes depending on what we're counting.

I am surprised, nay, astounded, that nobody has yet mentioned squash or corn. Butternut squash with maple syrup, butter, salt and pepper is nectar of the gods, no other way to describe it. Nothing beats a locally grown corn on the cob in the summer. Both superb vegetables.

Asparagus, all you have to do is drizzle a little olive oil on them, season w/ salt and pepper, and roast them in the oven.

Delicious!

Corn is alright but not at the top of the list like green peas.

Whole leaf spinach is definitely my favorite. I enjoy spinach salad. I like most vegetables, especially when they are raw.

Easier by far for me to say which vegetables I cannot stand. Top of that list would be brussel sprouts. Those things can be used for torture. :-X

Onion, but only if it's cooked in some manner. Raw makes my tummy hurt. Potatoes are good too.

Ah, yes, how could I forget that one? I love saag paneer at Indian restaurants. :D (Spinach with cottage cheese, for those who don't frequent such places much.)

I am astounded by how many people actually like veggies!  Me, I'm really a fruit-lover.  I just eat my veggies (only raw) because my doctor told me my spleen would explode if I don't eat them. ::)

I only like most veggies if they haven't been cooked to mush.  Potatoes of course are an exception as I LOVE mashed potatoes.

I prefer summer squash to winter squash, but corn on the cob is indeed awesome.

Asparagus is also excellent. I prefer it very lightly steamed, with a tomato dressing. Stir-fried with mushrooms and garlic is good too though.

I'll have to give two answers, as I can't seem to chose between them: potato and beetroot.

I like barley.  And hops.  With a little yeast.  Aged.
