March Extra Veg Round Up

Extra Veg is a linky created by Helen from Fuss Free Flavours and I to encourage everyone to add extra vegetables to their meals.  Not only to you benefit from the extra nutrients and fibre, if you fill up on vegetables you are less likely to fill up on other, less healthy foods.

Thanks so much to all those who submitted delicious entries this month.  There was a prize for the March challenge which was £20 (+p&p) of spices from Steenbergs, which are organic and Fairtrade as far as possible. 

The Taste Space made Roasted Cocoa Cauliflower

  4. Great round up Michelle, so many wonderful looking recipes. I will definitely be trying the roasted cauliflower too, perhaps with some recently acquired cacao powder too!
