Last month I had the pleasure of guest hosting Extra Veg, a food blogging challenge developed by Helen from Fuss Free Flavours and Michelle over at Utterly Scrummy Food for Families. Extra Veg is all about adding a portion or more of extra vegetables into a meal, and my fellow food bloggers are certainly creative when it comes to such a challenge!
Helen’s philosophy when it comes to eating is:
Forget diets and eat a generous portion of (raw) vegetables with every meal whenever you can.
With that, have a look at the twenty tempting vegetable recipes food bloggers around the world have made.
