I was recently contacted by Bristol brand Pieminister to ask if I would like to try their latest creation, their new Pieminister Pie Pots, in return for a Bristol Mum review.
As a lover of good, hearty food, I immediately agreed!
The idea behind the new Pieminister Pie Pots is that each pot provides a hot, nutritious meal, with great flavour and healthy ingredients after just 4 minutes in the microwave.
The new pie pots come in four different flavours:
Meany Bean – Mixed bean, butternut squash and chill with a spicy potato top
Cheeky Chick – Creamy chicken, white wine and leek with a herby potato top
Matador – Beef steak and chorizo with a Spanish spiced potato top
Moo & Brew – Beef steak and craft ale with a herby potato top
The time between dropping my daughter off at preschool and picking her up a few hours later is precious as this is the only real quality time I have to work on my websites, such as the lovely one which you are currently reading 🙂
Because this time is so precious, the pie pots were great as enabled me to eat a good, healthy lunch (which included veggies too) after only a few minutes in the microwave.
One pie pot gives one perfect size portion for one adult. This is the Cheeky Chick pie pot, for example…
I also tried the pie pots on my kids too one evening. I almost always cook a healthy meal from scratch for my kids every evening but on one occasion last week, my husband was away, the kids were playing up, I was tired and I wanted to keep things as simple as possible.
I therefore thought that this would be an ideal time to give them a pie pot for their tea and see what they thought about it.
I served the kids the Matador pie pot. One pie pot was more than enough for both kids and they enjoyed it.
I do like Pieminister pie pots. I would have to choose the Cheeky Chick and the Moo and Brew as my personal favourites. They are perfectly sized portions, provide a healthy, hot and nutritious meal with great flavours and only take a few minutes minutes to microwave.
