Today's Frozen Meal: Kashi Veggie Chana Masala
Tuesday, 2010 January 19 - 1:14 pm
"Kashi 7 Whole Grains & Sesame Pilaf; Chickpeas, Red Peppers, Fire Roasted Eggplant, Carrots & Edamame; Zesty Garam Masala Sauce". Another Kashi vegan meal.

Box

Meal

This time I used the microwave at home, and it seemed to be cooked better than the Kashi Mayan thing, but it still had pockets where the sauce got dried out (note the pock-marked area in the middle). I may give the Mayan meal another try at some point and see if it's better when cooked correctly.

Taste: It's certainly not a traditional chana masala... it has eggplant and carrots and edamame, and no onions that I can discern. But it's fairly tasty, with lots of subtle flavorings. I swear I can even taste saffron, but that's probably an illusion. It's kind of insubstantial and a little dry, and I wish I could have a piece of naan or something to go with it. But all in all, not bad. Score: 3.5/5.0

Nutrition

Nutrition: Like the other Kashi meal, it has 9 grams of fat, but high fiber as well. Not so great on the nutrition numbers, and it's pushing it when it comes to sodium. Score: 2.0/3.0

Packaging: You have to peel the film and you have to stir halfway through, but it has the recycled cardboard packaging. Score: 2.0/2.0

Total Score: 7.5/10.0
