The veg box arrives!


Today was the day of my first veg box delivery. I'd spent the morning at the mercy of the dentist so I was glad of something to cheer me up in the afternoon! I'd ordered a small box, which turned out to be fairly big. It contained:
  • 200g kale
  • 5 carrots
  • asparagus
  • mushrooms
  • 2 courgettes
  • large bag baby spinach (more toddler than baby!)
  • large bag mixed salad leaves
  • 3 large onions
At the moment I am thinking of fish pie to use up the spinach, courgette loaf, asparagus dipped in poached eggs and a pasta sauce with the kale. I've found a recipe for the pasta sauce; if it is any good I will let you know.

I don't intend to get too obsessive about this. If I need to top up with a few bits from the supermarket then I will. I also hope to do a price comparison with the supermarket. Although I may get a few strange looks!

  1. Yum! Have you seen the recipe for zucchini fries? I want to try my hand at them.

    I've not had pasta sauce with kale so I'll be waiting for a review.

    I do like kale cooked with onion and garlic in olive oil.

    1. I haven't seen that recipe so I shall look it out. When it comes to courgettes/zucchini I need all the help I can get!
