Product Review

Keith and I made a pact awhile ago to try new things. Every week we attempt to try one new thing we have previously never had, or been scared to try or whatever. And it's been awesome, we've been enjoying so many things that we've been missing out on, and Mairi of course loves anything LOL so she benefits from it as well.

A few weeks ago while grocery shopping, I spotted this jar of Tikka Masala. I was like, hmm, that looks good and healthy and nice to have for the times I don't want to cook or whatever. I grabbed it, bought and promptly threw it in the back of my cupboard.

Keith busted it out tonight, and made a FABULOUS chicken and quinoa dish (we are obsessed with quinoa, did you know it's like BREASTMILK? and you all know how i feel about that :P It's a complete protein with an essential amino acid balance close to breastmilk!) and wow. Now I want to make it, and so shortly I'll be trying out a recipe for it, but in the meantime, if you come across this, great to have in your cupboard. Next time I'm going to use it to grill out kebobs, mmmm.

There are a bunch of other simmer sauces from this line too and I can't WAIT to try more!! Which one should I try next? Madras? Probably too spicy for me, but maybe I'll try it (should have when I was preggo with Eli and he made me love all things spicy!) I'm leaning towards Korma, coconut curry sauce-I'm a big fan of coconut lately! OH but Jalfrezi is coconut too, just a bit spicier, hmm.

  1. Korma is DELISH!!!! You MUST try it! It's sooooooo good with onions, garlic, red pepper, chicken and over top of brown rice.

  2. I love quinoa, too. It's so yummy as a cold salad, with red onion, green onion, red peppers, fresh parsley, chick peas and a red wine vinegar and olive oil sauce.
