Recipes EASY CHRISTMAS SIDES 1 of 3: VEGGIE PLATTER

EASY CHRISTMAS SIDES 1 of 3: VEGGIE PLATTER

Prep 10 mins
Cooking 15 - 20 mins
Serves 6

Fresh, healthy, tasty and incredibly easy – that’s the way we’re going with our Christmas sides this year. The secret to elevating it to festive food? It’s all in the spice!

- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -

  • 400g packet of fine green beans
  • 400g vine tomatoes
  • 400g courgettes, sliced
  • garlic-flavoured extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • Cape Herb & Spice Veggie Seasoning STEAM

- METHOD -

Steam the green beans until just done and refresh by dunking them into ice water. Fry the courgettes and vine tomatoes in the olive oil. Plate the lot up on a large platter, drizzle over lemon juice and give it a lick of garlic-flavoured olive oil, then dust with our Cape Herb & Spice Steam Veggie Seasoning.

(Cook’s tip: You can buy garlic-flavoured olive oil or you can simply make your own. Just smash two garlic cloves and cook them over very low heat in plain olive oil for a few minutes. Remove the cloves and voila – garlic-flavoured olive oil!)
