It’s a great alternative for veggies and will become a sure-fire favourite all round.

Cheese Straws with a SOR-dip

When we think of Christmas, our minds immediately wander to those post-dinner cheeseboards. And if you’ve got crackers to go with them, don’t get us started – it’s just too good! 

Well, this recipe combines the best of both worlds with these cheese straws that pack a cheesy crunch. What’s more, these straws are so dainty to eat if you’re dying to impress this year – no mess, no stress! We find these are best dipped in Original SORSO for a tasty tang.

Flavours with Fizz

What should you serve with Christmas Drinks? We’ve put together a list of some of our favourite festive drinks and their most flavoursome pairings. 

What drinks do you usually serve at a Christmas Party? There’s such an array of options, and everyone’s got a favourite – I’m impartial to a light and citrusy glass of Bucks Fizz to start off the day! No matter your preference, we have got some drink suggestions for your Christmas party and the perfect meal to pair them with.

From snowballs to spiced rum, there’s a tipple here for everyone. Stick around to see what takes your fancy.

Mulled Wine 

Mulled or spiced wine has got to be our first thought when it comes to Christmas drinks. It reminds us of meandering through Christmas markets, steam drifting up out of our paper cups and a hint of frost in the air. 

Did you know you can easily make you own mulled wine at home? Check out this fantastic recipe to serve at your Christmas drinks party from Fork in the Kitchen. 

What should I serve with mulled wine?

We recommend pairing your mulled wine with a dish that’s rich in umami flavour. It often pairs well with rich cheeses (perfect for your Christmas cheese board)!

If you’re looking for something a little different this year, why not make a SOR-Tart Wreath! A wreath on your door, that’s old news… but a reef on the dinner table – now that’s exciting! This rosemary tomato wreath is absolutely packed full of deep flavour. Tomatoes are one of the best plant-based sources of umami flavour, whilst the soft delicious crust will melt in your mouth. What’s more, adding Rosemary to this tart will create an absolutely dreamy scent wafting through your house for added Christmas cheer!

If you really feel like shaking things up this year, why not try drizzling your tart with a melted cheese of your choice… 

Spiced Rum

This one’s a heavier drink, most suitable for later in the evening! The smoked and spicy flavour of Rum is best consumed straight or on the rocks after a hefty Christmas dinner. Most spiced rum varieties will have distinct flavours such as cinnamon or vanilla. These are so perfect for winding down next to the Christmas tree. 

What should I serve with Spiced Rum?

If you’re looking for an accompaniment to your spiced rum, we recommend matching it with a similarly deep flavour. Our aromatic Dark Chocolate and Tomato Soup is just the ticket!

Bucks Fizz 

A traditional element of Christmas Day breakfast, Bucks Fizz has been enjoyed for just under 100 years! Invented as an excuse to start drinking early, it’s certainly livened many a Christmas morning. What’s more? It’s so simple to make – simply mix 1- part orange juice to 2-parts champagne. The best bit about this one is that kids will love a mocktail Bucks Fizz too! Replace champagne for a clear lemonade for a kid-friendly pick-me-up.

Of course, you’ll certainly need a Christmas breakfast to serve this tipple with…

What should I serve with Bucks Fizz?

Love them or hate them, devouring some brussels sprouts is a classic Christmas custom. Our question to you – have you ever tried them with pancakes!?

Bear with us, because this one is good! Try brussels sprouts pancakes for a perfect savoury balance that will complement your flute of fizz! Top them with crème fraiche, dijon mustard and Original SORSO Sauce for a flavour burst that will get your Christmas off to an invigorating start! Kids and adults will love them all the same.

The best recipe for a Christmas Day Breakfast

Eggnog 

Eggnog is typically known as a dessert drink because of its rich, creamy and delicious flavours. However, because it’s so sweet, balancing its flavours with an array of savoury tastes is the best way forward. Eggnog pairs nicely with foods that have divergent flavours. For this one, finding a meal that excites every aspect of the palate is a good idea. 

What should I serve with Eggnog?

