March is Veggie Month and we’ve got a very special challenge for you: each week challenge yourself to try a new vegetable you wouldn’t normally cook with. This is your chance to get funky and pick up a strange-looking veggie creature from the produce aisle of your grocery store. Romanesco broccoli (is this broccoli from outer space??), kohlrabi, salsify, samphire, celeriac… Local farmer’s markets are great places to find something seasonal that’s a little on the odd side.
Choose a quirky new veg to try and search for a recipe… then get cooking! Discover new flavours, new cultures and new dishes this month by trying a different new vegetable every week.
We’ll post our own veg-of-the-week ideas on Facebook every week and let’s see who can complete the challenge! Share your Veggie Challenge photos with us too. Pose with your veg, show us how you prep your veg for cooking or share a pic of the finished dish!
After all, life is too short to eat the same dishes week in and week out.
Which veggie are you going to try first?
