Product: Garden Lites Roasted Vegetable Soufflé – $3.49+
My on-a-whim, screw-the-food-budget, frozen food purchases are paying off in spades when it comes to these light, airy, tasty frozen soufflés from Garden Lites.
I mean, these were literally made for someone like me, to come home to and dig into after a stressful, busy day. And the best part is…they are delicious. This is the second of the series of six that I had housed in the confines of my freezer. Just snagging off the top, tonight’s delicacy was the Roasted Vegetable Soufflé, which is a delightful conglomeration of onion, carrots, broccoli, spinach, potato, red pepper and zucchini, folded into egg whites and delicately seasoned.
I was impressed with the first one, which is a good thing, since I bought every flavor without trying just one first. They are easy to warm up in the microwave and ready in less than five minutes. Gotta love that.
This one was definitely more colorful than the Cauliflower Soufflé, which definitely gave it a lot of appeal when it came to digging in. And, once again, the taste was spot on. Every vegetable that was part of the blend can be tasted within various bites. It isn’t overly seasoned, and despite that it is being nuked from frozen to soufflé puffy, it’s not watery or runny either. And that, my friends, is where the magic only begins. Once again, it tastes much like a pot pie would taste. And the flavors just melt on your tongue after each delicate forkful.
I really enjoyed the plethora of flavors that accompanied this one, and it was very visually appealing too. Garden Lites are definitely doing something right with these gluten-free and vegetarian mini-meals. I served mine (because there is only 1 per box, so my roommate and I split one) with a side of sweet potato fries and it was filling and delicious.
I can’t wait to pluck the next one out of the freezer and give it a shot. Because, while I don’t like to eat frozen meals, when the necessity for one calls, I like to make sure I’m getting something healthy and not laden down with chemicals and unrecognizable ingredients. These soufflés by Garden Lites have only ingredients (most of them natural – like vegetables and egg whites) that you can recognize off the bat, without having to Google what some chemical or additive might be.
And loving the delicious flavor that the Garden Lites Roasted Vegetable Soufflé added to my dinner plate.
I guess you could say I’m delighted!
