Discover The Vegetable Adventure

At RossCo we know that vegetables are a really important part of healthy eating. They are an active source of many nutrients, including potassium, fibre, folate (folic acid) and vitamins A, E and C, all of which benefit you and your family.

Then there are the exotic sounding superfoods, nutrient-dense, whole foods that have high amounts of micronutrients and health benefits. It’s easier than you think to incorporate these into your diet, as many everyday vegetables have superfood propoerties such as broccoli, spinach, kale, tomatoes.

At RossCo we stock over 50 varieties of fresh vegetables from the exotic to the everyday. Why not pick up one of our recipe cards in store to inspire you to try new ways of preparing and cooking and these delicious foods.

All Roasted Up

Great Ways To Bring Out The Taste

Know someone who doesn’t like vegetables? Here’s how to turn them around.

Roasting vegetables until they are well browned on the outside, concentrates and sweetens their flavour in a way that even committed veggie haters find hard not to like.

And it’s easy too – roasting is quick and hands-off, with much of the prep done ahead of roasting time. So with some good pre planning, when you’re ready to roast, all you have to do is toss them with oil and seasonings, spread them on a pan and check on them occasionally as they roast. Roast them high and you’re off!

Trying out Kohlrabi

Fantastically Versatile Cooked Or Raw

Kohlrabi. Not your most common vegetable, but well worth a look. It’s similar to broccoli stems, but looks like it has just landed.

It’s a member of the cabbage family, with a sweet yet peppery flavour and you are best to eat the bulbous bottom, although you can eat it all.

The skin has the rubbery texture of broccoli stems and can be white, light green, or bright purple. The insides are usually a creamy white.

It’s actually pretty fantastic raw, with a super-crisp texture and a mild peppery bite, Try it drizzled with good olive oil and sea salt as an appetizer or side salad.

Our preference for cooking is to roast cubes or wedges in the oven, after which it turns sweet and a bit caramelised in the high heat, making a great side dish for steak, grilled fish, or almost any main course dinner.

Go On. Get Fresh.
