We couldn’t eat all those radishes yesterday. What to do with a few leftover heritage radishes? This veegs thing…. Continue reading “Heritage Radish & White Bean Salad”

Romanesco & Broad Bean Salad

Romanesco, the beautiful broccoli from outer space.

Mesmerising geometric spirals within spirals, it is, as far as we’re concerned, proof positive of alien life and 16th century visitations to Italy, where it has been cultivated ever since.

Quantities would just get the way of this delightful dish. We’re freestylin’ here along a well trodden path and there’s something special in the way these veggies and leaves come together of their own accord, in a simple and mellow flavoured, laid back salad.

Chargrilled Broccoli & Cauliflower with Ancho Salsa Verde

Another incidentally veegs delight from Smith & Daughters in Melbourne.

While easy, we did find this recipe pretty darned involved to be honest, lots of stages. Was it worth it? Emphatically YES!

Plus, you make way more salsa verde than is needed for this dish and it makes a great marinade yada, yada. T’is a long old list of ingredients too but it’s good to go all out for a stellar dish that will impress yourself every now and again, in’t it.

It’s also great to be able to turn to the old faithfuls cabbage, cauli and broccoli when there’s not much in season, and create something so unexpected, gorgeous and substantial.  Continue reading “Chargrilled Broccoli & Cauliflower with Ancho Salsa Verde”

Kohlrabi and Apple Salad

Kohlrabi and apple salad, eh.

It’s probably now immediately apparent why we were banging on about kitchen kit yesterday.

This salad has to be one of the easiest salads ever, it’s crisp, fresh, light and delicious – and cheap as chips.

If, you have a mandolin that is. It’s possible to make this gorgeous dish without one of course, but a right old faff. See what I’m saying to ya, new avenues!

Kohlrabi is a year round vegetable, energising, and extremely good for you not to mention very tasty in its mild mannered impersonation of a radish. This combination of kohlrabi and tart granny smiths apples, with lemon zest and dill, is simply stunning to the taste buds and the eye.  Continue reading “Kohlrabi and Apple Salad”
