How to Unicorn Your Food

Put a splash of colour and vibrancy into your food with Kat Odell’s top tips for this Instagram trend

I always try to cook with the most naturally colourful foods, because they are higher in antioxidants than those that are pale. Plus, coloured foods look prettier on a plate! I’ve put together a list of the rainbow of ingredients that I incorporate into my cooking most often – foods that add both nutrition and colour to an endless slew of dishes.

PURPLE

Purple cabbage: As with beetroot, when you boil this cabbage in water, the vegetable’s pigment leaches into the water, staining it dark purple.
