I had a lovely lot of vegetables in my second veg box. A lot of the veg was different to my usual supermarket fare and I had varying degrees of success in rendering it acceptable to the rest of the family.
There was a squash with a name like a martial art - red hokkaido. This went in a "winter squash and feta gratin". The recipe for this is available here. DD and I liked this, but the menfolk were less enamoured. I always have difficulty with squash and would appreciate any suggestions.
The spring greens went into a beef stirfry with some of the mushrooms (recipe here). This also had mixed reactions, mostly because the meat was too chewy.
The cauliflower went into a cauliflower cheese with breadcrumb topping. This was seriously nice. It's just a shame it is seriously calorific as well!
The box included baby courgettes, which had me stumped. I still had a courgette loaf in the freezer from last week's offerings. I decided to try courgette crisps, or zucchini chips for any non-British readers. There are recipes in British English here, and in non-British English here! These really didn't work very well. I think I sliced them too thickly and then drowned them in olive oil so they didn't dry out properly. They were tasty, and the kids ate them within five minutes, but they weren't crisps. Nor chips!
Fortunately the carrots, onions and lettuce were much easier to deal with! At the moment I have kept my wastage fairly low; one small carrot went mouldy and I still have a surfeit of onions. The next box has been delivered. I went for a mini version this time with extra salad. I am happy to keep posting my round ups if anyone is interested, or if you are getting bored with "fifty ways with cabbage" then let me know!
