While it is possible for many plants to grow in mulch, vegetables (especially those in containers) require specific nutrients that may not be present in the mulch alone. I would at least mix in some soil with the mulch. Of course, you could always experiment. Try growing some with only mulch and others with soil or soil/mulch mix.
