There has never been a better time to Live Life on the Veg.

Our refined range means a little less flexibility for some, but with that comes opportunity. Many of us have more time at home, more chances to cook and the potential to find new rhythms that can become a way of life.

Here you will find inspiration to adjust to new ways of cooking and living over the coming weeks. Alongside are lots of activities to keep you entertained and connected to the community around your Riverford veg box.

So join us, let’s #LiveLifeontheVeg.



It's easy to get stuck in a recipe rut – but what better time to try new things in the kitchen?


Veg Help

Here we share our veg expertise to guide you through everything from kohl-rabi, to cabbages, to artichokes.



Here you’ll find a number of community resources, positive stories and things to do, to let food lift your spirits and connect you with others in this uncertain time​.

Recipe of the Week

Slow roasted tomato tarte tatin

This is an intensely flavourful tart, redolent of summer. Although the tomatoes take a while to cook, they require little attention and the result is sublimely delicious. Eat for lunch or dinner with a crisp green salad or lightly blanched green beans.
Serves 4 - Total time 3h

New potatoes

Chef Bob focuses on new potatoes/Jersey Royals for this week's Veg Hack. He cooks them in a bag, or 'en papillote' as the French call it, for a theatrical and aromatic recipe. You can use a stapler/paper clips if you don't have Bulldog clips.

Colouring Sheet

Get creative with our colouring sheet, drawn by co-owner Lina who works in our Quality Control department. We were so impressed we had to share it. Once finished, consider displaying in your window to share a dash of colour with your veg box delivery driver, and passers-by.
