Can you compost any cooked vegetables or rice if they have been cooked in only water and not had anything added to them?

Most certainly, toss it in!

Even if the veggies or rice has stuff like butter and salt in it, just rinse it really well and you can toss that in too.
After eating corn-on-the-cob several times last year, I would rinse the butter and salt off them and toss them into the compost.
As a matter of fact, when I forked around my compost 2 weeks ago, I didn't see one cob. What a Face

I don't even bother rinsing it as my water is pretty expensive right now. Seriously, if it's not meat, bones, animal fat or plastic, into the compost bin it goes. What a Face

I compost cooked rice, but I don't add any salt to it for cooking either(not that the amount of salt normally added would make that much of a difference after sitting through some rains). I don't compost any cooked veggies because there are never any left over to cook! But if there were, then I would(unless I added cheese to it, like broccoli or cauliflower...mmm..cauliflower with a good cheese sauce sounds good right now).

You'd compost a butter-soaked corncob?

Well I always just assumed that the butter would have to be rinsed. Interesting What a Face

I would, too, if it's encircled and there aren't any raccoons around...or if I had attached the thing to the ground somehow.

Corn cobs are not usually butter soaked because you have eaten most of it off.

Not really Too Tall Tomatoes, the saliva left on the corn cobs after eating them with break down most of what's left on a corn cob.

Sure, but with a nice sized pile, I can't imagine the little bit of butter is going to have much affect.

I do actually put spoiled milk and cheese rinds into the compost, no problems and it adds calcium. Good for the teeth What a Face

I can't imagine bits of butter having any effect either. I just rinsed the cob off just because. Like I said before, my pile must've been cooking along great because the last time I tossed it around, there was not one corn cob to be found.

And camprn, I would imagine that if you bury dairy products under a lot of manure, no animal is going to smell it.

Me too. In fact in the summer when I have to water the pile I use extra goat milk sometimes to water it. Saves water and adds calcium. My dogs can't get into my pile and they keep everything else away.
