Women’s Health magazine
Co-op Vegan Cauliflower and Coconut Meal Pot
“Think mixed grains with cauliflower, coconut milk, broccoli, lentils, red pepper and roasted sweet potato, this lightly spiced veg pot is warming and filling thanks to the many vegetables and legumes it’s full of. Even better, it’ll be ready in the microwave in 3.5 minutes. See, vegan ready meals aren’t so hard to find after all.”
Co-op Cacao, Orange and Cashew Bars
£1.99 for 3 x 35g
“Just the thing for a post-workout snack or mid-afternoon energy slump. They’re only 138 cals each, taste delicious and are suitable for vegans.”
Co-op Irresistible London Dry Gin
“It contains a blend of fragrant botanicals, including cardamom and coriander, which add a subtle spicy twist. It’s perfect to warm you up on a gloomy winter evening. Happy Ginuary!”
BBC Good Food (Lulu Grimes’ favourite products)
Co-op Irresistible Chai Fairtrade Tea Bags
“I like the warming flavour of chai in recipes as well as in a drink. Try making a strong cup using a tea bag, and then mixing it with icing sugar to decorate cakes or biscuits.”
The Observer magazine
Co-op Irresistible Chateauneuf du-Pape (France 2015)
“My current favourite own-label red wine, one that is admittedly priced at a level where most people would be hoping for something with more of an illustrious name than a supermarket’s to the fore, is the Co-op’s fabulously suave, spicy, textured Chateauneuf red, which is, in fact, made by the Perrin family behind the illustrious Chateau de Beaucastel.”
