Jerusalem artichokes are delicious; they grow underground like potatoes and are easy to grow in most types of soil, especially alkaline soil. Sweet, nutty and crisp, they're a great addition to a stir fry and they're lovely raw in a salad too.

Parsnips are another tasty root vegetable that doesn't seem to be so popular these days except perhaps for Christmas dinner. They are easy to grow and are absolutely gorgeous roasted with honey. They're also very versatile, steam them or mash them for a low calorie alternative to potatoes, They're also good in a soup or stew.

Kale is a leafy green vegetable with some major health benefits. It's packed full of fibre, it will help to lower cholesterol and it's also thought to help reduce the risks of getting several types of cancer.  It's absolutely jam packed full of vitamins and minerals, it's one of the healthiest vegetables you can eat. Simply steam it and have it as a side dish to any meal.
