Vegetable and Fruit Palette: Purple and Blues

Welcome to August's round up of The Vegetable Palette and Fruit Palettenatures colours - natures goodness''. 
The theme for September was Purple and Blues.  (Please scroll to the bottom of the page for the new theme if you would like to take part this month).
I begin with a Savoury contribution to the Vegetable Palette which comes from The VegHog. The VegHog brings to the table a savoury Root Vegetable Pie with Skin on Mash.  The purples in this red onion, purple carrots and purple garlic, yes PURPLE GARLIC, want to know more check out this splendid autumnal Pie.
Next up is my Two Tone Balsamic Beetroot Galette.  Yes, my beetroot stained fingers did stain the galette pastry too.
Now we begin with the Fruit Palette, first up we have Janet from the Taste Space with Vegan Creme Caramel with Blueberry Chia Compote. Is it a blancmange, is it a Creme Brulee - nope its vegan Creme Caramel. Check it our Mama!
Next we have Ros from The More than Occasional Baker with these stunning Chocolate Blackberry Cupcakes.  Oh how I envy these romantic swirly rose icing. 
Ness from Jibber Jabber UK makes us want to crave for her homemade foraged seasonal fruits Blackberry, Elderberry and Damson Jelly.  But even though the fruit were for free, making this jam was a labour of love.  Here she has simply spread on toast, but I can see it also on croissants and also as a sponge cake filling. 
Choclette from Tin and Thyme presents us with a gorgeous deep Blackberry Galette. Just look at the marvellous deep velvet colour. There is something a little unexpected about this galette which you will only discover on eating it, the unmistakable hint of chocolate - yes there is chocolate blackberry jam in this glorious galette. How cool is that?!
Caroline Makes shares with us a very BLUE Blueberry Cheescake Brownie. If you want to make this and why wouldn't you?!, Caroline has step by step instructions on her blog.  Please go by and leave a comment I know she will appreciate it.   
And finally, Jen from Chadonnay & Samphire shares with us a Blackberry and Apple Banana Bread. This bread would be perfect for breakfast.  I love her the blackberry just bleeds its flavour and colour into the bread.
