Recipes from your veg box: beetroot and goat's cheese bake
In our new series with Better Food Traders, we'll be meeting the people behind the veg supplies in London, and they'll be sharing how best to serve some of their seasonal veg. First off, how to use that beetroot in your veg box this month.
Crop Drop is a not-for-profit local veg scheme based at the Wolves Lane Centre, a community food growing hub in Wood Green, North London. They grow some of their own produce onsite and source the rest from organic farms via the Better Food Shed.
When you sign up to a veg box you receive beetroot in plenty, along with lots of other new produce you may never have used before. Below is a simple, delicious recipe that uses up beetroot. It’s a great recipe to nail before moving onto more exotic ways of utilising this wonderful vegetable.
