Extra Veg - June Round-up

Tuesday, 1 July 2014
I hosted Extra Veg in June which is a blogging challenge created by myself and Helen from Fuss Free Flavours as a way to encourage us all to incorporate more vegetables into our meals.

There were lots of fabulous entries, thanks to all who linked up and took part!

Camilla from Fab Food 4 All created a delicious Prawn Curry, perfect for a family supper.

Searching for Spice made a light, flavoursome and healthy Turkey Chilli perfect for summer.

Sarah from Maison Cupcake created a super healthy, very quick and delicious Kermit Soup which was a gorgeous vibrant colour.
