Get to know what ingredients go together


Food is something that allows you to bring your family together. Whether you have a kitchen garden, you go to the markets on the weekend or you get your ingredients from the local supermarket, there’s no doubt that some days you look at the contents of your fridge and are left with little or no inspiration.

Creating a meal out of “nothing” can sometimes be a matter of knowing which ingredients go together.

So let’s take a tour around the kitchen garden and see which ingredients complement some common foods you might have in your fridge right now.

 

Beetroot goes with:

  • apples
