Eat Your Greens August Round Up

August is almost over so it's time to look at your Eat Your Greens recipes in August.

Shaheen from Allotment 2 Kitchen and my Eat Your Greens co-host made a tempting Crushed Potato, Courgette and Feta Salad. She roasted new potatoes, round courgette, yellow courgette and beans with olive oil, and then added peas, parsley, feta and salt and pepper for some further baking. This combination of several greens sounds so wonderful and is even better when made with homegrown produce.

Laura from Vegfully cooked a refreshing Courgette and mint soup. She sautéed leeks and garlic in a pan, added celery, courgettes, seasoning and vegetable stock. After cooking for a while, the ingredients were blended in a smooth soup and fresh mint, feta, pepper and olive oil were added for serving. This sounds like a perfect summer soup to me and I would be happy to eat it anytime.

Lisa from Lisa's Kitchen shared a wonderful dish of Asparagus and Peas in a Creamy Mustard Sauce. She combined the slightly more unusual vegetable, asparagus, with Indian flavours. There is a creamy mustard sauce with ginger, chillies, cumin seeds, turmeric, coconut milk and lemon juice with pan-fried asparagus and green peas. I'm sure that asparagus works very well with Indian spices and I'm very intrigued by this dish.

My own recipe this month was a Spanakopita with crispy filo pastry, spinach and feta. It's also a nice piece of summer baking and really addictive.

Thank you again to all participants and readers. It was such a nice month of green food, and there will be more in September when Shaheen will be hosting again. I hope to see you all then.

Have a nice weekend all!

  1. Thank you so much for hosting VegHog and the contributors for sharing their wonderfully green dishes. I am liking them all, from your savoury spanakopita, Laura's courgette and mint soup to Lisa's mustardy asparagus. All good. Hope your having a good weekend.The sun is playing with us today, popping in and out.

    1. Thank you also for your lovely contribution, and I couldn't agree with you more that all recipes shared were absolutely great.
      We are having some really hot weather here this week, sunny and around +27C. I'm quite frankly ready for the autumn.
      Have a nice weekend too!

  2. That's a beautiful collection of recipes for green foods! So sad that summer is ending up here in this hemisphere.
