Garnish with fresh vegetables

One of the simplest ways to elevate a ready meal is by adding fresh vegetables. They not only bring vibrant colours and a delightful texture but also increase the nutritional value of your dish. For instance, tossing a handful of fresh leafy greens into a pasta dish or adding chopped cherry tomatoes to a frozen pizza can boost the flavour while providing a burst of colour and a satisfying crunch. By transforming frozen meals with fresh, wholesome ingredients, you can enjoy nutritious, satisfying options that look and feel like a gourmet dish, packed with essential vitamins and minerals.

Infuse with aromatics

Aromatics such as garlic, onions, ginger, and herbs can work wonders in enhancing the taste of your ready meals. Before heating, sauté some chopped garlic or onions in oil until they’re golden brown and fragrant. Adding these to a frozen stir-fry or noodle dish instantly infuses it with depth and complexity. 

For a rich, simmered-for-hours taste, add a smashed stalk of lemongrass or a few torn curry leaves to a frozen curry. Dried herbs and spices like chilli flakes or sesame seeds are also wonderful additions, taking your frozen dishes to a new level of deliciousness.

Creative pairings

Sometimes, the key to elevating a frozen meal lies not just in what you add to it, but what you serve alongside it. Take a frozen Thai curry, for example. A fresh mango salad on the side can offer a sweet, tangy contrast that complements the rich, creamy curry. To make a quick mango salad, combine diced mango, red bell pepper, red onion, lime juice, and a handful of coriander for a vibrant, refreshing side dish.

Similarly, a crisp cucumber salad with a tangy dressing pairs perfectly with teriyaki chicken, providing a refreshing crunch that balances the savoury flavours of the dish. These subtle touches can make your meal feel more thoughtful and intentional, rather than just a quick fix.
