Since I try to only eat animal products in moderation, I love that Snap Kitchen has all kinds of options for a plant-based, vegetarian, or vegan lifestyle.
For today’s review, I’m trying the Roasted Veggies with Cucumber Tahini, Lentil Bolognese, and Creamy Mushroom Fusilli. I’m also giving the Super Greens cold-pressed juice a try.
First up is the Roasted Veggies with Cucumber Tahini!
Ingredients: kale, red cabbage, butternut squash, zucchini, carrot, cucumber, tahini (ground sesame seed), lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, pumpkin seed, water, garlic, sesame oil, olive oil, sea salt, garlic powder, cumin, red chili pepper flake, ground black pepper
Option 1: Remove sauce. In oven safe dish covered with foil, 12-14 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees
Option 2: Loosen the lid, remove the sauce and label, and pop in the microwave for 1:10 to 1:20 min.
Okay, so if you know me you know that I absolutely LOVE butternut squash but I’m basically too lazy to prepare it myself. So when I can get a pre-made meal that includes butternut squash…well, I’m in!
First off, this meal just tastes healthy. It’s so full of the good stuff!
The veggies were really fresh (it’s prepared daily!) I did eat this meal first since Snap Kitchen recommends eating their salads within 2 days to ensure you’re eating it at its freshest. This isn’t exactly a salad, but I figured with all the veggies it would be best eaten right away!
Other meals have a 4-6 day shelf life so even if you opt for a weekly meal plan, you should still have super fresh meals to eat even at the end of the week!
The cucumber tahini was so good that I even saved the little bit I had left to eat with other veggies the next day! If you don’t know what tahini is, it’s made from sesame seeds which are basically ground into a paste (it’s commonly used as an ingredient in hummus). Tahini is full of healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals!
Overall, this was really good!
The only negative I found was that since it’s all veggies, I was hungry again a couple hours later. But that could easily be remedied with some yummy salmon or something on the side (did I mention Snap Kitchen also has a variety of extras that you can add on like salmon, chicken, and other meats and veggies?!)
Next up is the Lentil Bolognese!
Ingredients: marinara sauce (tomato, water, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, basil, sea salt, ground black pepper), cooked brown rice spaghetti (brown rice, rice bran, water), mushroom, lentil, olive oil, tomato paste (tomatoes, citric acid), garlic, red onion, sea salt, basil, ground black pepper, thyme, oregano
Option 1: In oven safe dish, 13-15 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees
Option 2: Loosen the lid and pop in the microwave for 1:10 to 1:20 min.
So if you don’t know what lentils are… they are legumes, similar to beans. They grow in little pods and have an earthy flavor. They’re a great source of plant-based fiber and protein!
And the spaghetti in this dish is actually made from brown rice! Unlike typical processed pasta which is stripped of most nutrients, brown rice is high in fiber and other vitamins and minerals! I was actually surprised because I can usually tell the difference between “processed” pasta and brown rice pasta but in this dish I couldn’t… maybe it’s because the sauce was so good!
It also has mushrooms (one of my favorites) in it!
So I would definitely recommend the Lentil Bolognese! They also have a spaghetti turkey bolognese if you wanted something with meat as well.
Next up is the Creamy Mushroom Fusilli!
Ingredients: brown rice fusilli (brown rice, rice bran, water), mushroom, almond milk (filtered water, almond, sea salt, locust bean gum, sunflower lecithin, gellan gum, natural flavor), spinach, green peas, sun-dried tomato, cashew, garlic, water, red onion, lemon juice, basil, sea salt, olive oil, extra virgin olive oil, thyme, ground black pepper, nutritional yeast (inactive dry yeast, niacin, pyridoxine hcl, riboflavin, thiamin hcl, folic acid, vitamin b12)
Option 1: In oven safe dish covered with foil, add 2 tsp of water and bake 15-17 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees
Option 2: Loosen the lid, remove label, and pop in the microwave for 1:40 to 1:50 min.
So I was super excited about this one because I absolutely love mushrooms… and when covered in a creamy sauce, even better!
It didn’t disappoint and this was definitely my favorite! Considering this dish is vegan (so no milk!), I was surprised at how creamy it was because that can sometimes be an issue in vegan dishes.
Other than that, it’s full of yummy veggies like spinach, green peas, and sun-dried tomatoes!
If you decide to test out Snap Kitchen for yourself, this one is a must try.
Last of all, I tried the Super Greens cold-pressed juice, which is listed as a best seller on their website!
Ingredients: cucumber, celery, kale, spinach, lemon
Sometimes cold-pressed juices can take a bit of getting used to, especially if they are all veggies. It’s definitely an acquired taste!
That being said, having had my share of cold-pressed green juice, I really enjoyed this one. The only ingredients are cucumber, celery, kale, spinach, and lemon – absolutely no preservatives or anything like that! Cold-pressed juice is a great option for breakfast or an afternoon pick me up.
So there you have it, my review of Snap Kitchen!
The convenience and quality make for a great experience and I would definitely try them again! I already have my eye on the Veggie Taco Hash…
