Beetroot and mozzarella parcels with lemon and garlic greens

Filed under:

parcels 2Who would have believed that the humble beetroot would be recognised as a super food?

Beetroot’s deep, overpoweringly red juice has earned it the reputation as the most bossy of vegetables.
Although the leaves have always been eaten, historically the beet root was generally used medicinally for a range of ailments, including fevers, constipation and skin problems.

Beetroot is a good source of iron and folate (naturally occuring folic acid). It also contains nitrates, betaine, magnesium and other antioxidants (notably betacyanin).
More info on the NHS Choices website.

This week’s recipe from Jodie is a classic filo parcel. Give it a go and enjoy a Meat Free Monday (or super food Sunday!)

Vegan Tagine

meat-free-mondayHi – Jodie here with this week’s recipe, although World Vegan Month is over now, I’ll carry on sharing some recipes for a bit 🙂

As a family we have all collectively spent a lot of time in Morocco and are always bringing back authentic recipes and spices to recreate our favourite dishes at home. This recipe is my take on a vegan tagine.

With a tagine you do not necessarily need the authentic dish in order to cook this, a large saucepan and lid will work just as well, or an oven proof dish and lid, cook and prep time will not vary depending on chosen dish.

Perhaps we’ll start to see vegan tagine appearing on a high street near you soon? Apparently catering for the ‘plant curious’ is becoming big business.