Our Chilli Pesto Tartlets have a salty, savoury and spicy taste that will go down just a treat with a creamy glass of eggnog. 

Try them here!

Festive Cocktails

What would Christmas be without the classic Snowball cocktail! The creamy advocate drink is not completely dissimilar to eggnog, and has similar rich, thick sweetness. That’s why it provides the perfect touch to a savoury meal.

What should I serve with Cocktails?

Tried and tested, classic roasties, crispy with a soft centre will go down an absolute treat. Drizzled with SORSO and a sparkling cocktail to wash them down, who could ask for more?

Try our SOR-Roasted potatoes for the most delectable treat.

Winter Comforts

As the temperature cools and summer nights grow dimmer, one place we often find brightens our evenings is in the basking light of a piping hot oven!

It is so important to nourish your body well during the winter months, with filling and nutritious meals. It is so tempting to snuggle up round the TV and throw a ready meal in the microwave, but soon after you’ve unwrapped that cellophane and gobbled it down, you might often find yourself feeling lethargic and bloated.

Our quick and easy Autumn Comfort dishes are a healthier, happier alternative. No more grease, no more preservatives and no more regret. Just healthy wholesome meals for all the family. When we think of cosy nights, we immediately think stews! Much-loved and welcomingly warm, stews provide a lovely, filling end to a long day. Today we are sharing with you two hearty stews, and a third recipe which is admittedly on the crunchier side of things!

Our first recipe includes a pantry staple

BLACK BEAN STEW

Incredibly versatile and high in fibre, black beans are a perfect earthy addition to this meal.
It also is a wonderful option for increasing your levels of Vitamin D as over 40% of us in the UK are Vitamin D deficient over the winter months.
Our personal favourite thing about this recipe is its suitably autumnal colouring! The natural pigment of tomatoes and egg yolk reflect the beautifully colourful leaves falling from trees in the breeze outside.

MOROCCAN STEW WITH HARISSA

As if our stews aren’t warming enough, we’re believe you can’t go wrong with an added pinch of spice.
Harissa is a hot chilli pepper paste guaranteed to add some oomph to your meal.
Try a taste of Moroccan cuisine with this soothing and simmering stew.

NACHOS

Had enough of stews? Let us divert your rumbling stomach to our crunchy, crispy nachos!

These can be topped with quorn, cheese and cherry tomatoes. Finish off with a drizzle of SORSO and some lime to serve!

An Intro to Flavoured Sauces: SORSO

A Treat for the Taste Buds and a Boost

for your Body.

At SORSO Sauce we create fresh tomato flavoured sauces composed of 100% plant-based ingredients. Our flavoured sauces are packaged into pouches. These can be stored in your freezer for up to three months!

And there’s more… SORSO sauces are completely free from nasties.

You might be wondering, what exactly do we mean by nasties? To put it simply, we’re talking about preservatives. For food to stay fresh on the supermarket food shelf, it needs added ingredients which reduce spoilage.

We thought about this and decided against it !

At SORSO we strive to produce fabulously fresh sauces. Our sauces pack no preservatives while maintaining tremendous taste and texture while kept refrigerated!

Time to talk a few of the flavours launched !

Now you know that SORSO is good for you, let’s get down to our four fantastic flavours…

Classic Original
A much-loved classic. The classic SORSO variety is perfect for those looking for rich tomato-ey goodness. So tasty!

Lemon and Thyme
Hints of lemon injects a Mediterranean flair into your favourite dish. Thyme adds a slight warmth and lovely peppery undertones.

Chilli
A sharper option! Chilli SORSO packs a medium heat. It is perfect for curries, pasta dishes, or spicy wraps.

Extra Chilli
Extra Chilli SORSO is great for warmer dishes to add some kick! This one’s for those who can handle a bit of heat.

As you may be able to tell from our flavour variety, here at SORSO we don’t like to tie you down. Our sauce is incredibly versatile. Plus, our juicy tomato sauces can be ready in minutes!

Easily prepared in the microwave or on the hob, a pack of SORSO to hand halves the time it takes to create fresh meals for all the family.
