New “‘Easy meals with vegetables” recipes

vegetable and bean burgers

Back in November vegetables.co.nz launched Easy Meals with Vegetables, a collaborative project with the Health Promotion Agency (HPA) and the Heart Foundation aimed at increasing vegetable consumption with people who may have limited cooking skills, equipment, time and/or budgets.

Initially six recipes accompanied with short how-to videos were released, along with four resource cards on storage and use of kumara, carrots, pumpkin and silverbeet. We’re pleased to advise another fourteen recipes have been published, which can be found by selecting Easy Meals in our Recipes  section.

Videos on how to make these dishes are becoming available and a link can be accessed with the Easy Meals Recipes, or under the Easy Meals header in the Education and Resources section. These videos are designed to be a short and informative guide demonstrating how to make the meal.

Following the initial success of the first four resource cards, further cards are under way with HPA and once available these can be downloaded directly from vegetables.co.nz. HPA are also offering free print versions in pads of 20 which can be ordered through HPA’s website. Printed on thick card they provide a useful set for families and communities to build on over time and share.
