These veggie packs are always a winner! It’s the perfect way to make use of left-over veggies in the fridge, and since every member gets his or her own pack, you can fill it up with the vegetables you prefer. Think sweet potato, corn, peppers, mushrooms, butternut and shallots… Below is our standard family veggie pack recipe. Feel free to play around with a variety of herbs and sauces to spice up your packs and surprise your guests. You can enjoy this as a braai side or eat it as a main with rice (like you would a veggie potjie).
