Top Spiced Grains & Chestnuts Recipes

Here at Merchant Gourmet, we’re on a mission to help everyone discover plant-based eating 365 days of the year and we know that the winter months can be tough! That’s why we created this special limited edition Spiced Grains & Chestnut pouch; a delicious mix of cooked pearl barley and wild rice, with chestnuts and cranberries, flavoured with warming herbs & spices. Full of plant powered goodness, it’s also low in fat and a great source of fibre.

This Spiced Grains & Chestnut pouch combines all your favourite festive flavours and is a great way to reduce your meat intake over the Winter period. You can pair this fragrant, hearty pouch with roasted vegetables for a light lunchtime meal or bake into a comforting veggie wellington for the perfect winter warmer.

Pick up a pouch in Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Morrison’s or Ocado and get creative with our recipe collection below…
