In garden at home we talked about many things: care, benefits and errors that occur when we are dedicated to growing our own vegetables. I hope you have served, and you’re encouraged to start your own garden.
Today we will focus on how to make the most of some vegetables which were only using one hand. Nothing to eat only roots, no leaves very rich and nutritious vegetables. Yes, that you were pulling you can actually eat!
Carrots are those inevitable plants in any cuisine. There are thousands of recipes that incorporate either as a main ingredient or as a complement to accompany or enhance other flavors. But what probably did not know (and I must confess that I did not) is that its leaves are also consumed! And it seems even they are more nutritious and provide more vitamins and minerals that the roots. The most common uses are in the broth or as a condiment.
All we just eat the root, but the leaves are also very rich. Its stems are purple and big and bright green leaves. Cooking is not rocket science. The best way to take advantage is like leaves of spinach, although its flavor is milder and less rough texture. Some snacks or an omelette with these leaves, perfectly complement any meal.
The radishes are one of the simplest crops from the garden and can also use their leaves in the kitchen. Why they could not miss in this list. Although found in any grocery store, not everyone knows or uses. But, being easy to grow and benefit the whole plant, it is definitely one of the best vegetables to have in the garden. Its leaves have a very particular taste. My best option? A fresh salad that mixes the root with leaves.
If completely take advantage of your crops you are going to have much less waste. Moreover, in all 3 cases you can go reaping the outer leaves, while internal roots continue to grow and continue to develop. You can even leave some leaves and so only have this part for much longer. Because if the roots are much developed, they may become hard and lose its flavor. Ready to take a chance on these vegetables? Do you already know them?
