Eat Your Greens Round Up

May's edition of Eat Your Greens attracted 7 fabulous vegetarian and vegan recipes, please read on - lots of originality here.   
First we have Helen who blogs over at Roast chicken and a Country Walk .  Helen shared with us her 5 minute Asparagus, Spinach and Sheep's Cheese Gnocchi.  This is the perfect after work supper when you are tired and hungry and want something easy and quick to put on the table, or your lap! Helen writes 'this is a light, fresh spring dish which is packed full of flavour '.  I love how Helen has made the most of seasonal greens like asparagus and spinach, though she has has also suggested using garden peas, from your freezer of course. 
Next we have Janet from The Taste Space.  Janet shares with us her Cold Sesame Cucumber Noodles.  This would be fabulous to take into work for lunch or even a picnic, if your dab handy with chopsticks.  Cleverly to compliment the soba noodles, Janet has with the help of her spiralizer made some cucumber noodles, but also kept some back for crunch and bite.  This noodle dish is dressed in a sesame ginger dressing and surrounded by generous chunks of avocado wedges.
The Green Gourmet Giraffe aka Johanna shares with us a curiously named salad - Only Kale Can Save Us Now!  Check it out, but what I will say - If your a serious food blogger and you have never heard or massaged a kale, where have your been?!  But seriously, you have to check out this blog post where Johanna also reminds us that almost 10 years ago, the green curly vegetable kale was little known to us all. Johanna's salad is lovingly dressed in maple, tahini and soy sauce, she exclaims that the addition of maple syrup elevated this salad to 'wondrous'! and she even licked her fingers after massaging the dressing into the kale - what will she do next?!  
Vicky from Gluten Free SCD and Veggie shares with us a very original recipe and take on Hasselback Potatoes, behold her Hasselback Courgettes with Basil Oil.  Now that just brilliant, you have to agree with me.  These would truly amaze your dinner guests too; and be something different to serve up at a Veggie BBQ too.  I love how Vicky has injected flavours into what I consider to be a very bland vegetable and made it appealing.  
Now get your mouth around these savoury morsels.  Corina from Searching For Spice presents to us some Mini Frittatas.  These little frittata's are just dainty and perfect for the picnic basket or even for your little lunch box.  These Mini Frittata's are made with herbs, mushrooms and spears of asparagus that just look stunning studding the golden tops.  
My co-host The VegHog brings to the table a Mexican Black Bean and Kale Tacos.  Yum. The VegHog fills soft taco shells with her smoked chilli beans and kale  and baked in the oven.   Like the VegHog - I could eat Mexican style Chilli every day, its so versatile.     
Finally, my own recipe which is Taste of The Sea Seaweed Spaghetti.  This dish is made with sea vegetables, sea spaghetti and sea flakes.
