Australian bush vegetables are native vegetables of Australia that were used as food by Aboriginal people. Although the Aboriginal diet was highly dependent on foods derived from plants, there are only few plants among them which would be considered vegetables by the majority of people. The best known among them are warrigal greens, which are popular in modern bushtucker and are grown in many gardens.

Some of the better-known bush vegetables are:

  • warrigal greens
  • native yams
  • bush tomatoes
  • pigface
  • pigweed
  • bush potatoes
  • yam daisy

Bush vegetables used in modern cuisine

Warrigal greens are the only bush vegetable commonly known among white people in Australia. The leaves are used as a substitute for spinach. It is the only native vegetable used by restaurants. While pigweed or purslane is known and used as a salad or vegetable in some European countries, it is not widely used in Australia.
