Veg box update. I slowed down on my effort to try out as many veg box purveyors as possible. I’ve found that Ocado delivers a perfectly acceptable box for a reasonable price, without requiring me to sign up for a weekly delivery — I can order a box of whatever size, full of mostly seasonal vegetables or even including fruit, at any time. The larger box mix of organic veg and fruit looks like this:
This box included things like avocado, mushrooms, potato, celery, plums, onions, swede, banana, celery, beets …
And purple carrots! I still love finding surprise vegetables in my box and trying to figure out something new to make.
Like kale, one of those green super veggies that I’ve always felt like I should like, but never gotten to know properly. Here I’ve sauted it simply, with a bit of grapeseed oil, garlic, chili flakes, vinegar, and onions. The other night I tried chopping it up a bit smaller and hiding it in pasta sauce — delicious.
Receiving a mixed veg and fruit box is like getting an unexpected birthday present. Whoo-hoo!
