Sizing is steadily improving on stone fruits, better still the flavour is starting to really shine through. Prices on many lines are still high, we are still somewhat between seasons, and the early heat is certainly not helping.

THIS WEEKS RECIPE
Potato & Spinach Balls (vegan)
We have an abundance of lovely freshy English Spinach this week, and Potatoes are so fresh and a great price! These can be fried, but they taste better when baked. They are nutritious and tasty! They are firm and crispy outside, but creamy inside.
You can use sweet potato instead and any leafy green really. But when using sweet potato, you have to add one tablespoon of oil and 2 tbsp of flour or the consistency will be mushy when baked.
3 big Potatoes (any kind you like)
2 or 3 cups of Spinach fresh or frozen (or any other leafy green)
3 cloves of Garlic
1 tbsp Basil
2 tbsp Chives
2 tbsp Parsley
1/2 tsp Cumin
2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast (optional)
3 tbsp White Wine (optional)
Chop the potatoes in big chunks and boil until done but very firm (about 6 minutes). Add some sea salt to the water if you want.
Chop the Spinach, it doesn't have to be perfect. Cook it in a pan with the chopped garlic and the wine (or substitute for water) for 3 or 4 minutes until it's soft.
Chop the herbs
Mix everything in a bowl, (including the nutritional yeast if you have it on hand, if not don't worry) and let it rest until it's cool enough for you to touch it without burning your hands.
Then proceed to make small balls (like meatballs). You’ll get close to 20 from this recipe
Bake for 15 minutes at 200 degrees. Make sure you put some baking paper or oil in your baking dish so they don't stick.
Have a great week
