Veggie Ready Meals – Sponsored by Goodness Direct


Amy's Kitchen

Georgia’s Choice Mexican Bean Bake

‘Like the fact that you can taste the sweetcorn, beans and pepper – and good spice levels. Really enjoyed the texture contrast between the crispy crumb, and the veggies & beans filling. Great that it is so 'freefrom'. An excellent simple product.'

Highly commended

GLORIOUS! Soups Mumbai Lentil & Chickpea

'Loved the spice level and texture; plenty of chickpeas – just perfect for a filling lunch on a cold day. Great simple ingredients with no rubbish but with a nice kick – good winter soup.'


Bannisters' Farm Fully Loaded Jacket with Broccoli & Cauliflower Cheese

‘Nice idea to extend the range of a baked spud – jacket potato well cooked, broccoli and cauliflower surprisingly retained their crunch; lovely cheesy  flavour.'

Kirsty’s Malaysian Butternut Squash Curry with Brown Basmati Rice

'A little oversweet but good to have a vegan option with a decent protein content. Liked the brown rice and peppers and enjoyed the spice level.'

Voakes Free From Sweet Roasted Root Vegetable Pie

'Every newly-diagnosed coeliac should be presented with one of these to restore their hope in life! Delicious pastry but overly long list of ingredients. Vegetables a bit sweet and amorphous.'
