Our Family Tries a Delicious New Flavor Experience with Saffron Road7:20 PM
My kids are explorers who enjoy seeing new places and trying new foods. They have not, however, had the joy of trying a few worldwide staples that are commonplace for other families to eat. Thanks to a recent partnership with Saffron Road, a fine-food company specializing in humane and Halal dishes, we had an amazing evening trying some new frozen meals in a family-style setting.
What did we try? First, we microwaved the Chicken Pad Thai. This had a slightly spicy peanut sauce, chicken, and noodles. My usually-very-picky 6-year-old (who hates spice, by the way) devoured this dish. He was reluctant to share, and when everyone was done trying it, he cleaned up the plate!
Next we tried a very famous meal, Chicken Tikka Masala. This had a very creamy sauce, chicken breast meat, and a very aromatic basmati rice (which is my favorite rice!) We all enjoyed this dish. It had plenty of extra sauce, which we used as a dip for our bread. We served it with fresh cucumbers, too.
Finally, my 12-year-old's favorite, Chicken Biryani was served! This dish had lots of cumin, and a nice warmth to it. The onions gave it a great flavor profile!
I was very happy with the size of the portions for these meals. While they don't look that big in the packaging, once cooked, you can put it into a nice serving plate and give the rice or noodles a good fluffing with a fork. They look good enough to serve to guests and are a great way to offer high-quality dishes within minutes. Since I have no experience cooking these types of foods -- but I enjoy eating them -- this gave us a simple solution for keeping our meal plans diverse!
