This ornamental kale is so pretty; such a shame it’s not edible.

  1. Fab kale shots, Su, but many thanks too for the Mollie Katzen link. Not only did I find a good recipe to add to my collection of ‘what to do with too many courgettes’, but also a recipe including quinoa that G might actually eat while using up the bag that’s sitting unopened in my cupboard. Brilliant!

    • Thanks Tish. Iโ€™m glad you found some good recipes. The courgette glut is always a tough one to deal with, and a good quinoa recipe is a definite bonus. Iโ€™ll have to have another look at her site!
