Sainsbury’s extends Taste the Difference ready meals range
Sainsbury’s is extending its Taste the Difference range by launching ten brand new chilled, gourmet ready meals including flavours such as Chicken Satay with Udon Noodles and Prawn Linguine Primavera. Each meal provides you with one of your five a day, and can be ready to eat in minutes – perfect if you’re looking for a nutritious and delicious evening meal when you’re short of time.
Customers can choose from six microwaveable dishes or four oven ready meals that contain absolutely no high salt, sugar or saturated fat content, and which are all made using premium ingredients and the very best cooking methods - just like all Taste the Difference products.
Inspired by recipes from around the globe - from the authentic, fresh flavours of the Med to the hot and spicy tastes of Asia – the premium ready meals offer something for everyone including:
Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Mediterranean Chicken with Volanti Pasta – marinated British chicken thigh served with volanti pasta, a chorizo and sundried tomato sauce, roasted vegetables and spinach
Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Sweet Chilli & Tamarind Prawn with Rice– King prawns on a bed of shredded carrots, red onion, pak choi, edaname beans and peppers in a sweet & sour tamarind sauce with coconut and coriander lemongrass infused basmati rice
Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Teriyaki Glazed Beef – Teriyaki glazed marinated British beef, served with sticky rice, teriyaki sauce, Swiss chard and green bean and red pepper mix
Clever food swaps have been made by using ingredients like single cream instead of double to help maintain healthy nutritional levels, whilst using foods that pack a flavour punch such as chicken thigh over breast, so there’s no compromise on taste.
Craig Breadmore, Product Technologist at Sainsbury’s says: “We know our customers are sometimes short on time to prepare a meal from scratch but still want to eat something nutritious that also tastes great. Our new Taste the Difference products are the perfect solution as it offers speedily prepared ready meals that use high quality ingredients to create authentic, healthy recipes that are full of flavour”.
