RE: Braai Vegetable Mix

Here's a variation on the recipe posted by Joanne.

We have huge wild mushrooms here called makawi (sp) which I use as a
base to load other veggies into, such as peas, sweetcorn, sliced
baby marrows (courgettes) - oh, let your imagination run wild on

I sprinkle fresh, chopped herbs, seasoning etc over the top, wrap it
in foil, and either braai (barbeque) it or oven bake it.  The
moisture from the veggies steam everything without the addition of
any extra, although a couple of drops of soy sauce adds a good

I have also varied this by adding chunks of tofu for extra "body" or
a dollop of fatfree cottage cheese.
