If you’ve been to the shop recently you will see we have had a bit of a face lift – we’ve gone green and we’re very pleased with the result – (apart from the small typo on the website address above the window which should read www.beanieswholefoods.co.uk).
Eat Sheffield Awards 2015
We are also very happy to have made it through to the finals of the Eat Sheffield Awards run by Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield Business School. So a big “Thank you” to all our lovely customers who went online and voted for us. Doing well in competitions isn’t really important in the grand scheme of things but it does give us a bit of a boost! And whether or not we win it is important to us that you as customers receive award-winning attention from us so if you have any issues with your boxes please let us know and we’ll do our award-winning best to put things right!
Eat Sheffield is an initiative that sets out to promote every aspect of food production and consumption in Sheffield. Check out their website Eat Sheffield to find foodie places and events.
It’s that time of year again and we’re delighted to welcome – and welcome back – our lovely student customers. If you are away from home for the first time and having to fend for yourself don’t hesitate to come and ask for help. “How do you bake a potato?” is not a silly question if you have never done it before. We’re here to supply your every need and we love chatting about food so come and chat with us! Some parents even like to buy a regular veg box for their little darlings while they’re away from home – you could persuade yours to sign you up and you can receive a box of health-giving organic fruit and/or vegetables every week
Talking of veg boxes here’s next week’s recipe. All the usual supply provisos apply...
B’s will get 500g Tomatoes instead of potatoes
D’s will get a Salad Pack or Lettuce (depending on availability and quality) from Sheffield Organic Growers (SOG)
E’s will get 500g Tomatoes, the Salad/Lettuce and a bunch of turnips from SOG
L’s and M’s will also get Tomatoes, Salad/Lettuce, Turnips and a bag of Spinach from SOG
Q’s will also get 500g Kiwis.
With Kale in the boxes this week I’m tempted to post a Kale recipe to go with it (of course this may be tempting fate – watch the kale supplies dry up over the weekend) – so this is from the Beanies archive. If you’re tempted to try it give us a ring and we can add a pack of tempeh rashers to your order (subject, of course, to availability!)
Kale and Potato Cakes.
This will make about 6 to 8 depending on the size as you shape them.
If you don't have tempeh you could try substituting some nuts for that extra texture - try toasting cashews, hazels or walnuts perhaps and chopping them up.
