I tried out imperfect produce too...

in #food3 years ago

After seeing the post by @iseeyouvee regarding Imperfect Produce, I had to check it out myself!

You can see her post here: post.

I love making bit soups or stews so this sounded like a great idea to me. Who cares how a vegetable looks when it is chopped up and soaked in stock?!

It comes in a very minimalist box that is left at the door with all of the fruits and vegetables sitting at the bottom.

I pulled out everything and was quite pleased with what I saw considering that the delivery is only around $20 (food and delivery cost included).

This looked like a perfect mix to make a soup so I took these from the new vegetables:

  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Regular Potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Red/Yellow Peppers

And combined with other things I had laying around:

  • Ground Beef
  • Vegetable and Beef Stock
  • Garlic
  • Onions
  • Spices
  • Butter
  • Somewhat cut up spaghetti noodles (only added at the very end so it isn't too soft)
  • Celery

So it started out looking like this:

And a few hours later, it looks like this:

Delicious and the whole thing lasted me almost two weeks!

I would definitely recommend checking out Imperfect Produce if it is in you area. A great, cheap way to add some healthy fruits and vegetables to your diet.

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm so glad you tried and enjoyed this.

For sure - thanks again for sharing! It will definitely be a part of my food purchasing plans going forward...

I must try this. You are right that it doesn't matter what the vegetable looked like once you chop it up.
