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!
