Win a month’s supply of Innocent Veg Pots

Innocent veg pots have had a makeover, and taste better than ever. There are six delicious, healthy recipes, perfect for a quick lunch. Try Indian Madras, Thai Coconut Curry, Mexican Chipotle Chilli, Indian Lentil Sambar, Caribbean Jerk or our hearty guest recipe: the limited edition, British-inspired Pearl Barley & Veg.

Win a month's supply of Innocent Veg Pots

I recently tasted all the new flavours at a lunch at Fruit Towers and I can say that they all tasted really fresh and the flavours were suitably zingy. The Thai curry one is well balanced and spicy, the Madras one gives a really good curry hit and the British hot pot is both delicious and comforting.

I like that each pot is packed full of veg and it helps me up my vegetable intake without thinking of new recipes too. Despite being under 280 calories, the new innocent Thai veg pot is generously packed and bound to fill you up – great for those on the 5-2 diet. If you want a more substantial meal, add a piece of grilled fish or chicken. 

Each pot is packed with veg (at least 2 of your 5-a-day), is low in fat and comes in under 350 calories. And it takes less than 5 minutes to heat one up in the microwave or in a pot. We think you’ll agree that’s pretty tasty.
