Eat Your Greens October Round Up

October went by pretty quickly, didn’t it? I can’t believe that today is already the last day, and there are little witches and ghosts roaming in the streets. Unfortunately our doorbell has been malfunctioning for quite a while now, due to be repaired only towards end of November, so the little tricksters and treaters won’t be able to access the premises.

Anyway, this post is now about Eat Your Greens and the recipes shared with the challenge in October.

My Eat Your Greens co-host Shaheen from Allotment 2 Kitchen cooked a Vegetable Tagine. The tagine was made with homegrown courgettes, carrots, potatoes, sweet potato, chickpeas and dried fruit, and served with couscous on the side. Oh, how I would love to eat a vegetable tagine right now, as it has been quite chilly this week, and those spices would surely warm me up!

Johanna from Green Gourmet Giraffe shared a Mediterranean pumpkin and chickpea salad. This salad is so colourful and it features roasted pumpkin, red cabbage and red capsicum with dukkah, served on a bed of spinach with additional chickpeas and tzatziki. It sounds like a great combination, and I’m welcoming all pumpkin dishes at the moment.

My own October recipe was a Pattypan squash and broccoli green curry. A Thai green curry is such comfort food for me. I made this one with of course a green curry paste, pattypan squash, tenderstem broccoli, spinach and fried pieces of that “oat tofu”.

So my friends, this was my last time hosting Eat Your Greens and I would like to take a moment to thank all of you great contributors and readers over the years. It has truly been a great time being part of this challenge and getting know so many nice bloggers around the world. Shaheen will be hosting next month, so I hope that we will see many of your contributions there again!

Glad to see my salad in such fine company for your final round up - I really admire how you made green curries often - and I adore all the effort and good will you have put into Eat Your Greens - thanks for all the entertaining and friendly hosting!

    1. Yes it's quite sad to end the event after so many years. I would like to thank you for being an active participant in Eat Your Greens, and hopefully still in the last edition in November. I will of course keep blogging and visiting your blog, so no changes there.


Thanks for reading! I would very much appreciate any comments or suggestions from you.
