Food Review: Seeds of Change Risotto Portobello di Milano

I was interested in giving Seeds of Change another try since they make certified organic foods, even though my first impression wasn't so great. I picked up a frozen entrée to try in a pinch.

I was curious about the Risotto Portobello di Milano, since the brown rice, veggies, and creamy cheese sauce sounded delicious. To find out what I thought and see the nutritional info

At first glance, I was highly disappointed. What's with the three pieces of broccoli? The picture on the box shows at least six. There weren't as many of the other veggies either, just mostly rice. Plus the few veggies it did have were kind of mushy and flavorless. It did smell good when it came out of the microwave, but it had a really strong salty, smoky onion flavor that wasn't that good. I guess I was expecting it to taste cheesier since the description on the box says "creamy cheese sauce." I ate all the veggies (I think there were only six or eight) and threw the rest of this meal out. I hate to say it, but I wasn't a fan of this risotto at all.

Have any of you tried this dish? What did you think? Tell me in the comments section below.

kind of upsetting since these organic meals are always about twice the price of lean cuisines and smartones. And apparently don't taste as good.

It doesn't look that appetizing... I think I'll just stick to my Kashi meals.

I'm not much of a frozen food fan. I find most of them are way too salty and they always skimp on the veggies. I think you're better off making your own risotto. It really isn't that time consuming (most people think it takes hours, but it really only takes about 20 minutes if you time it right) and you can put in whatever veggies you want!
