Colemans, the mustard people, recently launched an innovative Instant Gravy Paste range consisting of Beef, Chicken and Onion flavours. I was sent a few tubes to try out.
Colman’s Instant Gravy Paste comes in a new tube paste format which has been designed to be both quick and easy to use, allowing customers to make homemade gravy in an instant.
Having used Gravy Powders in the past it was an opportunity for me to try something new. The Toddster is a real gravy man and there is nothing he likes more with his spuds and meat pies than a tasty gravy.
We had some today with plain old Bangers and Mash, the Toddster's favourite meal and I have to say I was very impressed with the ease of use. I just squirted two teaspoons of the paste into a measuring jub and then added boiling water, which I vigourously whisked in using my trusty little whisk. There was no messy powder, or bits that clung in the corners of the jug, and within 30 seconds or so I had a delicious thick and glossy gravy that went very well with our dinner.
I say . . . move over Bisto, there's a new Kid in town and he's out to impress! Coleman's Instant Gravy Paste comes in three delicious flavours, Beef, Chicken and Onion. Beef and chicken are made with real meat juices, and the onion flavour uses real roasted onions.
Just perfect to serve with a multitude of dishes . . . here's a few suggestions to get your tastebuds tingling!
Roast Chicken Pie
Brussel Sprouts and Mushroom Ragout with Herby Dumplings
Slow Roasted Lamb Shoulder
Roast Pork with Crispy Cracklin
Maybe a Pork and Roots Tray Bake with an Apple Relish.
Perfectly Cooked Roast Beef.

Lemon and Garlic Roast Chicken
Pot Roasted Chicken
The Whole Christmas Feast (or even Thanksgiving!)
Hope this wets your whistle for some good eats and that you will give the Coleman's Gravy Paste a try. It is nice to make gravy from scratch of course, and nothing tastes better than homemade, but if you are looking for a delicious and quick, almost instant low fat and natural alternative, Coleman's Gravy Paste is just the ticket!
Many thanks to the people at Coleman's and Anya for having sent me some to try. (Psst! It also uses up next to no room in the kitchen cupboard, unlike those bulky jars and boxes. That's a real bonus for me and my tiddly kitchen!)
