What’s in your Veggie Box (4B)

Vegetables this week include: sweet potatoes, tomatoes, salad mix, yellow squash/zucchini mix, beetroot and cucumber for small and medium boxes, plus in the large box beans, leeks and radish. Fruit will be apples, blueberries and raspberries.

Please note that with the Australia Day public holiday on Tuesday, we will be delivering on Monday instead 🙂

In the small and regular boxes: sweet potatoes  – Cook up a big batch of sweet potato chips or make these delicious sweet potato and kimchi pancakes. tomatoes – We’ll be getting a combination of both roma and heirloom tomatoes this week, leave them to ripen up for a few days if they need it and make this divine yoghurt bowl with tomatoes, couscous and harissa. salad mix – Don’t forget to store your salad mix in a plastic bag or container to keep it fresh – the paper bag will take the moisture out of the leaves and it won’t last as long – put together a beautiful salad with tomatoes, cucumber, radish and your leafy mix, and if you have any nasturtiums, borage or calendula in the garden add a few flowers to make it extra beautiful! yellow squash/zucchini – A summery mix of both green zucchini and yellow squash, shave them into salads or make this wholesome happy soup with lemon and yellow squash. beetroot – Roast them up and add them to salads, or for a hearty dinner make some impressive beetroot ravioli. cucumber – This shirazi salad is a stunning jewelled salad originating from Iran – super refreshing, flavoursome and beautiful! In the large boxes: beans – If we’re lucky, we might be getting a combination of green, purple and yellow beans this week – perfect for a delicious bean and potato salad! leeks  – Sauté them and add to a scrumptious pasta sauce, or a tasty quiche with roasted tomato and sweet potato! radish – Try this wonderfully refreshing radish, cucumber and red onion salad with mint and orange blossom dressing, ideal for these hot summery days. In the fruit boxes: apples – Hopefully we can get hold of some delicious apples for you this week, this fruit season has been wildly unpredictable! blueberries – Only a few more weeks of blueberries to go, so we’re making sure to enjoy them while they are still abundant. raspberries – Finally the weather has calmed down a little, and the raspberry plants have had chance to recover – we’re so looking forward to indulging on them again!
