Boxxfresh Lasagne

 

This is a family staple that we have tweaked into a completely plant based version. 

The finely chopped veggies mixed with lentils and tomatoes cooks down into an amazingly delicious sauce that would give any regular lasagne a run for its money!!! 

Serves 6

RAGU SAUCE :

2-3 red onions 

5 garlic cloves 

A good splash of tamari -  approx 2 tbsp

Woody herbs fresh or dried ( 1 1/2 tsp thyme, oregano if dried) 

Husk Baked Sweetcorn

No prepping, no faffing, it’s as simple as wash… bake… eat!

 

This is a brilliant, foolproof method of cooking corn in the oven if you haven’t had the chance to light the BBQ or the summer weather is a little on the wet side or you just fancy a simple tasty lunch. Of course, it is just as amazing on the BBQ, you just have to remember to rotate the corn 3 or 4 times throughout cooking.

We’ve suggested a few optional seasonings which go brilliantly with sweetcorn but it’s totally up to you!

Cherry Picked!

We’re so, so excited to have cherries back in stock! Over the next few weeks and hopefully months, we’ll be offering our supercharged delicious cherries sourced from the Blackmoor Estate, Hampshire, who started growing cherries amongst their orchards where they have also been growing apples and pear for generations! These juicy Rubys are sweet, tasty packed full of antioxidants and just 14 of them count as 1 of your 10 a day!

 

Here’s how we love to eat them!
