(Ad - Gifted) A Festive Food Survival Kit from Spice Pots - Review!

 One of the things I love about Christmas is all of the delicious food that comes with it. My favourite meal of the whole year is Christmas dinner but I do love using up the leftovers too although I am sometimes at a loss what to make with them. 

If you want some help for surviving the 12 days of Christmas this is where Spice Pots come in.

The Festive Food Survival Kit has been designed for those who lead busy lives and need some help over the Christmas period with both gifting and meal planning. At just £14.95 it makes a great stocking filler, a gift for a host, a secret santa gift, christmas gift for foodies or of course a treat to yourself!

The Festive Food Survival Kit

The Festive Food Survival Kit includes:

A booklet with 8 Festive Food Recipes; including nibbles, leftover recipes, curry recipes for in between days and sweet treats.
3 Savoury Curry Spices - Korma - mild, Bhuna - medium & Goan - hot in heat.
1 Sweet Spice for festive desserts and baking.

The tins of spices each have around 8 servings in and they are all 100% natural and vegan friendly.

Over the next couple of weeks I am going to give these spices a try using a couple of recipes which are included in the recipe booklet: The Chicken fried rice sounds great and the Sweet Spiced apple pie sounds amazing!

Fried rice with chicken/turkey and vegetables recipe.

This is such a simple recipe and so good for using up any leftovers from your Sunday roast or Christmas dinner. Obviously, you can omit the meat for a vegetarian dish and use up any leftover veg too.

1 tablespoon oil.
1 onion, finely chopped.
3 cloves garlic, crushed.
4 cm piece of ginger, grated.
2 teaspoons Korma Spice Blend.
Fresh chilli (optional).
300 - 400g Cooked chicken, chopped (or use leftover Roast Pork, Roast Ham or Roast Beef or your Christmas Turkey)
Vegetables - Any leftovers.
1 tablespoon soy sauce.
1 tablespoon honey.
350g cooked brown rice.
Fresh coriander, chopped.

Heat the oil and fry the onions until soft and translucent.  Add the ginger, garlic and chilli and cook for another minute or so.  Add the Korma spices and cook for a minute. (If the mixture is looking very dry, add a couple of tablespoons of water before adding the Korma spice to stop the spices burning).  Add the vegetables and stir fry (or warm through if leftovers). Then simply add in the chopped chicken / turkey / ham and cooked rice. Stir well to combine. Mix together the soy sauce and honey and mix in.  Stir well and cook through. Add the fresh coriander and serve.

I think this will go down so well on Boxing day when we're all full from too much chocolate. hehehe

You can buy various spice pots, gift sets and refills from the Spice Pots website or you can check to see if they are stocked locally to you.

I was sent the Festive Food Survival Kit from Spice Pots free of charge in exchange for this blog post.
