Strong Roots Frozen Food Products - Review

New to the market from Strong Roots are these lovelies and in case you haven't discovered them yet I'll tell you a bit about them.

A Range of Frozen Products from Strong Roots

The full range includes Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries, Kale & Quinoa Burgers, Garlic-Roasted Sweet Potato Cubes and these amazing Ripened Frozen Avocado Halves which I got particularly excited about;

Why? Because when I've fancied making guacamole but had every ingredient except avocado.

These Peruvian Avocado Halves (RRP £5.29) are perfectly ripened, pitted and freshly frozen. With a bag or two of these in the freezer, it means smoothies and guacamole can be made at any time along with anything else that requires avocado.

The Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries (RRP £2.99) are coated in a gluten-free rice flour which gives them a firm and crispy texture.  I say these are the best frozen sweet potato fries ever; oh yes, definitely sweet potato heaven!

Kale & Quinoa Burgers (RRP £2.99) are low in sugar and low saturated fat.  They have a crispy crunchy quinoa crust and contain nutritious mixed vegetables.

You could even serve them as a veggie burger between a bun and yes, they are big enough. I have to admit I didn't think I'd be over keen on these, but I was wrong!

I imagined they would taste bland but they really are very tasty and nicely seasoned; can't fault them at all.

The Garlic Roasted Sweet Potato Cubes (RRP £3.99) are a mix of sweet potato, garlic, onions with some added herbs. Lovely and crisp and I say perfectly seasoned; yep we love these.

More about Strong Roots:
Strong Roots freezes its vegetables from the moment they are picked to guarantee freshness and ensure nutrients are not lost in transportation.  They are already a huge success in Ireland.

Recognised for its deliciousness, Strong Roots was awarded a Great Taste award - the ‘Oscars’ of the food world - for its Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries.

The product was selected out of 10,000 judged in September 2016.

Where to Buy:
The Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries and Kale & Quinoa Burgers are both available at Waitrose and the whole range which also includes the Garlic Roasted Sweet Potato Cubes and Ripened Frozen Avocado Halves are available at Whole Foods. I've also seen the avocado halves in Iceland Foods too.

Disclosure: I was sent these products to try. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  I was not required to write anything positive.
