I’ve signed up with a vegetable box scheme 3 months ago and it’s been a very enlightening experience. Every week you get a box of local, organic, seasonal vegetables and I find it fun trying to figure out what to make using that week’s veggies. It has also made me more aware of what vegetables are in season and thus cheaper if you were to buy in a supermarket.
I highly recommend signing up to support your local farmers. If you work near the University of Manchester, Vegbox People deliver on site every Tuesday from 12 noon – 5:30pm, thus eliminating the worry of not having someone at home to accept the delivery of a box. If not, you can look for your nearest veg box provider by searching Soil Association.
Leek and kale are both vegetables in abundance in Winter so I’ve been making this soup a lot. You can use any type of kale in this recipe.
