Giving up gluten is hard. Giving up an additional food makes it even harder, especially when it is one you really like, like dairy. Milk wasn’t a big issue since I haven’t drunk it in years, but cheese…oh, my cheese! I know there are many decent dairy-free cheese options out there now, so when I spotted Amy’s Rice Macaroni with Dairy-Free Cheeze at the store on Sunday, I picked it up.
I don’t like to eat a lot of frozen meals, but it is nice to have something like this on hand for those busy evenings.
Ingredients: No Trans Fat/No Added MSG/No Preservatives (Vegan) Organic rice pasta (organic rice flour, water), filtered water, DaiyaTM Vegan Cheddar-Style Cheeze (filtered water, tapioca and/or arrowroot flour, expeller pressed high oleic safflower oil, coconut oil, pea protein, salt, inactive yeast, vegan natural flavors, vegetable glycerin, xanthan gum, citric acid, annatto), organic expeller pressed safflower and/or sunflower oil, organic sweet rice flour, sea salt, nutritional yeast, mustard powder.
The meal was simple to prepare in the microwave, but can be prepared in the oven, if you prefer that method. I was worried that this wouldn’t be enough food for me, but paired with some sugar snap peas, it was perfect! I really enjoyed the this meal and I might not have even known it was dairy-free had I not been the on to purchase it. The flavor and texture was fantastic and it was tummy-friendly! I can definitely see buying this again in the future.
Have you tried any of Amy’s gluten-free products? What about the Rice Macaroni with Dairy-Free Cheeze?
