This week’s boxes

This week both our £25 and £15 boxes include all the ingredients to make our delicious chestnut and lentil soup. We seem to say this every week but this soup is definitely one of our favourites, as daft as it sounds, it tastes like pea and ham soup, but this is definitely vegetarian. Perfect for this time time of the year and filling enough for a complete meal.

We are keeping everything light and easy this week, we have included baking potatoes for a delicious simple, filling meal. For the perfectly baked potatoes heat the oven to 220C, rub a little oil and seasoning over the potatoes, then bake on a baking sheet for 25 mins. Turn down the oven to 190C and bake for 1 hr-1 hr 15 minutes more until the flesh is tender and the skin crisp and golden, then all you need to do is add your favourite topping.

Savoy cabbage is at it very best at the moment, we love this simple recipe using our new season Navelina oranges.

Heat a dry frying pan over a medium heat. Add 50g of pine nuts and toast for 3 minutes, moving constantly, until golden. Set aside on a plate.
For the dressing, add 2 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp cider vinegar, zest of 1 orange and 1 heaped tsp of Dijon mustard in a lidded jar and shake well. Set aside.
Heat oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Add the cabbage and cook, tossing, for 6-8 minutes, until wilted. Transfer to a serving dish and scatter over the pine nuts and spoon over the dressing, serve immediately.

Our £25 box includes vegetables perfect for a quick stir fry, add noodles and a stir fry sauce for a perfect meal. (Our Coconut Kitchen chilli, garlic and basil stir fry sauce is perfect)
