I can’t tell you how excited I get to see all of the different readily-available cuisines in gluten-free varieties these days. Â I am constantly finding new gluten-free foods in new cuisines, even in new places.
I recently received some samples from Tasty Bite, and so far, it’s been a wonderful, tasty experience for me.
Luckily for me, I’ve always loved rice. Â One day last week, when I wasn’t feeling too well, I found comfort in a bowl of Thai Lime Rice, with a sweetly subtle blend of coconut, ginger, and lemongrass. Â It had enough flavor to be great rice without being too powerful for my ailing self. Â Today, I’m spicing it up with some Ginger Lentil Rice, which even has protein from the lentils. Â Growing up with my uber-picky father, I rarely had a chance to try different cuisines (I don’t count tacos or spaghetti), and certainly not much with spices. Â I LOVE trying new dishes and the intertwining flavors from other cultures. Â When I was a child, I thought ginger was only for cookies and ginger ale.
The Vegetable Korma is a sweet/spicy curry,Â whichÂ if eaten by itself, is like a thick soup. Â It has big chunks of veggies with a really excellent taste (which I might be better able to describe if I ate Indian food more often). Â It would be great over a bed of rice or with some fish or chicken. Â In fact, I got halfway through my bowl the other day and decided I needed to try it with fish. Â I’m glad I did! Â I thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful complements of flavors.
Tasty Bite meals are vegetarian/vegan and many are gluten-free. Â They come in a shelf-stable microwaveable pouch, which makes them excellent options to take to work or for travel (but probably not on a plane, unless you’re taking one of the rice varieties).
