Blue-cheese baked gem squash
Cook’s note: These make a perfect veggie dish on their own but are also delicious with roast chicken. If you braai them, they’ll take on a lovely smoky flavour.
Warm “kabbouleh” salad
Cook’s note: Tabbouleh is a lemony, herby Levantine dish made with bulgur wheat. Adding kale, slow-cooked in olive oil to tenderise it, turns it into a wholesome, warm ‘kabbouleh’ – inspired by the vegan dish with a cult following in Los Angeles.
Roast black garlic with poached carrots and honey radishes
Cook’s note: Save time by poaching the carrots in advance and roasting them shortly before serving.
Baby-marrow fries with garlic mayo
Herby couscous-stuffed tomatoes and peppers
