Speedy Chef 2 Doner Kebabs

Cooked for 2 mins as instructed, in a more powerful microwave than instructed (800W) and took a bite; it was still frozen in the middle. So I put it back in for another minute and a half. That meant it came out PIPING hot, and I struggled to eat it. I was almost the first… [Read More]

Heat Me, Eat Me: Doner Meat & Chips

The packaging-to-food ratio here is ridiculous – a great huge box that takes up most of your student freezer shelf. Inside the box is a tray, wrapped in plastic. Inside the tray, there are a handful of chips – also wrapped in plastic. It felt like the world’s worst pass-the-parcel game. The chips rest on… [Read More]

Tesco Hearty Food Co: 4 Bean & Cheese Melts

I saw these in the freezer section of my local Tesco and had to give them a try. 25-30 mins in the oven, and these little pale pillows of goodness fluff up into some awesome looking crispy pastries. The problem began when I cut into one. There’s an immense air packet inside each one; the… [Read More]

Island Delight Jamaican Brown Stew Lamb with Rice

8.5 mins in the microwave from frozen. Crap packaging, need to cut the film with a knife to get the contents out. Nice smell, quite sweet. “Spice Level: 3” (out of 3), according to the box. The result was disappointing, with only a touch of chilli that tastes vaguely Mexican. Has the richness of a… [Read More]

Hungry Joe’s Chicken Curry with Rice & Naan

I’ve not come across Seriously Hungry Joe’s before. With a name like that, it’s got an expectation to fulfil, and boy does it fill it. For a microwaveable meal, this is a big curry – there’s plenty of curry, plenty of rice, and a naan, which should leave you feeling pretty full. The downside is the… [Read More]

hEAT ‘EM UP Breakfast Wrap

This frozen snack is very minimal in its packaging. Are there two wraps? Does it come with cheese? What’s actually inside the wrap? Behold, fellow reader – Student Munch has done the work for you and answered life’s eternal questions. This is one wrap, cut in half. It’s presumably intended to be eaten in one… [Read More]

ASDA Slimzone Chicken Dinner

This frozen meal had been in my freezer a few weeks, and you know sometimes you just need a health food injection? I was craving some vegetables, and this is allegedly 2 of my 5 a day. It took quite a while in the microwave – about 10 minutes – but the instructions were simple… [Read More]

ASDA Slimzone BBQ Chicken with Sweet Potato & Butternut Crush

Published on June 3rd, 2018
4 out of 5

Takes bloody ages in the microwave (15 mins from frozen). Incredibly, 3 of your 5 a day. Decent amount of chicken. BBQ sauce not too sweet as feared, actually pretty good! Only 290 calories per pack. I don’t know how they’ve managed it! Sweet potato and butternut squash a bit tasteless.

ASDA Slimzone Sausage & Boston Bean Bake

2 out of 5

This from-frozen ready meal packs in a mighty 3 of your 5 a day of vegetables. I didn’t know that when I bought it, but I am very pleasantly surprised! What more nutrition could a hungry student need? Oh but there must be a downside! Are they vegan sausages or something? *checks the packet* 89% pork!!… [Read More]

Golden Dragon Pork Sui Mai

A bit of a faff to cook – no microwave option, and assumes you know how to steam things. I don’t. Still, I improvised, and the dumplings looked amazing being slowly sweated to a warm temperature. I left it for more than the instructions said, but still found my first mouthful quite cold so had… [Read More]
