VEGETABLES

Vegetables


The word vegetable usually means an edible plant or part of a plant other than a sweet fruit or seed. This usually means the leaf, stem, or root of a plant. However, the word is not scientific, and its meaning is largely based on culinary and cultural tradition. Some vegetables can be consumed raw, some may be eaten raw or cooked, and some must be cooked in order to be edible. Vegetables are most often cooked in savoury or salty dishes.

Only a few years ago the choice of vegetables in the shops was limited to basics such as carrots, potatoes, cabbage etc. Nowadays there is a whole range of 'foreign' vegetables available all year round. And I can assure you that vegetables do NOT have to be boring or tasteless as I shall prove in the recipes that follow...
