I'd say yes, but i'm yet to find someone who agrees.

they are considering that Vegetables is a general term for any plant that produces food.
specifically potatoes are a root

I think so.

That's what i would say, but a bunch of people claim it's a Carbohydrate.

I'm just really wanting to claim that chips/fries are in some way healthy

They're tubers, and tubers aren't neccesarily vegetables

Potatoes are vegetables. Tomatoes though, are another story.

Yes they are.... it wouldn't make sense in any other category. >_>

I consider potatoes to be a starch.  Tomatoes are vegetables in my opinion, since they are used in the same way traditional vegetables are.  Potatoes are not.

Well they're tubers. But I'd be willing to consider them vegetables.

My first reaction would be to call it a starch, but really, if carrots are a vegtable, then so are potatoes.

#15 Posted by VeiledMuffin (214 posts) -

I'd say so.

You cannot call a potato a starch or a carbohydrate, because those are in it as well as other molecules that make up the vegetable. I honestly don't understand why people call it those...

Even though they might technically be vegetables, I don't treat them like they are. Because I like potatoes.
