Product of the week: Dee's Eat Well Be Happy Vegetarian Range

Dee produces two innovative meat-free burgers - Dee's Omega Burgers and Dee's Spicy Bean Burgers - both of which are vegan, vegetarian and filled with many health benefits. The omega burger range blends two whole grains with two super-food seeds and fresh vegetables to create what Dee terms "a nutrition powerhouse" which is mild tasting with a natural flavour of toasted seeds.

When I tried the range, I dressed the burger with a dollop of rustic tomato relish, Ardsallagh goats cheese and a sprinkle of sea-salt just before the end of grilling leaving a delicious, healthy, great tasting meat-free burger. Another option in Dee's range is the Spicy Bean Burger which blends aduki beans and wholesome wholegrain together to create a burger filled with protein and fibre. Dee's top secret blend of herbs and spices make this a hit with those looking for something with more of a kick.

Last year, Dee expanded into the vegetarian 'ready meals' market with three new additions:

- Sweet Potato & Bean Chill.
- Butternut Squash Potato and Lentil.
- Moricoran Chickpea & Potato.

These are the perfect on-the-go meal for that busy office, or those evenings after the gym when you just want a healthy meal-to-go alternative. Dee's products are stocked in many stores across Ireland and the UK with a full list of outlets here.
