Bite magazine: Editor's picks, June 27
This week's tale of two gardens has had us comparing vegetable soup recipes. Mine is very much the throw-in-what-I-have method sometimes using bacon or hock as a base. Others are more meticulous using only their favourite vegetables, finely chopped and sliced for texture as much as flavour. Ray McVinnie shows how he makes his in our how-to video.
The Bite team are cooking with silverbeet this week. And Will's got a great bruschetta recipe using kale.
If Jenny Maidment and Will Eaglesfield do inspire you to head out in to the garden over winter to grow your own veges, or even if you're buying seasonally at the fruit and vege shop you may well find yourself with lots of silverbeet which is a good thing because you can make a scrummy silverbeet filo pie and this silverbeet tzatziki is handy to serve with grilled or pan-fried lamb or chicken.
Soups are essential in these cold winter months.
If it's pumpkin and kale you have Will's bruschetta of roast pumpkin, kale and feta makes a great lunch or snack. Maybe you can turn your bounty in to a warm, hearty oven bake recipe that might win you the very gorgeous Samsung Chef Collection Gourmet Vapour Oven 73L. Share your recipe and be in to win here.
Ideas for dinner: mushroom + spinach pappardelle or try this slow-cooked beef rump.
