4.2g of fat?

3 stars

I have a question. Where does the 4.2g of fat come from?

No chopping or waste

5 stars

Great for bolognaise and stews and casseroles

Prefer the previous frozen smaller chunks

3 stars

Good for spaghetti Bolognese


1 stars

Far too heavy on the onions

Great as a soup mix or as a base for stew.

5 stars

Love it - I make a minestrone or plain veggie soup with it, gives a good base and you can add whatever you like. I use marigold veggie powder to make a stock - you can use chicken soup - and add some pasta - other veggies. Add a tin of tomatoes too. I do this in the morning on a slow light for an hour. You can put it in your processor and make a thick soup, but I like a clearer soup. Couple of pints of stock and I have enough for a two or three of meals. Ideal with a crusty buttered tiger roll !!!

not as good as previous frozen product

3 stars

As in previous comments bring back Frozen Classic veg base mix great for bulking out and adding extra flavour to mince for shepherds pie spag bol etc

Tiny desu

1 stars

Bring back the veg base mix with the veg cut into tiny pieces, they were so small you could throw a spoonful of them into a pot of noodles and they'd defrost and cook in seconds, veg in bigger chunks needs longer cooking. You think I have time for that???

Ok but prefer the frozen pack

3 stars

This is ok, but prefer the frozen 1 of these that Tesco used to sell. It is much better. The veg is a lot smaller, so when trying to get veg into fussy eaters they couldn't really see it. This one is more chunky, also it's a smaller bag. The frozen 1 was 600g & I just used what I needed. This is 400g & doesn't separate easy when frozen. Have to defrost it 1st!! Please bring back the frozen pack

Very useful ingredient

5 stars

Very useful when making a base for stew. It added great flavour to a lovely meal.
