About the Market Creations
These meals are a bit different from the normal TV dinners we're all used to. Instead of a plastic container, these come in a steaming bag. It's single serve, for those of us who like to cook for one (me!!). You have to use your own dish, but I actually prefer that as it improves the eating experience.
Maybe Add Something Extra?
Now, these are meant for dinner, and that's the meal that I ate them in. I also ate a spring mix salad with shredded carrots, avocado, crab stick, and Annie's Goddess dressing. I think that's totally fine, since neither part of the meal had too many calories. With both this and the salad, I am definitely full. I'm pretty sure I'd still be hungry with only the potstickers. That's my only con to this frozen dinner.
So how does it taste?
I have to say, this is definitely a new favorite of mine. It's slightly more expensive than the other Lean Cuisine meals, but only by a few cents, and tastes a ton better. The potstickers tasted like REAL potstickers. It also had crunchy water chestnuts, edamame beans, green beans, red peppers, and carrots in a sweet chili ginger soy sauce. The veggies tasted crunchy and fresh, not soggy and mushy like most frozen meal veggies do.
