The ten minute vegetable challenge

Posted by Picasa

Three new quick vegetable dishes for you to try out.
Hannah Miles in her country kitchen is sharing her quick pea and mint soup recipe that takes, according to our own reenactment, 8 minutes and 30 seconds from pea to plate. Freddie and Alex loved this soup which we made last night. Thank you Hannah.

David Hall, Book the Cook has created a brilliant quick turnaround treat, his Hasty, Hasty Sweet and Sour Peppers on toast. Delicious David - we will be making these tonight for the hoards when they return from school, hungry, tired and impatient. We always love what you do. Thank you David!

And that brings us to Holler in Scotland at Tinned Tomatoes with one of her favourite quick recipes, Red Pepper Houmous. This recipe, based on Nigella is perfect for this quick challenge. Now if you all combine these with the quick fried plantain tostones dippers. Holler, Freddie loves red pepper houmous and we will try out your version this weekend. This is a recipe that he can make. Thank you Holler!
And don't forget, in the post below are another three brilliant quick recipes from Figs,Olives,Wine, The Expatriate Kitchen,The Slow Cook and Purple Podded Peas.
Go on - tell us how much time you take to cook supper?


  1. thank u for the nice words! :)

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. I must say I absolutely love the idea behind your blog. Would you say its been an overall success with your kids?

  3. Thanks for all the great links to veggies!

  4. Thanks for adding me, another fun round up!

    I am getting a bit panicky, What are you going to do when you get to the end of the alphabet?

  5. Come and collect your award for a top post at Cerys the Well Done Angel Awards! x

  6. Oh so glad I found your blog! What a wonderful concept.

  7. Happy Holidays Charlotte and Family!! Looking forward to reading your posts in the New Year.
    BTW How about Quiona? I know technically it is a grain, but it grows on a plant... I haven't tried it myself yet.
    All the best for the New Year.

  8. Once you get past the preparation stage, vegetables can be pretty fast to cook. And the secret to whipping through the preparation stage - well, I use a food processor. Wash 'em, chop 'em, saute 'em, and dinner can be on the table in under ten minutes. Pretty good!
