What’s in the box?

Broad bean season is still in full swing, judging from this week’s box. Two cheeky red peppers, a mini cucumber and a punnet of tomatoes suggest it’s time for Gazpacho Revisited.
The most exciting addition to this week’s vegbox is half-a-dozen stems of alert-looking rhubarb. Interesting that these arrived in the vegbox and not the fruit box. I know that in theory they are a vegetable, but they’re rarely cooked as a savoury in England. I’ve got an intriguing Jane Grigson recipe for rhubarb and ham soup. I might try it, although Maths chick has her heart set on rhubarb crumble for Sunday dinner. And who can blame her?
