Get excited to cook this week with an excellent variety of fresh produce lining the shelves of your local Fruit and Veg shop! We encourage you to try something new this week, whether it’s a new fruit or vegetable, or a delicious new recipe!
It’s that beautiful time when Queensland Strawberries are back with a bang! Deliciously sweet and perfect as a snack, Strawberries are a great pick this week at your local Fruit and Veg shop. If you find a good deal on your berries, a great trick is to buy them in bulk and freeze them for later use in smoothies or baking! Strawberries are a great snack alone, but they also pair well with rich flavours in desserts, such as a decadent chocolate dessert like this Chocolate Ganache Tart with Strawberries!
Full of healthy fats and vitamins, Avocado is one to pick up in your weekly shop! Nothing beats a simple Avocado on toast for a quick and easy breakfast to get you started for the day! Want to ripen up your Avocado quicker? Place it in a paper bag and leave on the countertop. This will produce ethylene gas that will help the fruit to ripen faster so you can eat your Avocado sooner!
Citrus season is still upon us, and with plenty to choose from, there’s no reason not to pick some up this week! Choose from a selection of Tangelo, Mandarins, Blood Oranges and Navel Oranges for a citrus to suit every occasion!
Pears are a delicious option for a refreshing snack. Perfectly crisp and sweet in flavour, Pears are wonderful alone or as a topping on your favourite breakfast! Make the most of Pears this weekend and make this delightful Rhubarb and Pear Crumble.
Zucchini is rich in antioxidants and high in Vitamin A to help support a healthy immune system. Get some of this delicious veg into your system in this Ricotta and Zucchini Ravioli, a dish the whole family will love!
Grab some Fennel from your local Fruit and Veg shop this week! Fennel has a unique flavour that adds so much to your meals. Don’t underestimate what you can do with Fennel, as all parts of the plant can be consumed! The fronds and stems can be tossed through a salad to add flavour and crunch, and the bulb can be sliced thinly and eaten raw or roasted to really bring out the delicate flavours!
Sweet Potato is in good supply this week, and is great to consider if you’re after a low-carb alternative to potatoes. If you’re after a quick and easy meal this week, try out this Sweet Potato Mexi Bowl!
A good supply of Broccoli is available this week. Broccoli is high in calcium, iron and potassium to aid in a healthy immune system and support a healthy diet. Pick some up this week from your local Fruit and Veg shop.
Your local Fruit and Veg shop hand selects their produce from local Growers and Wholesalers to bring you the best quality available! Pick up some of this produce and more from your local Fruit and Veg shop this week!
