Welcome to Decembers round up of Eat Your Greens and The Vegetable Palette: natures colours - natures goodness''.
Please note that this will be the last Vegetable Palette. I would like to Thank those of you who have participated and support the blog challenge over the past two years. Please don't be sad though, you can still participate as The Eat Your Greens challenge continues.
The theme for December was Wonderful Greens.
I begin with The Law Students Cookbook who presents us with a Falafel Burger with Guacamole. Avocado - natures natural green butter.
Next we have The Veg Hog who shares with us her Twice Cooked Broccoli Pasta. The broccoli is first boiled and then pan fried for crispness enhanced further with chilli and garlic. The VegHog uses Spelt tagliatelle here, but I guess you can use any pasta in your kitchen cupboards.
For The Vegetable Palette, the VegHog shares with us a Flower Sprout Pie. So what is a Flower Sprout? Its a cross between Brussels Sprouts and Kale. I wouldn't mind a slice of this right now.
The VegHog was not the only one cooking with Flower Sprouts as they found there way into my kitchen too. Here they are stirred into my bowl of Kale and Hazelnut Pesto Pasta.
And if you thought, No - NO MORE SPROUTS, well I have some more as Chardonnay and Samphire presents us with some Sprouts with Chestnut Butter. Yes I said Chestnut Butter - how awesome and so seasonal is that. And guess what, its vegan too. You should also check out her Chestnut, Celeriac and Mushroom Tart - its earthy.
And finally and never least, Dom from Belleau Kitchen brings to the table a pot of Broccoli, Green Bean, Sweetcorn and Cabbage Soup. Dom describes it as a vegetarian version of the Jewish Penicillin Chicken Soup. If it has helped his cold, who am I to argue - except please pass me over a bowl because the rain is getting to me and I have the sniffles coming on.
