As a parent I am a huge advocate for cooking homemade, nutritious meals from scratch. But I am also a busy, working, single mum who knows there are times you will need a quick and easy meal from the freezer. Some days work runs over and I am late home, some days I forget to take meat out of the freezer the night before, and some days I just don’t want to cook. Picking the right food to keep in the freezer means I can still make healthier choices when days like this crop up. The Goodlife vegetarian range is perfect for keeping in the freezer for emergency days.
The Goodlife vegetarian range – the mission
Goodlife want to put vegetables in the spotlight and celebrate them in all their natural glory. The healthiest vegetables are found from the best UK farmers. Their vegetarian sausages, burgers and kievs are full of veg with no artificial additives, preservatives or colourings. They look good, do good and taste good!
The Goodlife vegetarian range – Vegetable masala with cauliflower rice
First up from the Goodlife vegetarian range is the vegetable masala with cauliflower rice. It has a pretty impressive 3 of your 5 a day veggies in. This cooks in the oven in 35 minutes or in the microwave in 8 minutes. The curry is really tasty, full of yummy veg chunks and isn’t too spicy at all. I am not a fan of cauliflower but did try the cauliflower rice. It definitely tastes of cauliflower so isn’t for me. The curry and rice are in separate compartments so it is easy enough to throw a microwaveable bag of rice in too and just serve the curry with that. I really love the sweet potato chunks in the curry so I will definitely look at swapping my usual chicken for that next time I am making a curry.
The Goodlife vegetarian range – Falafal with chickpea, cumin and coriander
Next from the Goodlife vegetarian range is the falafel with chickpeas, cumin and coriander. These are also suitable for vegans. They cook in the oven in 15 minutes. The bitesize balls are delicious! Really full of flavour with a nice heat and unusual flavours. They are definitely our favourite of the range.
The Goodlife vegetarian range – French bean and spinach sausages with wensleydale cheese
The French bean and spinach sausages with wensleydale cheese are the next product from the Goodlife vegetarian range. You can grill, fry or oven bake these in 15-20 minutes. The sausages are another favourite as they are so tasty and still seem quite meaty too. I will quite happily switch from my usual sausages to these.
The Goodlife vegetarian range – Mushroom and spinach kiev with a creamy garlic and cheese sauce
Last up from the Goodlife vegetarian range is the mushroom and spinach kiev with garlic and cheese sauce. The kievs cook in the oven in 20 minutes. Mushrooms are not the biggest hit here in my house but we did give these a go. They surprisingly did go down well as the other flavours are much stronger. I love the oozing, cheesy centre, the thick breadcrumbs and spinach which is my all time fave veggie.
The Goodlife vegetarian range – final thoughts
The Goodlife vegetarian range is a great addition to a family freezer. The products are healthy, packed full of veggies and really tasty. For us the falafel and sausages were the winners of the range. Both are something I will be restocking next time I go shopping.
You can buy the Goodlife vegetarian range from Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Iceland, Waitrose and Ocado. They are £2.25 each which I think is comparable to other freezer goods.
Have you tried any of these products yet? Would you be willing to make a switch to vegetarian alternatives?
