Snow Peas (medium boxes) – Who doesn’t love the delicate crunch and sweetness of snow peas, and what better way to enjoy them than this snow pea, mushroom and noodle stir fry?
Manzana chilli (small and large boxes) – Though they may have the similar round shape of a bell pepper, these little glossy beauties are extremely hot and the utmost caution is advised when handling and eating them! Enjoy a nice kick in this guacamole with chilli.
In the large boxes:
Leeks – A classic favourite, here’s a leek and potato soup to warm your soul.
Potatoes – There are infinite possibilities of cooking up your spuds, and with this week’s veg it’s a perfect opportunity to make a potato bake with avocado, mushrooms and seeds.

In the large boxes:
Mandarins – We get to enjoy more of these glorious mandies this week, they really are one of my favourite sweet, succulent snacks!
Packham Pears – Word on the street is that there is an excess of champagne this year, so grab a bottle of sparkling and make these exquisite champagne and rosewater poached pears.
Oranges – Fennel and orange are the perfect pair, and why not toss in an extra colour and flavour as well to make this fennel, beet and orange salad.
