Veg Box Newsletter 20/1/2020: It’s time for marmalade!

Hello Folks, What a busy week we’ve had! We’ve got lots of improvements going on behind the scenes here at Veg Box HQ, and are excited for our veg boxes and our service to be better than ever soon. Meanwhile, we’ve been putting together lovely boxes for you for this week to brighten the grey…

Squash Noodle Soup Recipe

This is lightly adapted from Nigel Slater’s recipe for Pumpkin Laksa in his wonderful book Tender. It’s creamy and spicy and surprisingly easy, a deep bowl of comforting flavour. The bright colour of the squash- I used onion squash but any hard-skinned and firm-fleshed squash will do- contrasts with the mild herby green of the…

Veg Box Newsletter 13th January: Just Call it Joy-nuary

January can be so glum and dour but there’s a joy to be found in eating even the grey seasons. Perhaps we’re all getting a little tired now of the root veg, the beetroot and celeriac and sprout tops and what not, but that is inspiration to be a little more creative.

Onion squash with sausages, apples and shallots

I love cooking while it’s raining out. My kitchen warm, the window fogged up as I potter about with a podcast on. It’s comforting to have enough ingredients in my cupboards that I don’t need to run out and get soaked. What’s even better is a dinner that takes care of itself after a while…

Why Mud is Good

Last year we did a survey of veg box customers to find out what you love and what we can improve on in 2020. One of the most frequent requests was for clean veg or something in the bottom of boxes to stop mud falling out. I get this. I am a veg box customer…

Cashew Curry Recipe

It’s cold, it’s January, it’s dark! Why not add some warm spices and exotic flavours to your dinner tonight & transport your tastebuds to Sri Lanka? This curry recipe is really simple, quick to prepare and Veganuary friendly. It takes less than an hour (plus soaking the cashews) and is very little work. The flavours…

Veg Box Newsletter for 9th December 2019: Potatolitics

Hello Folks, What are you eating on election night? Something soothing to calm the nerves, like a creamy swede mash with sausages? Or something invigorating and peppery like a watercress soup? I think I’ll make a pizza so I can work out my worry on the dough. Perhaps a potato pizza, as it’s delicious enough…

Veg Box Newsletter w/c. 2nd December: the calm before the storm

Hello Folks, Today was a beautiful day, with a clear, blue sky and frosty ground. Veg Box HQ looked ethereal in the clear afternoon light. It’s almost December, which, let’s face it, means it’s basically Christmas, so I know all the whirl and rush is about to start. I love Christmas, and even the hustle…
