Summer is fast approaching meaning that we are going to start wanting to spend time outside with the beaming sunshine and lovely views. This also means that we are going to be having more picnics. Down below are my top 3 favourite picnic foods!
1. Quorn Picnic Eggs:
As a vegetarian I absolutely love these Quorn-based picnic eggs. A real staple, classic picnic item. Although the size is slightly smaller than the original meat-based scotch eggs, these are delicious! You usually get 9 in a packet and they range from about £1, depending on which supermarket you shop at. These are a real quality form of protein, which are naturally low in fat as well, meaning you can enjoy them without feeling guilty.
2. Pasta Salad:
With picnics, I always find cool and light food to be the best option, especially when the weather is so nice. Pasta salads are super easy to make but if you aren’t feeling up to making them, any supermarket will provide a ready-made pasta salad for you. I, myself think it’s pretty simple to make one though! My favourite way is by using a light, creamy sauce for my cooked pasta and this can also serve as the dressing for all the salad bits! Once you put everything together, you’ve got yourself a lovely pasta salad for everyone to enjoy!
3. Higgidy Spinach, Feta & Roasted Pepper Quiche:
My final addition to the list is probably my favourite quiche. I love quiches, you can have them hot or cold which is super helpful if you’re in a rush or if you don’t feel like making one from scratch. This quiche has such a different and vibrant flavour, I’m sure that everyone will enjoy it! This item retails for about £3.50, depending on where you shop. It’s a handy food to have for a picnic as it can be eaten at any temperature and is sure to fill everyone’s appetite.
