Store Cupboard Ingredients

We have been thinking about how to maximise simple store cupboard ingredients to create nutritious, tasty food during this strange period of self isolation. Our staples include natural yogurt, chorizo and of course cheese! Read on to discover more.

sutton lucy cream (2)Natural yogurt
Natural yogurt is an extremely versatile ingredient and can be used in anything from breakfast oats to a marinade for chicken to spicy sriracha dressings and creamy potato salads. We stock the deliciously thick and creamy Sutton Lucy natural yogurt in both 500g and 140g pots depending on your needs as well as the low fat Langage Farm natural and Greek-style yogurts both available in 450g pots. Why not try this delicious Indian-style spiced chicken recipe or these quick and easy overnight oats for a tasty and nutritious breakfast alternative?

Chorizo
Chorizo is one of our favourite ingredients to cook with for it’s wonderful smoky chorizoflavour and the delicious richness it adds to any dish from stews to burgers and baked eggs to tacos. We stock both authentic Hot Chorizo rings finished with smoked paprika available in 200g rings and sliced retail packed chorizo available in 110g packs with an average of eight slices per pack. This recipe for Prawn and Chorizo Jambalaya is quick and easy to prepare and bursts with Cajun inspired flavours while this Butter Bean & Chorizo stew is warm and hearty and with only four ingredients it can be on the table in only 20 minutes!

Cheese
It will come as no surprise to learn that we absolutely love cheese, from creamy cricket-st-thomas-camembert-220gBrie to tangy Stilton, lemony goats cheese and local gems like the Garlic Yarg from Lynher Dairies and of course traditional farmhouse Cheddar. From classic ham and cheese toasties to luxurious baked Camembert and summery Greek salad with feta or grilled haloumi cheese is the ultimate ingredient to enrich and enliven multiple dishes. Why not try this 70’s take on a classic toastie with rich mature Cheddar, pickled pineapple and fiery sriracha or this baked Camembert with rosemary and garlic is a deliciously comforting treat.
