Meals in a tub

This post is not focused on a recipe, but on a kitchen “tool” that found an important place in the everyday meals routine.

Several supermarkets here in the UK (but I’m pretty sure in other countries as well) offer a variety of prepared meals and soups. The occasional laziness helped me to try some of those (sorry, especially coming home late doesn’t really work for my fresh food commitment), and I found the containers used particularly helpful, not only for storing food at home, but also to carry it to the office.

As you can see from the picture, they come in different sizes, which is great since the meals of the day might come in different volume. They can be washed, are suitable for the microwave, and best of all, are airtight and leak-proof (given that you close the lid properly!).

Here you are a couple of examples of “meals in a tub” I’ve prepared lately. Which one should become an official post?

  1. The problem I’ve found worth soup tubs in particular is that they are 2 portions. But a tesco soup did inspire me to try Sri Lankan Chicken Soup which is now one of my favourites and fairly quick to make. We certainly keep a lot of takeaway tubs for freezing individual portions of evening meals, that makes a speedy microwave lunch for us. Link to soup recipe if you are interested:
