Meal plans with Love Local deliveries in November

At Love Local we are passionate about encouraging people to eat more fresh, local produce.  We have a number of customers in Invercargill, Bluff, Edendale and Wyndham already enjoying our fruit and vegetable delivery service.

We want to help make it easier to get the best out of your Love Local bag, so through the month of November we are providing meal plans and recipes to utilise the contents of our weekly deliveries.

Each week we will email recipients of our Small, Regular and Large bags a selection of five main meals and accompanying recipes that use Love Local vegetables as a main component of the dish.  They can be put together using the contents of most pantries/fridges.

Because we know that different households have different tastes and budgets, the recipes will be written in a way that are easy to use, but flexible.  For example, we will make suggestions of a protein to go with a meal, but it is up to you if sausages or steak is more in line with your taste or budget.  Many of the meals will also be easily adapted as a vegetarian dish.
