BOL Hot Meal Pots: Speedy Summer Dining

You may remember how delicious SEEN found BOL’s Salad Pots earlier in the year. We are certainly looking forward to trying their new Italian Tomato Courgetti and Moroccan Chicken Tagine. Ready in three minutes, these promise a wealth of wholesome and fresh ingredients; perfect for a quick lunch or supper when you’re on the go and have no time to cook something more elaborate from scratch. You’ll recall that SEEN was struck by how filling the Salad Jars were; we have no doubt that BOL will have pulled this feat off again.

The Italian Tomato Courgetti utilises the technique of spiralising (cutting courgette in a spiraliser to create healthy ‘noodles’ which require less cooking) to create a pasta-free pot complementing hearty arborio and red rice, broccoli, cannellini beans and basil pesto in an Italian-style sundried tomato sauce.  The Moroccan Chicken Tagine – high in protein and low in fat – combines marinated spiced chicken with giant cous cous, roasted butternut squash, turmeric chickpeas, dried apricots and a squeeze of lemon. SEEN feels it is this attention to flavourful detail that will make these Pots a big hit.

Developed with top chefs and nutritionist Ian Marber (AKA The Food Doctor), these two recipes join BOL’s extensive and imaginative range of nutritious and delicious meals, which launched in April 2015. These include Thai Coconut Curry, Sri Lankan Lentil Sambar, Mexican Sweet Potato Chilli, Singapore Vermicelli Noodles, Keralan Coconut Chicken and Jamaican Jerk Chicken. SEEN’s getting hungry just writing about them. Talking of hunger, BOL donated 100% of their year one profits to the global hunger crisis, if you need any further persuasion to give them a go. Priced very reasonably from £3 – 3.50, they’re available at Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose nationwide and online at Ocado.

Dinny Hall: A Shining Star

SEEN had the privilege recently, of hearing iconic jeweller Dinny Hall speak about her life and career in jewellery and design. She started off in the seventies when jewellery didn’t have the profile it has now, so in that sense she was very much a pioneer. She hung out with the cool musicians of the …
