Blend Bros Review and Recipe Ideas

I heard about Blend Bros a few weeks ago and decided to get in contact with them regarding trying out and reviewing their new product – a Savoury Blend high-protein sauce. In this post I’ll review the product and then move on to some easy high protein dinner recipe ideas featuring the Blend Bros sauces.

The Review

There are 5 flavours in total but I only tasted 3 of them; Mexican Pibil Stew, Thai Jungle Curry and Spanish Tomato and Chorizo.

I’ve linked the above flavours to their pages on the Blend Bros website, so you can read more about what they taste like. To be honest, there’s not much I can add there, they do what they say on the tin! The flavours are bang on. You do get a hint of artificial powdery-ness, which must come from the pea protein, but this is compensated by the sauces having such incredible flavours. The sachets are also suitable for vegetarians which is a big plus (not that I’m vegetarian but it’s nice for those who are).

You can buy them either as a 990g tin or as a 22g sachet. Per serving, you get a whopping 20g protein, which is amazing! If you’re not sure which flavour to go for, I’d recommend buying sachets first (they’re only £1.49 on the musclefood website).

I am yet to find a bodybuilder/ fitness blogger who doesn’t have a sweet tooth, which works well as most protein shakes are super sweet. However, this doesn’t mean that they’re to everyone’s liking, so this product is brilliant for those who don’t want to down a sweet protein shake everyday and an easy way to incorporate more protein into your meals.

Recipe Ideas

These recipes really are so easy! The first recipe takes a bit of time, though the second two take about 10 minutes, are packed with nutrition and are perfect for when you get in from work.

Like I said the sauces are vegetarian friendly so you could substitute the beef mince/ chicken/ sausage for Quorn if you are vegetarian.

1. Mexican Pibil Stew Chilli Con Carne

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 400g beef mince (I used lean beef mince from musclefood)
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • 2 carrots (diced)
  • 6 medium mushrooms (chopped)
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 drained can kidney beans
  • 1 serving Mexican Pibil Stew (22g mixed with 155ml water)

Method

1. Fry off the diced onions, carrots and mushrooms until soft

2. Add the mince and cook until brown

3. Add the kidney beans, chopped tomato and stew liquid and reduce down and you’re done!

I served it with rice, but you could serve it in a chopped pepper if you’re cutting down carbs.

2. Chicken Thai Jungle Curry

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 200g diced chicken breast
  • 50g runner beans
  • 1 big handful broccoli (and any other veggies you want to add – baby corn is a good one)
  • 1 serving Thai Jungle Curry (22g mixed with 200ml water)

Method

1. Fry off the chicken until cooked through

2. Add the veggies and the sauce and simmer down until it thickens

That’s it. This is such a simple recipe anyone can do it – but make sure the chicken is cooked all the way through. I served it with rice and asparagus (fried in a saucepan with balsamic and parmesan). I didn’t actually get to photograph this meal (I may have been hungry and eaten it straight away).

3. Spanish Tomato and Chorizo Sausage Stew

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 400g sausages (I used extra lean sausages from musclefood)
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • 6 mushrooms (chopped)
  • 1 serving Spanish Chorizo and Sausage (22g mixed with 155ml water)

Method

1. Cut up the sausages and fry off with the onion and mushrooms

2. Add the sauce and simmer down

I served this dish with mash and boiled broccoli.
