Amy’s Greek Inspired Red Rice & Veggies Review

Amy's Greek Inspired Red Rice & Veggies

Amy’s Kitchen has long been one of our favorite frozen food brands, which is why we’re always excited to see new products from Amy’s in the freezer aisle. They have plenty of healthy frozen options, and their entire line is vegetarian-friendly. What’s not to love about that? So when we spotted the Amy’s Kitchen Greek Inspired Red Rice & Veggies, we hurried to add it to our cart.

Every once in a while, a frozen meal has a cooking process with some difficult steps, but this dish is a cinch to prepare. All you need to do is toss it in the microwave for 3 and 1/2 minutes and then let it cool. If you don’t have a microwave, or if you’re feeling patient, you can also try putting this in the oven.

Amy's Greek Inspired Red Rice & Veggies

Sometimes we prefer a light lunch, especially if we’re planning on chowing down on something like pizza or nachos later on. We appreciate that this meal isn’t all that heavy, but we couldn’t help but be disappointed when we took it out of the microwave. It’s basically just rice and veggies; it feels more like a side dish than a substantial meal. And, as you might be able to tell from the image above, some of the veggies are on the dry side.

That isn’t to say that this is bad, exactly. The veggies might be a bit dry, but if you give the meal a good stir, you’ll find a tangy vinaigrette that gives the dish a little more moisture. We also enjoyed the yummy crumbles of feta cheese. However, this is a 500 calorie meal, and it’s not satiating or tasty enough to make up for that. Sure, it has plenty of nutrients, but if we’re eating 500 calories of frozen food, we’d rather have a lasagna or a delicious mac & cheese.

Amy’s Greek Inspired Red Rice & Veggies is basically just a bowl of rice and veggies, but somehow, it’s still packed with calories. This meal doesn’t taste bad, but it’s not very filling, and we think there are much better options in the freezer aisle. We’d recommend avoiding this and choosing something that’s a little more nutrient-dense. Amy’s Kitchen may claim that this is a good source of protein, but according to the label, there are just 9 grams of protein here. We’d prefer a little more bang for our protein buck!
