Officially 7 days make 1 week. As you can see there are only 6 days of recipes because on the 7th day it’s time to get a new box!
Ratatouille on the side
Today I’m left with little bits and pieces of vegetables. The first thing that came to my mind: ratatouille. ‘Ratatouille? What is that?’, my dearest Italian husband said. It’s French, of course I forgot 😉 It’s a typical spring vegetable dish which they like to serve in the Provence.
Pasta with String Beans & Tomatoes
So here I am proud of my big box filled up with fresh veggies. Where to start?! Pasta is what we enjoy eating the most. So, it’s not a surprise that the first recipe will include a bit of wheat! This dish is easy and quick to prepare.
Why Should I Eat Locally Grown Foods? The Power of the Local Community
DHiT – The Hague in Transition facilitates the coming together of the local community to make positive changes in their way of living, housing and working. From the greening of the neighborhood and the exchange of services to the more conscious use of energy, waste and consumption.
We work with residents, neighborhood gardens, schools, small businesses, the City Council, (inter) national organizations and other interest groups to promote local resilience and to make life less oil-dependent, more sustainable and more social.
Smoky taste, meaty texture. Delicious spring vegetables and shiitake mushrooms. These mushrooms have been used medicinally for over 6,000 years in Asia. They are a great food source for iron, full of vitamin B and D. It’s important not to overcook them, otherwise you loose all this great stuff!

Italian meets Dutch. Try this fantastic potato stew full of southern taste! A southern taste of aubergine topped of with some juicy mozzarella cheese and thyme flavoured sausages. This doesn’t look like a regular Italian dish. It’s more of a mix between the Dutch potatoes hodgepodge and popular vegetables and herbs used in the Italian cuisine.
Potato remains were found all the way back to 500 BC. They were worshiped then and worshiped now. A life without potatoes is unthinkable to me.
