June Finds - New Vegetarian Products

Well it's been quite a while since a roundup. The last few weeks have consisted of me, mostly completing my research module, and finding no time for blogging, cooking or even eating! In this time though, there have been some fab new discoveries, which have kept me going as I squirrelled away writing essays late into the night.

Manomasa Tortilla Chips
First up are Manomasa Tortilla Chips. As a big Fan of Mexican food, I was happy to receive this exciting new brand of Tortilla Chips "with spirit". The Tortilla Chips are available in three delicious flavours, Chipotle and Lime, White Cheddar and Sea Salt, and Cracked Black Pepper.

Manomasa Tortilla Chips are a little different as they have a distinctive shape, and are made from white or yellow corn masa. They also use different ingredients such as Sunflower, Linseed, and Caraway, to create textures, for extra flavour and depth. Their shape, means that they are also great for scooping or dipping. We dipped them in sour cream and salsa - yum!

We sampled all three flavours of Tortilla Chips and they were a welcome break from the typical flavours you normally find Tortillas in. Our favourites by a long mile were the Chipotle and Lime, they were so delicious, and I loved the fiery kick of the Chilli, coupled with the tanginess of the Lime.

Manomasa Chips are available from Ocado, whole foods market and Fortnum and Mason, and independent delis and shops, priced at £1.99 per 160g bag. Find them on Twitter @manomasa_

Great Food
We were also sent some great summer foods, Falafels from Great Food. Great Food produce real, balanced food stuffed full of vegetables, herbs and spices. Their products are vegetarian, kosher, halal, gluten, nut and dairy free. We received Original Falafels, Morroccan Falafels, Sweet Potato Pakoras, and Mint Quinoa and Broad Bean bites. The products are all steam cooked rather than fried. We loved all four of the products, although the Mint and Quinoa were my personal favourites, along with the Morroccan Falafels.

These snack bites are great when coupled with some pitta breads and dips for a feast, or they also make a great alternative to burgers and sausages. You can eat them hot and cold, and they are super tasty. We are falafel converts in our house! Great Food products are
available in all major supermarkets, priced form £1.79. You can find great food on twitter @greatfood_uk 

Dees Whole Foods
I was also sent some products from Dees Whole Foods who produce "tasty Vegan Burgers and Sausages". Unfortunately, when they arrived, the PR company had sent them through the post, and they had sat at the sorting office for two days, so I did not feel that I was able to eat them safely. However. You can check out the Dees Wholefoods online and perhaps try them and see what you think for yourself. You can also find them on twitter @Deeswholefoods
