We love the flavour of fresh pasta, but not all of us have the time – or patience – to prepare it ourselves at home. Barilla Tagliatelle all’uovo, $3.50, is made with eggs so it has a similar taste and texture to fresh pasta, without all the hassle. Simply serve with your favourite pasta sauce. Find it at supermarkets.
Make no-fuss curries, pies and casseroles at home with S&B Golden Curry Sauce Mix, $4.95, available in mild, medium-hot and hot. So quick and easy to prepare, the sauce is also great simply served with potatoes or rice to create a delicious side dish. Find it at supermarkets. Visit oriental.com.au.
Pauls Zymil lactose-free milks are the perfect alternative for those people who can’t stomach lactose and are looking for a product with the same taste and goodness as regular milk. Available in fresh and long-life milk, custard, cream and natural yoghurt, find the range at supermarkets.
The slice is right
Enjoy thick café-style bread at home with the new Helga’s Thick Cut Loaf, $3.50, in traditional white and mixed grain. The extra-thick cut means you can pile more onto your sandwich creations while maintaining your preferred bread to topping ratio. We like it 1:1. Find them at Coles and Woolworths.
Pot of gold
Go back to basics with new pot-set yoghurts from Farmhouse Gold, in plain, peach, boysenberry, strawberry and vanilla. Made from Aussie milk, pressed fruit and yoghurt cultures, they’re also free from gluten, gelatine and preservatives. Available in two sizes from $2.30, find them at supermarkets.
ABC Sweet Soy Sauce Kecap Manis, $4.50 for 620ml, is the number-one selling Indonesian sweet soy sauce in Australia – and for good reason. This syrupy, aromatic sauce adds an authentic Indonesian flavour to a variety of dishes. For more information, visit asianinspirations.com.au/exploreindonesia.
The sweetest thing
A baking staple in Aussie pantries for generations, CSR has a brand-new look. Its Dark Brown Sugar, $4.89, higher in molasses than brown sugar, adds a rich flavour and colour to both sweet and savoury dishes, such as chocolate cakes and barbecue sauce. Get it from supermarkets.
Rise and shine
If you’re guilty of skipping breakfast, keep the new Chia Pod Oats and Quinoa in cranberry and coconut, $3.00, in your fridge. Eaten cold or heated in the microwave, the healthy pods are made from plant-based ingredients and have 4 grams of fibre per serve. Find them at Woolworths.
Finding lunchbox snacks the kids will eat is hard enough, let alone making sure they are school-safe, too. The new Enjoy Life range, from $6, includes chewy bars and crunchy cookies, and is free from seven of the most common food allergens, including peanuts and egg. Pick them up from Woolworths.
