|yellow peppers||delicious all by themselves in a light vinaigrette, or add to a rainbow-coloured stir-fry|
|cashews||great for just snacking, or soak overnight, then whirl at top speed to make a whipped topping|
|mustard seeds||pickle a peck of onions with a generous scoop of mustard seeds|
|yellow beets||not only for dinner, but think breakfast smoothie: roast and purée in high-speed blender with juice, a little cashew milk, and some lemon for zing; yummy with fresh fruit and hemp hearts|
|rutabaga||cut in half and roast as you would hasselback potatoes; sprinkle with an orange and garlic gremolata|
|walnuts||delicious in a vegan mushroom and walnut paté|
|smoked mackerel||at their peak season in July, serve flaked on any salad, fold into a paté, or sprinkle over risotto or pasta|
|chickpeas||perfect in many recipes from hummus to minestrone soup, baked for snacking, or folded into a curry|
