In this category you will find recipes that contain vegetables as an important ingredient. Some of the recipes might be strange or unusual but hopefully they will give you some ideas and inspiration.
Buying vegetables: All vegetables should be firm to the touch, not limp. When you can try to buy vegetables with the stem or green part attached.
Organic: Try to buy organic bell peppers, celery, spinach, lettuce and potatoes as when non-organically grown these have the highest percentage of pesticide residues.
Non-organic: If you are on a budget, buy non-organic onions, sweet corn, asparagus, sweet peas, cabbage and broccoli as these are low in pesticides, even when grown conventionally.
Storage: Most vegetables store well in a refrigerator. Some vegetables such as broccoli, root vegetables such as carrots and parsnips benefit from storing by standing in water as this seems to prevent them from going limp.
Grow your own: If you have the opportunity then grow your own vegetables. Choose varieties that are hard to obtain from conventional stores such as exotic squashes or the wonderful sungold tomato.
