Well, you probably all get it by now, I really love real ingredients. So when I was sent these spices from Red Market to try out, I was excited. (I received these spices for free, to test, but as usual you are getting my honest opinion). I love creating recipes with new things and these spices ticked all the boxes for me. I also love supporting local Mums, and Elizabeth from Red Market is just that!
Red Market is a range of hand blended spice blends and meal bases for people who like interesting flavours and would like a quick and easy way to create great meals for friends and family. The idea began to evolve when Elizabeth’s son was diagnosed with food allergies. Out of necessity, she began to recreate their favourite family meals using all natural ingredients. She needed to know exactly what was in their food and where it came from. Red Market’s savoury spice blends are all natural, contain no artificial preservatives or fillers. They are also gluten free. Real spices and herbs are hand-blended (by Elizabeth!) to her own recipes for you to use at home. You just have to add a few fresh ingredients to make a delicious meal.
The spice blends are so reasonable- and she ships Australia wide. I really have found nothing to fault with the three I received. There are lots of vaieties, I’ve got the greek meatballs, mild mexican and the butter chicken. I think you’d be silly not to give them a go, especially if you are usually reaching for a packet mix (because these have no nasties I’m happy to recommend them). I’m looking forward to coming up with lots of ideas for them.
The spice blend I’ve used in this recipe is the Butter Chicken spice ($6!). I can’t follow someone else’s recipe (every spice blend comes with fabulous recipe cards) so I decided to get cheeky with it and make some ultra quick and easy tasty baked samosas…using my favourite pastry at the moment- wonton wrappers! Now, I don’t know if Miss 4 likes these, she was at preschool the day we made them. But I can say that Master 2 ate 5. So that probably indicated that they are a winner.
These are baked not fried and contain lots of veggies, so a winner in my books. They are also freezer friendly and are an easy snack to whip out of the freezer when you need something quick for lunch. These baked wonton samosas are going to be my go-to to start any Indian meal we have from now on.
