This week’s basket (01.09.16)
It is a very nice basket this week again that we prepared! Each basket weighs about 5,50 Kg. We had great products, in very good condition, therefore we had a lot of leftovers. It all went to the local Voedselbank. We unfortunately didn’t have time to give some fruits to the local school.
So, What’s in it?
- a pack of beetroots
- some grapes
- 2 cucumbers
- 2-3 grapefruits
- 4-5 apples
- 1-2 limes
- 2-3 turnips
- 6-8 tomatoes
- 1-2 avocados
- 1 pepperbell
- 1 chicory
- 3 bananas
- a handful of hot peppers
We hope you will enjoy them! Let us know what are you going to cook with them in the comments below!
Thank you Aurelie and Pierrette for sending me your recipes with the products of the baskets.
Aurelie made marinated peppers and Pierrette a guacamole and a smoothie. Let’s see how they made it.
- Preheat the oven to 200 °C. Place the whole red / yellow peppers in the oven directly on the rack. Roast for about 15 minutes, turning if needed, until the skin is well scorched. Immediately place in a bowl covered with plastic wrap or in a paper bag, and allow cooling.
- Remove the skins from the peppers by rubbing with your hands, and rinse under cold water. Cut in half, remove stem and seeds, then cut into strips.
- Place peppers into a serving bowl, and stir in the garlic, red chili, oil, cumin, salt and pepper.
Let peppers absorb flavors for 12 hours in refrigerator.
Serve as part of an antipasto plate or with goat cheese and sliced baguette.
