In brief: Not many
Vegetables, as a rule, are a lousy vitamin d source.
The best vitamin d comes from your skin when it's exposed to sunlight. The best source of dietary vitamin d is cold water fish. Further, whether vegetable derived vitamin d (d2) does the same thing as that which comes from animal sources (d3) is still a matter of dispute. Many vitamin d experts think that it does not.

In brief: Rare, try these
The flesh of fatty fish (such as salmon, tuna, and mackerel) and fish liver oils are among the best sources.
Small amounts of vitamin d are found in beef liver, cheese, and egg yolks. Some mushrooms provide vitamin d2 in variable amounts. Ready-to-eat breakfast cereals often contain added vitamin d, as do some brands of orange juice, yogurt, margarine and other food products.
