  • Cooks from frozen in the microwave in minutes
  • It’s a complete meal for one, so perfect for lunch or a quick supper

Try It With:

  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds and freshly chopped coriander

Other meals under 400 calories:

  • All of our Pots for One have fewer than 400 calories, but we have other meals in this category. However, unlike the Pots, you will want to add your own veg and possibly some carbs like rice or potatoes, which may sneak them over the 400 mark (which shouldn’t be a problem for your main meal of the day). Explore the range here.

How We Make It At Our Kitchen

  • We mince Dingley Dell pork in our kitchen, and then mix it with ginger, lemongrass, coriander, chilli and a little fish sauce and we hand roll the mixture into meatballs.
  • To make the sauce we brown ginger and garlic in sesame oil, before adding tamari, chicken stock, fish sauce and honey. We cook this until thick and glossy.
  • We combine shredded cavolo nero with shredded carrot, and add this to the pot along with some brown rice.

Cooking Instructions

At our kitchen, we prepare food by hand using the same ingredients and techniques you would at home. We then freeze our meals at -35°C so it tastes freshly made when you cook it at home (no nasty additives or preservatives required). Most of our food can be heated from frozen (sometimes in minutes in your microwave). Check the instructions below.

These cooking instructions are only a guide. Your appliance may have a personality of its own (or a different power rating). Please adjust accordingly.
