Deze week in het pakket / this week's package

Next week’s package has all the makings of some signature Levantine appetisers and side dishes. Why not transform the aubergines into a smoky baba ganoush? Or, rustle up a fattoush salad: finely slice the radishes and mix into the chopped lettuce and cucumbers before topping with crispy (pita) croutons and a zesty dressing made of olive oil, lemon, garlic and pomegranate molasses (or balsamic vinegar). Lekker!

We hope you like this package again, please don’t forget to change your status before Sunday 8 pm if necessary.
