Nuveg's guilt-free fast food tastes like mom made it
Issued by DKC on behalf of Nuveg - Mar 30th 2016, 15:35
Tired, hungry and craving delicious home-cooked food but no time to slice, dice, steam, make or bake? Nuveg knows the feeling and has just expanded its range of appetising, nutritious dishes you can defrost, heat up, and bring to the table in minutes.
Created from scratch the old-fashioned way, they are conveniently styled for people always on the run, but who want to follow a balanced diet. They cut out wastage, save time, and let you keep the whole family happy, whatever their individual veggie preferences. In addition, they are so attractively priced, some individual portions in the range work out at less than the equivalent of a small chocolate bar.
The inventive Paarl-based company that cooks just like your mum and her mum before that, now offers delicious pumpkin fritters, marketed as Pampoenkoekies. Suitable for ovo-vegetarians, they are packaged in individual portions you can serve solo, with mains or even dress up with a drizzle of honey and ice cream and enjoy as dessert.
Nuveg has also just released a chicken mayo pack made with boneless, skinless chicken breasts. While the contents can play the starring role in a salad for slimmers, the chicken can also quite comfortably double-up as a dazzling sarmie-filler for school or office lunches. Developed by Nuveg CEO, Ivan Smook, the recipe has been specially formulated for freezing.
Smook, who started the organisation in 2012 with his wife and now supplies to leading supermarkets nationwide, explains: "Busy mums who like to prepare foods in advance for freezing have always been frustrated by the fact that mayonnaise doesn't stand up well to such treatment. But our dressing doesn't change in texture when you subject it to a temperature change. Defrost the chicken mayo and you'll find it tastes freshly made - smooth and creamy and very more-ish."
He says all the Nuveg dishes are based on his family's traditional South African recipes and use only the freshest ingredients. They are certified Halaal, contain no added MSG, powdered milk or cheese, and they have been modestly seasoned for people watching their salt or sugar intake. "We cook the healthy way but of course you can add more seasoning to suit your palate if you need to."
His dishes have developed such a following, he even sells in Dubai through Spinneys, a local supermarket chain.
There are 12 fritters in the pumpkin pack. They come individually portioned and packaged in two servings of six fritters each. The chicken mayo is presented as a four-in-one pack, as are all other Nuveg products. Individual portions are separately wrapped and sealed, so you can take out what you need, when you need it and keep the balance frozen. The recyclable, eco-friendly, and lightweight packs feature see-through individual serving bags for added convenience. Each serving is date-stamped and has a freezer life of 12 months.
The other Nuveg offerings in the range are creamed spinach and broccoli; potato bake and cheese; cauliflower in cheese sauce; butternut and cinnamon; diced sweet potato; and a variety pack containing four different vegetable offerings.
Stocked nationally by Checkers, Foodlovers Market, and selected Spar outlets, Nuveg pack prices start at around R26, rising to around R39.99 for the chicken mayo pack of four.

Ubuntu is one of those uniquely African concepts that, for many, define what it means to be South African. A beautiful word that exemplifies a philosophy of caring for the welfare of every individual in a community – that special acknowledgement that “I am because we are.” Ubuntu is a spirit that ignites people to work together, for the benefit of all.
