Degustabox September

Lots of long time Degustabox brands are in the box this month! Goya, Post, Mutti and King Arthur.

Goya pilaf is a blank slate. I simmered mine with shiitake mushrooms and added chopped fresh broccoli to the top during the last 6 minutes of cooking time.  Flavorful!

Mutti bottled tomato puree is great to have on hand when you need just a little tomato sauce for a recipe or quick cook meal. I even made a quick tomato basil creamy soup one day when I was feeling under the weather.

Angelic bakehouse sprouted toast crisps are low fat and versatile! I mainly enjoyed them with hummus but also used them in place of crackers during the month. Super crunchy and lost of interesting flavor with the whole grains.

Another variant of the King Arthur Essential Goodness line. I made the lemon bars with egg replacer as I don't eat eggs anymore and it worked fairly well, more gummy-bear like.  I know real egg would give more creamy custard texture.

 

Wild Planet tuna is without question the best-canned tuna out there. Reese quinoa cups are so handy for a vegan on the go snack.  I know quinoa cooking intimidates some people and having it precooked and pre-flavored makes eating vegan on the go a breeze.
