Vocabulary - Love those Vegetables!

This Spanish Medium Review quiz will take a look at some of the vegetables this world has to offer. After all, how many times have you been told to eat your vegetables? Probably a lot because vegetables are very healthy for you. Some vegetables even taste like sweet fruits!

In the Spanish Easy Review quiz series you learned how to say a number of different food types in Spanish, including a few vegetables like guisantes for peas, maíz for corn, brócoli for, well, broccoli, and apio for celery. Now you are about to add in a few more scrumptious vegetables! Come on – vegetables aren’t nasty or bad, especially when they are prepared right or come fresh from the garden!

There may be a few of these vegetables that might not be among your favorites but if you are ever at a Spanish restaurant, knowing these words will help you to decide what to order and what not to order.

For this quiz, however, we love ALL vegetables and we can’t wait to eat them! Therefore, the quiz will contain ten sentences with each sentence having a vegetable included. (Note that the vegetable will not be shown in all capitalized letters so you must read the sentences carefully.) Then locate the correct Spanish word that matches that vegetable, watching for spelling and whether it is singular or plural. Try to complete the quiz without looking back at the introduction for any answers!
