Pick ‘n’ mix veggie ideas
› Carrot › Onion › Potato
› Zucchini › Corn › Sweet potato
› Squash › Parsnip › Peas
Tip: Squeeze the juice out of your grated veggies before adding to the egg mixture.
Tip: Depending on which veggies you use, you might need to cook these on a lower heat for at least 10 minutes either side i.e. pumpkin tastes a bit strange when raw.
