I always struggle with vegetables. Not because I don’t like them but because they always look so unattractive to me on the shelves. They just don’t inspire me visually in the same way that steak does. Which means I always have to force myself to do some veg sidedish along with the proper cooking. A rather nice way of handling veg is making Juliennes.

The method I found for that was to slice the veg – say carrots of celery stalks – into thin angular sticks. Then you boil them a little and perhaps give them a little fry at the end with a generous helping of butter and spices to taste. The result is quite lovely and I enjoyed it.

Juliennes in a pot

Er right, and I’m also a fan of chopping vegetables. So this doesn’t just taste nice but it’s fun to make as well.

If you were to rinse the veggies after slicing them, would you use a “julienne colander”?
