Leek and cheese pancakes


For Pancake Day this year, let’s go Welsh with a savoury leek and cheese filling. We have leeks in most veg boxes this week, plus little bags of mushrooms. A few sautéed mushrooms would be delicious on top of the pancakes.  Recipe from Mari Williams on bbc.co.uk/food. The Welsh translation for the dish is wonderful: Crempog cennin a caws Caerphilly.

Veg dumplings for Lunar New Year


On Sunday 22 January, it’s Lunar New Year aka Chinese New Year. It’s Year of the Rabbit! If you’ve ever wanted to make your own dumplings, now is the time.

Roasted sweet potato, leek, celeriac and cashew nut wellington


Merry Christmas! Embrace the Welly.  I cannot resist pastry in any form – so a wellington or savoury strudel is the classic I go for at Christmas. It satisfies the eye as well as the palate and the tum, and it’s a brilliant vehicle for our organic veg. We’ve picked a vegan welly that’s not overly elaborate, using ready-prepped puff …



If there was ever a dish perfectly pitched for our veg boxes in the late autumn, it’s the Tuscan ribollita. I’ve long been a fan of this thick, rustic, ultra-nutritious soup of beans and veg, so was curious to see Felicity Cloake’s take on it for her regular column in The Guardian. This is a good recipe for batch-cooking too …

Black rice stuffed pumpkin


A baked and stuffed winter squash or pumpkin is such a gorgeous, enticing dish. With Halloween and Bonfire Night around the corner, for the filling you can’t go wrong with a smoky bean chilli (recipes abound on the web). But for something a bit different – still umami-rich and nutritious – try this dish by Sophie Gordon from the book …

Rice and peas (and broad beans) – Italian style


What to do with the lovely organic broad beans and peas fresh from the farm? This dish is a version of Risi e Bisi – traditional Venetian rice and peas. Like a slightly soupy risotto, but not requiring the constant stirring.  The recipe is adapted from one by Henry Dimbleby and Jane Baxter – it’s designed (pragmatically) for frozen peas …

Crispy Greek-style pie for Easter


Happy Easter! Looking for a lovely vegetarian option for the coming long weekend? Here’s a super-flexible one, using organic veg from the box. Recipe adapted from bbcgoodfood.com. Use chard or kale instead of spinach if you need to: as with spinach, be sure to squeeze as much moisture as possible from the wilted greens. You could also add chopped spring …

Cheesy leek and butterbean patties with sun-dried tomatoes


Loving the beautiful young leeks in the veg box lately. Sometimes they’re just too nice for a classic leek and potato soup, a delicious staple though that is. These fried patties are very more-ish and go well with oven-cooked, skin-on chips or wedges made from organic spuds or sweet potatoes. And a bowl of peppery green salad leaves from Regather …

Roast root vegetable soup


If you’re looking for a healthy seasonal veg soup recipe to recalibrate your post-Christmas body and mind, look no further! No fewer than SEVEN items from the typical Regather veg/fruit array in December/January – nine if you count the optional extras of fresh organic ginger and garlic. Huge thanks to customer Annette for submitting this recipe.
