Do you struggle to find tasty alternatives to potatoes and rice? These handy pouches from Mr Oliver are packed with pulses and grains…
Eaten hot or cold, and promoted as a healthy alternative side dish to potatoes and rice, the Jamie Oliver Ready to Eat Pouches are a quick and tasty way to get some fuel in you. The eye-catching packaging comes with suggestions of what to put it on the side of, as well as a look at what lies inside…
The range includes six packs:
- Incredible Curried Chickpeas
- Lovely Lentils
- Mouth-watering Moroccan Salad
- Sensational Sweet Chilli Spelt
- Marvellous Mustard Pearl Barley
- Super sundried Tomato Quinoa
Done in the microwave in just one minute, the packs do offer a quick snack on their own or a delicious accompaniment to meat, fish, cheese and vegetables. My favourite was the curried chickpeas with a subtle spiciness to them and, as a vegetarian, I found it worked well on it’s own. Some of the packs did require a little seasoning to be eaten on their own but they were fantastic for a quick hunger-fix.
They are free from any unnecessary additives and bulking agents and are made from superfood pulses and grains. You can get a high protein fix from the super sundried tomato quinoa and the curried chickpeas (above) are good for slow-releasing energy.
