In this post, we’ll be showing you seven vegetables that start with E. We’ve gathered every single one we can find into one convenient spot…
1. Earthnut Pea
The earthnut pea can be found in Europe and some of the westernmost parts of Asia. It’s packed full of nutrients, with more vitamin C than lemons and plenty of calcium, to boot.
If you’ve eaten a lot of Japanese food before, then you’ve probably encountered edamame. These bright green pods and beans are treated just like any other bean when it comes to cooking.
Eggplant (also known as aubergine in the UK) is technically a berry, but because it’s treated like a vegetable in cooking, it made our list. This plant is commonly known as being glossy and purple, but can actually come in other colors like pink and white.

4. Elephant Foot Yam
Elephant foot yam is a tuber that’s popular in many Asian countries. You can mash it, fry it, or use it to make a delicious curry.
5. Elephant Garlic
Elephant garlic might have gotten its name from the fact that it grows in particularly large bulbs. Its flavor is like the garlic we all know and love, but a bit milder, making it better for people who don’t usually like the intensity of garlic.
Endive is a leafy green with a bitter taste. It’s full of vitamins like A and K, and also provides an excellent source of fiber.
Escarole is actually a type of endive. If you don’t like bitterness much, you might like escarole more, because its flavor is milder.
You can read more about its taste and how to use it in our guide to what escarole tastes like.
