I've had a really busy week and it's only Wednesday!
I haven't had much time to plan ahead or prepare meals. Thinking about food prep and propointing can be time-consuming, so sometimes it's handy to have food in the fridge that does all the work for you.
There's nothing wrong with using convenience foods to help you save time, especially if you know they're packed full of great ingredients.
Tesco Healthy Living
Spicy Lentil & Chickpea Dip
fits into this category perfectly and even has the propoints worked out for you on the packaging!
It's only 2pp/81kcal for quarter of the pot, made with an interesting combination of ingredients and tastes fab too.
If I had to describe the taste, I'd say it's a little like a vegetarian coronation chicken flavour with a houmous texture.
I spread a serving onto large raw mushrooms, added a few chopped chives, a grind of black pepper and hey presto!
An instant, filling little snack.
I often use raw mushrooms in this way-they have a great texture and you save a huge amount on propoint/calorie-laden crackers or toast!
You could even go the whole hog and dollop with 15g of mango chutney for an extra 1pp/40kcal
