Another month is about to end and it's time for the Eat Your Greens Round Up for October. The challenge launched on the World Vegetarian Day and what a good month for vegetarian cooking it has been. There were once again many fabulous contributions with green vegetables, just look at those lovely bowls full of goodness! Now, let's have a closer look at the tasty recipes.
Janet from The Taste Space shared a Chickpea Chile Verde. The recipe is vegan and the dish looks just perfect and warming for this season. It contains Janet's homegrown tomatillos, hearty chickpeas and corn, and it's spiced with jalapeno, ground cumin and ground coriander.
My Eat Your Greens co-host Shaheen from Allotment 2 Kitchen posted a recipe for Tamarind Edamame, Soy and Green Beans. This is another vegan dish full of green components. It's spicy with chilli, ginger and tamarind and there are plenty of greens: green beans, garden peas, edamame and soy beans. This is another bowl that I would happily scoff instantly.
Johanna from Green Gourmet Giraffe cooked a Dal with haloumi and mint. I like this idea of combining dal with halloumi, partly because I would like to combine everything with halloumi. It may not be a traditional way of serving dal, but I can see it working very well. Johanna's Dal is vibrantly green, as it contains peas and fresh mint, and it's spiced with chilli and turmeric.
Lisa from Lisa's Kitchen shared with us Creamy Vegan Cashew Alfredo Sauce with Crispy Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Shell Pasta. There's a cunning vegan version of Alfredo sauce using cashews, nutritional yeasts and almond milk as the base. Combining roasted sprouts with pasta is another great idea. I like using Brussels sprouts as the greens, as they have now appeared in the shops here and are making me feel all Christmassy.
My own recipe for Eat Your Greens this month was a Spinach and lentil curry with coconut rice. It's a vegan dish full of spinach and green lentils decorated with fragrant fresh coriander. I really like this kind of comfort food, especially in this season.
These were the recipes for October, thank you everyone very much for taking part! Shaheen will now take over with hosting for November. Please head to her blog for more information and do take part also in November.
