    Turnip chips are amazing, highly recommend them, Par-boil them then spray in oli put in oven, salt vinegar, totally lush!

    I quite enjoy having sprouts with chopped bacon in them.

    I know cauli can get boring, but doing some cheese sauce made purely from double cream & philly cheese is fab, and so far i cant get enough of it!

    Mmmm love asparagus, and I like the sound of cauli cheese as it's not my favourite veg on its own. Had broccoli tonight with a knob of butter and also I like fried cabbage with a bit of bacon & black pepper.

    I thought though that turnips being a root veg were a no-no?

    Ooo! Do you have a recipe for this?

    I have just made a big batch of Leek and Butternut Squash soup... :eek: I think i'm allowed it following Pig2Twig though. Does Butternut Squash contain a lot of carbs then?

    You could try curly kale? If you drizzle or spray it with oil and cook it for just 2 mins or so under a hot grill then add salt it tastes very much like crispy seaweed from the chinese..........
