January #EatYourGreens Round Up

Its almost the end of Janaury and you know what this means, #Eat Your Greens Round up.  


We have seven fantastic vegetarian and vegan recipes, all very different and all very delicious. 

The first Eat Your Greens recipe comes from Cheryl who blogs over at Madhouse Family Reviews.  Cheryl brought to the table a luscious Triple Layer Vegetarian Lasagne.  This lasagne has many warming colours, but it gets its splendid green from a mixture of green beans, courgette and peas all pureed to make a sauce. Now get your knife and fork out and tuck in. 
The second recipe comes from Lisa's Kitchen who shares with us a warming and golden bowl of Chana Palak aka Spicy Chickpeas and Spinach.  The silky green here is a bit more evident as it comes from Spinach wrapped wonderfully around the nutty chickpeas.  However, if your feeling a little cold and want a big hug, this bowl will give it to you as it delivers on natural creaminess from the coconut and aromatic warming spices.
Joey from Flicking the V's joins in with her awesome and very original idea for Brussels sprouts sushi rolls.  I love how she has enhanced the bitter sprouts with soy sauce, that's all and they are elevated to something quite delectable and remarkable. This recipe is a must for sprout haters,  I have bookmarked to try it soon. 
Helen from Roast Chicken and A Country Walk shares with us her Moroccan Squash and Pea Stew.  Stews are are so welcome in this part of the world right now where its really wet and cold.  The garden green peas are just popping to the surface in this bowl of comfort. 
Kirsty from Hijacked by Twins shares with us a very interesting pizza recipe. Its a Low Syn broccoli pizza base.  Yes, you read right - broccoli pizza base. I know its crazy, but it also sounds amazing.  It also happens to be gluten free. I love how the broccoli green remains so green even after baking.  I really want to have a go at making it at home. 
The Veg Hog my lovely co-host has me blushing, but you can go to her blog to find out why.  The Veg Hog shared with us Fennel and Cauliflower Thai Curry. She writes that although she has eaten fennel many times, she had never cooked with it until now.  As well as fennel there are broad beans and spinach and for herby hit, some coriander - I can just smell it wafting. 
And finally, my own contribution which was a Creamy Avocado Soup topped with Tortilla Cheese croutons.
