Well, "vegetable" refers to the edible parts of a plant, exclusive of the reproductive bits (those are "fruit").  Since mushrooms are fungi, mushrooms are not plants.  Therefore, they are clearly not parts of plants...and thus, mushrooms are not vegetables.  The only way a mushroom can be a vegetable is to redefine the word "vegetable" or redefine the membership of the kingdom of plants to include fungus.


So who is the name of this king who rules the kingdom of plants?
Or is this a fictional kingdom like in Lord of The Rings?

Instead of King of plants. try the king of fruits, ie. the Durian. I personally enjoy this fruit very much

By the way, from a nutritionnal pov, mushrooms are low fiber (contrary to vegetables), usually full of minerals, vitamins and other good stuffs, low in calories, so, they are what can be called 'health food'.
