Food Lover’s Market and UberEATS now offer meal kits
Two companies have come together to change the way South Africans eat. From the start of October, Food Lover’s Market and UberEATS have partnered up to produce meal kits – comprising fresh ingredients and easy-to-follow recipes – that will be delivered at Uber speed.
Brian Coppin, CEO of Food Lover’s Market, says ‘this was really a no-brainer for us. Our Love Movement marketing campaign was designed to get South Africans back into the kitchen and cooking delicious food for their loved ones – despite the fast pace of everyday life. Partnering with UberEATS affords us the opportunity of offering our customers the convenience of ordering their meal kits on the go, without going into a store when they are time deficient.’
The partnership will not only redefine the future of food delivery, but also of home cooking, enabling anyone to become a pro chef at the tap of a button. Initially meal kits will only be available on request from the following Food Lover’s Market stores: Nicolway, Chilli on Top, (Johannesburg), Roeland Street and Tokai (Cape Town), with more stores to be added in the coming months.

thai green vegetable curry
Dressed with cashew nuts, this curry is lightly cooked in coconut milk and served on a bed of egg-free chow mein noodles.
2 x 500g stir fry vegetables
100g Thai green curry paste
400ml coconut milk
2 x2 50g chow mein noodles
100g cashew nuts
Drizzle a little olive oil into a wok or frying pan and over a fairly high heat, stir in the Thai green curry paste. Add the stir fry vegetables and cashew nuts and sauté for a few minutes. Pour in the coconut milk, reducing the heat to a simmer. Allow the contents of the pan to cook for 8-10 minutes until the vegetables are tender and the sauce has thickened.
While waiting for the sauce to thicken, cook the chow mein noodles according to the packet’s instructions and set aside.
Serve the Thai green curry with the cooked chow mein noodles immediately.
Tip: To take this dish to another level, lightly roast the cashew nuts before adding them to the dish and add a handful of fresh coriander to the sauce near the end of the cooking time.
