French Vegetable Recipes

The best French vegetable recipes are made using the best organic fresh ingredients. Growing your own is the ideal solution.

Visit any local market in any village in France and you can't fail to spot how important fresh vegetables are to the french.

French vegetable recipes like 'Cépes à la Sarladaise' which is ceps cooked with potatoes and garlic, and 'Tomates a la Provencale' braised tomatoes, just wouldn't taste the same if fresh ingredients were not used.

You'll notice as they buy their vegetables, how they examine their veggies, not worrying about the misshapen ones, they pick out the ripest for their flavour.

Its always a good idea to be able to grow your own vegetables. Not always possible in a small garden, I know what it's like having next to no space and wanting to eat my own produce.

But even in the smallest of places, I found room for tomatoes, grown from a grow bag and herbs, grown in pots. 'Where there's a will, there's a way'.
