Curry Coconut Tofu Flan

Serves 2  | Prep time 20 mins | Cook time 40 mins
Tofu can be really boring and uninspiring so we set about making it interesting and tasty in this wholemeal flan. My journey with pastry making has taken me to really appreciating wholemeal flour and how satisfying it is and of course normally better for you than white flour.  Although if not careful you can get into problems with dryness and cracking you should be fine with this recipe, I have learnt to never be afraid of adding more water but do it in very small amounts at a time!

We’re Cutting Down on Plastic

We’re Cutting Down on Plastic

Over the last month, we’ve been chatting to lots of different people about how we can make things better for you and all our customers. You won’t be surprised to know that everyone we spoke too told us that they love our sauces they also told us that the environment matters to them and they wanted us to ensure our packaging is as eco-friendly as possible. We have chosen a number of green packaging solutions that involve only sustainable, recycled and biodegradable materials. When we find a way to eliminate plastic completely from our packaging we’ll let you know

Meanwhile these are the changes we have in place;

paper-bubble-wrap-1.jpg

  • We are now using paper bubble wrap to safeguard the parcels we send out. Made from sustainable natural material. We chose Geami paper bubble wrap because it conforms to environmentally-friendly aims 
  • We are using paper infill where needed 
  • We are using paper sticky tape to secure our boxes

And some we are working on;

  • Sending out a courier pack still requires a plastic bag even though it is made using recycled materials
  • Fragile tape is still plastic however we only use a minimum amount where needed
  • We need to use plastic bubblewrap bags on some of our products to withstand the Amazon shipping process – we are minimising this as much as possible and only in addition to paper bubblewrap, cardboard boxes or paper in the majority of parcels

Let us know your thoughts and also if you have further solutions for us to consider please let us know.
