I followed instructions on this Veestro meal as I do on all of them but it seems this didn’t get completely thawed in the center. First recommendation if you make this is to cook it a little longer and make sure the center, thickest part, is warm all the way through.
Make sure you use the sauce on this dish as well, it was a good one. I’ve never been a huge fan of vegan cheese. It just doesn’t taste like real cheese. Maybe you can get past this but it still bothers me. Because of the cheese on this I probably won’t get this one again, too bad as the sauce was great!
This morning I tried a different Veestro meal for breakfast. Last night I got it out of the freezer and put it in the fridge to defrost overnight. I also took the time to cook this in the oven. This is the first breakfast burrito I’ve ever gotten that had sauce. The meal needed 20-23 minutes in the oven and you have to stir the sauce about halfway through.
This meal is pretty heavy at 390 calories with the sauce. Taste wise I liked this better than last night’s meal of bbq chicken. The burrito was good and since it is vegan it used tofu instead of eggs. Very tasty. It also came with very small chopped potatoes. They were seasoned, but so small! I wish they had been cut a little larger. They still tasted good though.
I would get this one again! However, I think that breakfast is easy for me to do by making some oatmeal or overnight oats. So I don’t think I would get many breakfast going forward. Lunch and dinner are harder for me to make and therefore more valuable to have something ready to go.
Veestro is a meal box subscription service. You can choose what is sent to you. The food is 100% cooked, you just have to warm it up. The best part of this service is that all the food is vegan. Today we received our first box and I tried Southwest BBQ Chick’n. The chicken of course is not real chicken. It doesn’t taste like chicken, but its not bad. The sauce was good and taste with just the right amount of tang. The chicken was just okay.
The meal also came with fingerling potatoes, these were very well done and I added some ketchup to make them perfect. Lastly, there was a mix of vegetables that consisted of chopped squash and corn. It was good but a little mushy.
To be fair I did microwave the meal and I think if I had cooked it in the oven the vegetables would have turned out better and probably improved the potatoes as well. I was just too hungry to wait.
We have a lot more of these meals, I hope to remember to take pictures and rate them here for you. So you can decide if this meal option is right for you.
