Julie Biuso's shared Kitchen

Make that a triple serving ...
1st October is World Vegetarian Day, not something that is ever going to slip under my radar because, in case you hadn't noticed, we're rather fond of vegetables at Shared Kitchen. In fact, we're crazy about them. Beats me though, why potatoes continue to get a bad rap, especially when 2008 was declared the International Year of the Potato by the United Nations (oh, how I rejoiced!), drawing attention to the role the potato plays in eradicating world poverty. Bring it on, I reckon (more potatoes, I mean, and addressing poverty). So enough of this talk that tatties once a week is enough. Never! Get on to this recipe of gorgeous golden potatoes NOW before summer sees expensive boxes of designer potatoes flooding the markets. If you are in cooler climes, this recipe will be right up your alley; downunder, we've got to get a march on! And there's also a recipe for transforming broccoli from weekday green to a bowl of deliciousness. Spuds and broccoli, cheap, easy to find and good for you. Nothing better for a World Vegetarian Day menu ... just add in a good mixed salad with masses of fresh herbs, avocado and a few nuts and you're good to go.

Baked Potatoes in White Wine

White wine keeps the interior of these potatoes nice and fluffy, but the outsides develop a good golden crunch. Pretty good, yep.

Broken Broccoli

Extra virgin olive oil, garlic and parmesan are broccoli's best friends. Just trot them all out together and wait for the response.
