Plant to plate with VegTrug

Pak Choi

August is usually one of the hottest months of the year – meaning it’s essential to water crops well. August is traditionally holiday time, so you may also need to ask a friend, family member or neighbour to look after the garden while you are away. Try to use grey water – which is relatively clean waste water from kitchens and bathrooms – wherever possible to water your garden in an eco-friendly fashion. When you are at home, take the time to prune existing plants once they have finished flowering and harvest your freshly grown fruit and veg. You should have a lot of harvest in this month, which will be great for light, summer dinners and means less trips to the supermarket. Although August is coming to the end of the main growing season, you can sow and plant produce, such as oriental crops including pak choi, Chinese cabbage, and fast-growing salads in the place of crops that need to be pulled up after they have been harvested.

About PlantBased

Summer is in full swing, which means it’s time to take advantage of the fresh fruit and veg which fills our supermarket shelves – and if we’re lucky – our gardens, too. This month, we’ve included a wide range of dishes to help put your produce to good use, by including recipes for fresh salads (p24), delicious fruit tarts (p41) and authentic Asian dishes (p71). As August gifts us with long, warm evenings, it’s the perfect time to throw a garden party – but why not add a fun, Mexican twist? On page 28, we share our tips on how to throw a successful fiesta, followed by five recipes that will leave your guests wanting more. However nice the summer sun is, it can be easy to forget how important it is to protect our skin. Turn to page 76 to find Dr Diccardo Di Cuffa’s advice on how to stay safe in the sun. Later in the mag, we head to Cape Town to explore the plant-based options the city has to offer, while recommending a host of restaurants you must try when visiting the cape. We also share a veganised recipe of the Bobotie – a classic South African dish, originally made with meat – let us know what you think of it. Enjoy the issue.
