I love cooking a fresh meal from scratch but when I get home from working a nine hour day chopping, grating and waiting for food is the last thing that I want to do. The Scratch Fresh Meal Kits are a great alternative as everything is ready chopped and they take hardly any time to cook.
I love the story behind Scratch, which can be read here. Michael Roux Snr is part of the Scratch team which instantly tells you that it will be good food.
We picked this little kit up from Waitrose, at £5.99 it seems pretty expensive, though when you consider that the kit contains every ingredient including the meat it really isn't too bad. The portions are big so you don't need any side orders, you are literally paying £5.99 for a meal for two.
The food comes in separate compartments with clear, easy to follow instructions.
Fry the chicken for four minutes.
Add the Pad Thai Sauce, carrots, bean sprouts & noodles whilst stirring. Cook for a further three minutes.
Finish by adding the spring onion and peanuts and mix through with the noodles.
Squeeze in the lime before serving.
Both Spencer and I really enjoyed this meal and were pleasantly full afterwards, they certainly don't scrimp on the ingredients. Neither of us have tried Pad Thai Noodles before or since so don't have anything to compare it to.
"Satisfaction - Mountain of" I agree!
I'm looking forward to trying out some of the other recipes when I have a working kitchen again.
Have you tried these meal kits? Are they something that you like the look of?
