The freezer sections of many grocery stores are filled with pre-made meals designed to get food on your table, quick and easy. Unfortunately, quick and easy does not always mean the meal is healthy and delicious too. Yet, that is exactly what Organic Bistro’s Frozen Meals aim to be.
Far from a standard frozen dinner, Organic Bistro’s single-serving meals and bowls are made using high quality organic and natural ingredients that are free of artificial flavors and unaltered by processing. In addition to high quality ingredients each bistro inspired dish contains a healthy and nutritious balance of lean protein, whole grains, vegetables and healthy fats. Most importantly, all of Organic Bistro’s meals and bowls are gluten-free. Despite all of this, I had doubts about how good this type of frozen dinner could really be. But I had read several positives reviews and figured it was worth a try.
Though, Organic Bistro makes several varieties of frozen meals, all of which sounded amazing, only the Savory Turkey meal was available at my local grocery store. The entire boxed meal included a turkey breast in rosemary and mushroom sauce, organic green beans and carrots, and a serving of whole grain lentil-quinoa pilaf. This dish sounded as delicious as the image on the box looked, but I wondered how good could it really taste? I was very eager to find out.
Straight out of the box the meal does not look any more impressive than any other frozen dinner. It cooks quickly in the microwave and is ready to eat in minutes, so I did not have to wait long to see if it could hold up to the hype. After one bite of the turkey smothered in its flavorful mushroom sauce, I could confirm that it had earned its praise. Though I cannot say it tasted as fabulous as a freshly made meal, it was surprisingly delicious. The Turkey was moist and packed with flavor and the vegetables were equally as delicious. As for the lentil-quinoa pilaf, though it was a tad bland it was also extremely hardy and worked perfectly with the others flavors in the meal. Over all, I was highly impressed by the end of the meal. I plan to try more varieties of Organic Bistro’s Meals in the near future.
