Sweet Earth Southwest Veggie Breakfast Bowl Review

Sweet Earth Southwest Veggie Breakfast Bowl

Sweet Earth is one of the very first brands that we reviewed when we started Freezer Meal Frenzy. We started out reviewing frozen burritos, and Sweet Earth makes a ton of those, so Sweet Earth reviews became a foundation on which the Freezer Meal Frenzy empire was built. In fact, their Curry Tiger Burrito was one of the very first frozen food reviews we ever did.

Of course, Sweet Earth makes a ton of non-burrito items as well, and everything they make is vegetarian-friendly. We’re pretty big fans of their Farmstand breakfast sandwich line, despite the fact that it’s not always easy to find.

Today, we’re reviewing another breakfast option, the Sweet Earth Southwest Veggie Breakfast Bowl. While this isn’t a Farmstand sandwich, we’re still excited to see what this breakfast food is all about. We recently tried their Protein Lover’s Breakfast Bowl, and we didn’t think it was as good as we hoped, though we did think it had a lot of potential. If the Southwest Veggie Breakfast Bowl can avoid some of the missteps of the Protein Lover’s bowl, this could be a top-notch frozen breakfast option.

So does this breakfast bowl stick the landing? There’s only one way to be find out, so let’s dig in.

First, though, we must cook this. It’s as simple as tossing the bowl into the microwave for two minutes, giving it a quick stir, then tossing it back in for another minute. It’s super fast and super easy. You could also go with the oven if you really want to, but that will take you twelve times longer.

The eggs here turn out pretty good, which is great since they make up a sizeable portion of this meal. They don’t end up soggy or rubbery, like some scrambled eggs, and they end up with a lovely Southwest zing due to the chili powder blend.

You’ve also got a generous helping of vegetables, including corn, black beans, red bell peppers, and poblano chili peppers. Admittedly, none of these veggies on its own is particularly amazing, but the combination really works here. We do wish the quality of the corn were a little better, but we’ve certainly had worse corn in a frozen meal.

The eggs and veggies rest atop a bed of rice, which is enhanced with a spritz of lime juice. The citrus burst really takes the flavor to the next level, elevating this dish from good to great.

All of this is topped with a tasty Monterey jack cheese, which brings the whole thing together. While our cheese ended up clumped together on the edge of the bowl, we have to admit that the portion size was more generous than we expected. No, this isn’t a Lotzza Motzza pizza or anything, but there’s a decent amount of cheese here for a breakfast bowl.

So how about the calorie count? Well, this is higher in calories than its Protein Lover’s counterpart, with 320 calories per bowl. Still, that really not bad at all. And the 550 mg of sodium means this has less sodium than the average frozen meal. We also think it’s pretty filling, due to the generous egg portion, and eaten alongside their morning coffee, this was enough to fill up our reviewer. You could certainly do much, much worse.

The Sweet Earth Southwest Veggie Breakfast Bowl is a really great vegetarian-friendly breakfast with a Southwestern twist. While the veggies themselves could be a bit higher in quality (the corn especially), the meal as a whole ends up being really tasty regardless. If you’re stuck at the grocery store trying to decide between this and the Protein Lover’s bowl, we’re 100% on team Southwest.
