Our meal box menu is changing – for the better!

Since the first food truck we’ve always made it a priority to let our customers in on what’s going on behind the scenes, even when we make mistakes. This is because we believe that getting better requires transparency and dedication to learning, listening, and tinkering.

Recently, we’ve taken a hard look at our home meal box menu. We realized that with a few small additions, we could maximize the amount of produce on your plates, encourage the menu to change more frequently, and funnel more $ to local farmers.

With that, we are saying goodbye to a few of our mainstay boxes – we’ve bid farewell to the Starter Box and the Weeknight Favorites box and your last chance to get the Mediterranean Box is coming up.

The good news is we’re doing this to make room for our amazing celebration boxes (like the Pi menu from tonight, our fast-selling Maple Celebration Box and more seasonal boxes like our brand new Early Spring Box!)

For anyone who’s new to Clover or just wants a starter pack of all the most popular items, we’re adding a new Greatest Hits Box featuring all the (you guessed it) greatest hits from Clover!

Here is a quick rundown on our newest boxes…

The Early Spring Box

Celebrate the first signs of spring!

  • Meal 1: Spring Dug Parsnip Sandwich Kit
  • Meal 2: Tuscan Pesto Pasta with Radishes 2 ways
  • Meal 3: Farro Mushroom Soup with Romesco, Pita & Farm Salad
  • Spring Dug Parsnip Fritters (like donut holes from Mother Earth!)
  • 2 rotating side salads
  • Lavender Sugar Shortbread
  • Fruit Mousse with Oat Crumb Crust

New Greatest Hits Box

The “now that’s what I call music” of Clover meals
All the most popular items from 2 years of meal-boxing

  • Meal 1: Chickpea Fritter Sandwich Kit
  • Meal 2: Impossible Kofta Kit – Middle Eastern Meatballs, Tomato Stew & Turmeric Rice Pilaf
  • Meal 3: Seasonal Soup & Seasonal Salad Set
    (right now: Parsnip Pear Soup & White Bean Kale Basil Salad)
  • Lavender Sugar Shortbread
  • Fudgy Brownies

Not ready for a full box?
You can now purchase individual meals from all the boxes! Sized for 2-4 people, these meals will change often to stay in line with what’s coming out of the ground. Think Tuscan Pasta with Radishes 2-ways, Impossible Kofta with Stew & Turmeric Rice, or a Spring Dug Parsnip Sandwich kit.

This week has been a flurry of preparations as we kick off the 2024 food truck season.

Every year, just after Valentine’s Day, we start getting the same question in from customers: Will there be a Passover Box this year? Sometimes the pleas are more direct, sometimes more colorful. The glories of the vegetarian Chopped Liver are a common theme. This year, Sarah, an NYC-based friend of mine said she’s spent so much time thinking about the emails describing last year’s box that she’s DRIVING UP TO BOSTON to claim one!

We have a new sandwich out everywhere today. It’s a take on a Buffalo Chicken sandwich. We use celery root, aka celeriac, this nobbly, gnarled joy of a winter vegetable. We cut it into planks, batter it with panko, and fry it. We’re getting ours from Norwich Meadows Farm, a farm in NY state that’s known for creating really flavorful organic veggies using a cool irrigation system.

For the week of Valentine’s Day, we’ll be delivering these Making Whoopie (Pie) Kits 😉. They have everything you need to make whoopie pies — more specifically, Chris’ favorite oatmeal cakes with beet buttercream frosting. You’ll also get a scoop for making the perfect size pie, and a roll of sugar cookie dough for more sweet fun.

Chances are you’ve tried the new Clover Bowls. We’ve been running them since the Spring. After a few tweaks, we landed on a roster we love: the Mediterranean Bowl, the Verde Rice and Bean Bowl, and a Rotating Seasonal Bowl. The bowls have transformed our menu – Josh, a Kendall customer, recently wrote to us, “The beet poke bowl is the best new item I’ve tried at Clover in years. I love the freshness and bite of the mix of flavors.” We’ve also heard some very good suggestions about how to make them even better…

New Year’s Eve is no time to be buried in the kitchen, so we pack our NYE Box with Clover fan favorites that come together fast and encourage a night of Finger-Food Feasting. Can you think of anything better than digging into bubbling hot Brussels Sprout Cheese dip on a freezing cold Boston night? Or scooping up our bright nutty Romesco sauce as the clock ticks to midnight?  And our breakthrough Carrot Lox (probably the best thing to come out of our food dev in 2023) will have you resolving to spare more salmon in the year ahead.

These sweet potato latkes date back to early days on the Clover food truck. They’re so yummy and the sweet potatoes lend them such a fun golden color. They’re probably the most popular item in our Hanukkah Meal Box, which you can get delivered on December 7th. Inside the box you’ll find:
