Root vegies with a difference

Method

  • CABBAGE - Heat a little olive oil in a large pan and gently saute the onion and bacon until reasonably tender. Then add the cabbage and toss to wilt, before adding ¼ cup stock and seasonings, and briefly cook.
  • GLAZED CARROTS - Blanch the carrots in sweetened boiling water until crisp-tender and drain well. Heat the butter in a pan, add the carrots with the nutmeg and parsley, and toss well. Then add a little stock and reduce until a glaze is formed. 
  • CRISPY CAULIFLOWER - Heat oil for frying to 180°C. Whisk the beer and water to form a batter in a large bowl. Then add the baking powder and flour, little by little, whisking continually until it coats your finger lightly. Mix in the coriander and then dip the cauliflower in the batter, before deep frying. Drain well on kitchen paper towels. Serve with a dollop of relish on top.
  • These dishes are great accompaniments to your favourite simple meat or fish dishes.
