Cupboard Love: Tesco Healthy Living Spiced Butternut with Fruity Pilaf & Feta

After my post on the Tesco Healthy Living launch last week
(Click HERE)
I've decided to review some of my favourite products from the range on a regular basis.

This Spicy Butternut with Fruity Pilaf & Feta is one of their
Beautifully Balanced dishes.
It comes with a sumac and yoghurt dip.
It cost £3.25 and has 9pp/349kcals per pack.


Although I love cooking from scratch and using fresh ingredients, even I have the odd day when I'm too tired or busy to make a meal. So I thought I'd give this vegetarian dish a try.
I have a few little tricks up my sleeve when using supermarket ready meals...

Cook according to the packaging but always take care to present it attractively in a proper dish.
It seems much more homemade this way!

Serve it how you like it-instead of using the yoghurt as a dipping sauce as shown on the packaging, I drizzled mine over the hot meal-enhancing the melted, creamy feta and complimenting the soft butternut squash.

Have a taste but never be afraid to jazz up a ready meal to your personal taste. This dish was delicious but I wanted mine with a kick so I added a little chilli sauce!

Garnish with a few fresh herbs...and if you're really hungry, bulk out the meal with a load of wilted spinach!


My verdict: filling, delicious, great textures, loved the melted feta-very 'homemade' tasting- a definite yes from me!

Aw looks really tasty. I'm glad supermarkets are improving their ready meals and making them healthier, so easy just to pick up when you can't be bothered to cook! xx
