Commercial Meal Review: Green Bean Cuisine

This was a meal I wondered about – would it work, how would it taste? The meal for review was Green Bean Cuisine by Pack Lite Foods. A simply packed 3.5 ounce dry meal that is vegetarian friendly for one.


It is a one pot meal, simply bring the dry ingredients and 1 1/2 cups water to a boil in your pot, then cook on a simmer for 5 minutes. I let it sit for another 5 minutes covered to thicken up.

Ready to eat:


It is an interesting meal choice. The texture of the mushrooms, wild and brown rices and slivered almonds give it crunch, the green beans add a juicy vegetable. It is a half way mix of being a thick chowder and a casserole. It is also very low sodium for a commercial meal, 313 mg of sodium for the entire serving. The meal has plenty of flavor so unless one likes a salt lick the lower sodium is perfect. To me it is the perfect amount.

It is satisfying and perfect for the smaller/medium sized appetite. For men who love to eat I would recommend adding in some chicken to bump up the protein.
