    Well, as well as tomatoes of course. What is wrong with onions, cooking them ruins the taste.

    Beans are actually pulses
    Fruit - in its strict botanical sense, the fleshy or dry ripened ovary of a plant, enclosing the seed or seeds. Thus, apricots, bananas, and grapes, as well as bean pods, corn grains, tomatoes, cucumbers, and (in their shells) acorns and almonds, are all technically fruits.
    This definition of fruit is very broad, and encompasses almost everything that contains seeds.


    Vegetables. This includes: Root crops like potatoes, carrots and turnips
    Bulbs like onions and garlic
    Stems like asparagus
    Leaves like lettuce and cabbage
    Flowers like broccoli and cauliflower

    This is because the fruit is actually the seed padding.
