No Food Waste Mixed Veggies

Mixed Vegetables is an easy way to get your daily palette of colourful seasonal vegetables in one dish. Choose your favourite vegetables and sneak in the ones you don’t like as much. Blend the red (peppers, tomato), orange (carrot, pepper), white (cauliflower, mushrooms) , green (beans, peas, capsicum). Up the protein by adding diced tofu bits.
Buy local and seasonal.It’s also a good way to finish various small quantities of leftover vegetables!
