I've signed up for an organic vegbox again. Years ago when I was living in the south of England I had one from Riverford which I really liked but Riverford doesn't deliver to Scotland and there's generally a dearth of schemes up here. I have, however, signed up with Locavore, a local scheme that aims to provide mainly Scottish produce. To be honest I find most vegetables a bit of a pill although I love most fruit and can't get enough.
This morning I received my first box. I'll have no trouble with the fruit bag, which contains apples, oranges, pears and grapes (none, I suspect, from Scotland), nor with the sourdough loaf, which I think we all know will struggle to see the day out, never mind the week. The small veg box for one contains potatoes and onions, which are no problem at all, and carrots which I will probably eat raw because it's a sin to boil good carrots, Then there's a cabbage of the loosely-packed variety, and beetroot.
I'm not as averse to cabbage as I once was, provided that it receives minimal cooking and isn't boiled to a mush in the traditional English way. Beetroot I can handle, especially in soup, so there's nothing in there that I can't eat. But cabbage and beetroot don't exactly excite me.
Do any of you know any recipes using any of the above that will excite my tastebuds and make it feel less like a duty? A good range of herbs and spices in my store cupboard may be assumed.
