In the spirit of Zero Waste Week, we decided to challenge ourselves to create a delicious, family meal using every ingredient in an organic grocery box. Many people sign up to organic box schemes because it is an easy, convenient way to enjoy seasonal, organic produce but also because it reduces food packaging. We discovered that many people are put off the concept because they feel like they might not use all of the ingredients – resulting in greater food waste. By creating a meal that used every ingredient in a box, we’d be able to show that with a little imagination you can make good use of everything that you are sent. Eversfield Organic joined us in our challenge and sent us through a box of produce. We knew we were getting a meat item, a fish item, a variety of vegetables and some store cupboard essentials, but had no idea what to expect until we opened the box.
The recipe features in the September ’18 issue of Natural Mumma Magazine.
