Riverford Organic Veg
Reviewed by Julie Gorst
When I was told I was getting vegetables to review I thought what can I say about veg, but wow what a great veg box.
I received a medium size box of organic vegetables which was meant for 3-4 people from Riverford’s and it contained lots of veg from carrots, green beans, tomatoes, lettuce, new potatoes, aubergine, shallots, cabbage, swede, peppers and I also got organic duck eggs.
The first thing I noticed was the size of the veg, they were huge, well bigger than I’ve ever seen in supermarkets. I thought wow what can I do with all this veg so I decided I would make a vegetable lasagne. I couldn’t get over the size of the giant peppers it was like a meal in one. I saved the rest of the veg to roast with my Sunday dinner, FABULOUS they were so tasty and fresh.
I had never had duck eggs before so I took the bull by the horns and tried them, they were a little bit stronger then hens eggs, they weren't for me but they were fresh and a good size and it was nice to know that all the veg and the eggs were organic and that they were grown locally.
