Here comes the September Eat Your Greens round up, and it's looking good and green! I thought that there was a wonderful variety of dishes shared again with the challenge, and I would really like to try each one of them.
Helen from Roast Chicken and Country Walk blog shared a Carrot and courgette salad. The salad contained roasted local courgettes, fresh carrot, spinach, watercress, rocket and tomatoes. I especially like the fact that the courgette pieces are roasted, which is always nice in a fresh salad. This salad would go nicely on the side of so many dishes.
My Eat Your Greens co-host Shaheen from Allotment 2 Kitchen posted a vegan dish Cajun Black Eyed Peas with Summer Vegetables. The seasonal courgette is the green in this dish, and it also contains a lot of other summer vegetables like sweetcorn and peppers. It's a comforting looking spicy bowl with cajun seasoning, chilli and black eyed peas. I would happily scoff this bowl of food.
Johanna from Green Gourmet Giraffe shared a recipe for vegan Cauliflower ceviche tacos. This plate looks so beautiful, and as a fan of veggie tacos I would really want to try these. There are plenty of greens in them: green capsicum, chives, parsley, lime juice and avocado. Johanna has been taking part in Vegan MoFo, Vegan Month of Food, in September and has shared some amazing vegan creations along the way, so it's worth to have a browse in her blog.
Sharon from Not just a load of lentils blog submitted a creative Green Shakshuka recipe. This recipe has so many greens in it, it's incredible. There are leeks, celery, green beans, green capsicum, spinach, spring onion, swiss chard, mint, parsley, rocket and green olives. I've never had shakshuka, but this one looks so tempting that I will have to try to make it.
My own contribution was a recipe for Savoy cabbage roulades. I made vegan Finnish style cabbage roulades from savoy cabbage by adding black treacle on top for some sweetness. The filling was a savoury rice and lentil mix spiced with a new Cabbage Karma spice blend.
Thank you everyone so much for your tasty and healthy contributions! I look forward to seeing you in October, when Shaheen will be hosting the challenge.
Have a nice Sunday!
