Spaghetti Alfredo with roasted vegetables from PlantPure Nation Cookbook - one of my very favourite recipe books. Buy it and have a look.
Onion, leeks, garlic (lots), grated fresh ginger, carrots, butter beans, turmeric, cabbage, fennel, kale, spinach and salt and pepper with vegetable stock. Warming and delicious. Serve with crusty home baked bread.
Just purchased a Foodsaver Vacuum Sealer from Lakeland, hopefully it will free up space to freeze veggies for the winter.
There's an answer to the glut of beetroot! Two large beetroot, three carrots, two sticks celery, one large potato, one onion, two cloves garlic, vegetable stock, tomato puree and salt and pepper. Garnish with a swirl of yogurt and a sprinkle of fresh dill. Delicious beetroot soup.
Made a big family curry yesterday and to eke out the leftovers today, I made a dal. Red lentils, veggie stock, potato (also had some cold leftover potatoes that I added,) sautéed onions, tomato and garlic (in broth, not oil) added them to the lentil/potato mixture and then put in ground coriander, turmeric, garam masala, mild curry powder and salt and pepper. Then threw in a couple of handfuls of Russian kale. Will serve it with a sprinkle of lemon juice and jalapeño peppers from the garden.
Since moving to Derbyshire two years ago, and having the opportunity to study a Vegetarian and Vegan Nutritional Therapy course - as well as the work of T. Colin Campbell, Dr Caldwell Esselstyn, Dr John McDougall, Neal Barnard, Dean Ornish and others - I've drastically reduced all oils from my diet. From now on recipes will be free of any produced oils, only getting essential fats from foods such as nuts, seeds and avocados.
We're lucky to have enough land to provide us with plenty of fresh produce and each year so far we've expanded the vegetable patch. As complete novices in the gardening world, it's been a learning curve, but the food is delicious.
A good way to use fresh produce is to have veggies for breakfast - shown here, onion, tomato, mushroom and kale with a splash of tamari and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast. Yum!
