We move into the cold months where nothing much stirs in the garden. Oranges and other citrus are plentiful, pears too. Mid Winter vegetables arrive. Vegetables are more limited in range but beautiful in flavours.

Here are some suggestions for salads and vegetables in season or available in mid winter – carrots, potatoes pumpkin, spinach and parsnips — and much more. Dips too, and winter preserves. Even BBQ suggestions when the weather is mild.

Enjoy some Healthy Vegetable Inspiration for Mid Winter. You can also browse Soup Recipes for Mid Winter; Wintery Salads, Vegetables, BBQs, Dips and Preserves; Indian Deliciousness; Goodies, Grains, Lentils and More; Drinks and Sweets; and Tips and Hints for Cooking in Mid Winter.
