The way the box scheme works means that you should always have a supply of potatoes, carrots and onions in your cupboard. You’ll also get some kind of salad most of the year, and a ‘green’ item like cabbage or kale. Here’s an example of one customer’s veggie week – the takeaway’s not compulsory, but it gives you an idea!
My Veggie Week:
September Standard Veg Bag
Potatoes, Carrots, Onions, Salad leaves, Tomatoes, Kale, Cauliflower, Squash, Mushrooms
(Using Garlic, Leeks and Beetroot from previous week)
Burgers in buns with salad leaves and tomatoes
Thursday (Cooking for Friends):
Mackerel with a herb crust with:
garlic/ginger kale, roast squash, cauliflower cheese
Cook potatoes into wedges. Half into the freezer.
Eat half with takeaway pizza
Mushrooms/tomatoes with cooked breakfast
Roast squash soup, salad
Frozen pie with boiled carrots and leeks
Sausage and mash, steames Kale
Pasta sauce – Chard, onions, garlic
Carrot/cauliflower/beetroot coleslaw with Jacket potato
If you are a real planner, or have extremely specific likes and dislikes, the box scheme might not be for you but you can shop at either one of our stalls – at the Hornbeam on Saturdays, or at the Hawkwood Farm Stall on Wednesdays.
