Look at all that lovely veg!

A selection of winter veg

I don’t have a soup recipe for you but I do have some inspiration… in the form of my weekly veg box. I recently subscribed to a regular veg box from my local greengrocers – Martin’s Fruit Bazaar and thought I should say a bit about it. I found myself in a bit of a rut, tending to stick with my tried and tested favourites. Basing my cooking around a weekly veg supply would hopefully encourage me to break my routine. I do try to eat seasonally and a veg box just makes it slightly easier to stick to that commitment.

You can suggest items that you definitely need, or don’t want. This box contained: mushrooms, onions, garlic, ginger, sweet potato, turnip, parsnip, carrots, leeks, broccoli and cauliflower. Not bad for £10.00!

How I used my veg

Mushrooms

  • Quesadillas
  • Burger topping

Onions

  • Quesadillas
  • Burger topping
  • Soup

Garlic

  • Soup

Sweet potato

  • Satay salad

Turnip

  • I didn’t have to opportunity to use it, so I prepped it and put it in the freezer for later

Carrots

  • Carrot and coriander soup
  • Salad

Parsnip

Leek

Cauliflower

  • Whole roasted cauliflower korma. The recipe came from So Vegan in 5 by Roxy Pop and Ben Pook. My favourite cook book at the moment.

Broccoli

  • Steamed as a side dish

Ginger

  • Satay salad

I’ve had a few boxes now and have thoroughly enjoyed them. I’ll definitely stick with it.
