Want to cook up nourishing veggie feasts but run out of time mid week? Fear not, Merchant Gourmet foods have it covered! (You should be able to get these packets in most supermarkets usually down the rice isle). I really don’t do a lot of packet stuff and if I do it’s with things that have as few ingredients as possible and definitely no horrendous additives, these guys are genuinely pretty great for a grab and go kind of vibe! This dish was whipped up in all of about ten minutes, tasted super delicious and there was enough of it for lunch the next day too.
1 x courgette (if you have a spirulizer, if not you can cheat even more with pre made courgetti)
1 x pack of Merchant Gourmet Tomatey Puy Lentils
1 x pack of Merchant Gourmet Super Seeds with Quinoa & Chia Seeds
1 x glass bottle of good quality tomato and herb passata (or add your bolognese herbs at home)
Pinch of salt and pepper to taste, and a little basil and oregano if you have them 🙂
Throw the Merchant Gourmet mixes into a pan with a little oil, a pinch of salt and pepper, a little basil and oregano and then mix in the passata. Let it all heat through whilst in a separate pan you slightly warm through the courgette with a little coconut oil and pepper (its a little easier on digestion when warmed, you could also steam). Wait until it’s piping and then serve.
