Pumpkin (Small) - 600g

The Kabochi variety pumpkin is a must have ingredient when making Saturday soup. It is both delicious and colourful and keeps it texture once cooked. One slice can be used, and the rest stored in the freezer for the next time. It has a sweet taste and adds depth to a dish. Look out for its distinctive dark green outer skin, it is rarely available in mainstream supermarkets who tend to stock the watery ones that mash out when cooked.

Try washing and cutting up the pumpkin, skin on and roasting them and eating them in place of other potatoes. Serve them like mash add a pinch of salt, pepper and nutmeg to really bring out the taste.

Ripe Plantain

Of all the flavours in the Caribbean and other tropical places the plantain is the one food that is universally adored.

Around the world plantains are boiled, roasted or most commonly fried. Find a way to add one to the BBQ and you will not be disappointed. Fried sweet plantains are eaten on the side with dishes like stew peas and rice or ackee and saltfish.

The trick to making delicious fried plantain is to know which ones to choose. It’s all about how the skin looks; choose from firmer green plantain, to one with a sturdy yellowish tone, or go for one that looks more beaten up for a sweeter taste.

Plantain can be added to your diet as a replacement for the common potato. Not only are they far more delicious they are nutritionally more superior. They contain a richer source of fibre as well as vitamin A, C and B6, magnesium and potassium.

Avocado

Once considered exotic, nowadays avocados are all over the place: showing up in recipes for salads, smoothies, sandwiches and dips. When eaten in a salad or as a side dish avocados are treated as a vegetable.

Valuable source of Vitamin E, B6 and Potassium. There is some confusion that leads to concern that this delicious, nutritious produce is fattening. They do contain fat but not the kind of fat that is harmful. The fat found in avocados is monounsaturated fat and it has been suggested that eating foods ,such as avocados, that contain the right kind of fat, lowers cholesterol and may even lower the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Enjoy avocados without the feelings of guilt usually associated with other high fat foods especially chocolate, biscuits and cake each of which contain the wrong kind of fat (saturated fat) and often lead to common health complaints especially when consumed in large quantities. If you are going to include saturated fat in your diet it is probably best to consume butter, coconut oil and palm oil because these fats are usually consumed in far smaller quantities.

This larger, smooth skinned variety is typically eaten with bread, especially hard dough bread or with bulla a round basic firm sweet cake, When eaten with bread and bulla avocados function as cheese or butter.

Cho Cho (two)

Cho Cho ( sometimes known as chayote and christophine) is a type of squash, it has a delicate taste.

Cho cho is rich antioxidant vitamin s B and C. The cho cho is usually treated as a vegetable and can be baked boiled or sautéed.

Experiment with the cho cho by using it as a fruit and eating it raw. Try adding it to a salad to make it more interesting. A bit like how an apple would be used in a Waldorf salad.

When used most people tend to peel them. To maximise the nutritional content of the cho cho you should wash it carefully and leave the skin on. A lot of the nutritional goodness in the food we eat is contained just under the surface of the skin - keep it and eat it raw or cooked.

To make it easier to use, cube or slice try chopping the cho cho in half length ways - expose and remove the hard seed. Keep the seed dry it out and grate it into your juices and smoothies to boost their antioxidant quotas.

Cho cho is already known as an addition to soups, meat and escovitch fish dishes where it absorbs the flavours and seasonings.

I have recently been introduced to a new way of using cho cho. It is prepared and seasoned using authentic herbs and spices and cooked as a side dish instead of roast potatoes - they are extremely low in carbs. I am sure this knowledge will add to their popularity.

If you have never tried this amazing food before, the best way to describe its taste is a cross between potato and cucumber.

There is only one disadvantage to this vegetable/fruit that I can find. They are extremely perishable. I have never tried freezing them. If you know of any way to make the cho cho last any longer, please drop me a note.

Okra 143g

Okra also known by its nickname "ladies' fingers". has many health benefits. It is high in Vitamin C and is therefore, an antioxidant.

Okra, is unique in that although classed and used as a vegetable (it is actually a fruit due to the many seeds).

Okra it a good source of protein. Protein can be hard to get if you are following a restrictive diet.

Okra has a reputation of being slimy. The slime only appears if okra is over cooked. Add it near the end of the cooking process if adding it to meat or fish.

Better still cook it separately and serve it as a side dish. That way you won't offend anyone who has yet to convert to its taste. Some people love it, some people hate it. My advice is eat it anyway it is very good for you. A good source of fibre and protein. Contains Vitamin B, C and Vitamin K. Minerals including manganese, folic acid, magnesium. Helpful doses of phytochemicals that help to improve mental health, protect kidney and the liver and can dampen down allergic reactions that are common in the Springtime: asthma and hayfever.

Make okra chips by cooking okra for one or 2 minutes in a heated pan over a medium flame. If you use a good quality pan you won't even need any oil. Sprinkle with sea salt or pink Himalayan salt and serve immediately.

If you are diabetic, okra is a useful weapon in reducing insulin level. This can be done by adding sliced okra , raw to a bottle of water. Leave it in the fridge over night and drink the water during the following day.
