Review - Tasty Bite

Vegetarian and kosher food. Not really something that would've appealed to me a couple of years ago. My willingness to actually try foods before i decide i don't like them has opened a whole new world to me. I use to think vegetarian food was just greens and veggies, not the case for Tasty Bite.

Thanks to Doug, over at Tasty Bite, i was sent a couple of their products to review. I received the Madras Lentils, Channa Masala, Garlic Brown Rice and Tandori Rice. I don't have much any experience with Indian food, so I was ecstatic to find Tasty Bite's Recipe Page. I wish i could have taken pictures of the dishes i made, but they were literally gone in a blink of an eye.

  • Madras Lentils (Lentils, red beans & spices in a creamy tomato sauce). For this, I came across the Madras Lentils Dip recipe. It looked tasty and I had every ingredient it called for so I decided on it. It took less than 10min. to finish the dip. We served it with corn chips and a fresh side of sour cream. I was expecting for it to be too spicy, as Indian food is known for their spicy food. The spice was just right, the taste was great! Its reminiscent of chilli and actually has a meaty taste, but it is ALL vegetarian. This was, by far, my favorite.
  • Channa Masala (Chickpeas slow-simmered with onions, tomatoes & spices). I tasted this one, but did not finish the whole entree. I was expecting something spicier. It was very mild and the texture of the chickpeas just didn't go with the rest. The onion was overpowering and too sweet.
  • Tandoori Rice (Long grain rice flavored with rich aromatic Indian spices). I made some delicious grilled Lime Chicken & Veggie kabobs to pair with the Tandoori rice. Both complimented each other very well. The rice smelled delicious and wasn't oily like many ready-to-eat rices.
  • Garlic Brown Rice (Nutty brown rice with roasted garlic corn and vegetables). Unfortunately i didn't have the opportunity to try this, it mysteriously "disappeared".
Tasty Bite offers Entrees, Rices, Simmer Sauces and Meal Inspirations. They are easy and fast to make. They take about 90sec. to heat up. This is GREAT for college students, or anyone, who doesn't have a lot of time to cook, but still wants to eat good healthy food. They are tasty, vegetarian, kosher, and msg- and glutton-free.

Overall, Tasty Bite sure does make some tasty bites! I enjoyed the Madras Lentils very much! This was a new experience, as I've never tried any sort of Indian cuisine before. Thank you, Tasty Bite, for allowing me to venture and try some Indian cuisine! :)
