Chef Hat Icon Chef tips + Ingredient Swaps + Ideas

SWAP MUSHROOMS USE – whatever you like; maitake, shitake, oyster, crimini, chestnut, portabello, button mushrooms.


PARSLEY is a mineral-rich superfood.  Cooking the parsley softens the flavour and retains nutrients as minerals are heat tolerant, unlike vitamins which diminish during cooking.


GREENS – use swiss chard, spinach, kale, dandelion, chenopodium – good king henry, Asian greens, bok choy.


SWAP POTATO for purple skin yams, butternut squash or zucchini – cooking times vary.


ADD CHERRY TOMATOES + HERBS like scallion, chives, garlic chives, basil, dill, thyme, rosemary.
