MAGGI Just For 2 + Giveaway!
“As much as I LOVE being single and cooking for one, most recipes “serve 4”.. which is great, as when I’m too lazy to half the ingredients, I cook for 4 and have lots of leftovers to keep me well fed during the week. But sometimes, I get sick of eating the same dish 4 times in the same week. With the Maggi Just for 2 range, I don't have to worry about that! It's just enough for 2 meals.”

As much as I LOVE being single and cooking for one, most recipes “serve 4”.. which is great, as when I’m too lazy to half the ingredients, I cook for 4 and have lots of leftovers to keep me well fed during the week. But sometimes, I get sick of eating the same dish 4 times in the same week.
You may have the same problem if you are just cooking for two; whether it be you and your partner, you and your flatmate… you and your imaginary friend (not that there is anything wrong with that!)… or perhaps you have a small family, but need something simple to whip up at home for date night.
Whilst it may be easy to pick up something at the supermarket, most products are aimed at family sized portions.. which is great.. if you have that many mouths to feed. Maggi have come to the rescue of everyone else though. Their new Just For 2 range offers interesting meals to cook at home in 3 easy steps. The best bit is, you can pimp them up as much as you like, if you feel like going the extra mile. With more grown up flavours, no artificial colours, flavours or added MSG, at $1.99 per packet, you can eat something new every night of the week and not get bored!
MAGGI Recipe Bases are a smarter way to prepare a meal rather than spending hours preparing sauces/spices to add full flavour to a meal. I of course, had to give the meatball option a go first…. and I pimped it up adding my own touched. Sitting down to a bowl of this was really surprisingly good. It was full of flavour, and I didn’t think for a moment that I had assistance from a foil packet. Usually I’d have to cook these over a few hours to get rich flavour like this. They are a great base to help kick start a busy weeknight meal.
You can find this MAGGI Recipe Base in your local supermarket, although with other flavours:
Lemon & Thyme Chicken
- Sweet & Sticky Pork
Pimped up from the instructions on the packet
- 250g beef mince
- 1 rash of bacon, finely diced
- 1 handful of grated parmesan cheese, plus extra to serve
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1 onion, finely diced
- 400g tinned crushed tomatoes
- ¼ cup red wine
- 1 Maggi Just for 2 Spicy Tomato & Red Wine Meatballs sachet
- Torn basil leaves, to serve
- Combine beef mince, bacon, parmesan cheese, garlic, along with salt and pepper to season in a bowl. Roll beef mince mixture into 10 meatballs. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a medium frying pan, add meatballs, cook for 5 minutes or until browned, add onion, cook for a further 2 minutes or until softened.
- Add MAGGI Recipe Base, tinned tomatoes and red wine, cook for a further 10 minutes or until cooked through. Serve with spaghetti, top with parmesan cheese and basil.
