They say no one can cook a roast like mothers, but every mum deserves at least one Sunday off. This Mothering Sunday – 27 March 2022 – mums should take a break and let dads and children cook a meal. So whether you are celebrating your mum, step-mum, gran or any other motherly figure, it’s their time to put their feet up. Whether you are after easy recipes or simple meal ideas, London Mums have got it covered.
Tesco has good solutions (available to purchase in store and online) for the easy roast that even a food novice can’t ruin. London Mums have tried the Tesco Roast In Bag British Chicken Crown With Lemon Salt & Pepper (700g, £5.35) is the perfect centrepiece.
To compliment the centrepiece, there are plenty of easy cook veggies or Parmentier Potatoes (400g, £1.75).
If you want a side that you can simply pop in the oven, then these diced potatoes with garlic butter and rosemary are perfect. And why not try a twist on a classic Sunday meal with Mediterranean Style Roasting Vegetables (400g, £1.75). For added flair, make the meal extra special with standout side dishes such as the Tesco Finest Three Cheese & Chive Cauliflower Cheese (£2.60): Cauliflower florets in a three cheese and cream sauce topped with mature cheddar cheese and herb breadcrumb. The sauce is a blend of extra mature cheddar, red Leicester and pecorino cheese with a hint of mustard and chive to make a rich sauce.
We finished off the meal with a delicious dessert that mum (and kids alike) love, the classic Apple Crumble (500g, £2.90) containing chunky British Bramley apple pieces in a sauce with an oat crumble topping baked until golden.
Alternatively, you can find inspiration among these recipes selected by London Mums over the years:
