Hi ~ I made the ‘Aubergine & Courgette Bake’ this evening … and produced the most unpleasant meal ever! I think the major problem with the recipe is the sauce, made from liquidised tinned tomatoes, garlic, spinach and herbs. Although it’s initially quite uniformly thick when first poured over the layers of sliced aubergine and courgettes, it separates out during the baking process. A narrow band of ‘thick’ sauce remained at the top of the bake, just under the cheese … but below that the sauce had become very ‘thin’ and had the consistency of water. I have to say that the colour of the spinach/tomato sauce was rather unappetising too … it was like a greenish-brown slurry. All in all … a complete waste of time and money!

Hi Paula – your honest indignant feedback made me smile. I don’t know this recipe but it sounds – as you say – that liquidising the tinned tomatoes was the culprit: too much liquid. I always give tinned tomatoes a wide berth because I find them too acidic – tomato puree is preferable and would give more control over consistency.

However I often find even if a meal looks a bit yak, it still tastes good. Hope you could salvage some of it! Cooking is always something of an experiment – that’s what I like about it – its edge of unpredictability….

I used the courgette soup recipe with cream cheese and chives. It sounded a bit odd but was absolutely fantastic! I now have a new best thing to make, eat and serve. It really impressed my guests and was so easy, it felt like cheating!!

Here’s a recipe from The Nearly Naked Veg Company which I hav tried – really good. Ive copied and pasted it from the website.

So many of you have called us asking for ideas of what to do with the Khol Rabi that we thought we would include it in our recipe this week. Some customers have said they made a Kohl Rabi Dauphinoise which was delicious so that is another idea – anyone who has a recipe for this let us know and we will add it to the website!

1 kohl rabi
A couple of small carrots
1 or 2 potatoes
1 onion
1 clove of garlic
a thumb of grated ginger
1 can of tomatoes
Half a 125ml pot of crème frâiche
Water to dilute
Spices to taste (we mixed up 1 tsp turmeric, ½ tsp chili powder, 2 tsp ground coriander seeds and 1 tsp ground cumin seeds)
Firstly sauté the onions, garlic, ginger in some oil for a few minutes. Add in the spices and cook for a couple of minutes. Add all the root veg, diced and throw in the kohl rabi leaves, and any other edible greenery you might have (eg kale, shredded). Sweat the veg for about 10mins and then add the can of tomatoes, the crème frâiche (or you could use yoghurt), and some water. Season to taste. Let this whole mixture simmer for half an hour.

If you have some coriander in any shape or form – add it in, since it has a fantastic flavour.

Serve with basmati rice (any rice really but basmati is Sams favourite). Remember this is just a guide. Really, any root veg can be used, in any quantities. You could also cut down in the quantity or variation of spices if you prefer a milder curry.

You said I submitted a request for “how to cook kale” this is my first request. Do you have a recipe I can try as I bought the kale today and would like to cook it for tomorrow. Thanks for you help.
