Hot Winter Menu at Vital Ingredient

Where do you go when you need a heartwarming kinda lunch? Soups just don't cut it for me because I get hungry far too soon and I need a good amount of stodge to satisfy my belly in the winter.

Enter chilli con carne and jacket potatoes, 2 of my favourite things ever and yes it is food-coma inducing! Vital Ingredient's winter menu offer just what I wanted and being the piggy that I am, I not only polished off the whole thing, I also had sides with it too...

Vital Ingredients* is probably the only place where I enjoy a super healthy lunch as they perform massively on the taste and flavour scale. I first tried it out at the end of summer last year and couldn't believe how much I enjoyed their salad, and you can trust me when I say I'm not really a salad kinda girl. Bring me the burgers and pizzas please!

The hot food menu sounds so delicious!

The queue at lunchtime is a pretty mean one but also a sign of a good meal.

Jacket with chilli con carne, parmesan shavings and coriander. The serving is massively generous and really hit the spot. It's the cleanest and healthiest tasty chilli I've ever eaten, my chilli con carnes are usually brimming with oil and spice! The jacket was cooked perfectly, light and fluffy with a good bite to the skin.

It all got washed down with a lightly sparkling elderflower drink which tasted quite pure and not sugary at all.

Lunch time dessert of chopped banana with custard and milk chocolate chips. This was soooo yummy and such a delight, I can't believe how this relatively healthy dessert is so tasty! I need to recreate this at home.
