Spring on your plate..

After last week’s experiments with the lovely vegetables in my veg box delivery, I have followed one of my own recipes a few more times since as it was so good!!! My shawarma vegetables were so tasty, that I’ve replicated it with various different mixes of vegetables, and have found that it has worked every time.  

 The mix of spices with the olive oil and lemon juice is so fresh and flavoursome that I’ve eaten it salted but also eaten it raw, it makes a great salad 🙂

This week I had kale in the veg box so the dish contained red onion, leek, slivers of carrot and kale, along with the cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon, salt, pepper, olive oil and lemon juice.   

Just gorgeous!

On seeing the photos of my first vegetable box, Suzanne had told me about recipes using the green carrot tops, so this week I threw them in too and sautéed them along with everything else.   

    It came out nicely and great to use even more of the produce. 

   And of course, even better topped with tahini sauce!  

Last week I had slightly different items in the box, which lead to this creation…yum…

Really I just wanted to treat you to a page full of fresh, beautiful, colourful vegetables!! What a great welcome to spring hey?!

I hope your week is starting well, check back on Wednesday to read a very special edition of ‘What would you feed me?’ this week xx

    I love your posts and I love a kindred spirit who gets excited about beautiful vegetables. I drool over your site more often then the over-the-top dessert and fried food posts. – by far! I’m behind in posting recipes but I’m still eating my veggies.
    Be well,

      Thank you so much for your lovely words, they mean so much to me 🙂 I’m always aware that blogs full of desserts and cakes and sweet things are so much more popular than one full of vegetables so your words are very welcome, thank you xx
