What Vegetable Goes with Strawberries?

Strawberries with spring vegetables and asparagus.

In case you didn’t know, Strawberries are aggregate fruits that come from the flowering part of the plant and contain seeds. So, no. They are not vegetables as some people think. Now that we’ve put the “fruits that are actually vegetables” debate to rest, if you love strawberries, but want to transform it from something sweet and red to something sophisticated, then here are a few pairings of strawberries and vegetables that go well together.

Spinach

Admit it. You didn’t see this coming. Preparing food with spinach first began in Persia. It is linked to beets and quinoa and belongs to the amaranth family. It’s also regarded to be filled with important vitamins and minerals, as well as. Strawberries may do great alone, but it’s very tasty in a salad. Strawberries provide sweetness, and both flavors just blend well together. And, the fact that you combined fruit and veggies in a bowl impresses every one of your friends and family. But, you should make sure that the spinach is well chopped.

Rhubarb

Rhubarb is a strange plant. It’s something that everyone knows about, yet it’s still a mystery to a lot of people. For example, you’ve undoubtedly had a slice of rhubarb pie or a slice of rhubarb cake, but when was the last time you bought it at the store or at a farmers market? Is it really possible for you to answer the question, “What is rhubarb?”

Antioxidants abound in rhubarb, especially anthocyanins (which give it its red color) and proanthocyanidins. Anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer characteristics of these antioxidants can protect you against a variety of health problems, including heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.

Rhubarb is a wonderful seasonal plant that is also extremely simple to cultivate. It gives strawberries a boost, especially if their flavor is a little underwhelming, as may happen when strawberries are out of season. Strawberry-rhubarb salad is especially popular.

Chili

What happens when you bite on a chili accidentally? You rush for something sweet (or a glass of cold water). Here’s another weird pairing that works – strawberries and chili. This is why you will find strawberries and chili jams and strawberries and chili sauce. So, why do they work together so well? If you accidentally put too much chili in anything, the greatest way to temper the heat is to add sweetness. Strawberries are an excellent choice. Strawberry chili jam is a good option. Alternatively, strawberries may be used as a hidden ingredient in your next chili. That’s one we’ll keep to ourselves.

Because berries naturally contain pectin, they are ideal for creating fruit jam without adding it. The sweetness of the strawberries complements the heat of the chilies in this jam, which may be made with fresh or frozen strawberries. If you’re using frozen strawberries, thoroughly defrost them before using them, juice, and everything.

Rosemary

Strawberries also go well with rosemary, which is why you can find them in strawberry and rosemary cocktails and strawberry and rosemary cakes. We all know how well mint and strawberries go together, but rosemary and strawberries are also a marriage made in heaven. Give it a shot at some point. Basil is also a delicious flavor combination, and it gives you another use for that pot of rosemary on your kitchen windowsill.

Mushrooms

We already paired strawberries with spinach, but add mushrooms to the mix, and you get a whole new dimension of flavor. To prepare, combine the spinach, strawberries, mushrooms, and bacon in a large salad bowl. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad and toss to coat.
