|Almost-instant, gluten-free meals in the age of DIY|
The nice folks at Cook Simple sent me 6 boxes of vegan-possible, gluten-free, quick-cook meals to try and their timing could not have been better. I normally avoid instant meals and kits like this, and to be fair, I probably would not have bought them had Cook Simple not asked me to review their products. But I tried all of them over the course of the past week 8 weeks, and I would definitely pick up again some of the flavors again. So never say never.
|Recognizable ingredients – always a good sign|
|I was a little scared when I opened the package. It looked like astronaut food.|
But other than this, I was pleasantly surprised. I prefer cooking from scratch. Who doesn't? But on late nights or for the culinarily challenged, these little boxes are godsends. You can always spice them up if they are too bland for you [I did on some....but not on others]
