What better way to kick the 10th Annual Sim’s Life Christmas Gift Guide off than with a giveaway to win a fabulous Spice Pots Festive Food Survival Kit. If you are a fan of Indian cuisine, you are going to love this kit!
I’ve heard of Spice Pots before, but as I’m lazy and tend to order in curries as opposed to cooking them, I wasn’t fully aware of what they offer.
The Spice Pots mission is all about making cooking easier with their unique blends of spices and I am totally onboard with that! With less free time than ever before now that Liv is at secondary school, cooking large meals can feel like a chore. With delicious spice combinations and lots of yummy recipe inspiration, this Spice Pots feature couldn’t have come at a better time! Read on to find out more about the Festive Food Survival Kit and how you can win one!
Spice Pots Festive Food Survival Kit
The Festive Food Survival Kit (priced at £14.95 here) is a must have for those who always find themselves with plenty of leftovers at Christmas but want break for the norm with new dishes. Whilst it is always appreciated when someone else cooks your curry, cooking your own from scratch with a range of spices gives you the opportunity to tailor it to your own tastes and heat level. Who needs a takeaway, when you can have a mouthwatering fakeaway!
The kit contains 4 spice tins covering:
Korma – Mild but there is a hint of warmth from the chilli.
Bhuna – Medium in heat and very flavorsome.
Goan – (Hot!) Spicy and complex! If you want to try this but don’t like fiery food, I find adding a dash of double cream helps make the heat more palatable.
Mixed Sweet Spice – a mixed sweet spice for adding to cakes, bakes, puddings and anything else that needs a sweeter taste! This would be great mixed in with cinnamon puff pastry swirls for a lovely Christmas treat!
The 40g tins are seriously cute and contain 8 servings per pot. The kit averages out at making at least 8 family meals. With an 18 month shelf life from production date, the tins will last ages, so don’t worry about having to use them quickly! The flavour will still be there, even after the 18 months, it just will not be as strong.
All the spices are GM free, suitable for vegans, gluten free and do not contain nuts (further allergen information can be viewed here), though the Bhuna spice does contain mustard seeds.
The included booklet features 8 delicious recipe ideas to try with the spices. All recipes are Christmas inspired and range from Christmas Spiced Nuts, Mini Coronation Chicken Pies, right through to Lamb Bhuna. There really are some fabulous ideas, for new meals you may not have considered making before, in order to ensure no food wastage this Christmas!
Everything about Spice Pots is eco friendly, from the use of cardboard packaging and no plastic in sight, to the steel pots which can be recycled. Though the pots are dinky and adorable and with refills available on the site, the pots can be used time after time to brighten up your kitchen. The refills start from £2.95 each and even come in compostable bags with compostable labels to dispose of when no longer needed!
Whether you are looking for festive food inspiration for yourself, as a gift idea of if you just love making a good curry, there are plenty of gift sets, spices, recipes books and inspiration to check out over on the Spice Kits site.
