Seasonal vegetablesAdd a healthy and delicious touch to your meals with a side of seasonal vegetables; check the best ways to prepare them below.
CauliflowerIn addition to being rich in fibre and vitamin C, cauliflower is one of the lowest-calorie vegetables. It is an ideal accompaniment to your dishes, both raw and cooked. This vegetable can be stored for two to three days in the fridge and for up to 6 months in the freezer.
CarrotA 100 gram serving covers up to 200 percent of our daily needs for beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant. The more colourful the better! In fact, brown carrots contain up to twice as much beta-carotene as orange ones. Delicious in savoury recipes, carrots, with their sweet taste, are perfect for baking!
MushroomsEasy to cook and rich in nutrients, mushrooms are a great companion in your daily cooking. Raw crunchy or cooked fondant; you can eat them in a thousand and one ways. They can be served stuffed, sautéed, raw, with cream or, if you’re trying to get really fancy, in a velouté.
Red onionOnion is a vegetable rich in vitamins and minerals. Raw, it keeps a sweet flavour and mixes perfectly in your salads or sandwiches. If you cook it, its flavour mellows and it may also be more digestible. Its consumption prevents cellular ageing and cardiovascular diseases.
Sweet potatoSweet potatoes are a slightly sweet tasting vegetable whose flesh is rich in beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant that helps fight infections in the body. Gratin, mash, fried or even in soup, the sweet potato is delicious in many forms.
LeekLeeks are essential vegetables for this winter. Low in calories but very rich in fibre, leeks are vegetables with strong satiating power. The green part, which has fibres that are more difficult to digest, is ideal for preparing a broth. This vegetable is also delicious in a gratin, vinaigrette, fondue and can also surprise you in salads.
