Disclaimer: I was compensated and provided with a free half-share bounty box from Relay Foods for my review and recipe. Post contains one affiliate link (discount code) for which I receive compensation. As always, all opinions, thoughts, etc. are my own. I've professed my love for Relay Foods before but in case you're new, Relay Foods is a grocery service that serves Richmond, Charlottesville, and Washington D.C. and provides easy online ordering and pick-up or delivery of your groceries. They place a high emphasis on local and organic produce which is frankly, awesome. Anyways, my friend Brittany who works for Relay (lucky girl!) contacted me about reviewing one of their bounty boxes and coming up with a springy recipe with the ingredients. Of course, I agreed and couldn't wait to get all the goods!
The bounty box is a box of produce that changes weekly and comes in a half ($40) or full share ($60) - I got the half share and I have to say, the amount of stuff you get is in-sane. In my half share I received several pounds of sweet potatoes and regular potatoes, apples, collard greens, kale, and an amazing local arugula pesto. All the items came from local farmers in Virginia which I love since I try to support local farmers whenever I can. It's an incredible value for the amount of local produce you receive - I'm definitely going to be purchasing it again!
I had a really difficult time coming up with a dish to make out of the produce I received - all of it was delicious and my head was spinning with ideas. I finally decided to make a crustless quiche with some of the produce and some local cage-free that I purchased from Relay. Quiche is such a quintessential spring dish to me and this is my attempt to will spring to get here (seriously, I'm over the cold!). The kale and carrots add a nice texture and punch of color plus pack gives it a nice light and fresh flavor. I may or may not have eaten half of it myself in one sitting. #squathunger.
