Suma Jumbo Oats

Jumbo oatsJumbo Oats is one of our more popular products in the shop so I’m delighted to offer them at 10% off for 48 hours from today. A big 1kg box normally costs £2.25; with 10% off, they come to just £2.02. We always have some in the house as they’re a good, quick option at all times of the day and so versatile. Here’s a couple of recipes, one savoury, one sweet.

Mince crumble
• 500g TVP (250g – £1.19 x2)
• 1 large onion, chopped
• 3 tbsp vegan Worcestershire sauce (Biona – 140ml – £2.99)
• 75g olive spread (500g – £1.95)
• 125g flour (Dove’s Farm GlutenFree – 1kg – £2.25)
• 75g regular or jumbo rolled oats
• 75g mature hard cheese e.g. Cheddar, grated
1. Preheat the oven to 200oC, gas mark 6.
2. Rehydrate the TVP. Fry the onion in a large saucepan and fry for 5 minutes. Add the Worcestershire sauce, TVP and seasoning and fry for a further 5 minutes, covered. Transfer to an ovenproof serving dish.
3. Rub the spread into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the oats and cheese, season to taste.
4. Sprinkle over the mince and bake for 20-25 minutes.
