We all know that broccoli is good for us, but it has also gained infamy for being an unappealingly bitter tasting vegetable. Broccolini, which has longer, more slender stems than broccoli and tastes milder, with a hint of sweetness is a great alternative. Like broccoli, broccolini is a great source of vitamins A, C and K. Its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and detoxifying qualities make it a powerful cancer-fighting food. It’s also great for your eyes and skin.
Pick uniformly coloured, dark green broccolini florets. They shouldn’t be turning yellow and their stalks should be firm. They store well in the refrigerator and are quick and easy to prepare. Steaming them best retains their nutrients. Simply dressing them with olive oil, salt and pepper for a simple side dish. Alternatively, you can stir-fry them in a little vegetable oil and finish them off with seasoning and a drizzle of sesame oil. After they have been cooked, they can also be tossed into pasta and paired with toasted pine nuts and grated Parmesan.
Organic broccolini is available at SuperNature Forum and online.
With an earthy, sweet flavour and long tuberous root, it comes as no surprise that the parsnip is closely related to the carrot. This fleshy tuber is chock-full of vitamins, essential minerals and dietary fibre.
A sweet alternative to the regular Russet or Yukon gold, this humble root lends itself to a plethora of different cooking methods. Great as a casserole dish or simply steamed, this spud is no dud when it comes to health-boosting benefits.
An apple cucumber gets its name because of its resemblance to a green apple. It has a crispy, juicy flesh, very sweet taste, and can be eaten without peeling the skin off. After it ripens, it develops soft prickles or spines that are white.
Black Knight carrots are readily distinguishable by their ink stained skin with variegations of orange and ivory blushing through from the root's core. The flesh's colour is a contrasting warm yellow.
Higher in beta carotene, and vitamins C and A than its green counterpart, red oak lettuce also provides a good proportion of fibre, folate and minerals. Enjoy this attractive, frilly leaf in salads, sandwiches and side dishes.
