Waitrose Vegetarian Red Pepper Grills review

Waitrose vegetarian red pepper grillsI was whizzing around Waitrose looking for special offers when I spotted these Frozen vegetarians red pepper grills on a 2 for £3 deal. I hadn’t seen these before and they looked like something my family might enjoy.

They’re described as ‘succulent & smoky – red peppers and sweetcorn seasoned with smoked paprika’.

There are four grills per box and each grill has 163 calories.

After a long day I couldn’t be bothered with cooking so it was freezer time. These red pepper grills couldn’t be easier to prepare.
  1. Turn on the oven
  2. Open the box
  3. Put grills on a tray
  4. Put into the oven
  5. Take out of the oven after 22-24 minutes. Done!

I decided to serve these with a simple salad as I had a couple of green leaf salad bags in the fridge. I added cucumber, raddish, spring onion and cherry tomatoes and made a quick dressing of olive oil and apple cider vinegar and a bit of sweet chilli sauce.

They looked so appetising once cooked and gave off a lovely smoky flavour. They didn’t fall apart when I was dishing them up but I cut them in half to serve.

They’re a good size and quite filling. My husband and daughter really liked them. I liked the smoky flavour but still found them a little bit bland. I’d happily buy them again though and found them very good value – especially as they were on offer.

They’re low in saturated fat and low in sugar.

Available in the freezer section of Waitrose stores.
