So, instead, we got a whole host of veggie delights this week:
We cooked up a delicious winter salad with a beetroot, some kohlrabi, apple, pepper and matchsticks of Russian kale. Mixed with Puy lentils and pearl barley, this made an amazing hot meal, and great cold lunches, too! I served this with kale, stir fried with garlic and lemon grass.
After my flute lesson on Tuesday I came home to the delicious smell of roasting winter veg: carrots, parsnip, onion, apple and walnuts. Amazing!
Tonight I've cooked one of my favourite indulgent meals: vegetable pilaf, or 'rice bowl' as it is fondly known in our household! Cubes of beetroot and kohlrabi simmered with rice, butterbeans and spices, and more of that amazing stir fried kale on the side!
I also cooked up a quick carrot and ginger soup for post-race goodness, and the cauliflower has been saved for a Friday night curry tomorrow! We've already got our next veg box, and there's a big selection of exciting things to try out over the coming week - can't wait!
