Recipes Using Autumn Vegetables from Goldbush Micro Farm

You have four yummy recipes here using what is in the Vege Bag for 3rd May.

Of course, you can use these any time and with vegetables you've grown yourself or from supermarket vegetables.

Here are the recipes you'll find below:

  1. Carrot and Sweet Pepper Curry

  2. Spinach and Rainbow Chard Quiche

  3. Green Bean Salad with Mustard Dressing

  4. Spinach and Sorrel Pesto Pasta

All four of these recipes are simple and easy, they rely on the delicious flavour of the vegetables themselves, you are welcome to add extra herbs and spices though to make them more fancy!

Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion, sweet pepper, and carrots. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Add the garlic and curry powder and cook for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant. Pour in the coconut milk and vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the sauce has thickened slightly and the vegetables are tender. Season with salt to taste. Serve over rice.
