Winner

Amy's Kitchen

Amy's Kitchen
GF Chinese Noodles & Veggies

‘This has a WOW factor! Visually perfect with lots of flavour - just delish and hard to believe it’s vegan.' 'Good, crunchy, green, fresh veg.' 'Amazing texture to the noodles given they’re frozen.' 'Easy to prepare, tasty & convenient.'

Highly commended

Amy’s Kitchen GF Manhattan Veggie Burger

'I wasn’t expecting to like this…. But it smells and tastes ‘meaty’. Lovely to find an egg free veggie burger.' ‘Tastes quite chargrilled!' 'Holds together well. A little thin but visually appealing with a surprisingly soft texture.'

Christine's Puddings Taste of the Med Savoury Tart

‘Well-textured pastry for a tart that looks very pretty.' 'Herby, cheddary, sweet pepper tart with chunks of veg. Everything you could ask of a quiche.'

Quinola Mothergrain Express Quinoa Spicy Mexican

‘Lovely aroma, especially for an express option!' 'Beautifully spiced and a perfect mix of quinoa, beans, sweetcorn and red peppers.' 'Very handy product indeed, and nutritious as well.' 'Free from lots of allergens, thank you!'

Senza GF Chestnut Mushroom & Blue Cheese Quiche

‘Beautiful appearance. Lovely aroma, nice pastry, perfect mushroom & cheese flavour - difficult to fault!' 'Strong blue cheese taste, very slightly soggy pastry bottom but an excellent product with great flavour & texture.'

Smart Eats & Treats Vegan Red Onion & Courgette Quiche

‘There is so much thought gone into this – I can’t fault it.' 'Egg free quiche GOOD!' 'Completely chuffed to find a quiche that ticks all the allergy boxes. Maybe add a little tomato to help combat dryness?'

Tesco Free From Mature Cheddar Cheese & Onion Crispbakes

'Indulgent, fluffy-textured carb product at an affordable price.' ‘Very appealing: visually crisp coating, a good cheddar flavour potato cake, perhaps a little too floury, but really good.'

 

Commended

Clive's Pies GF Mushroom & Leek Pie

‘Looks pale but holds shape well, chunky filling, tasty and not too salty.' 'Very nice crunchy pastry and tasty filling.'
