Foraged Marrows

Free stuff. I ♥ free stuff. And you know what they say – one man’s marrow is another man’s masterpiece. #FTW (forage the win!) says Charlie! During Henry & my day of filming foraging we happened across this crate of free veg and so took one for our dinner.

Foraged Marrows

It’s funny, people always say I’m lucky to live where I do – and that’s true. But free veg boxes, walnut trees, cherry trees, elderflower bushes (and other things I’ve come across recently) don’t throw themselves in your face… it’s more a case of once you start looking, then you start finding. Which I suppose is important in many aspects of life, isn’t it?

So what to do with marrows? I had very little idea, but my general fail-safe way to cook vegetables is to stuff them. And foraging around in the reduced section of the supermarket, I also found these… (large portions of feta cheese & tomato dressing for 30p each!).

Marrows topped with feta cheese, chopped tomatoes & peppers, and breadcrumbs… definitely a winner of a side-dish, and cost next to nothing to make.
