    I love all veg… but my favourite to use in the kitchen is the gorgeously coloured beetroot!

  • Simon Jones:

    My favourite veg to use in the kitchen is the courgette. I use it in salads, stir fries, curries, pasta bakes and in chutneys.

  • melanie stirling:

    I love any vegetables but I really love purple sprouting.

  • Klara:

    It’s impossible to choose only on! Last year I used a lot the aubergine, all kind of aubergines – the Clara bought from seedparade was great! And courgette. And a new discovery for a great salad bowl: nasturtium.

  • Lara:

    I love to use coriander and spinach the most. And I love a good spanish onion!

    My favourite veg in the kitchen is carrots. they can be used raw in salads, grated into sandwiches with cheese, eaten as a snack, cooked as a normal veg, stir fried and are the vital ingredient for carrot cake

    You can’t beat home grown radishes served with French bread and butter and a sprinkling of sea salt. The taste of summer! My favourite is the French heirloom variety Rond rose à bout blanc 2.

  • Debs:

    I have a special affection for fresh peas straight from the garden! They are so pretty to grow and there’s something wonderful about sitting down and popping the shells (reminds me of my grandmother I think), and they are beautifully fragrant just at that moment. Impossible not to eat a few :)
    Delicious raw in salads and surprisingly versatile cooked, everything from soups to curries!

  • Debs:

    why has my post been removed?

  • Mark:

    I thought about this quiet a lot and the one item i grow all year round and use in almost any dish i make has to be the ever faithful Spring Onion. Winter soups or summer salads, Quiche, stir fry or even curry the humble Spring Onion always has a place in any dish.

  • Sue Larisch:

    It has got to be Tomatoes….how I love them, from the smell of the first true leaf after sowing them to the first ripe tom on a warm summer’s day. It doesn’t matter what colour although I prefer Heirloom varieties. I make loads of salads in the summer months and freeze litres of sauces for the winter time. Wonderful.

  • frances hopkins:
