Amy’s Kitchen Veggie Steak & Gravy Whole Meal

Author: Healthnuttxo

I know when I bought this meal I had a friend turn up her nose when she heard the words “veggie steak”, but please don’t let it dissuade you from trying this meal out! I thought it was actually incredibly delicious 🙂

First I cooked the meal, 4 1/2 minutes on HIGH and then 2 minutes on 50% power. I also added a tablespoon of water after the 4 1/2 minutes to the green beans because they looked like they needed it.

We’ll start with the green beans. They actually were surprising to me, usually when I eat green beans they have that bite, or that not-quite-done-yet consistency. These, however, were tender and actually very good. Fresh and soft, but still good.

Next up, the mashed potatoes. There was a good amount, and they almost looked perfect sitting there. Smooth on top, white, the perfect size. They were fluffy, and slightly salty with a yummy potato taste, but at the same time they were a bit bland. I guess I was missing that dab of butter that is normally on top of my homemade mashed potatoes  : )

Lastly, the veggie steak and the gravy. First off, the gravy was absolutely delicious. Thick, salty (in a good way), rich and buttery tasting. The perfect gravy! It covered most of the veggie steak, which is kind of hard to explain other than it was delicious. It was very textured, yet soft at the same time. It had vegetables and other things scattered throughout, with an occasional bump that I’m assuming were tiny pieces of walnuts. It was really good. I liked dipping it in the mashed potatoes!

Overall, delicious! I felt the mashed potatoes needed a little extra something, but still a good meal.I also thought it was a bit high in saturated fat, but not too bad (7 grams). 4 1/2 stars.

1 meal is 380 calories, 16 grams of fat, 50 grams of carbohydrates, 7 grams of fiber, 7 grams of sugar and 12 grams of protein.

What’s your favorite veggie-style product?

    I LOVE the Veggie Steak & Gravy. It’s my favorite of the Amy’s brand meals. I agree about the potatoes-pretty bland. I mixed them with the green beans 🙂 I wish they’d market JUST the “steak” part in a family size portion though!

    ahh, agreed! Wouldn’t that be nice? I always thought how nice it would be if Amy’s sold parts of their meals individually!
