  4. Eggplant! Without a doubt. This was a slow burn for me, when I was younger I always wanted to like the taste (I thought it looked sophisticated !?!?) but alas my taste buds were not in sync with my longing. Then many years ago in Japan I was introduced to Miso eggplant and my love affair began. Now I eat Eggplant any which way I can get it. This book looks beautiful and I would love to get my hands on it.

  6. I would have to say potatoes are my favourite vegetable. They’re always in the pantry, they can be baked, fried, mashed, stewed, sautéed, shallow fried – you name it, potatoes can handle anything. They can even turn into gnocchi! So many endless possiblilties with the humble potato and I look forward to the day that I can grow my own 🙂

  8. Oh I love books that have hand drawn illustrations! Even if I dont win, that looks like a lovely blog to follow – thank you. It is hard to pin down just one favorite vegetable, but i think I would have to say eggplant. I roasted a whole tray of them yesterday, had some with grilled chicken for dinner, and enjoyed some more today with a smokey tomato, capsicum sauce. I just heard some friends are popping around later for a drink – so yes the rest will be mashed up and made into baba ganoush. What a versatile vegetable!

  10. I can’t get enough of sweet potato. It has all the versatility of potato, but it’s sweeter, has a smoother texture and it’s a prettier colour! And it’s great in cake too (think carrot cake with sweet potato instead… mmmm so good!).

  11. Asparagus! I absolutely love it and eat it year-round in any I can. It’s good in the main dishes, salads, and in breakfast foods like egg dishes.

  13. Thank you so very much for sharing your thoughts & ideas with us.
    Well, I’d have to say that I would have not one, but two (2) favourite vegetables. Reading through all the above comments I’d have to say that mine are certainly not the normal run of the mill vegies. However, there were two other ladies who obviously enjoy … eggplant like I do. But my other favourite is … okra. Both vegies make beautiful curries which I really enjoy & are just several vegies of a few that I am able to eat.

  14. What a gorgeous book! The illustrations look beautiful and I bet it is filled to the brim with fantastic recipes.

    I had to think about this question for a while, but I would have to say that my favorite vegetable at the moment would be spinach. It is incredibly nutritionally dense and such a versatile ingredient. It works wonderfully in salads, smoothies, pasta and risotto, pizza, dips and too many other dishes to list. However, my favorite use for it would be in the creation of traditional burek, a flaky Macedonian pastry. It is absolutely delicious and a crowd-pleaser amongst friends and family. I will always hold the memories of being a little girl making it for family gatherings with my baba, specifically picking the spinach straight from the garden and steaming it before it was mixed with egg, fetta and ricotta.

  15. Mine would be Parsnips, baked with a drizzle of olive oil or parsnip chips with sprinkling of dried homemade herb salt and parsnip mash yum! Life can be simply divine with our choice of vegetables from the garden or farmers market.

  16. Asparagus. I grew up only eating tinned asparagus, so the first time I tasted fresh asparagus was an absolute revelation. I love it simply steamed with some lemon, salt and pepper. I avoid buying the imported stuff so waiting for it to come into season makes it extra special.
