That’s not to say dark coloured vegetables are the champions of the vegetable world. However, these vegetables have the upper hand when it comes to natural plant pigments such as chlorophyll and flavonoids, which give them their rich hues.
This month, we throw some light on dark green vegetables:
The love of Popeye’s life - besides Olive Oyl, of course – spinach is a chock-full of vitamins A and K, and nutrients such as folate, manganese and iron. Low in calories, add them to salads or in your favourite lasagna recipe for that extra nutrient boost.
The darling of the superfoods world, kale is a superstar when it comes to nutritional benefits. This dark leafy green is packed with goodness – lutein for eye health, antioxidants to counter cellular damage and vitamin K to fight inflammation. Kale chips, anyone?
One cup of this cruciferous vegetable offers as much vitamin C as an orange. Rich in fibre with a relative low calorie count, broccoli contains several carotenoids that supports eye health and can reduce the risk of eye-related diseases.
Spinach, kale and broccoli are now in season and available at SuperNature Forum and online. Shop now!
Celeriac has to be the unsung hero of the vegetable world, knobbly, odd-shaped and too often ignored. With a subtle, celery-like flavour and nutty overtones, you can mash and serve it with your festive roast or in soups or purees. A great alternative to s
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.
Chilli is also known as chilli peppers. The substances that give chilli their intensity when ingested or applied topically are capsaicin and several related chemicals, collectively called capsaicinoids.
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.
