Amy’s Kitchen is a great company. Amy’s makes natural & organic foods and has a large line of gluten-free items. According to their website, there are 77 gluten-free products in their line now. I received a few $1 off coupons to try out some of their products last week. I chose the Rice Macaroni & Cheese (for Jon) and the Teriyaki Bowl.
First up, Rice Macaroni & Cheese.
This dish reminds me of the Stouffer’s Macaroni & Cheese that I used to eat as a kid and before I went gluten-free. Jon loves this. We don’t do a lot of frozen pre-made meals, but this is great to have on hand for those nights or days when things are super busy. I would absolutely buy this again. You can find Amy’s Meals in most grocery stores across the US, which also makes this a good choice if you are traveling – all you need is a microwave, which you can find in most convenience stores and even hotels if you ask the front desk. I have also made this at home and put in a thermos for Jon to take to school.
Not only is the Teriyaki Bowl gluten-free, but dairy-free as well! This is also one of very few Amy’s Meals without onions. I can assure you that I would eat most of those Mexican bowls & dishes if they were free of onions – they are right up my alley. This dish was a fantastic combination of flavors. I wasn’t expecting it to taste as good as it did. I did beef it up with about a half cup of garbanzo beans & a salad, because 290 calories for dinner for me is just not enough. I liked this so much that when I saw they were on sale at Giant Eagle this week (2 for $6), I grabbed another one!
Amy’s is now offering many of the dishes in a “lower sodium” version to help keep the dishes as healthy as possible. Make sure to check out Amy’s Soups, too, we love the Chunky Tomato Bisque in our house. Perfect with a grilled cheese sammie!
