Simply Grains (Artisan Salads)

Simply Grains is a Artisan Salad company which are made with Nutritious whole grains and the freshest ingredients sourced within the UK, and are suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians. 

The Salads are handmade using various types of Grains e.g.- Quinoa, Spelt, Barley, with fresh, local produce. 

These Grains have a variety of benefits...
These are just a few health benefits about the wonderful Grains....

Spelt- Spelt is high in Protein which is vital on a Vegan diet. It is a good source of B complex Vitamins and is a good Carbohydrate.

Quinoa- Quinoa should be a main Food in all Vegan diets, as it contains Iron, Protein, Vitamin E, Fibre, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and MORE!! I also really love the taste of Quinoa. It has a sort of Nutty flavour and soft texture which is lovely added into Salads...

Barley- Barley is a really good versatile Grain, and it is a good source of Molybdenum, Manganese, Dietary Fiber, Selenium,copper, Chromium, Phosphorus,Niacin, Magnesium and Vitamin B1. 


Simply Grains has just been started up by a Woman named Tri Bannister in London. She started up Simply grains as she wanted to introduce healthy foods that can be enjoyed & taste delicious too!!! 

Simply Grains has been to quite a few Food Festivals including the BBC Good Food show,  Duck pond Market and State of Independence market. 


Tri was ever so lovely and kindly sent over 2 of their Salads for me to try.

I got my hands on the Seasonal Barley Salad and the Tabbouleh Salad and i was so excited to taste them, as i love my Salads and Grains! 
I really enjoyed the Seasonal Barley Salad. It contains Black Eye beans, juicy Cherry Tomatoes, Fresh Basil, Onions and a freshly made Pomegranate Vinaigrette. As this is a Barley Salad, this will not be suitable for people who suffer with a Barley allergy. 
All of the flavours go really nicely with each other, and i like how the Tomatoes and Onion chunks soak up the Vinaigrette. 

The Tabbouleh Salad is made with Quinoa, fresh Mint, Onion, Tomato, Parsley, with a zesty freshly squeezed Lemon Juice Vinaigrette. 
The cool Quinoa really sets off the Mint flavour, as it soaks up juices. The Cucumber chunks add texture. As Quinoa isn't a grain, its a Pseudocereal seed , many use it as a Gluten Substitute  Making this Salad GLUTEN-FREE!

These Salads require no warming up, just pop them in the fridge and tuck in whenever your peckish or eat on the go! 

I also really like the classy, minimalist packaging, i find it really appealing!
