Vegetable Update Part 1

Since I posted at the start of March about wanting to eat more veg we've eaten a LOT of different vegetable dishes. Here's a rundown on the first 5 things we've tried with links to the recipes.

Honey Glazed Carrots


Delicious but weirdly sweet to eat with savoury food. It seems like a very American dish to me so unsurprisingly JD loved them.


Crispy Dijon Smashed Potatoes


Lovely mustardy potatoes baked in the oven. We really liked them. Yes, we're counting potatoes as vegetables even though we eat plenty of them.


Pumpkin Bread



Vegetables with ice cream? I guess we've lost the plot a bit but this recipe looked too good to resist. We all enjoyed this, even the kids when I told them it had pumpkin in it. JD said it wasn't as sweet as American versions he's had before so its healthier than that at least. :D


Stir-fried Greens


I love greens and these were particularly flavourful with garlic, chilli flakes and pinenuts. Perfect to go with fried chicken and cornbread.


Spicy Lemon Cauliflower


Thinly sliced cauliflower roasted with lemon and chilli flakes. It was unusual but not un-delicious.


Many more recipes to come as we continue our vegetable eating journey :)
