Great Food Delicate Tuscan Vegetable Bites
Whilst perusing Asda recently and looking for a "healthier" snacking option I came across some new products from a company called Great Food. They make "seriously tasty vegetarian food", a lot of which is vegan, dairy free and gluten free too. These Delicate Tuscan Vegetable Bites fall into the latter camp and are also soya free, nut free and even legume free. Woohoo, they've catered for pretty much every allergy!
There's 9 bites per pack, which look a bit like falafel. They're baked not fried and are ready to eat, although you can put them in the oven for 4-5 mins or microwave for 30-60 seconds to enjoy at their best. The ingredients consist of butternut squash, potatoes, spinach, potato flakes, carrot, onion, rapeseed oil, and spices. Can't get more #cleaneating than that!
I didn't have a microwave handy unfortunately so I ate them as they were. They're very flavoursome and filling for something made purely from vegetables, with a slightly moist, springy texture. I didn't need many to feel full and felt rather satisfied after a few.
Overall, these Tuscan Vegetable Bites are a pretty tasty meat-free snack if you're on the go and I'm sure they'd go great as a side dish with a meal too - I bet they're lovely warmed up!
