I have been shopping on Ocado for a few years and feel I'm in a real rut with the weekly shop.
Can anyone recommend their fave items on there or meal ideas?

I love the sourdough bread from Gail's bakery, the houmous from The Dip Society, pretty much all the things from Great Food, Jolly Hog sausages....
What sorts of things do you buy at the moment? That will help with knowing what to suggest

OK have a look at the Picard frozen stuff - is French and delicious and I love the cod with sauce vierge for a healthy late night microwave supper when I get home late from work.

Also The Collective yoghurts - the big pots of strawberry and mascarpone are going down a bomb in our house at the moment.

And the Primrose's Kitchen muesli is delicious.

Also like the frozen gyoza - great when you get home from the pub starving - and the frozen DIY pizzas, can't remember their names but you have to make them yourself and they're great.

In terms of meals they do really good pies - called something like Thomson - which my lot love, and also I love the Waitrose two for £5 sausages, which I serve with chips and veg when I'm in a rush or I make into a lentil and sausage and thyme stew if I've got more time.

Frozen soffritto! Part of the Waitrose cooks essentials. Honestly, I'm not one for frozen veg apart from petit pois but I use this all the time. Great for stews, soups and adding to cottage pie, bolognese etc. Love it!

Ocado Gold fish roast is lush, salmon, monkfish and smoked haddock with a champagne sauce, really meaty fish with herbs and yummy sauce.
Waitrose fishcakes are really good.
The Waitrose frozen seabass are reliable and very easy can fry up straight from frozen.
Waitrose cook in the bag free range chicken is very moist and succulent.
Also like the Waitrose mini quiches you can often get on offer and are great for lunches with a salad or lentils. They come in quiche Lorraine and a cheese and onion one.

Bruffin you remind me that we always get the frozen croissants and baguettes from there . The Picard range is great - love the frozen paella. There are so many good things that come and go. The stews and salads are good for lunches. I am liking Bol salads at the moment.

I use Ocado all the time and have never seen most of these things, I definitely need to get out of my "just clicking the same things every time" rut. Off to investigate.....

The salted caramel chocolate wave is to die for

That Picard range is the biz. The lemon meringue is fab for a quick pud at a BBQ and it's the best I've ever had anywhere.

I also like the Greek topped humous and the halloumi with mint, both Ocado own.

Ooh I'm going to check these all out, thanks. I use Waitrose online most of the time (free delivery) but occasionally use Ocado because they are only shop that stocks a particular item I buy. Because I menu plan and shop off a list it all get s very boring and obviously I never see these other items. Perhaps I should expand my online shopping horizons !

Currently lots of Charlie Bighams!
As I work 12 hour days (as does DP) and I've 15 weeks pregnant.

Feeling pretty sick of them tbh so really need some new easy meals x

I have no idea how I've managed to shop at Ocado for so many years without having bought soffritto! Amazing. Always think their frozen veg is lacking but now I know it's just under fancy names.

Recently discovered Chocolatey Praline Entrements. INCREDIBLE! Dh and I can eat it in one sitting 😮

DandelionAndBedrock Fri 01-Sep-17 09:32:28

I came on to say the Picard stuff! That alone makes me want to move to a house with a massive chest freezer.

Also the Crosta e Mollica pizza bases (or any of that range).

The Sticky toffee pudding is to die for! Can't remember the make but it's

LaurieFairyCake Fri 01-Sep-17 09:47:21

This smoothie stuff is lovely - I used apple juice but it's sweet enough with just water. It's mango/spinach/kale in that order.

It doesn't taste at all 'kaley' as it's only 7% kale.
