New Veg

We get two farm delivery boxes every week here, one from Abel & Cole and one from Riverford Farms.  I almost never go to the grocery store anymore, and we get fresh organic food on our doorstep every week.  I love it.

We’ve tried several new vegetables and fruits because they’ve come in our deliveries.  Some we’ve not loved, but others have become new favorites.

This week we got a bunch of purple sprouting broccoli in our delivery, which I’d never even heard of before moving here.  I was totally unsure how to cook it.  I checked my Riverford Cookbook though, and gave it a go.

I blanched it first, then sauteed it in a wok with garlic, olive oil, lemon juice & zest, and salt.  It’s al dente — still a little crunch but easy to bite.

Guys, Matt and I were arguing over who got the last helping.  The kids INHALED it.  It was SO good.

There’s a super short window when this veg is available, but it is going on my list as a new favorite.

If you’re interested in trying out one of these farm delivery services, shoot me an email and I can refer you as a friend, then we both get money back on a fruit or veg box delivery!
