Can a solid, no matter how small, even a single cell, be evaporated with water vapor from a pool of water?
Yes. In a partially frozen pond of water, any surface of ice exposed to the air will undergo gross vaporization and any surface of water exposed to the air will do the same. Whether there will be net vaporization depends upon the ambient vapor pressure and the two equilibrium vapor pressures--over ice and over water.
