Next month is National Picnic Week (15th-24th June) so I thought I would do a post today about what Ginsters products I would take to a picnic.
First up I would pack the Ginsters Katsu Chicken Slice (370 calories) which is a blend of coconut milk, spring onions and garlic in a Katsu curry sauce. I love Katsu curry so these slices are a nice alternative! We also have the Ginsters Piri Piri Chicken slices (349 calories) which is a spicy tomato sauce with parprika, lemon zest and dried tomato puree.
If I had any of my vegetarian friends coming to the picnic I would pack the Cornish Cheddar & Caramelised Onion Pasty, with extra mature cheddar, caramelised onions, spring onions and wholegrain mustard. This product won a bronze award at the tenth annual British Pie Awards in March. Onto a winner here.
We also have the Moroccan Vegetable Pasty which has butternut squash, chickpeas, roasted red peppers and harissa. Both of these are also suitable for flexitarians too. Here is an idea of what you could serve with this:
“ Apricots and pomegranate help to bring alive this couscous, that when served with the pasty adds sweetness and colour.”
50g Pomegranate seeds
50g Dried Mango, diced
1 tblsp Mint, finely chopped
40g Olive Oil
25ml Balsamic Vinegar
1. Place cous cous in a bowl and pour 150ml of boiling water on top. Cover with a plate and allow the water to be absorbed.
2. Flake up the granules with a fork and tumble in Ramiro peppers, pomegranate, raisins, dried mango, mint, olive oil, Balsamic vinegar and a teaspoon of sea salt.
Place into a serving dish and chill until needed.
I love cous cous so I’m definitely going to give this recipe a go. This summer I want to try out a few recipes so I might in time make a recipe section on my blog.
If you have any tasty recipes I should try please get in touch 🙂
