Review of Kashi Mayan Harvest Bake

Food Review: Kashi Mayan Harvest Bake

You just can't go wrong with foods made by Kashi. Not only does everything they make contain whole grains and real ingredients, but they're always full of flavor too. A while back, I was thrilled when they began making frozen pizzas and entrées. The ones I've tried I really liked, so when picking up a couple boxes at the store, I discovered a new dish — Mayan Harvest Bake.

Talk about a unique meal. It's made with plantains, kale, and amaranth polenta. Want to see what it really looks like? Then

.

This has to be my favorite Kashi entrée yet. The amaranth polenta had a satisfyingly creamy texture, and the baked sweet potatoes and cooked kale made this meal seem homemade. The plantains were delicious, very sweet and soft, and they complemented the spicy ancho sauce so well. I loved the sprinkled pepitas (pumpkin seeds) on top that added a crunchy texture. This meal is warm and savory, perfect for a quick Winter meal. It's also vegan, so it contains no cholesterol and is low in saturated fat. It's pretty low in sodium too, which I was happy to see. The fiber content is not too shabby, but I would have thought it contained more protein since there were tons of black beans mixed in. Overall, I loved this Mayan Harvest Bake and would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes bean and veggie dishes.

I just finished eating it. Very tasty. A different texture but I love it after two or three bites i was a fan. I love trying foods and trying to replicate them at home. This is my next project.

Omg this looks fantastic! I love Kashi products, but they had one dish- the black bean mango salsa that made me gag too. However, I know a ton of people who love it, so perhaps it's just something I don't care for. I will definitely try this!

SO funny, Fit--I emailed YumSugar about this meal a week or two ago and told her to review it! It's SO SO SO good. Best frozen meal I've had, hands down!

Last time I ate a frozen dinner from Kashi, it made me gag. It was a pesto pasta dish that tasted terrible. I love their other products though. Maybe I'll give them another try.

I'm from Jamaica and this meal looks a lot like something I would cook up. I love polenta and plantains. MMMM. I'm going to go buy this.

On a side note I am slightly bothered that they would call this 'Mayan' since a lot of the ingredients in it have absolutely nothing to do with mayan cooking.

Yes, there are 19g of sugar BUT there is also 8g of fiber which negates the blood sugar raising effects of the sugar. Still.. total sugar is a bit high. Unfortunately I won't be trying this or any other Kashi product anymore since they use wheat in nearly every single product and I have come to realize that i (and my skin) don't tolerate wheat.
