Best Veggie Secrets

My genius friend Jess suggested a post devoted to 'vegetarian secrets.' The idea is to list your favourite veggie dish from a restaurant, a great secret ingredient or some other kind of vegetarian magic. Here's my secret to get the ball rolling:

To give winter soups a richer flavour, roast garlic in the oven for 20 minutes and then add it to the soup. Just separate the cloves, peel off the outer skin layers, wrap them in aluminium foil and roast at around 150 - 180 degrees. Make sure you leave at least one skin layer on because this protects the garlic while it's roasting.


  • And for my two cents worth, can I rave about the mushrooms and potato salad combo available from Kismet Turkish in Manuka and Kingston (ACT)?

    Two of the tastiest veggies dishes around - chargrilled, pepper-seasoned mushrooms and a dry, chilli and dill based potato salad (not the heavy creamy type) - readily available in an easily transportable form. Fabulous quick, tasty and nutritious meal.

    Also available with lentil salad or tabouli (but the potato salad should not be under estimated).
