There are conveniences when it comes to microwavable meals – they’re quick and easy to make, they make for an inexpensive meal, and there’s a huge variety of them. That being said, most of them lack quality ingredients and taste. But after reading this Tastefully Plated review, I bet you’ll change your mind and want to try these chef created, restaurant quality microwavable meals yourself!
What is Tastefully Plated?
Tastefully Plated allows you to enjoy the convenience of a prepared frozen meal, without sacrificing quality and taste. Their see-through packaging allows you to actually see your meal before you buy it – you can literally see the quality. The simple, white plate that the meal comes on looks great from microwave to table, too.
Tastefully Plated Review
You know when you buy a frozen meal and you open it up and all the different parts of the meal are mixed up? The veggies are in with the potatoes. The chicken has mixed in with the veggies.
What I like about Tastefully Plated is that the sealing system that they use keeps the food exactly where it’s supposed to be. The sealing system seems to be some kind of vacuum, and it also comes off of the plate easily and mess free for quick, clean serving. Because of the sealing, the meal stay beautifully plated and ready for your dining room table (or in my case, desk.)
The BPA-free sealing expands like a balloon during cooking. The steam heating warms the meal evenly and keeps the food moist, fresh and delicious.
You can learn a bit more about it by watching this video.
Now let’s talk about the actual food. YUM! There are a ton of different Tastefully Plated meal options to choose from. You’ll find beef, pork, chicken, and vegetarian selections. You can see that the food is high quality; the chicken looks like chicken and the veggies look full of color and crisp. The meals are chef-crafted with the freshest ingredients and healthier than traditional ready-made meals.
The description reads: Roasted chicken breast in a Marsala wine sauce with mushroom risotto and steamed baby carrots in a butter sauce.
This is what it looks like before it goes into the microwave. You don’t need to remove anything from the dish except the yellow description tag.
I popped it into the microwave for 3 minutes.
Here’s what it looks like out of the microwave.
And here’s the finished product.
It was absolutely delicious! The chicken tasted like I made it myself. The risotto was perfect and the mushrooms were plump and full of flavor. The carrots were crisp, brightly colored, and tasted like carrots (which makes sense if you have ever eaten a frozen meal and only know what your supposed to be tasting because it looks like a carrot!)
I actually was not expecting the meals to be so good. I didn’t expect the food to taste like a real meal that I’d make myself. I didn’t expect the freshness or such high quality. I was pleasantly surprised and absolutely will be ordering more from Tastefully Plated! At just $6.99 a meal, it’s cheaper than eating fast food and more healthy too.
