Pea Shoots

Packed with vitamins A, C and folic acid, Pea Shoots are a delicious, nutritious modern slant on the classic British garden pea.   Pea Shoots are a nutritious leaf with high levels of vitamin C and vitamin A. A 50g bag of these tasty greens offers more than half of the RDA for vitamin C, a quarter of the RDA for vitamin A and significant amounts of folic acid. It is great news that this healthy and simple to prepare British vegetable leaf is now readily available to consumers.  They used to be available from April onwards but as now so popular they are grown all year round in the UK!

Pea Shoots are low in fat and with just 9 calories per 50g bag and 14 calories per 80g vegetable portion (equivalent to a small bowlful), they are a delicious addition to any diet.  Quick to prepare they provide a tasty and convenient way to help people achieve their ‘5 a day’ – especially as they are ideal partners for other vegetables whether served hot or as part of a mixed salad. Daily salad eaters have also been found to have better intakes and blood levels of vitamin C, folic acid and carotenoids such as beta-carotene (which the body can convert to vitamin A).

As part of a healthy diet and lifestyle, the nutrients found in pea shoots can help to maintain health and well being and taste absolutely delicious!




Spring Greens

Steamed or blanched, spring greens will turn silky-soft in texture and taste fresher and sweeter than winter varieties of cabbage. Because of this, they make for a perfect accompaniment to lighter spring meals. Want to try something a little different? Why not roll up the leaves, shred them finely and then fry them. This will give you a taste and texture that resembles crispy seaweed.

Not only do spring greens taste fantastic, they pack a nutritional punch. As part of the brassica family they already have well documented health benefits. Full of vitamin C, spring greens will help to support your immune system, while a healthy dose of vitamin K found in their leaves will build bone strength.

On top of this, spring greens contain natural compounds like sulforaphane and indoles. Evidence suggests that these plant chemicals have anti-inflammatory properties, which could help protect against stroke and heart disease. To get the full benefits of this veg, be sure to keep it refrigerated and eat as close to the purchase date as possible.

Spring greens are easy to find in supermarkets and markets alike and are always a springtime favourite in veggie box schemes. You should expect to pay about £2 per kilo for whole heads. If you choose to buy them ready chopped you will pay more, usually around £5.
