Top 5 Tags of April Merchant Gourmet Quinoa Pancakes

Every month we’ll be sharing our five favourite Instagram tags by YOU. Check back for monthly recipes using the whole Merchant Gourmet range by accounts you’ll want to be following.


1. ‘Clear out the fridge’ bowl by Bari The Dietitian

It’s a meal that we all pull together once a week – throwing the leftover vegetables in to a bowl, add some spices and hope for the best. In this case, it seems to have worked out very well! Bari uses our Smoky Spanish-Style Grains as the base with roasted spicy tofu, romaine lettuce, cucumber, avocado and strong roots spinach bites.

2. One-Pot Veggie Curry by Emily’s World

The nations favourite meal and better yet made in just one bowl! No washing up necessary. Just a few ingredients make up this easy weekday dinner, perfect for student living and packed full of goodness. Use our 100% Red & White Quinoa pouch as an easy accompaniment. Find the full recipe and method on Emily’s Instagram post.


3. Chicken & Lentil Traybake by Fast Food My Style

Traybakes make life that little bit easier – all you need to do is prep the ingredients, throw it all in a pan and be patient. For this recipe, Fast Food My Style has used our Simply Cooked Puy Lentils with sliced chicken breast, basmati rice, spinach and maraconi, spiced with ras-el-hanout. Easy-peasy!


4. Spring Time Salad by Hope Cooks

This colourful bowl features roasted spiced aubergine along with broccoli, red onion and sweet potato, before tossing in our Simply Cooked Puy Lentils and cherry tomatoes, and finishing off with poached eggs, avocado, mint, parsley, smoked paprika pesto, chilli flakes, lime juice and a generous dollop of yogurt. We would happily eat this every day of the week! Check out Hope’s page for all sorts of tasty creations – the inspiration is endless.
