The £3 Morrisons wonky veg boxes have been all over the press lately so I thought it was about time I ordered one to see what it contains and more importantly is it any good?
So here’s my £3 Morrisons wonky veg box – it arrived with my weekly online shopping (I’ve just switched to Morrisons to try them out – so far I’m impressed, it has all the convenience of Ocado but with the cost savings of Morrisons).
The box contents are listed on the outside label – so my wonky veg box this week contained:
- 3 wonky parsnips
- 1 wonky cabbage
- 2 wonky leeks
- 8 wonky potatoes
- 4 wonky carrots
- 4 wonky onions (the box actually had 8 small onions)
- 1 wonky swede
I’m one happy customer! Just £3 for a generous box of seasonal vegetables seems like a bargain to me – the quality of all the produce was good, there was nothing rotten or unusable, it’s a great box of vegetables that’s easy to use up in everyday meals. One thing I did note though… the veg wasn’t really very wonky at all! I added to my wonky vegetable order with a bag of 2.5kg of wonky potatoes for £1 and a 1kg bag of wonky onions for 42p, as we seem to get through loads of those in a week.
If you need a little wonky veg box cooking inspiration – here’s what I used mine for
- potatoes for roast potatoes with the Sunday dinner & leftovers for Monday.
- swede as boiled and mashed with butter and nutmeg with Sunday dinner & leftovers for Monday.
- 1/2 cabbage sautéed with butter and garlic with Sunday dinner & leftovers for Monday.
- 3 carrots and 2 onions in with the one-pot brisket for Sunday dinner & leftovers for Monday.
- leeks went into a chicken and chorizo pie.
- parsnips roasted with honey and served alongside sausage casserole.
- 1 carrot, 2 onion and 1/2 cabbage into homemade coleslaw.
Disclosure – this is not a sponsored post I just really like a £3 bargain wonky veg box and had to tell you all about it!
