When I visit family I sometimes like to pick up a little meal on the way for convenience. I recently bought Dee’s Tex Mex veg pot from Holland & Barrett.
This medium sized pot can be microwaved or tipped into a saucepan to warm through. I chose to microwave my pot, and I didn’t have anything with it. The mixture was very hot and had a good amount of Mexican spice and flavour, but it was kind of like a soup and I wished I had some rice or pasta to mix into it. All in all I enjoyed the meal but despite the great amount of beans and vegetables I felt it needed accompanying grains to take it from a snack to a proper meal. The 400g pot is vegan, gmo and gluten free. It is low in salt and fat, high in fibre and protein and contains vitamins A, E, C, K1, B1, B3, and B6. As well as this it contains folate, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, potassium, copper, and manganese, so the veg pot is extremely healthy. I paid £1.99 for a reduced pot, the full price is £3.99. What I paid was well worth it, however I am not sure the full price is.
