So I was in the mood for something a little different tonight and, frankly, a little processed. Thankfully I had this green box in the freezer, as I’d gotten several of these on sale a while back. Perfect.
Here’s the nutritional breakdown:
- 340 calories
- 14 grams protein
- 6 grams of fat, .5 g saturated fat
- 56 grams of carbs (yikes!)
- 550 grams of sodium (double yikes!)
So the calorie count on this little diddy isn’t too bad. 340 calories is a diet meal. But goodness the carbs and the sodium are both insane. This definitely falls into the “treat” category.
On the upside, it’s vegan and as vegans know, Morninstar usually isn’t.
It tastes really good actually. Processed and just a hair bit bland, exactly as a TV dinner should be. The texture of the “chik’n” is nice. It’s made from that nice mix of tofu and wheat gluten that has become so popular because it’s so tasty. The rice has got that weird frozen rice texture, but the sauce and veggies are great.
Also in the plus column is that I can cook it in my oven, as we haven’t had a microwave in years.
Overall – something that we’ll keep in the back of the fridge, especially when I can get it on sale!
