I was provided sample of Kashi Steam Meals for Two to facilitate this review – all opinions are my own.
I’ve been choosing Kashi® products for years. In fact, I’ve been a fan since they first hit my supermarket shelves in the late 1980s. They were pioneers in the natural lifestyle section of the grocery stores long before eating healthier became more mainstream. I’ve always loved that Kashi works to provide minimally processed foods which are free from artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives.
I’ve loved their breakfast cereals and frozen waffles for years. But what I didn’t know is that you can find Kashi brands foods in the freezer section in the main dish aisle too! They have a full line of frozen foods under the Kashi Steam Meals for Two line. These frozen entrees use the power of microwave steam to cook the meals right in the bag.
Kashi Steam Meals for Two
To the lineup which already included Kashi Chicken and Chipotle BBQ, Italian Vegetable Medley Pasta, and others, the company has added two new varieties. The two vegetarian-friendly entrees are Mushroom and Asparagus Risotto and Three Cheese Ravioli.
Kashi Steam Meals for Two – Taste Test
So how do they taste? The Three Cheese Ravioli has a deep, dark sauce which tastes like it’s been simmered for hours on the stove. The cheese is light and the ravioli delicious (I did add shredded parmesan cheese out of habit – it didn’t need the additional cheese). Is it as good as homemade? Of course not, but for a quick and easy dinner for two it’s a good choice. The same for the Mushroom and Asparagus Risotto. The mushroom gives it a rich flavor and it’s certainly easier than making homemade risotto. The asparagus is surprisingly cooked just right and not overdone.
Kashi Steam Meals for Two are quick, easy, and convenient meals that are meant to be cooked in the microwave in their plastic bag. I’m not a fan of the microwave and especially cooking in plastic, so I’m thankful that Kashi offers alternative heating directions for those of us limiting microwave and plastic exposure. I cooked one on the stove but the second in the microwave as the package instructed. I didn’t notice any issues with then entrée cooked on the stove.
Kashi Steam Meals are available nationwide in the frozen aisle of grocery and natural food retailers for a suggested retail price of $6.95.
