Whilst shopping online at Tesco I stumbled across the Bol range of dinner boxes, which are plant based ready-meals in a cardboard tray (thankfully not plastic, which is a bit of a deal-breaker for me).
Fire Roasted Cauliflower-Tikka Masala
The Tika Masala wasn’t quite sweet enough and I had no idea where the ‘sweet pickled onions’ were!? I did really like the combination of ingredients though.
Caribbean Jerk, Rice and Peas
This tasted like it was homemade comfort food at its best.
Thai Panang Coconut Curry
I thought this contained too much lemongrass and citrus flavour and not enough coconut so I added two pinches of sugar. The butternut squash was cooked perfectly.
South Indian Spiced Chickpea Curry
Again, the flavour of citrus overwhelmed the other flavours, which I balanced by adding some sugar.
I noticed that every meal had a lot of ‘leafy greens’ in them, which I didn’t mind but it was rather repetitive.
I loved all of the chutneys and used them on the rice and greens. I don’t usually like quinoa but mixed with rice it tasted lovely.
I’d buy these again because they are a quick and simple way of getting vegetarian and dairy free, balanced meals for one, which I’d never be able to cook for my self.
