With plant-based diets becoming ever more popular, and consumers' increasing awareness of how far their food has travelled, this brand new 7-part series of Grow, Cook, Eat is landing on our screens at the perfect time.
In tonight's episode, heads of Iceberg lettuce are set aside to make room for exotic cousins - mizuna, rocket and, mustard greens. Get the recipe for the team's Asian Greens with a Miso Tahini Dressing and Maple Pecans here.
