Loving your veggies!

On Christmas Eve I went veggie shopping. My mind went completely blank having picked up the obligatory sprouts and red cabbage. So I bought one of everything. And we ate most of them.

But what to do with the odds and ends, a bag of parsnips and a celeriac now that everyone has gone.

This is my solution. First off Parsnip soup. Recipe can be found here

and blended ready to eat- it is lovely- really can taste the parsnips.

Then came Spiced Root vegetables stew


Fry 1 onion till soft- about 5 minutes.

Then add whatever you have left over- in my case

2 parsnips

1 carrot

1/3rd of a swede

2 sweet potatoes

2 potatoes

Cook with the onion for a couple of minutes

Add I level tablespoon each of cumin, coriander and turmeric- I had a tiny bit of ginger left over so that went in grated for good measure.

Make sure the veggies are all coated in the spices and cook for another couple of minutes.

Add 1 tin of chopped tomatoes- 400g and 1 tin of chick peas- 4oog and 1/2 pint of veggie stock. Simmer for an hour, thus

So that’s dinner tonight and lunch tomorrow taken care of.

The celeriac is now  being turned into Celeriac and Pear soup- recipe here

I think that has to be lunch for me  today.

And  now all that’s left in my veggie rack is one lonely little onion.
