My veggie box arrived yesterday morning – sans the eggs and apple juice – bless the delivery woman she raised her eyebrows in a very knowing way and said she would return later with the missing items.
Yes I was right in predicting there would be strange things a lurking in the box…………
It’s Kohlrabi. I’ve been on the netty and now know the Germans eat a lot of it – and looking at the Teutonic race, it hasn’t done them any harm. I plan to prepare a gratin type dish so my husband will be distracted by the creamy, cheesy presentation to worry too much about the actual vegetable.
I have a huge bag of weird salad leaves which will be harder to disguise as Nigel doesn’t like a dressed salad – but I’m probably going to again serve them with a dazzling calorie rich something and hope he won’t notice.
The beetroot will be eaten by moi and my neighbour Sam who has confessed a passion for the red beauty – even proffered a recipe suggestion – steady now, that’s my department:)
