Finding the latest limited edition recipe box from Riverford on our doorstep last Friday really made my day. This brand new vegetarian box is in collaboration with Delicious Magazine and the recipes have been chosen by its food editor, the brilliant Rebecca Woollard.
After a busy week, I was glad to leave the meal planning to someone else!
Riverford’s recipe boxes are always bursting with delicious seasonal organic food and once again this one did not disappoint.
There is another reason why I am always thrilled about receiving one of their boxes: Graham gets so excited, he moves into the kitchen and starts cooking. The idea of having all the ingredients and recipes organised in a box ready to use is perfect for him. This time around even the kids helped! Lucky me!
Our box included 3 recipes for 2 people but the quantities were so generous, each dish stretched to our family of four.
The first recipe we made was this Fennel, Tomato & Cheese Bake. Bursting with flavour, it got full marks from the whole family. We had it with a green salad and some crunchy bread.
The next night we made a Roast Squash with Butterbean Mash and Rosemary Breadcrumbs. The squash was an orange kabocha, simply roasted and served with a garlicky mash. It had mixed success with the kids. One of our two really liked it (and that was after initially turning her nose up at something that simply looked a bit different). The other was not keen on it (again because it looked a bit different). I think it is fair to say that aside from Halloween lanterns, my children are not very keen on pumpkin anyway. It was not a recipe I would have thought of making yet it was really enjoyable.
We ended with some comforting Baked Eggs with Mushrooms, Potatoes, Spinach and Cheese. A one-pot wonder that can be served for dinner or brunch. Thumbs up all around.
Belly full and contented, I enjoyed reading through the latest edition of Delicious that was also included in this Riverford recipe box. Plenty more of scrumptious recipes there!
