A Better Choice For Freshness

Are you a fan of the springtime produce that’s becoming available at your local fruit and veg shop? Delight in the abundance of fresh, Aussie-grown produce this week and get inspired with some of these wonderful fruits and vegetables. 

Our pick of the week is Dutch carrots. Smaller than regular carrots, Dutch carrots are a delightful spring offering and make for an impressive side dish or salad topper. The flavour is slightly sweet, and when gently cooked they can add so much flavour to your meals. The best way to enjoy these is just as they are, roasted and added to salads or served alongside meat. 

Spring is the perfect time to add more nourishing vegetables to your diet, including a wide variety of greens. Broad beans, green beans and snow peas are all excellent options to add to your meals this week. Each with a unique texture and flavour, these can be added to salads, pastas, baked dishes or soups. 

Spinach is great quality this week, and is a household favourite. Spinach can be enjoyed simply in a salad or gently steamed and topped with lemon, but its superpower lies in being baked up into any number of treats, from muffins to breakfast pockets! Pick up some spinach at your local fruit and veg shop this week. 

Asparagus is a unique vegetable with a delicate flavour that is a wonderful option for this week’s menu! Add it to an easy weeknight meal like this Chicken & Asparagus Bowl

Zucchini is in excellent supply this week, so what better time to whip up these Cauliflower, Zucchini & Halloumi Fritters for a weekend brekkie or an easy weeknight dinner. 

It’s well and truly the time for berries, with a bounty of strawberries and blueberries on offer at your local fruit and veg shop in excellent quality. Super fresh and juicy, berries can really enhance your morning breakfast when added to smoothies or topped on your favourite cereal. Grab a punnet this week and enjoy!

Hass avocados are the perfect addition to your weekday lunches, perfect for school lunchboxes or to pack to take to work! Either smash up a delicious home-made guacamole, or add to salads or sandwiches for an irresistible creamy flavour. 

Citrus continues to deliver, with a wonderful array of Oranges, Lemons, Limes and Tangelos available at your local fruit and veg shop. Make a refreshing juice with your favourite citrus this week, or whip up a delicious salad dressing with a hint of lemon or lime to really enhance the flavours! 

Watch the many in-store changes at your local fruit and veg shop as the seasons change. Eating seasonally is not only better for your wallet, but is also better for the environment. Head in-store and visit your local fruit and veg shop this week for better quality, freshness and service.
