9 Delicious Recipes to Make for an Organic Christmas
Would any of us have thought that the holidays would just roll around like that again?
This year has absolutely been one for the books, and we’re so proud of all that the FreshBox Community has been able to achieve, especially including your commitment to delicious, healthy, local foods. But you don’t have to say goodbye to good habits just because the holidays are here (although it doesn’t hurt to indulge a little too). But the best part is you’re still able to source delicious locally grown organic produce and whip it into a feast for the holidays.
Here’s a few recipes that will be featuring on our table this year. Can I tempt you with any?
After presents have been torn open and Santa stockings un-stuffed, we always love to spend a little together time as a family before the day gets away on us. And nothing brings the family together quite like Christmas brunch. This french toast has a delightful festive twist that you’ll want to make year-round.
These aren’t your grandma’s boiled Brussels - they’re crispy, garlicky and zesty, and a bowl of this salad is the perfect addition to any Christmas table. It doesn’t matter if you’re the host or the guest of a friend of a friend, this fresh take on the holidays will be welcomed by all.
Christmas day barbeques are a staple part of Australian culture - they’re a huge part of who we are and what our summer holidays look like. These simple skewers are kid-friendly and veggie-packed, and they’re an easy throw-together addition when you’re running out of time but still want to impress your guests.
Glazed ham anyone? It’s always made sweeter with a pat of apple butter. This homemade apple butter is so simple, you can literally turn it on and leave it to do its thing. It’ll make you regret ever buying the store bought stuff!
With a feast of food in front of you, it’s always nice to have some fresh, veggie-rich sides on offer. This asparagus is incredibly simple, and the addition of lemon and fresh mint elevates the whole dish to the most talked about taste on the table.
Rain, hail or shine, who doesn’t love chips? They’re easy to make and easy to please - especially for the kids sitting around the table. These chips can help a small meal go a long way, and all they need is a little basic prep (which you can even do the night before).
A salad that comes together in a flash, but isn’t simple and tasteless? This is exactly what you’re looking for. Using some of the best, fresh local ingredients, this low maintenance salad is the perfect combination of festive and fragrant.
Even though spring has well-and-truly passed, baby carrots are still coming in plenty. This simple, seasonal glaze for our favourite vegetable goes down a treat on the holiday table year after year. And guess what? We’re not gatekeeping - so you can enjoy them too.
You didn’t think I would forget dessert did you? Even on a hot, Australian day, you still can’t beat a baked crumble for Christmas dessert. This crisp is a lighter take on the heavenly dessert, and you can use any seasonal fruit that’s available. If it’s an extra-hot day, then you might just have to top it with some more ice-cream…
Okay, so there’s some pretty amazing Christmas recipes in there - but what if you’re bringing the booze? Don’t worry, we’ve got plenty of delicious organic Australian wines that can be delivered right to your doorstep (you can even order a hamper too for those last minute presents you forgot - shhh, we won’t tell)!
