Gonion pasta sauce

A British farmer has developed a hybrid vegetable that's a cross between onion and garlic. It's called a gonion and John Whaite tests it for himself by using it to make a classic pasta sauce.

Meanwhile Fiona Phillips chats to vegetable grower Ria Pofoll about the other weird and wonderful veggie creations she's growing, including the spabbage (spinach and cabbage) and caddish (carrot and radish)!

As the first harvest of the gonion has only recently been bought to our attention, you may presently find it difficult to get hold of. If this is the case, then here is an alternative, yet similar, recipe for you to try

Lazy braised beef cobbler

A perfect Sunday lunch without all the pans, washing up and expense of a roast, Dean's lazy braised beef is lazy by name and nature. Just pop it in the oven and put your feet up. The gravy, veg, meat AND his alternative to Yorkshire puddings (crispy cobbler topping) are all in one pot!
