Leftovers Veggie Burgers


I'm still totally in love with my recipe for beetroot veggie burgers, however sometimes you have to break the mould when there's a new tasty range of leftovers waiting for you... With a veg box arriving the next day and lots of bits to use up I created the MOST delicious veggie burgers which I want to share with you!!

Have a look on the 'Inventions' page for the recipe!

And happy nomzzzz....

The Veg Box - Highlight of the week!

We've wanted to get a weekly veg box for a while... living in an area of Bristol where good produce isn't on the doorstep this was a very exciting prospect. After seeing Plowright Organic at the local Sunday market it was an easy decision... we love the idea of being inspired to cook from the ingredients and this week has been far too delicious!! On that note I want to share what I've cooked this week, proving that point :)



Whats in the box...

Onions / Carrots / Potatoes / Runner Beans / Kale / Aubergine / Basil / Fennel / Cucumber 

What's for dinner...

- Fish, caramelised fennel, kale, mash

- Roasted aubergine, tomato, cucumber + mint salad, tzatziki

- Vine tomato and basil soup

- Roast dinner :) We had to add on and buy a cauliflower for epic cauli cheese - *recipe in favourites*

- Runner bean + lemon zest hummus 

I'm becoming so much more aware of the quality of produce I put into my body and the relationship between healthy gut, healthy mind. The veg box is a huge contribution to this, super grateful :))

I cannot wait to sink my teeth into the most colourful pizza!! Adding raw beetroot juice to dough is a delicious way to brighten up pizza night and a fab initiative to experiment with some new toppings!

Introducing the beans...

The last two weeks has bought a new revelation to the fridge. Refried beans. A discovery of how quick and easy they are to make (and financially accessible when your watching the pennies...) but most of all a delicious accompaniment to many meals. Check out the poached egg page for my recipe. It's a simple one and fun to play with different flavours. In Mexico, epazote is widely used (similar to oregano) and avocado or lime leaves, I decided to infuse with a bay leaf and chipotle flakes.

Beet Queen's First Supper Club!

Success!! My first supper club was a winner!! A few limitations, but we smashed it, and everyone loved the food which is most important :) In the new studio space 238, Stapleton Road, Beet Queen served a Mexican feast in celebration of Day of the Dead and Aaron's 50th Birthday. With no furniture but a table to prep we hosted with a ring of comfy floor cushions and sharing food. See the 'Supper Club' page for the menu! Recipes available on request :D

I think I can concur with the crowd that the salt baked smoked pineapple was the winning dish!
