Spring is Here!

Hello lovelies!

Yes, I know, stating the obvious but spring has officially arrived in the Sparkle and Shade household for one reason and one reason only - our organic veg box delivery no longer contains swede and celeriac! Hallelujah! I am not a root veg loving girl.... the odd potato or carrot here and there is fine, but generally speaking, not a fan. Too stodgy and not enough like a vegetable for my liking! Let me share with today's beautiful delivery:

Oooo what could be lurking in there? (Apologies for all the shadows - crazy sun!)

A big, beautiful cauliflower!

Some yummy red skinned potatoes!

A super cute butternut squash!

Some delicious muddy carrots and lovely little onions!

An epicly huuuuge bunch of pak choi!

And a beastly bunch of Spring Greens!

I am so, so, so excited about this box of veg - it's one of the best we've had for a while! Spring greens and pak choi are vegetables I've not really cooked with much either, so it's a good excuse to find some new delicious recipes.

Despite the fact that winter was a hard slog, I really do love our veg box - it's supporting a local farmer, it forces us to eat seasonally and introduces us to vegetables we wouldn't normally buy. We pay £8.50 a week for a small veg box and that's more than enough for the two of us eating a vegetarian diet (we sometimes buy some extra mushrooms or peppers but that's about it). If you're York based, I definitely suggest you check out SB Organics :)

Do you have an organic veg box delivered? If not, would you like to/what puts you off?

What are your favourite recipes featuring the ingredients in this week's veg box?
