By eating vegetables raw you lock in all the nutrients so this salad is wonderfully healthy and tasty. It’s great alongside a plate of cold meats and cheeses or equally fantastic with a succulent steak and chips.
The secret to these chipotle mushroom fajitas is our Fresh Thyme & Balsamic Dressing which gives a sweet, almost caramelised edge to the veggies. Serve with warm tortillas and your favourite toppings.
Braised red cabbage is a staple of Christmas and a comforting side dish, particularly during the winter months. This is our twist on the usual recipe, using our Fresh Thyme and Blackberry Ketchup to add a touch of fresh herbs while also making the recipe a cinch to prepare - this is a true one pot wonder.
We’ve been getting creative with our fresh herb dips and have come up with a few tasty ways to use them that don’t involve “dipping”? Here’s our top 10…
A Little Bit Food Co is founded on a long tradition of horticulture and gardening, and we want to do our part to ensure a healthy environment for all creatures. That’s why we’ve joined the Bumblebee Conservation Trust community, a charity whose mission is to halt and reverse the decline of bumblebees in the UK.
So, as you saw from the last blog post – we are pledging to go plastic-free. This news has been well received amongst our customers, retailers and consumers alike. So much so in fact, that we managed to get our current plastic-free certified products in to the Thornton’s Budgens for their landmark first plastic-free aisle.
Thornton’s Budgens in North London launched its mission to reduce dependency on single-use plastic packaging supported by local resisident celebrities Dame Janet Suzman and Jim Broadbent.
Backed by plastic-free trust mark owners, A Plastic Planet, 1757 products made the first cut, with more products planned.
It was a real pleasure to be featured alongside other brands also trying to lessen their environmental impact, such as Tea Pigs, Two Farmers Crisps, Divine Chocolate, Hampstead Tea, Percol, Troo, Alara, The Curiosities Co, Pep & Lekker, Lovechoc, Superfoodies, Little Goat Co, Georganics, Who Gives a Crap, Simply Soaps, Vegelove, J Cocoa, The Original Laces Co, Renegage and Langdon, Wasabi Co, Go Bites, Drivers Pickles, Edgy Moose, Abeego, Bambu and many more I can’t recall off the top of my head!
There are still many products packed in materials that we take from our planet that can’t be broken back down by our natural flora or fauna, however initiatives like this within Thornton’s Budgens really highlight what we can achieve in a short space of time.
We are investing in protecting what we have today, for our future generations. Yes it may cost us more, yes it may marginally affect shelf life for some products, but these are small sacrifices for a much greater cause.
We’re delighted to announce that our full range of products will be plastic-free from January 2019! A Little Bit Food Co was born out of a long standing interest in horticulture and gardening - you could say that environmental sustainability has always been in our “roots”. We felt that going plastic free was the next big step in our evolution.
This parsley pesto with pine nuts and lemon is a delicious and versatile recipe for parsley, and great option if you find yourself with an abundance of parsley in the garden. As with all pestos this is great tossed with pasta or topped on a pizza, but there are plenty of other uses for this pesto beyond the ordinary.
