Product Review and Giveaway: Riverford Organic Vegetable Box

I was recently lucky enough to receive a Riverford Organic Vegetable Box. I have been considering getting a vegetable box delivered for a while so the opportunity to try one out was one I was not pass up. The box was delivered on the specified day for my area. I was immediately amazed by the variety of vegetables that was in it. These were:

  • Potatoes
  • Leeks
  • Cauliflower
  • Purple Sprouting Broccoli (PSB)
  • Asparagus
  • Lettuce
  • Vine Tomatoes

Also in the box were storage instructions for the vegetables and a recipe card telling you different ways to cook them. The small organic vegetable box is designed for two-three people and costs £12.85. I appreciated how much PSB there was as it is something I do not get to eat very often and the bunch of asparagus was quite generous too. The only downside of the box in my opinion was the small number of potatoes. We used them all in one meal so I don’t how they are supposed to last a week.  With the vegetables in the box I cooked asparagus with poached eggs and butter and a cheesy leek and PSB bake. I also cooked my River Cottage Rocks! #3: Veggie Heaven dish which I tell you about in another post asap.

  1. My favourite vegetables are leeks which are so versatile. I love them added to macaroni cheese or baked with cheese, similar to what you have done with your too!

  2. My favorite vegetable has to be potatoes. So many ways to cook it and each one is favorite in our house: mashed,boiled,potatoe chips or wedges,Russian potatoe pancakes or dumplings with potatoe filling and one of THE favorites is pancakes stuffed with potatoes,mushrooms and onions.:)

    I adore large field mushrooms. Stuff them with a mix of breadcrumbs, nuts & tomatoes & top with a basil leaf & some mozzarella. Oven bake for 15 mins. Can’t beat it!

  4. Mine would have to be cauliflower. One of my favourite dishes is cauliflower cheese and the kids love it aswell

  5. I love mushrooms, but I know a lot of people don’t. They really bring out the flavour of the food they’re cooked with and steak and kidney pie with mushrooms has to be high on my list of favourites.

  6. Mine would be the sweet potato, baked into a gratin with peanut butter, lime juice and double cream (one of Hugh’s best recipes)!

  7. I love avocado, mashed up with lime and eaten with oatcakes for a snack.

  8. I love most vegetables, but my favourite us probably asparagus… lightly steamed then served with butter

  9. My favourite has to be aubergine, I just love the flavour. I love it cooked the Italian way, aubergine parmagiano.

  10. I keep putting off commenting because I can’t decide what my favourite vegetable is! It changes according to the time of year and what’s in the garden. And even according to my mood. Although my favourite of all is probab ly Brussels Sprouts, plainly bolied and eaten with loads of black pepper. But never, ever, out of season!
