Our Higgidy experience
So I picked up the kids around 5:30 and we headed home for some dinner and to try out some Higgidy food.
The Higgidy package we opted for was the Vegan Friendly Roasted Sweet Potato and Red Onion Pastry Parcels and as soon as we looked at the box we could tell if was fun food.
It came housed in a lovely and bright purple box with a window that showed just the right amount of food to get our taste buds firing up.
Once opened we were impressed by the almost diamond like pastry treats and the kids just wanted to dive right in.
And there was nothing to stop them diving in. After all, Higgidy really is easy food as it is ready to go in the box. However, I do like to give the kids hot food and have crispy pastry so I threw them in the oven for ten minutes and steamed some veggies to go with them.
Once out they looked great and had taken on a lovely golden colour and I couldn’t wait to taste them.
So after keeping one back for Travelbetter Mum who was still at work, we grabbed some forks and dived into our dinner.
Our first taste of the Higgidy pastry parcels was a mixed affair. Firstly, the pastry was lovely and just melted in our mouths but in all honesty we found the filling to be a tiny bit bland on the first bite.
However, on the second bite we got the hit of the tomato coming through which bought the sweet potato to life a bit more.
Nevertheless, for me and Travelbetter boy is still needed something more so we added a side dish of sweet chilli sauce and this went with the Higgidy Pastry Parcels really well and pretty soon we had all finished our dinner.
When Travelbetter Mum arrived home later in the evening she ate her Higgidy pastry parcel and enjoyed every mouthful without the need for sweet chilli sauce, so I guess it all comes down to personal preference.
