Veg ideas from The Botanical Baker

August 08, 2014

Here are some lovely veg box ideas from Urvashi Roe, aka The Botanical Baker. She's used the box throughout the week and come up with a nice balance of simple fresh salads , with a few naughty desserts thrown in ;) She also had some lovely words to say about our boxes and that's really made our day :)

"The range of fruit and veg was perfect for weekend eating.  I started with a Shakshuka which used the onions (not shown), spinach, pak choi and marrow.  I loosely followed this Gardener’s Green Shakhuka Recipe at Food To Glow’s blog.


Shakshuka – a perfect brunch

Fennel and Nicola Baby Potato Salad which really was just boiled potatoes, sliced fennel mixed with some crème fraiche and seasoned with black pepper and also a Fennel, Barley and Feta Salad ….

We ate the tomatoes and purple mange touts with mozzarella and some salad leaves; the melon as a snack on it’s own to cool down after a busy morning at the allotment; the carrots went into a pie and were the most ‘carroty’ carrots I have tasted for a while; leaving the pears which I am yet to scoff."

Cheers Urvashi!
