Vegan Roasted Rutabaga Wraps with Garlic & Cayenne Dressing


Simple and delicious, a fresh and organic recipe. This dish came about on the last day of the week before the new delivery from Riverford comes. The food was somewhat knocked together on a creative (and hopeful) whim, using what ingredients we had left in the fridge / pantry and therefore there isn’t much of a side garnish to accompany.
I am pleased to say it was totally worth getting creative!
Love it when that happens 🙂

To make my Roasted Rutabaga Wraps:


1/4 Rutabaga (Swede)
A large handful of Purple Sprouting Broccoli florets
2 Large Pointed Cabbage Leaves
Olive Oil
Salt *non organic

Pre-heat the oven. Add a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt to a baking tray. Take 1/4 small swede and slice. Chop the broccoli florets away from the stalk. Roast the rutabaga for approx 25 minutes around Gas Mark 6.
After 10-15 minutes add broccoli for a further 10 minutes.

Steam 2 large leaves of pointed cabbage for 3-5 minutes.

To make the dressing:


4 tsp Olive oil
1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1 tsp Turmeric
1 clove raw Garlic

Chop the garlic and mix all the ingredients together.

Once the ingredients are cooked and prepared, lay the cabbage leaves onto plate.

Place the sliced swede on them first then add Broccoli.
Drizzle with the dressing.
Wrap one side of the leaf around the contents and then flip in the top followed by the folding of the other side of the leaf.

Gently flip it over. Drizzle with further dressing and garnish to preference.

Grab a knife and fork and enjoy!

food revolution

The “new” food revolution seems to be upon us, and I hope that it turns out to be a revolution that lasts. As revolutions go, this is a more positive one as it is seems to be a return to basic facts rather than pie-in-the-sky, wishful thinking on the wings of dreams. The new food revolution is, rather, pie-in-the-pan, hard-work on the backs of those who see the potential in acting upon truth.

As most revolutions, this one has its (let’s say) issues. First, while the wagon has pulled out, there are still those jumping that don’t belong. Simple words like “organic” are now being touted by very non-organic growers and worse, being taken over by bureaucratic system that has spent so much time and effort working so hard against the faithful cultivators of quality; just ask Joel Salatin! Other corporate confusions now include honest and innocent terms like “free…
