I was recently contacted to try some products from Seven Spoons, a brand that is newly selling frozen meals at Fairway. I was curious to try as they propose dishes from different parts of the world, gluten free and with natural ingredients. I am always wary about prepared food so I gave it a try!
I received three different dishes, sent on dry ice: Quinoa Vegetable Biryani, Chicken Biryani and Thai Green Curry.
We decided to try first the Quinoa Vegetable Biryani. When I opened the bag, this is what I saw:
It contained vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, lima beans, carrots), cashews, as well as cubes that are in fact the sauce.
I cooked the quinoa in the microwave (same modus operandi for the rice):
While the vegetables and sauce (cubes) were cooking in a skillet:
After following the cooking instructions, it became this:
With it came some spices for a raita, to counteract the heat of the dish:
Then, I tried the Chicken Biryani:
There were big pieces of delicious chicken that were served with Basmati rice prepared with caramelized onions, mint, Indian style chicken base (chicken broth, sea salt, Indian spices, chicken fat, garlic and onion powder, turmeric).
The last dish was Thai Green Curry:
It was full of tofu, red pepper, green peas, bamboo shoots and baby corn, bathed in a curry sauce.
I liked these dishes for several reasons: easy to prepare, tasted natural and were flavorful, better than some of the prepared food I tried before. However, the Thai green curry and vegetarian biryani were a bit spicy; I wished they put some of the spices in a separate bag so people can decide how spicy they want the dish. The raita is definitely necessary if you do not like eating too spicy. I am now looking forward to see what other dishes they will propose, as they have several culinary experts working together.
Enjoy (I did)!
