five seasonal veggies and how to use them

Great meals require great vegetables. And really there is no better way, than to use the ones that are in season.

We have gathered a list of five seasonal vegetables along with some suggestions for how to use them. So, it's time to fill up your fridge with seasonal veggies and start cooking.

  1. Beetroot. There are no limits for how to use beetroot in your cooking. Roasted, pickled, steamed, boiled, raw, or even used in juices and sauces. Try making patties with beetroot, a creamy beetroot hummus or a warming beetroot soup

  2. Sweet potato. This vegetable is brilliant to use in several kinds of dishes. Its taste and texture make it highly suitable in a range of everyday dishes. What about trying these loaded sweet potatoes or this quiche with sweet potato crust? 

  3. Parsnip. You probably know hasselback potatoes, but did you know that you may do the exact same with parsnips to get them roasted perfectly? We also suggest trying this creamy vegetable gratin with parsnip – it is absolutely delicious!

  4. Kale. Eat it raw or give it a quick boil. Here, we are using raw kale as the crispy element in this superfood salad. Oven-baked chips made out of kale are also worth trying! 

  5. Celeriac. It has a rich and sweet flavour and requires a shorter cooking time to get tender and delicious compared to other root vegetables. Try using it in this comforting hash with vegetables and white cheese.

20 minute dishes - the healthy way

It doesn’t have to take a whole evening to cook a delicious, healthy meal. In fact, a great meal can be made in less than twenty minutes.
Take for example the quick salmon salad, avocado and hummus flatbread, egg wrap or poke bowl with salmon.

Ready, set, cook!
