Struggling to get your veggies in this season? From appetizers to desserts, food expert Alice Zaslavsky shares three delicious veg-forward dishes that will bring flavour and keep your family satisfied. 

Sesame cucumber whack salad

Often, when cucumber salad recipes get you to scrape out the seeds, they don’t really tell you what to do with them. ‘Pour them down the sink’ is the usual assumption. But why must the seeds suffer such a fate, when they’re such a delightfully textural and sweet addition to a dressing? The answer is: that they shouldn’t. Pop them in the dressing, or spoon them into your mouth. Whatever you choose to do, leave the sink for the dishes.

Walnut eggplant rolls

Walnuts, garlic, and coriander are the new holy trinity in the kitchen.  

Coconut tapioca with lemongrass curd and fresh mango 

The flavour of lemongrass lends itself to both sweet and savoury dishes. This dessert utilizes the zippiness of lemongrass to splice through the richness of coconut cream and accent the bounciness of sago pearls.
