A Mix of Vegetables
This recipe is exactly what is says, a mix of vegetables.
Saying something is simple can sometimes sound like a quick throw away comment, but this recipe is really simple.
There are no secret ingredients. You don’t need to pick certain vegetables, just ones that you like and possibly a few you wouldn’t normally eat on its own.
I saw a recipe in a book of mine that was titled, Vegetable Hash. I never read the recipe, the title was enough to spark an idea of something new to cook. Essentially all I needed to do was pick some vegetables and but I thought adding feta cheese would help bring a good taste to the dish.
- One green pepper (I used half a pepper)
- Sweet potato
- Baby sweetcorn
- Olive oil
- Feta cheese
What adds more time to make this dish is cooking some of the vegetables before adding all into one pan. In this case, the vegetables I cooked first were broccoli, kale, baby sweetcorn and sweet potato. This was just a preference, you could add these straight into the vegetable mix and allow to cook through that way. Cooking these first eliminated me having to individually check whether the broccoli and sweet potato were cooked whilst in the pan with everything else.
- To begin with, I peeled off the layers of the onion and cut into medium sized chucks. Chop the pepper into the same size and add to a pan with a bit of olive oil and cook over a medium to high heat. Remember to stir continuously.
- After a few minutes add the tomatoes.
- Add the sweet potato and season with salt and pepper.
- Toss in the broccoli and kale.
- Add the baby sweetcorn and feta cheese. Mix the vegetables well.
And there you have a Vegetable Mix (a very original name!).
This is a great dish to make with any vegetables you have left over. Also, you are getting the amount of vegetables you need to eat each day. A win-win scenario. This dish can be adapted in so many ways.
