With Winter in our midst, boosting your immune system assists in forming a barrier against those nasty colds and flus. How else but with the help of some flavoursome veggies?
Preparing vegetables can often be complicated for people, keeping in mind that they have to look visually appealing and freshness should still be evident in their taste.
Not only do they offer health benefits, but add wholesomeness to any dish. On their own they are great in any way: baked, fried or served with a delicious dressing or sauce.
Here's a list of recipes that celebrate vegetables!
Pumpkin - Thai pumpkin soup
Sweet potato - Spicy sweet potato and leek soup
Butternut - Roast butternut and lentil bobotie
Carrots - Tandoori roasted carrots
Broccoli - Lemon, ricotta and broccoli pasta
Cauliflower - Roasted cauliflower mac and cheese
Sweet potato and peas - Cabbage and pancetta with peas and mint (leave out the pancetta to make the dish vegetarian)
Spinach - Smoked snoek and spinach phyllo pie
