How to get 10 fruit and vegetable servings per day

We've long been told to get our "5 a day", but new studies show that 10 portions of fruit and vegetables per day is much much better. Eating 10 servings per day was associated with a 24% reduced risk of heart disease and a 33% reduced risk of strike (amongst numerous other benefits).

Fortunately, most of us plant-based eaters are probably getting our 10 a day as it is. But if you're looking for more ways to up your veg, here are 10 veg-packed recipes to give you some inspiration:
