Pink & purple reign

January feels like a distant past already, especially when you incorporate this colourful selection of ingredients into your meals. As well as tasting delicious, they all have the added benefit of being super healthy and good for you too!

Purple sprouting broccoli

A sign that spring lies tantalising close around the corner, these beautifully-coloured spears are a joy to behold. It’s slightly more expensive than traditional broccoli due to its short crop time, but well worth the extra pennies just to add some variety to the usual winter vegetable fayre! We say savour these tender spears while you can. ..

Try this: make a delicious tart by frying off a red onion, some purple sprouting broccoli and a red chilli. Roll out some bought puff pastry and cover with the mixure. Glaze with beaten egg and scatter on some feta cubes. Bake until golden

Forced rhubarb

Another welcome sight to the winter table are these stunning, jewel-coloured stems of rhubarb, grown specially to brighten up our winter days! Sweeter and more tender than its late spring counterpart, forced rhubarb can add colour and flavour to sweet and savoury dishes.

Try this: make a simple yet sensational salad by cooking a few stems of rhubarb in butter and sugar until just tender. Make a dressing with olive oil, mustard, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Arrange some salad leaves on a plate, and dress. Lay the cooked rhubarb batons over the leaves and sprinkle on some goats cheese. Top with some toasted seeds

Pink grapefruit

A sweeter, sunnier variety than its white or red-fleshed cousins, pink grapefruit is one of the best ways to start your morning. It is best enjoyed unadulterated – simply peel the skin and eat like an orange or slice the flesh away from the pithy skin using a grapefruit knife and spoon. Grapefruit can also be enjoyed in savoury salads along with flavours such as coriander, chilli, other citrus fruit, shellfish and salad leaves.

Try this: create a breakfast salad by combining one pink grapefruit, one orange and one clementine. Scatter over the zest and juice of another clementine. Top with toasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds, chopped pistachios, honey and fromage frais.

Purple grapes

Grapes may be one of the most versatile fruits. Not only are they delicious eaten out of hand, they are delicious in fruit salads and savoury salads.

Table grapes (those that are eaten fresh) come in a verity of greens, reds and purples but nutritionally, red and black grapes have a slight edge over other types. That’s because of their association with the powerful antioxidant resveratrol,  thought to help protect against heart disease and cancers.

Try this: liven up a chicken salad by showering cooked chicken with halved red grapes, chopped walnuts, and celery. Toss on a bed of leaves and drizzle with your favourite dressing – we think Kit’s Kitchen Jungle Juice is particularly good with this dish.
