garlic – we don't need to tell you who to use up this little gem.

(keep in a dark/dry place)

zucchini - chances are you already know exactly what you want to do with these little babies, but there are many recipes below.

We've been wanting to try this amazing looking zucchini pasta, this crustless zucchini and feta pie, this zucchini carpaccio and this Mediterranean zucchini,

(store in the fridge in a plastic bag)

lettuce mix – you know the drill. Salads, salads, salads!

(store in the fridge)

carrots – Have you tried carrot pesto yet!? recipe below

(Remove the carrot tops (they leach moisture from the roots) before storing them both in plastic bags in the fridge)

swiss chard – a favourite of ours! The tender stems are edible too, but take longer to cook than the leaves, so make sure to chop them up and saute for a few minutes before adding the leaves. We like to saute ours for a few minutes, add a splash of jerk sauce, saute another minute, turn off heat, add feta crumble and serve. Mix in your kale and beet tops to your chard for this recipe.

(store in a bag in the fridge)

kale – remove the ribs, give it a good massage and make yourself a salad! or some pesto! or some chips! Or a kale reuben sandwich, see below

(store in the fridge in a bag)

beets – when your veggies are delivered, why not tear off the tops and toss the roots in a pot with water, cover and boil for 20-25 minutes or until tender. Let cool and then have cooked beets read for salads or snacks all week. Don't forget that you can eat your beet greens. Juice them, saute them, make them into fried greens meatless balls.

(store in the fridge in a bag)


basil – such a beautiful and tender herb, try it in the zucchini pasta recipe below or maybe in a basil lemonade.

(submerge the stems in water, in a glass, and leave on the counter)


cucumber – peel the skin or don't, it's up to you. We usually eat our as a snack with some salt.

(store in the fridge in vegi drawer)
