Morrisons Fresh Ideas Chipotle Beef Chilli

30 July 2013

Tasty. Classic Mexican flavours. The torilla chips soften, which is a disappointment, but is to be expected. Lots of rice, not an awful lot of mince. I enjoyed this meal, but considering the meagre rations of meat and cheese and the abundance of rice, this isn’t worth the £2.50 I paid (and this was supposedly… [Read More]

Morrisons Fresh Ideas King Prawn Linguine

22 July 2013

The tomato-packed sauce ends up being watery, the king prawns tough and chewy and the basil undetectable. This is reasonable in terms of its taste, but unreasonable in terms of its cost. Not particularly filling, and far too expensive given the cost and quality of the ingredients. Not flavoursome enough nor exciting enough. A bit… [Read More]

Morrisons Tandoori Chicken & Pilau Rice

14 July 2013

Something unidentifiable in the rice, looks like a cross between chicken and a cardamom pod. Anyway, the sauce is quite tomatoey and separates into water and solids a little, which isn’t pleasant, but the flavours are nice- much like a tikka massala but not as creamy. The rice is tasty but on the rubbery side…. [Read More]

Morrisons Chicken in Black Bean Sauce with Egg Fried Rice

02 July 2013

The onions are very lightly cooked and crunchy. Generous quantity of chicken, though it is on the dry/chewy side. The rice is a bit of an extra faff around, requiring watering mid heating. The end result means the rice is not dry, though the lifeless pieces of egg and peas don’t add anything to the… [Read More]

Morrisons Chicken with Leeks, Bacon and Roast Potatoes

30 June 2013

Disappointed that there wasn’t a microwave option. But, I suppose it was all for the best- the resulting roast potatoes are crispy, flavoursome and complement the meal well. There are a lot of potatoes, more so than it first appears, so this is quite a filling meal. The chicken breast is a nice size and… [Read More]

Kerry Foods Made For You Piri Piri Chicken with Spicy Potato Wedges

22 June 2013

The piri piri sauce has a really nice flavour- a sort of sweet, Jamaican style spicy sauce that isn’t anywhere near as tomatoey as it appears. It’s similar to a BBQ sauce, but not as sweet or artificial tasting. Plenty of green chillies garnish the potato wedges and make this a hot and quite difficult… [Read More]

Morrisons Savers Sausage and Mash

16 June 2013

Wow, these sausages are bready. I dread to think how much meat is in them. The mash is sticky and flavourless. There is hardly any gravy, so this part was hard to review, but it has a nice onion flavour. Finally, the portion size is tiny- this is no more than a snack for adults,… [Read More]

Morrisons Chicken Biryani

14 June 2013

£3.29 is at the high end of the ready meals market. I love the presentation of the food and the clear use of fresh ingredients. The fact that this is one of your five a day comes as a pleasant surprise. The plentiful quantities of chicken is gorgeous- a nice tandoori flavour with a smoky,… [Read More]

Morrisons Singapore Chicken Noodles Fresh Ideas

12 June 2013

The whole dish is very dry. Thoughtless use of cabbage, which is tough and chewy and does not compliment the meal well. There is a fair quantity of chicken, and the rich, nutty sauce is tasty, even if it mostly evaporates during the cooking process. Expensive for what you get.

Morrisons Savers 2 Cheese Omelettes

30 May 2013

I just had to try this. A *microwavable* omelette, SURELY, can’t work. Sure, it’s a little rubbery, and smells a bit like a pancake. It’s watery in places. And at £1 for two, these are much more expensive than making one fresh for yourself. On the whole, however, I was pleasantly surprised. Coming from the… [Read More]
