Cheesy Vegetable Parcels with Herby Chips & Honey Mustard Mayo

I love it when I receive a set of food items and am challenged to make something with them. Last week a very large box arrived filled with lots of goodies from brands under the Unilever umbrella.

There were lots of Knorr stock pots which are going to come in very handy in soups and stews over these winter months. As I'm a little bit addicted to wrapping food in filo pastry since I made turkey spring rolls, I decided to make some filo parcels to contain whatever it was that I was going to cook.  I decided in the end to try out one of the Colman's Season & Steam bags to cook some vegetables to go in the parcels, to be accompanied by home baked chips (very popular in this household) and a honey mustard mayo (not so polular). These quantities will feed a family of 4.

The herby chips have been crowned 'THE best chips you've ever made' by 13yr old Sam.
