So, when Millies contacted me asking if I wanted to try out a vegetable box from a farm only 6 miles from my house, I got pretty excited!
The box was so big my little arms couldn't carry it and I had to pack it into a couple of bags. It was full of some of my favorites (chilies, smoked garlic, broccoli), some things I wouldn't usually choose (parsley, cabbage, rhubarb) and even a few things I couldn't even identify (kohlrabi anyone!? Cavolo Nero maybe?). A million different meal ideas started running through my head; I was excited to make something new and different. It all looked so good. It is so amazing that all this was grown on Whiteleys Farm only a few miles from my house.
Rhubarb mini-pies, roasted squash stew, chili jam, kholrabi-slaw? The first thing I decided to tackle was the huge huge huge bunch of parsley! My friend Amy suggested I try out making tabbouleh, which was perfect because I now had everything in the house I needed to make it. Plus, I had never made it before. I'll share the recipe, and a bunch of others, on here shortly.
Have you got any suggestions on what I should make? I'd love to hear if any of the these amazing vegetables are your favorites? Have you ever had a vegetable box delivered? I am definitely going to start after how much I loved this one.
My vegetable box comes c/o Whiteleys Farm via Millies of Leeds. If you're from the area you need to get down to both.
