New range of 'Free From' food from Free & Easy

According to the latest statistics it estimated that 45% of UK adults suffer from food intolerances, while 2% have been diagnosed with a food allergy.

When you are affected by a food intolerance or dietary restriction, shopping for food can be a major challenge.  What can I eat? What's included in that packet? Dairy free? Gluten Free?  The considerations are large.

Free & Easy foods have been created by a group of specialist chefs to try and make shopping and cooking for a 'Free From' diet that bit easier.  Free & Easy food and drinks are also made without artificial additives and preservatives and are also suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians.

The range includes ready-to-eat sauces and gravies, curry pastes, organic soups, sauce mixes, ready meals and soft drinks.  We have been trying several products from the range, namely the Green Peppercorn & Mushroom Sauce, Tikka Curry Paste, Organic Green Pea Soup, Ginger & Ginseng drink and the Spanish Chickpea Casserole.

A had never tried a pea soup before and so was unsure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised at how flavoursome and refreshing it was as a lunchtime meal.  The chickpea casserole was a quick and easy meal to serve with rice and the Peppercorn & Mushroom sauce was really delicious served over Quorn fillets.

I am not a fan of ginger but Mr Bloggomy really enjoyed the Ginger & Ginseng drink.  

The Free & Easy range is available to buy from Sainsburys, Tesco, Waitrose, Morrisons and health food shops with prices starting at just £1.11.  It is also available to buy and more information on the range online
