Lean Cuisine describes their Asian-Style Pot Stickers meal as, "chicken and vegetable dumplings with rice in an Asian-style dipping sauce." I first reviewed these back in January 2009, but I remember it being one of my favorite Lean Cuisine meals, so I felt an update was in order, with a picture of the actual product and updating the nutrition facts.
The other day I spotted Lean Cuisine Salad Additions and curiosity gripped me tight. I try to eat a salad at least once a day, but I'm not very creative, so I was excited to see what the Southwest-Style Chicken Salad Additions would be like.
Healthy Choice Italian Sausage Pasta Bake is described as having Italian sausage and freshly made Rotini pasta in a hearty tomato marinara sauce topped with mozzarella cheese. The meal when cooked is not far-off the photo on the packaging, but it's basically mini-meatballs with pasta & marinara sauce.
Alfredo sauce usually isn't that healthy since it's usually made with cream, but Lean Cuisine found a way to incorporate just enough in their Lean Cuisine Shrimp Alfredo dish, without breaking the calorie bank.
I raided the frozen food aisle of the supermarket a few weeks ago, and came away with a lot of meals to review. I was on a bit of a "eat more fish" kick, so I decided that one of the meals had to be the Lean Cuisine Tortilla Crusted Fish. The picture on the box made it look very appealing, and who wouldn't like something that's described as, tortilla crusted fish with rice, poblano peppers & corn in a sour cream sauce?!
We have a LOT of Lean Cuisine Reviews - you would think I've tried them all by now, but LC is always putting out new products, and trying different things. Recently, I came across Lean Cuisine Veggie Cuisine products - a new line of meatless offerings from the company. I scooped up the Indian-Style Masala, which is described as, "gardein chick'n strips, in a creamy tomato curry sauce with cauliflower, carrots, peas and whole grain brown rice."
What had me oohing and ahhing about this meal was the curry sauce. It is lightly spicy and so flavorful that nothing entered my mouth without first being dipped in it. The cauliflower florets were bigger than I've seen in many frozen meals, and since I'm not a cauliflower fan, I wasn't too thrilled (but I'm happy they didn't skimp on the vegetables), and anything dipped in that curry sauce became mighty tasty. The "fake chicken" - or rather, Gardein chick'n didn't exactly taste like chicken - in fact, it didn't have much flavor on it's own - but ... you should know what's coming next ... anything dipped in the curry sauce (say it with me) = tasty! Color me impressed Lean Cuisine because you did pretty darn good with this Indian-Style Masala.
