I'm always on the look out for an easy dinner. I try to find a no-thought-required meal - usually microwaveable. But it's hard to find high quality microwaveable options.
These Whole & Simple microwave bowls were going for $2.99 a box and boasting a wealth of protein, vegetables, and grains. Sold! I bought the Adoba Chicken and the Korean Inspired Beef Bowl.
The ingredients list is easy to read, and the box claims nothing artificial. I believe it. Both boxes were hearty meals. However, I wasn't a huge fan of the Adoba Chicken. It had a higher protein count but was dry and needed more sauce. End of story.
On the other hand, the Korean bowl was pretty good! It had excellent little slices of beef, plenty of sauce, and the grains filled me up quickly. Additional ingredients included shiitake mushrooms, kale, spinach, bamboo shoots and sesame seeds. This bowl has a mild spice to it, but if you aren't a fan of heat, I wouldn't recommend it.
Overall, I think these were good. I feel like something was missing from both sauces that would elevate their flavor. But as a microwave dinner, this is a healthy option that will put your mind at ease.
