Amy’s Light & Lean Quinoa & Black Beans with Butternut Squash & Chard Review

Amy's Light & Lean Quinoa & Black Beans with Butternut Squash & Chard

While we love Amy’s Kitchen, we’re not the biggest fans of their Light & Lean line. We know how good Amy’s Kitchen food can be, and their leaner meals usually don’t live up to our high expectations. Their Quinoa & Black Beans with Butternut Squash & Chard didn’t blow us away, but it is a meal we’d be willing to eat again.

If you’re absolutely ravenous, this probably isn’t going to satisfy you. This is a light, simple meal that consists of basic ingredients. Because of the beans and quinoa, this dish has plenty of protein, but it isn’t a very filling meal.

That said, this is a nice light lunch. The beans look a little bit mushy in the picture above, but we thought they tasted fine, especially when they were mixed together with the quinoa.

The butternut squash is absolutely delicious; it has a sweetness to it that we really love. The box promises Swiss chard, but we didn’t have a lot of chard in our bowl. This meal definitely could have used some more greens!

If you’re looking for the best Amy’s has to offer, look elsewhere. If you’re looking for a low-calorie meal that’s full of nutrients, you might be pleased with this dish. It’s not particularly impressive, but it is a decent meal, and sometimes, that’s more than enough.
