Organic Christmas Veggies
Fill your Christmas dinner full of goodness with our extensive range of fresh organic vegetables, delivered straight to your door!
Christmas day is well on the way, and in the run up we’ve got one thing on our minds – Christmas dinner. Whilst turkey is of course the star of the festive spread, getting your greens in is just as important, after all, what’s Christmas without a Brussel sprout?
Why Buy Organic Veg This Christmas?
Unlike most veg you can find in the supermarket, our organic veg is free from the use of artificial pesticides and herbicides, which are toxic to the environment and can prove to be dangerous when consumed. Eating organic fruit and veg is also a sure-fire way to avoid GM, which is banned under organic standards. Not only is organic veg better for you and your family, it’s also better for the environment, growing with the seasons and working with nature, thus using less energy intensive methods to produce a yield.
Keep reading to hear about all the organic veg we have available for Christmas delivery and some fantastic recipe ideas to make your festive feast this year the best one yet!
Brussel SproutsAs mentioned above, Christmas really wouldn’t be Christmas without the inclusion of a Brussel sprout or two (no matter how divisive they are). Our organic Brussels are crisp and earthy, harvested by hand and grown slowly to produce the best flavour.

Love them or hate them, eating a sprout is traditional, so we’ve come up with a recipe to spruce up your sprouts which may tempt even the most ardent sprout-hater. Our sautéed sprouts with streaky bacon recipe adds a level of indulgence to the winter vegetable, with the smokiness of the bacon perfectly complimenting the sprout's sharpness.
One of the best parts of any roast are the roast potatoes. Whatever your method for the perfect roasty, our organic potatoes will make them better.
If you’re in need of some spud-spiration this year, our garlic and rosemary roast potato recipe makes for roasties that are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, cooked in rich goose fat and with an extra oomph of flavour from the garlic and rosemary.
Organic carrots and parsnips are an essential at the Christmas table, sweet, creamy and perfect for roasting. Our recipe for maple and thyme roast parsnips enhances this sweetness even further, sticky and delicious, to go down a treat with all your Christmas dinner guests.

Cauliflower and Cabbage
Whilst not the most traditional Christmas veggie cauliflower can make a tasty edition to your plate this year. Delicately flavoured with a slight crunch, cauliflower is extremely versatile, making it one of our favourite veggies to cook with.
For a deliciously rich and creamy cauliflower cheese, our mustardy cauliflower cheese recipe is one of the best out there; adding a touch of mustardy tang to cut through the creaminess with a slight kick of spice, this one is sure to warm up your tastebuds.
Red cabbage is a Christmas classic, adding a flash of colour to your plate, this gorgeous vegetable is amazing when combined with apple, onion and balsamic vinegar in our braised red cabbage recipe. We recommend adding crispy streaky bacon for a smoky twist…
