Nomad Pasta

Nomad Health – Supergrain Quinoa Penne pasta £4.50

Supplier: The vision of making Artisan and gluten free pasta was brought to life by gardeners, and soulmates, Marianna and Keith. Both are passionate about food and healthy living, so they started to make pasta out of ancient grains and seeds. They are full of nutrition, have low sugar levels (great for diabetics) and are bursting with protein and fibre!

Product: This Artisan pasta is made from a naturally gluten free ancient grain with a great pasta taste. We tried it alongside some ordinary wheat pasta & the texture and flavour were great! This makes it perfect for any traditional (or modern!) pasta dish, as unlike some other gluten free pasta it keeps its texture perfectly even after cooking. It does however,  only need a quick 3-4 minutes to cook! It is easily digestible and rich in magnesium, calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, zinc and B vitamins. Don’t forget to try the Summery Green Pasta we made with this pasta ! Recipe is here… 

 

Good Carma – Garlic Flavour Fusion Cheesy Sprinkles £4.95

Supplier: This small innovative company is run by Charlotte Bates in the heart of Carmarthenshire. Her cheese-style products are enjoyed by vegans and non-vegans alike. Her aim is to bring healthy products (hence the name ‘Good Carma’) to the market, without sacrificing flavour.

Product: This Flavour Fusion has all the taste and richness of grated parmesan. The garlic in particular is delicious on pasta, but can be used on salads or the top of stews. It has added B12 and is made from wholefoods. We added this to the Summery Green Pasta Recipe on The Vegan Larder & it was DELICIOUS!

Good Carma Cheesy Sprinkles

 

Brave Food – Sea Salt Roasted Peas £1.19

Supplier: Seb and Amber wanted to make a change – which they’ve achieved by making nutritious food out of real ingredients, grown locally and sustainably. They have developed flavours of roasted split peas which are nutrient dense, contain B-vitamins and are low calorie. The best bit – they taste amazing and have 3 incredible flavours to choose from.

Product: This classic, clean, simple and delicious flavour will probably be eaten in minutes. But it will keep you going for much much longer! These British-grown peas are roasted and tossed with a bit of sea-salt. Perfect for when a snack attack strikes.

NIx & Kix Peach and Vanilla

Nix and Kix – Peach and Vanilla  £1.20

Supplier: Nix and Kix have created awesome soft drinks with no added sugar or chemicals, but still deliver the kick that inspires that ‘wow’ moment. And how do they it? Well, they add chili, which has metabolism boosting and energy releasing properties. Even better though: it also increases endorphin levels and provides a natural, happy feeling. It doesn’t get much better than this.

Product: All their flavours are divine, and perfect for cocktails, mocktails, on ice, or just straight out the can. As it’s summer, we’ve chosen peach and vanilla. Light and refreshing, it’s perfectly paired with your summer barbecue or terrace drinks. We loved this with crushed raspberries and a splash of vodka for an easy summer cocktail! 

Edible Ornamentals – Sweet Chilli Sauce £4.00

Supplier: A chilli farm in Bedford, this is best place to get your chilli products that are UK grown, Edible Ornamentals love all things chilli and are passionate about using interesting and unusual varieties..

Product: Sweet chilli sauce is super versatile, and has a brilliant balance of sweetness and heat. This product can be used as a dip, on salad, in stir fry, or as a dip for summer rolls. We’ll be using it all summer long!  Don’t forget to check out our Vietnamese Roll Recipe out where we used this delicious dip!
