Produce Update

Luscious Aussie Asparagus from Koo Wee Rup in Victoria and Mildura is tender, has great flavour and is very affordable right now at $1.35 a bunch this week as part of our weekly specials. Blanched asparagus makes a no-fuss accompaniment to steak, fish or chicken, for a fuller smokier flavour you can char-grill asparagus.

After being in variable supply for a few months, mushrooms are back in good supply. Mushrooms add a hearty, earthy taste to meals. Stuff them with ricotta, add them in pasta dishes or try an Indian-inspired mushroom masala! Mushrooms are a great meat substitute for vegetarians and vegans, as they are quite high in protein.

We've been impressed with the quality and value of cauliflower this week, just $2.00 each this week! Think beyond casseroles and use it roasted in salads, or finely processed and sautéed in olive oil for cauliflower rice, a great low carb alternative to rice!

This week’s top pick is super delicious blueberries from New South Wales. Did you know the cloudy coating on blueberry skin is a natural part of the fruit? It’s called the “bloom” and acts as a barrier to insects and bacteria. It’s also a sign of freshness, so the more bloom, the fresher the berry! Full of antioxidants and low in calories, blueberries can be eaten fresh or added to drinks, desserts, sauces, or salads. Look for blueberries that are plump, firm, and unblemished and store them in the fridge; wash them just before use.
