What am I making with my organic veg boxes? Come on in, I’ll show you.

I get my veggie boxes from Whole Larder Love, and a few people lately have asked me what I’ve been making from the contents. It’s a bit fun, like a Masterchef Mystery Box, but gianter and with more cabbage. I must admit, I’ve been thinking in all sorts of traditional recipe ways when I open the box and see it…

Golden rice salad

This golden rice salad is a nice change from my usual bowl of brown rice, and is rather sunshiny now that it’s getting warmer again. The yellow is from turmeric, which is amazingly good for you, but doesn’t impart much of a flavour. Never fear, everything else makes up for it! In this salad, I mixed cooked brown rice with…

A few ideas for your winter veggie box

Howdy, gang! As I was unpacking my organics box the other day, I had to think quickly about what was to be done with all of it. Organic veggies don’t last long, and it’s horrible to waste them, so I mentally put them in order of what needed to be used first and started prepping some of them for dinners during…

Veggie meal plan

 Pin It I get asked quite a lot if there are recipes to go with my meal plans, and usually there aren’t – simply because I don’t often make the same thing twice, and I’m usually experimenting with something that will eventually end up on the blog most weeks. So I decided to make a meal plan of all the…

Veggie Meal Plan and pleading the case for independent grocers.

As part of my efforts to buy local and eventually avoid the big two supermarkets as much as I can, I decided to take a road trip to Maleny in the Sunshine Coast hinterland and see if doing my shopping at their IGA was viable. I do shop at farmer’s markets and two local fruit + veg places, but it…

Veggie meal plan

 Pin It It’s about that time of year where lots of this happens: Rugging up, watching fun things (in this case, River Cottage Spring!) and a hell of a lot of crochet. I’ve got the biggest to-do list and I’ve not even made anything for my own baby yet! Must get cracking as I’ve only got 8 or so weeks…
