Often when I see the contents of my Petite Produce Box I do a quick ‘sweep’ of the good stuff and roughly assign the fate of the beloved fruit and vegetables. In a small house of ‘near toddler' chaos this is my one opportunity of the week to seize control and independence, even if it is just putting away the groceries :) I know immediately when I see the Mushrooms that I’ll make stuffed mushrooms, Baby Spinach will either be a fresh salad or thrown into a spiced Cauliflower and lentil soup. I’ll use the other half of the Zoe’s...
Since we seem to be stuck in an Artic groove, emphasis lately has been on warming foods to keep our inner furnaces ticking along. But as I write this I see the sun is tipping his hat to me so I am inspired to direct my bounty of Petite Produce towards wholesome and nourishing salads. My nerdy, vegetable loving heart skips a beat when I see that Te Manaia Organic Red Kale is back in the box this week; earthy Beetroot to be eaten raw or roasted, Te Manaia Organic sprout combo for punch and protein, Avocado for creamy goodness...
This week our Petite Produce Box is crying out to be stewed, souped and stuffed! Te Manaia Organic Cavolo Nero, Zoe's Garden Brown Onions and Tomatoes just happen to be the headliners for my one pot wonder Kale and White Bean Stew. If you don’t like the ‘beany’ element you can substitute Zoes Garden Agria Potatoes instead. Cut them up into cubes, keep the skin on and pop them in! This dish has many incarnations, I make it a few times a month (I never get bored of these classic flavours) and always manage a smug ‘high five’ to myself...
Every so often I get a ‘whiff’ of something British and I lose myself in a bit of nostalgia. It’s usually something trivial that catches me off guard; a Royal Christening, a heat wave, Wimbledon..but this week it is something quite significant. The Brussel Sprout. This mighty green nugget has whipped me into a patriotic frenzy; so painstakingly British that I can’t even walk passed one without humming 'God Save the Queen'. So quite simply I have to honour it. This little vegetable gets a bit of a bum deal, but this is largely due to over cooking; what it...
There are some weeks when the Petite Produce Box is so full to the brim of my favourite things; I am overwhelmed with vegetable love. Te Manaia Purple Sprouting Broccoli has to be up there with reasons to get out of bed on a rainy day. Keep the stems long, roast and toss them in sesame oil, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and dunk in garlicky hummus for a sesame fiesta. Or maybe a quick and colourful comfort dinner of sweet, earthy Beetroot grated with lime, salt, pepper; add some avocado, roasted pumpkin seeds and jam into a baked Kumara...
