Live Life on the Veg with these 5 kale recipes

Mushrooms, Kale & Barley with Fresh Herbs & Baked Eggs

This is an easy, two-pan dish with plenty of umami (savoury) flavour from the mushrooms, particularly the dried mushroom liquor that acts like a little stock. We’ve used curly, but any kale will work here.

Guy’s Kale Hash

This kale, chorizo and potato hash is the ultimate weekend breakfast or hearty dinner on a cold day. Top with a poached egg to make a more complete meal. You can also use cabbage or sliced Brussels sprouts in place of kale here.

Celeriac, Kale & Mushroom Pie

This winter warmer gives the heartiest of meat stews a run for its money. Cooking the component parts may seem a bit fiddly but it ensures each ingredient retains its perfect flavour and texture. We’ve suggested some additions to the filling but go easy with them – the veg is more than enough to carry the show.

Baked Potatoes with Cheesy Kale Filling

These vegetarian baked potatoes hit that magic spot somewhere between decadent and worthy. They make a great simple and inexpensive midweek dinner and can be easily adapted to your kitchen contents: use chard or spinach if you have this in your veg box instead of kale, or use a smoky cheese such as Gruyère in place of cheddar.

Kale, Spelt & Chorizo Big Soup

This ‘big soup’ is a chunky broth that’s almost a stew. It’s a great style of dish for using up the last odds and ends in your winter veg box. The basic requirements are onion and garlic, a grain, good stock and lots of veg, but you can liven it up with bacon or chorizo, by stirring in pesto or by sprinkling over gremolata. It also reheats well.

  1. Thanks for great recipes. Now I can make good use of sprouts in freezer.
    The kale has had what looks like the kiss of death from the great outdoor
    freezer but i’m sure it will come back. Always stay optimistic.
    Best wishes,

  2. Too many veggie recipes for me – just cos we love our veg doesn’t mean we’re all vegetarians!

  3. I never see Barley or Spelt where I shop. Do you ever get them for your online shop, please?

  4. Love these veggie meals.
    Meat eaters can add meat so for me with a veggie husband, I really appreciate these – thank you!
