At the moment I am staying with my friend, helping her to clear her house out in hope she'll be divorced soon and able to get another place! We take it in turns to cook as we both love to and me, as my mate is a Vegetarian I'm a dab hand at creating culinary masterpieces with a pack of meat free mince and the likes...and we love our food!
So whilst walking around Asda grabbing a few ingredients to make us a spaghetti bolognese for our tea that night I spotted this flatbread and it looked nice in the packet so I threw it in our trolley thinking it would make a very acceptable meal accompaniment indeed!
Large square see through bag with a block of green colour on the front of it and I'm told that it is 'Italian' Asda Sunblush Tomato Flatbread 'Part baked with garlic and parsley butter' and that it is 'Hand finished with sunblush tomato relish', and then I'm told that it contains no artificial colours, flavours or hydrogenated fat, that it is suitable for Vegetarians and is freezable and the best before date is clearly displayed on there too. Other information on the back of the packet includes ingredients and allergy advice, I'm told how to oven cook it and a full nutritional breakdown is listed as is storage advice, the weight is stated which in this case is 250g and contact details for Asda are given. Nice enough easy to open packet this is and it's all informative enough of course!
Large and round and creamy in colour with a visible ingrained splattering of the light red tomato paste mainly to the centre of it. It feels doughy before you put it in the oven and rather thick though it's easy enough to handle.
All you do to heat this through is to pop it in the oven as it is for 6-8 minutes if it's chilled or for 10-12 minutes if your heating it through from frozen.
When cooked it puffs up slightly, gives off a lovely bready aroma with a slight smell of tomatoes and garlic and all your left to do then of course is munch through the thing!
We loved this bread. Although it firmed up slightly when heated it kept it's bready moistness and it all was very well seasoned indeed. The tomato paste tasted of parley and very slightly of garlic but mainly tomatoey and the only moan I had was that the paste was mainly spread to the centre of the bread meaning the edges were slightly boring and plain.
A great quality and tasty bread great to be eaten with Italian sort of meals and we will buy this time and time again now due to it's all round wonderfulness!
