Tasty Bite Madras Lentils

Tasty Bite makes all natural, Indian & pan Asian food products - a lot of them vegetarian & gluten free. I had a box of Tasty Bite Madras Lentils laying around the house, and I decided to hook it up with some bow-tie pasta. The directions on the box were super-simple, if a bit messy. Simply open the pouch, pour out the contents into a microwaveable bowl (I ended up scooping out a lot of it with my fingers), and then microwaving for 90 seconds.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1/2 pack (142.5 grams)
Calories: 120
Total Fat: 5 grams, 8%
Saturated Fat: 3 grams, 15%
Sodium: 450 mg, 18%
Carbohydrates: 14 grams
Fiber: 5 grams, 20%
Sugar: 3 grams
Protein: 6 grams

The result looked like a hot mess! Brown & thick - I thought, there is no way this is going to be tasty. And then I had a bite. It was DELICIOUS! There is a slight spicy kick at the end of a bite, and the texture is not too mushy. There was a perfect harmony to the not-too-tomatoey suace, the seasonings & the beans. If you're ever thinking of making red beans & rice - well, thanks to Tasty Bite, half the work has already been done for you.

Each pouch of Tasty Bite Madras Lentils has 2 servings, each of which provides 120 calories, 5 grams of total fat, 3 grams of which is saturated (8% and 15% of the daily value), 450 mg of sodium (18% of the DV), 5 grams of fiber (20%), 3 grams of sugars & 6 grams of protein.

The ingredients are water, tomatoes, netils, red beans, onions, cream, salt, butter, sunflower oil, chilies, cumin. Tasty Bite Madras Lentils are vegetarian, gluten-free & Kosher. They can be purchased online at $2.99 for a 10 ounce box.

I LOVED this product. Although I mentioned this would be great for a red beans & rice dish, I used it as a meat substitute in spaghetti - I don't eat ground beef, and I didn't miss the meat at all. This is going to be a pantry staple - quick & easy to prepare, tasty, all natural ingredients list - you don't get much better than that.
