Winning Veggie Food


You might remember the Winter Warmer Competition I  announced a while back. It was run by The Co-operative Electrical. I was judging along with two other judges, Becky from Baby Budgeting and Cass from Diary of a Frugal Family.

We plowed through all the entries and there were a lot, drooling over the photographs and pouring devouring the recipes We now have a winner and a runner up. The winner gets £750 worth of electrical goods and one runner up is offered £250 to spend in the online shop.


   
1st place:  
from Mess Makes Food 


2nd place: 
from My Golden Pear


There was a lot of great entries and we had a lot of discussion back and forth, but in the end we all agreed we loved these dishes which made a droolworthy meal. Both had a lot of flavour and used hearty ingredients to make a perfect winter dish. Although they were outstanding dishes, the recipes were simple and neither would break the bank. They are both comfort food at it's best and who could resist digging in?

There were three other dishes that we particularly liked. They don't win a prize, but we would love to give them a bit of recognition and a highly commended from the judges.




Highly Recommended 

Sweet Potato and Kale Bake - Wallflower Girl

Thai Yellow Noodle Soup from Bunny Kitchen 

Caramelised Onion, Feta and Warm Winter Salad Frittata - Rock 'n' Roller Baby

 

Thank you to everyone who entered.
