Asparagus Hollandaise

Asparagus Hollandaise

There are a lot of reasons to eat asparagus. It's green, it's healthy, it's tasty and delicious. And perhaps the best reason to eat these tender, slender stalks is because they're traditionally served with Hollandaise sauce. Here's everything you need to simply steam asparagus and extravagantly transform butter into the richest, silkiest, smoothest sauce known to man.

Steaming asparagus and other green vegetables is always a better option to boiling. Boiling takes away texture and leaches away flavour, colour, and nutrients.

Sweet Potato Aloo Gobi

In India, aloo gobi means “potato cauliflower”: it’s one of their most common vegetable dishes. It’s one of my family’s favourites too, partly because it’s so easy to make, but mostly because it’s full of so much addictive bright flavour. It’s normally made with plain white potatoes and cauliflower, but, for even more colour, flavour and nutrition, this version uses sweet potatoes instead.

Brown Butter Green Beans with Toasted Almonds

Green beans are one of my favourite vegetables, especially when they’re sprinkled with crunchy toasted nuts and dressed with brown butter. Browning butter is one of the all-time great flavour secrets; it’s an easy way to unlock lots of hidden flavour and dress up your plate. Of course, for a healthier twist, you can simply use flavourful olive oil.

Apple Stewed Red Cabbage

Apples and red cabbage were made for each other! This is a traditional side dish for just about any meat, poultry, pork or game. The earthy bitterness of the cabbage is perfectly balanced by the sweetness of the apple and the sourness of the vinegar.

Garlic Steamed Broccoli

This is my favourite way to serve broccoli, it’s super speedy and it tastes great. As it steams the broccoli is scented with garlic - but not overwhelmed by it. It’s a great way to turn a head of broccoli into an aromatic side dish on the table in under ten minutes!
