The British Growers team celebrated the release of Veg Powers ITV advert with an indulgent and elaborate Vegetable themed lunch.

Vegetables invaded the office last week and our brave team took the advice of the advert and “ate them to defeat them”. The team made the pesky vegetables into a wonderful selection of vegetable filled foods including:

  • Sweet Potato Quesadillas
  • Carrot Cake
  • Cauliflower and Broccoli Macaroni Cheese
  • Celeriac and Apple soup
  • Cauliflower, Broccoli & Potato Cheese Bake
  • Vegetable Curry
  • Ratatouille
  • Courgette and Lime Cake
  • Chocolate and Beetroot Muffins
  • Veg Power Flapjacks
  • Cauliflower and Broccoli cheese
  • Leek Soup
  • Shallow Fried Curried Cauliflower

Many of the recipes featured above were from the brilliant Veg Power recipe book.

The team are a healthy bunch usually and it didn’t take a lot of persuasion to get their oven gloves on and rise to the challenge. If Paul Hollywood had been there he would have been handing out handshakes left, right and centre.

British Growers have been closely involved with the Veg Power campaign from the concept and want to encourage their staff and their members to support the campaign. If you want to find out more about the campaign and how to get involved, please visit or email Claire Wright
