Red ratatouille risotto

Lisa

This vegan recipe by the BOSH! guys (Henry Firth and Ian Theasby) is both summery and sustaining and it’s a great match for Regather veg box contents right now. The ‘Red’ is a nod to red wine in lieu of the traditional white for a risotto. No worries if you don’t have quite enough fresh tomato weight – perhaps bump …

Sweet potato with mozzarella, onions and basil

Lisa

Recipe recommended by our lovely customer Hannah – it’s one of her favourites. It’s from The Green Roasting Tin by Rukmini Iyer (an excellent gift book for the busy foodies in your life). Sweet potatoes are always available as an extra for your veg box from the Regather online shop and are in peak season now (December).

Cherry tomato salsa

Francesca

Organic cherry tomatoes are plentiful right now and we’re very happy to have bumper bags of them in this week’s boxes. It’s perfect weather for easy homemade tomato salsa. Use as a condiment for things cooked on the barbecue – burgers, fish, halloumi or veggie fritters – or just get stuck in with a bag of tortilla chips.

Radish, lentil and mint salad

Francesca

We’re loving the bunches of pretty radishes in your boxes this week, like Spring baubles. Radishes are delicious just eaten raw and unadorned – so crisp and peppery – or dipped into hummus.

Spicy carrot, coconut and cumin soup

Francesca

There’s something so comforting yet also luxurious about the rich and velvety finished product, if the carrots’ sweetness is offset well by spices or chilli heat and/or herby and earthy tones. This great recipe by Kiwi chef Peter Gordon (from the book ‘Sugar Club’) achieves that …

Brussels sprout nasi goreng

Francesca

We welcome brussels sprouts back this week. The only intro necessary for this vegan recipe is a quote from Meera Sodha, its creator: “This Malaysian fried rice dish is so deliciously filthy, you may well scrap takeaways altogether.” You can buy kecap manis, the sweet thick soy sauce, in larger supermarkets or online.And it goes without saying that sprouts should …

Red onion bhajis with garlic and mint raita

Francesca

This week we welcome the arrival of lovely red onions. Along with garlic from the Regather farm and Ishikura spring onions, it’s something of an allium festival. Some boxes will have the full allium trio! If you have red onions, why not use a couple of them to cook some delicious, moreish bhajis and use some garlic in a raita. …
