Produce & Meal Boxes

The Organic Real Meal Box

 

 

“New Zealand’s first seasonal organic meal box – that is 100% plant based, gluten free and plastic free”.

 

 

We are continually committed to transforming the way we live through nutritious, ethically, and sustainably sourced organic food.

 

We believe this way of living should be available for everyone to enjoy and afford, which is why we’re launching New Zealand’s first organic, gluten free, seasonal, whole food, plant-based meal box.

 

 Living sustainably and symbiotically with nature also means that all our meal boxes will be 100% plastic free and packed using home compostable and biodegradable packaging.

 

We are launching with our standard meal boxes. These are available in two sizes – small and large.

 

The small meal box provides 4 servings, enough for 2 people for 2 nights, or a dinner party for 4 for one night. The large meal box provides 8 portions, suitable for a family of 4 over two nights.

This Weeks Meal Box

Cauliflower, Capsicum and Fennel Fritters
with Buckwheat & Apple Slaw

 

These delightful and flavoursome fritters bring out the best of this seasons cauliflower, capsicum and bulb fennel. Using the magic of chickpea flour, you will be amazed that this recipe is 100% plant based.

Served with delightfully light buckwheat an apple slaw with our housemade balsamic dressing , and a zesty garlic yoghurt dipping sauce.


Option to spruce this meal up with some greens from your garden/local organic shop or farmers market. Also delicious with a drizzle of fresh lemon juice and fresh cracked pepper, or a little homemade chutney on the side! 

Tip: Soak buckwheat for a few hours/overnight to reduce cooking time and make the grains more nourishing and easily digestible. Rinse thoroughly after soaking to remove “glutinous”/goopy coating that forms around the grains. 

Ingredients in this meal box Cauliflower, Capsicum, Fennel, Fennel Seeds, Garlic, Chickpea Flour, Buckwheat Groats*, Turmeric, Apple, Cabbage, Parsley, Lettuce, Ginger, Veggie Bouillon, Taste Nature Balsamic Dressing, Garlic Yoghurt Sauce (Coconut Yoghurt, Garlic, Lemon Juice, Salt)

*Buckwheat is a source of Potassium, Fibre, Protein, Iron, and Vitamin B6. It is also a good source of magnesium, zinc and copper, which are great boosts for the immune system!

 

Next Weeks Meal Box 

Rosemary + Thyme Polenta with Mushrooms & Spinach

 

This simple yet delicious meal brings together richly flavoured creamy polenta with toasted New Zealand hazelnuts & perfectly sautéed mushrooms and spinach.

 

Polenta is a traditional North Italian porridge made of coarsely ground cornmeal, in this recipe it is infused with coconut cream, savoury yeast and fresh Ōtepoti grown rosemary and thyme to give it a delicious fragrant & buttery flavour.

 

This meal comes together in around 30-40 minutes, but doesn’t compromise on taste. If you have a high-quality olive oil on hand this is a great opportunity to put it to use. A drizzle right at the very end of plating this meal would be a wonderful addition, or simply enjoy as is.

Recipe Tips: Option to cook mushrooms and spinach separate from one another for more beautiful presentation when you plate this dish.

Ingredients in this meal box Fine Polenta, Coconut Milk, Fresh Garlic, Rosemary, Thyme, Vegetable Bouillon, Nutritional Yeast Flakes, Mushrooms, Spinach, Onion, New Zealand Grown Hazelnuts
