Easy Vegetable Recipes to the rescue!

Easy Vegetable Recipes I have plenty of! Why? Because they are easy and uncomplicated, as vegetable recipes should be! I hear so often parents complain, “My children do not eat vegetables, they refuse to eat this and that…..”! My husband was like that? My children ate vegetables from such a young age, that for them it was just the most natural thing to do! I think WE, as mothers are the reason our children loathe some vegetables so much! WE COOK IT TO DEATH! At the top of the Cook-to-death-vegetable list is Brussel Sprouts! Who remembers the mushy, grey-green lumps, or pale orange carrots, not to mention over-cooked green beans!

When cooking vegetables, I like to keep it simple , so I’ve put together a list of my favorite easy vegetable recipes for you!


Tomorrow morning Jaco Brand from Picardi Place will be my guest on RSG.He will explain the concept of Perm Culture and how easy it is to set up this sustainable vegetable garden in your own garden. I cannot wait to learn more about this amazing concept! If you have not been to Picardi Place, make a booking NOW. Jaco does pasta making courses in true Italian fashion and I hear his carrot cake, served at his little vintage furniture store, Tuka, is legendary!

Roast vegetables

There are a few pitfalls when it comes to roasting vegetables – I have handled most of the them and you will see it is not at all difficult!

Fresh vegetables for roasting

Keep it fresh

Obviously raw vegetables will have the most nutritional value and the longer you cook or steam it, the more you will lose not only flavor, but also valuable nutritional value. So eat raw where you can, steam or blanche  for only a few minutes in boiling water.

Variety is the spice of life!

Never underestimate your family’s palates. Try new vegetables dit do it in a fun way, smaller portions. These Thai Salad Rolls are our favorite meal to eat in summer when it is too hot to cook!

Easy Vegetable recipes

Comfort food

Yes, even vegetables can be comforting! My children know when they visit Ouma Tina, she makes Green Bean Stew and they love it! A Fragrant Tomato Soup with West Coast Mussels are just the perfect antidote to winter and it really is just the flavor of the ripe tomatoes doing the trick….nothing fancy!
