Sformato (Italian eggy veggie bake)

Lisa

I spotted this “mosaic of a flan” recipe by Rachel Roddy in The Guardian recently and knew it was perfect to go out on the Regather recipe page for Easter week. There are eggs! There are lots of veggies! And the veg component is pretty flexible according to what goodies you have in your boxes.

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.

It’s always lovely to see the crates of Regather farm produce arriving at …

This summery stew emerged from a hankering for something light and tangy to plonk onto a bowl of plain leftover couscous prior to heading to the pub, with about 20 minutes to do it.  There was a Regather fennel bulb begging for attention. Very fresh, very rustic. Variation:  if you don’t like or have fennel, this could be adapted for …
