Slaw Season

Lisa

Get ready to shred.  We’re into coleslaw season now, starring so many of our lovely organic veg:  cabbages (red, green or white), carrots, beetroot, kohlrabi, celeriac, onions, fennel and winter radishes. When a rich, warming soup or stew is on the table, I really crave something fresh, raw and crunchy on the side. Coleslaw is also perfect with a burger. …

Spiced beetroot hummus

Lisa

Our veg boxes are so vivid in September/October, studded with colourful organic carrots, beetroots and squashes. This week, beets are the recipe focus and it was a toss-up whether to go for a healthy beetroot dip or beetroot chocolate muffins. We’ve taken the savoury route – recipe from Dr Rupy Aujla and published on BBC food. Ideally don’t squander the …

Beetroot and feta tart

Lisa

Having grown up knowing beetroot only as vinegary slices in jars from the shop, it’s been a right pleasure making friends properly with beetroot as an adult, on the allotment and in the kitchen (and at Regather, of course). Mid-summer organic beetroots fresh from the field are just lovely – and so, so versatile. This simple savoury tart recipe from …

Beetroot carpaccio

Lisa

Another recipe inspired by the launch of our new organic Salad box. Ultra-thin raw beetroot slices sent to umami-flavoured heaven with a dressing of balsamic vinegar, lemon, olive oil, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce and yogurt. Recipe by Jamie Oliver and republished on The Happy Foodie. Quantities easily halved if you only have a couple of beetroots to hand.

Citrus and cashew nut salad (with winter veg)

Lisa

Another excellent Nigel Slater recipe from a recent edition of Observer Food Monthly. Regather box contents in February/March are absolutely made for this dish: grapefruit, orange, beetroot, cabbage, fennel, celeriac. Plus cashew nuts and a very zingy dressing. You can substitute other preferred root veg (e.g. carrot) and green cabbage for the red, or why not sprinkle on some lush …

Beetroot party with orange and pine nuts

Lisa

Beetroots are such a loyal culinary friend in the veg box, summer through winter. This gorgeous, vivid, ultra-healthy dish uses them cooked AND raw, accompanied by lentils and pine nuts. Flavoured with zingy fresh orange, apple cider vinegar, honey and parsley. A great way to make use of the nutritious zest from the organic oranges in your Regather fruit boxes …

Beetroot and apple soup

Marinated beetroot with grilled goat’s cheese

Francesca

If you have beetroot in your veg box today or lingering from last week, this is a great way to give this humble root the star treatment. So simple, surprisingly delicious and the crimson, white and green looks very alluring on the plate. A fantastic starter or light lunch alongside some good bread. Recipe from bbcgoodfood.com. The beetroot slices need …

Root vegetable pachadi

Francesca

This Meera Sodha recipe was published with post-Christmas in mind but really it’s a lovely (and so nutritious) weekend lunch at any time of the winter. And so flexible: pick out whatever root veg take your fancy from the box. Shredded kale instead of sprouts would be fine. And bear in mind that beetroot will make the whole thing pink!

Beetroot Borani – Iranian Yoghurt dip

Francesca

Have you ever been to Morito, the North African and Middle Eastern inspired tapas haven in London’s Exmouth Market? They really make a beetroot shine! One of our fab customers recommended this recipe last year, when I was stuck in a seasonal beetroot cul-de-sac and couldn’t think of anything new to do with it. This recipe is “dead quick – …
