A yummy yummy win

I was fortunate enough to win this delicious box of Seasonal Produce in association with Knorr and Foreman and Field.

the vegetables

fish, lamb and knorr products

Im not a fish eater unless its fresh tuna, which doesn't taste like fish,  but the other ingredients have been used.

On Sunday evening I decided to do something with the lamb. So I took some thinly sliced potatoes, placed them in a casserole dish along with the baby carrots and I cut the baby leeks in half lengthways and added them. I added 2 of the knorr herb infusion stock pot and half a pint of hot water, then sliced the piece of lamb into 10 slices and put on top of the vegetables.

Placed in the oven for 45mins and served.

the cooked lamb casserole
Oh boy from the minute you add hot water onto the stock pots they smell so delicious, the aroma that wafts through the house is sooooo amazing, and the flavour they add through the food is just indescribable. Now I am a salt fiend but I admit that I did not find salt necessarily it just brings out so much lovely flavour from the food.

The lamb and vegetables were out of this world, the meat was so tender and juicy and so so melt in the mouth, words can not begin to describe it. I have never eaten baby leaks before but again the flavour was awesome. Its time like this  wish I had more of a budget to buy nice meat as this was just beautiful.

I enjoyed what I made and decided that the knorr herb infusion pots were too good not to put in something else so as I had mince I decided to make lasagne.

Fried off 12oz mince, added 2 onions and 2 herb infusion pots, added some water, some chopped rocket (from my garden) and a couple of the baby leeks chopped lengthways. made a gluten free  cheese sauce and layered it into a tin with gluten free lasagne sheets, and cooked for 40 mins at 170 o C.  Again the flavours that came out were just amazing, I cant believe how much difference something so small can make, and wish I had found these herb pots years ago.
