Organic, tasty and colourful soups and sauces

I really like to add fresh ready made sauces to my cooking but making my own is sometimes difficult to make small enough quantities for a meal for two. As I look for as many organic ingredients for our meals as possible discovering some new additions to Tideford organic soups, sauces and a pudding were welcome finds especial for anyone wanting products that are gluten-free, low in salt, low fat, with mainly vegetarian & vegan products and no additives or preservatives.

Of this new summer range the Westcountry Cheddar Cheese Sauce went very well with ham steaks, and the Carbonara with Bacon and Nutmeg was excellent with chicken breasts, new potatoes and broccoli. Both sauces are made with organic, vegetarian Westcountry cheese.

Others to choose from include:

Jalapeno Salsa      Mediterranean Vegetable Sauce     Tomato & Basil Sauce

They all retail at £2.59 with the Ragu a la Bolognese £2.99 and Basil Pesto at £3.75.

Of the two new soups our favourite was the Pea & Mint Soup. There was some left over so next day we added a few frozen peas, grated cheese and more mint and hey, we had a light starter for lunch. The other soup, Minestroni with gluten-free Pasta went down well with the men, can’t imagine why! Must be the chilli! Tideford Organics Pea & Mint Soup

The tasty soup range includes

Farmhouse Chicken with Lemon & Thyme     Italian Tomato with Lentil & Red Pepper     Beetroot with Crème Fraiche & Dill     Spicy Butternut Squash with Sweet Potato     All retailing at £2.79.

We absolutely loved the new Chocolate Rice Pudding, suffice it to say we have  tracked it down and it seems to regularly appear on the shopping list!  It’s delish hot or cold. We love the Classic and Butterscotch Rice Puddings which are also gluten and wheat-free and oh so creamy.

All these super products can all be found at Ocado, Waitrose, Sainsburys, Abel & Cole, Wholefoods, Booths and independent retailers.

It’s possible to follow Tideford on Facebook Tideford Organics Ltd and Twitter @TidefordOrganic.

Have a look at their very informative website. You will get a good look at their products and an insight into their ethos.
