Kohlrabi Recipes

Root Vegetable 'Crumble' with Cheesy Topping
This is a delicious recipe for baby or Chantenay carrots and other roots veggies. The secret ingredient gives it a warming kick. Make the most of your turnips, swedes, parsnips and sweet potatoes. You can also use celeriac or kohlrabi.
Greek Style Kohlrabi
In this recipe, kohlrabi is prepared "Greek-style", with fresh pears, dates and Feta cheese. It makes a great salad and works best with young kohlrabi, which are still smaller than 8cm and are less woody than the larger variety.
Funny Hurried Yummy Summer Honey Kohl Rabi Stir-Fry
A recent dilemma: 30 minutes before we have to leave the house. We're starving. We've only got odds and ends left in the fridge to use. Cue "Flight of the Bumble-Bee" and chopping for my life - it was stir fry time!

Mushroom And Winter Veg Pie
This is a real winter warming treat. The flavour from the mushrooms makes the dish, so its important to get a variety of them, with strong flavours no button mushrooms here, thank you
 
 

Celeriac Recipes

Denise Tolson's Bramley, Cox and Celeriac Dish
This recipe was provided to us by Denise Tolson (of Jerusalem Artichoke fame!). She got it from her mum. We love it because it uses not one but TWO types of apple, and unlike our other celeriac and apple recipe, this one is really quite luxurious. Enjoy!

Thanks to The Bramley Apple Information Service for the photo.
Root Vegetable 'Crumble' with Cheesy Topping
This is a delicious recipe for baby or Chantenay carrots and other roots veggies. The secret ingredient gives it a warming kick. Make the most of your turnips, swedes, parsnips and sweet potatoes. You can also use celeriac or kohlrabi.
Celeriac Soup
The flavour of this soup is subtle, but it gives you a chance to enjoy the celeriac, rather than masking its flavour.
Celeriac and Apple Bake
Celeriac can be a much-misunderstood vegetable.

Not only does it look, quite frankly, odd, but if you chop it and boil it, it looks just like potato, which can give the unsuspecting a bit of a taste shock!

This recipe uses a delicious combination of celeriac with apple, to create a sweet, warming winter bake. It's a great way of introducing celeriac to fussy eaters or just those who fancy a change.
Potato & Garlic Celeriac Mash
Using celeriac with the potatoes makes a nice change from 'just' mashed spud. Celeriac is a useful source of winter vitamins and minerals and the garlic is a known immune system booster. This is a lovely side dish, if you fancy trying something a little different.
Carrot And Celeriac Soup
The sweetness of sauted carrots and onions balance the pungence of the celeriac in this carrot and celeriac soup recipe. The coriander leaves give the finished soup a real lift, turning it into a filling autumn or winter treat.
 
 

Carrot Recipes

Satisfying Salad of Carrot, Beetroot and Balsamic Vinegar
This fabulous combo was sent into us by Karina L in New Zealand. Karina says:

"I saw a woman eating it one day and it looked scrummy so I asked her what it was. It's a very good liver cleanser, apparently!"

We love that you asked her what it was, Karina, and we're delighted that you did.
Broad Beans Quinoa
This is a delicious recipe for both broad beans and quinoa. It takes less than 15 minutes to make and works well as a delicious lunch or a summer party dish.
Sprouting Broccoli Stir Fry
This is a great way of using in-season sprouting broccoli and end-of-season, stored carrots. My favourite way of eating this is with Thai-style bean curd, but firm tofu or Halloumi cheese both work well, too. Its a really quick meal just 10 minutes yet is filling and tasty.
Spicy Butternut Squash Soup

DELICIOUSLY SPICY BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP

Butternut squash has such a sweet taste and beautiful texture and this delightfully simple recipe will make a very special ingredient even more divine, with a touch of spice!

And why not give your squash soup a twist by adding a handful of nachos and a generous sprinkling of grated cheese as a topping.

Thai Style Squash Curry
This curry is easy to make and pretty quick. Just make the paste, chop the veggies and cook it all in a wok (or large frying pan) with the coconut milk. Works well with pumpkin, too.
Mini Carrot Cakes
This carrot cake recipe takes just ½ an hour from start to eating and they're really easy to make. Kids love them and the grown-ups don't take much persuading either! So if you've got some carrots to use up, it's time to get baking. Top tip: These are great for Hallowe'en or a bonfire night party!
