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) 

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!

Super Fresh Courgette Salad

Sweet Potato & Pepper Soup

This is a delicious, simple soup packed with flavour - you can of course make it your own by adding chilli, ginger or a spice blend of your choice like a cajun or curry spice mix when you add the pepper to the pot to give the soup an interesting kick!

Pour hot into a flask for a filling on-the-go lunch or serve in warm bowls with crusty bread!
