I love sauces. As far as I’m concerned, when it comes to food, the wetter the better. Who can be bothered to make a sauce from scratch all the time though? That’s when packet sauces come in handy – just buy a few when you’re at the supermarket, bung them in the cupboard, then they’re there when you need them.
Tonight, I used a packet of Knorr’s Luxurious Chanterelle Mushroom Sauce from their new Gourmet range to liven up some Quorn Fillets. The sauce is easy to make – measure out 300ml of milk, empty the sachet into a pan, blend with a little milk, then add the rest of the milk to the pan, bring to boil and simmer for three minutes.
I served it with mashed potatoes (grown in the garden) and steamed leeks and green beans from the local farm shop, which made it a healthy, but cheap, meal – under a fiver for the two of us.
