New Zealand is home to some great dishes including lamb, pork, meat pies, pasties, sausage rolls, kumara, pipis, trifle and pavlova.

Such a great and easy way to eat these healthy orange and red vegetables. A great vegetarian side dish.
In the past when I have made vegetarian burritos for meat-eaters, they've said that they "miss the meat"... At this point, I used to ask them why they didn't just marry meat if they loved it so much... but now I follow this recipe instead. And all is well. I actually enjoy this recipe with some extra chilli (besides what is in the taco sauce). Also, you can use sweet potato or kumara.
A boil up is a New Zealand method of cooking that uses root veges and meat, boiled in a stockpot. Try this tasty and economical version.
