I have walked past Healthy Delites Souffles (now called Garden Delites), in the freezer aisle many times, but on a day that I was feeling like trying something new, I stopped and gave them the once over. As I tried to decide between the Broccoli, Spinach, Cauliflour, Zucchini, Butternut Squash and the Roasted Vegetable Souffle, which I ultimately chose, I scanned the nutrition facts and was pleasantly surprised (that's putting it mildly really), to see that each was a mere 120 calories each - with the exception of the 180 calorie Butternut Squash Souffle - for the entire 8 oz dish?! They are also fat free, gluten free, and kosher (okay so that does nothing for me, but hey, I have lots of Jewish friends who'd be quite interested)!
The 3 pictures you see are one of the box (what you see when you buy), one of the souffle when you remove it from the box before it is cooked, and one of a slice of the souffle after cooking. as you can see, at first sight, it's not pretty. The outside looked burnt and guess what ... it felt and tasted burnt, too. The inside looked beautiful, brightly colored and with plenty of easily recognizable vegetables. So why was there no individual texture or flavor from any of them? Instead, it was spongy and mushy, and I'm not sure how exactly to describe the flavor. It was not overly salty or spicy, and definitely had a souffle sort of taste - a little egg-y, a lot vegetable-y - pleasant but not particularly great. The texture, I think, really impacted my view on the taste, too, as it just plain took away from the enjoyment in general.
