Whats in Season - April

Whats in Season - April

Purple Sprouting Brocolli 
As well as being beautiful to look at, this veg' is packed with vitamins and minerals.

Spanish Strawberries
In season slightly early this year is the much-adored strawb'! Lucky for us in Scotland, we've had a few brighter days to enjoy them in the sun!

Hispy Cabbages
Also known as sweetheart cabbages, these are beautifully fragrant and rich with iron. After giving them a good steam, we recommend slathering them in butter and adding a small squeeze of lemon juice.

Deliciously sweet plums fresh in store! 

New Potatoes
The super versatile new potato is perfect in spring salads.

Growing in popularity by the day, we have the cauliflower - with cheese, steamed, stir fried, riced or blended and baked into a carb-free crust - the possibilities are endless!

Outdoor English Rhubarb
It's surprisingly easy to cook rhubarb so if you haven't already, now is the time to prepare a crumble, compote or other sweet pud'.

Crunchy and sweet, fresh peas in a pod are a tasty snack but also a great accompaniment for any meal! 

Wild Garlic
Its prime time for Wild Garlic! This underrated, mellow cousin of traditional garlic is wonderful in everything from omelettes, risottos and even in a pesto.

Find us 457 Great Western Road or 1137 Argyle Street and stock up with these seasonal gems.

Mheat - Now Available in Wholefoods & Organics

Mheat - Now Available in Wholefoods & Organics

Mheat Vegan Meat Range at Roots Fruits and Flowers Glasgow

We're delighted to now be stocking Mheat in our wholefoods and organics store. Mheat is Paisley Glasgow based food company Sgaia's new plant-based, vegan, meat replacement that's quickly gaining a fantastic reputation.

Hilary and Alberto from Sgai describe themselves as enthusiastic explorers, dedicated learners, avid listeners and happy herbivores. They are passionate about food culture, nutrition, health and learning about the cultural significance of food in relation to current social systems and environments.

"Here at Sgaia we strongly believe in making plant-based lifestyles and dietary choices equal to those of omnivores. Plant-based living is often seen as a 'giving-up' on food culture, in order to embrace another. We believe that a change in lifestyle shouldn't necessarily mean a change in what we identify with in terms of food culture, nor should it involve being forced to purchase expensive, imported foods. This is why we're proud to be an entirely UK based company, striving to get us all surfing on this New Wave of British Vegan Living."

Mheat Vegan Meat Range at Roots Fruits and Flowers Glasgow

We just recently started stocking some of their tasty vegan Mheat products.

"Mheat is our own take on a very popular, originally asian food, seitan. Seitan (say-tan) is, essentially, a food made with the protein extracted from wheat flour: gluten. Wheat gluten, as a food product, originated in China sometime around the 6th Century, and was especially popular as a substitute for meat amongst buddhists. Lovingly hand-made by us as per the traditional method, with a few little tweaks here and there, our unique recipe is flavourful, high in protein, low in fat, and features all the knowledge we’ve developed overtime in our little kitchen."

We're very excited about this young, local company and can't wait to see what they produce next and we look forward to continuing to stock our shelves with their wonderful products for all of our vegan customers to enjoy.
