Back to School Meal Ideas

We've been enjoying the summer sunshine over the last few weeks and we're hoping it stays for a little longer!

It's back to school season and we know this can mean some rushing around, a good helping of serious organisation and the never ending search for socks. But don't worry about family cooking and tasty weeknight dinners, we've got you covered.

With some of our delicious Pasta and World Sauces along with a few good ingredients you can make plenty of amazing meals in no time at all. Take a look below for some of our top suggestions, all the recipes below are for four people.

Our Turkey Gravy has changed as we are using a new turkey stock which we think has a fantastic flavour. Perfect over your roast turkey, or with chicken.

Our Tomato Sauce still uses our own special spice blend but we've crammed in more tomatoes and made it lovely and thick.

Both of the new recipes are available through our website and they'll be hitting the shelves of your local stockist soon!

Chicken or Chickpea Korma

  1. Heat a little oil in a pan and add the chicken.
  2. Cook until browned.
  3. Stir in the Kashmiri Korma Sauce and bring to a simmer.
  4. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  5. Serve with the cooked rice and a fresh tomato and onion salad if you like.
  6. If you're using chickpeas, just add them to a saucepan along with the Korma Sauce and bring everything to a simmer.
