    Depends on in what way you mean- all purpose, or just tastiest? I'm

    I would have to agree - on the basis that what other vegetable can suit
    so many recipes?

    There's really two different categories: Vegetables for cooking, and
    vegetables for eating.

    Onion for cooking, and corn or home-grown tomatoes for eating. (Queue

    You do not eat onions cooked as onions? Stuffed baked ones, boiled with
    cream, sweet and sour ones, fried ones, roasted ones or raw onion and mayo
    sandwiches?

    You are truly an idiot. All vegetables are eaten cooked or raw,
    onions especially... there are tons of onion salad recipes... raw
    onions are a common condiment... you probably have never eaten a bowl
    of chili or even a chili dawg... and you never even heard of salsa.
    There's cuke n' onion salad, orange n' onion salad, even raw onions in
    tuna salad... and I won't even mention all the ways green onions are
    eaten raw. My favorite way to eat raw onion is a big slab on a
    burger... no burgers in TX either?

    And there are many ways folks eat cooked onion on their own, from
    rings to bloomin', to caramelized, to caramelized in chicken
    schmaltz... and of course myriad pickled onions.

    As a flavoring ingredient in recipes garlic trumps onion.

    I don't think there is any single vegetable that can be crowned
    king... but if I had to choose it would be the potato. Of course most
    of the planet would choose rice. I think the king of vegetables in
    Texas would be Coors.

    Now, Sheldon. Coors is what-rice? And Coors light is nothing more than mere
    beer-flavored water.

    The king of veggies would have to be the tomato-red, yellow, orange,
    green-all of the above-what? Versatile and goes with almost
    anything-especially raw.

    Don't be dissin' the silver bullet. Whenever I drink it hoardes of scantily
    clad babes pour out of the woodwork. YMMV.

    Nope. I've never stuffed an onion. Could you point me to a simple
    one to start with? Don't like the little ones that are often served
    with thanksgiving dinner here in the US, and not familiar with sweet
    and sour. Will add them to sandwiches and salads, cut up. And
    caramelized as often as I have the time<g>.

    The easiest recipe is to parboil biggish onions, then remove the centers.
    Chop that core up and add it to a favorite stuffing receipe just like you'd
    use for a chicken. Arrange the onion shells in a flat baking dish that is
    well oiled. Stuff the stuffing in the onions. Toss any extra around the
    onions. Use either vegetable broth or white wine on the bottom of the dish
    and bake at about 325 for 30-45 minutes. You can also sprinkle with grated
    hard cheese, or chopped nuts or minced herbs. There's no rule. Except for
    very high temps, the temp can be that of some other food you are roasting
    and you just adjust the time.

    In that instance, I'd vote garlic.
