I have been meaning to write this blog post for so long, and finally, today is the day! What took me so long? I don’t know, but what I do know, is that Spice N Tice and their lovely spice mixes should be a store cupboard essential in any coeliac’s gluten free cupboard. Why you say?
Well, I’ll give you a little run down of what makes them so great…
All of their spice mixes are gluten free, and all of the recipes that come along with them include ingredients that have gluten free alternatives.
Take for instance, their gluten free Chicken Katsu Curry, the recipe calls for soy sauce and panko breadcrumbs, but I used gluten free alternatives. May I also add, sometimes you can ‘cheat’ and buy gluten free breaded chicken if you don’t have the time. You could also swap some of the ingredients for veggie options if you need.
Honestly Katsu Chicken Curry is my absolute weakness! 😍😍 I was so excited when I received the meal kit from @spicentice for it! It’s a lot of fun to make from scratch. The kit comes with a recipe card and shopping list, and is SO EASY to make with gluten free alternatives. I would even go so far to say that you could actually use tofu if you’re vegan/veggie. We had it last night for dinner and I’ve kept some of the leftover sauce in the freezer and when I want to ‘cheat’ the recipe I’ll just throw in gluten free breaded chicken fillets and microwave rice! Yum!
They bring you gluten free food that you’ve really missed! The first thing I tried from them was their Southern Style Chicken. And it was UH-MAZING. I had really missed KFC, but there was something great about making it yourself, knowing exactly what has gone into it, and the fact it’s baked, rather than fried. And it tasted just like the real thing
*GLUTEN FREE BAKED KFC* I tried the Southern Spiced Chicken meal kit from @spicentice – all gluten free ingredients, and it comes with a recipe card and shopping list, which you can EASILY convert to make gluten free! Here’s how easy it is to make it! (If you spray 1cal spray on top of the chicken strips before they go into the oven, they will be super crispy and golden 😍😍)
They’re also slimming world friendly, so you can stay on plan whilst indulging in your favourite foods. And that’s great, because a lot of people think gluten free food is healthy, when actually, the alternatives can be full of extra sugar and calories. The spice kits come with a handy shopping list, and a lot of the ingredients are veggies, and like I said before, you can use any low salt or healthier alternative for certain items.
Some of their spice mixes are things you would never really think of cooking! I recently tried the Tandori Salmon spice kit and the Jamaican Jerk Chicken one. I wouldn’t really have the inspiration, time, or willpower to make either of these before. But they are so simple to put together, and are great thrown together with some rice or salad.
How is everyone’s Bank Holiday going? It’s absolutely gorgeous here in Southport! I came back from my stroll along the marine lake and made Jamaican Jerk Chicken with the @spicentice kit! This can be barbecued as well as oven baked, which is how I did it. All you need to do is prep the ingredients for the marinade which are listed on the packet, pop them in your blender and then marinade the chicken for 30 mins and cook! It tasted absolutely gorgeous and was perfect for this weather! Get 20% off by using TCS20 at the checkout spicentice.com #ad
Some of them can be frozen, and you can batch cook with them.
So, I like to make sauces and freeze them. And that’s what I did with their Chicken Katsu Curry sauce. All I had to do was throw it in the microwave, get my gluten free breaded chicken breast and microwave rice, and I was good to go for a super quick dinner. I also froze the Chicken Curry and Thai Green Curry once I had made them. And wait for it… When I was making the Tandori Salmon, I also put the marinated salmon fillets in freezer bags. So when I want to make it, I can get the fillets out the night before, put them in the fridge and they will marinate as they defrost. Easy Peasy!
This afternoon I tried another @spicentice meal kit, this time the tandori salmon which was perfect to enjoy out in the sunshine! ☀️ I only used one of the salmon fillets that I marinated, but put the rest in individual freezer bags so I can defrost them and marinate them at the same time before grilling when I need them.
