Beetroot is a great vegetable to make into a chutney or relish. The ruby red colour looks fantastic and when paired with the flavours of orange and ginger, you just know it’s going to taste great.

Mustard Greens

I love green veggies. Spinach, kale, broccoli, you name it, I love it! This recipe uses spinach, watercress and rocket but you can add any greens you fancy. Toasted pine nuts stirred through after wilting is a great addition too.

Mustard Roasted Beets with Maple Pecan Dressing

Beets can taste strong when eaten raw, but they mellow and are rather sweet once roasted. Add some mustard, mixed leaves and maple roasted pecans and your boring salad days are over.

Miso Chilli Wings

These chicken wings pack a punch. I’m using my favourite chilli sauce, Sriracha, to add some heat, but use whatever you can get your hands on. Anything fiery will work amazingly.
