I got away quite lightly with odd food cravings whilst I was pregnant, but I did eat A LOT of burritos. So many in fact that I vowed I would never even look at another one. Forever and ever after! However, there is something so deliciously convenient about having some yummy fillings all parceled up in a tortilla or a beautiful fresh green Silverbeet leaf! This week, my Petite Produce Box is a little green fiesta and even though I said I’d never go ‘there’ again, it’s just too good an opportunity to miss. Roasted Spring Vegetable Burrito with Quinoa...
In keeping with the lovely legume theme I am making a Falafel ‘style’ lentil and kumara burger with feta ‘mayo’ and (since this is legume appreciation week) a chickpea salad with celery, parsley, feta and pomegranate.

I’d like to think that throughout the year, we eat a little bit of everything in our house; you may have noted, vegetables are up there with my favourite things in life.

I truly am thankful for my Petite Produce Box for reminding me of the unsung heroes. It’s all too easy for me to cruise by certain veggies if they haven’t already been designated a purpose. Celery is a classic example. Used all too frequently for stocks and...
I promised myself I wouldn’t reference the weather..but how can I not when the sun has been shining so brightly?! Now, I probably shouldn’t go too wild, but…It’s been so long since we’ve had a bbq in our little house, I feel we deserve a little Al Fresco loving! This week, from my magical box of goodies I’m going to make some smoked tofu and vegetable red cabbage rolls. If tofu isn’t your thing, you could sub in some pre roasted mushrooms or even some meat. (Chicken or Pork works well with this recipe) I think this is the perfect...
As a new mum I find that I am often on the bottom of my list of priorities; if I don’t make a conscious effort to prepare something ahead of time for myself for lunch, then I will quite happily go ‘without’ and tell myself I’ve earned that second peanut slab after dinner. Something I have just learned after nearly 11 months…in order to look after a small person properly, you have to look after yourself too! As always I am grateful that my Petite Produce Box comes packed, loaded with care and so much beautiful fresh produce that it...
