Seeds of Change

I got a chance to sample several products from a company called Seeds of Change - two types of grain products in pouches, and Jalfrezi sauce.

The Jalfrezi is supposed to be a medium-hot curry sauce, It had a little spice, but I wouldn't call it hot. But that's okay. You can always add more heat if you want, but you can't take it away.

The curry flavor wasn't an in-your-face sort of thing, so people who are wary of strongly-flavored Indian curries or super-hot Thai curries might like this one a lot. I don't dislike those other curries, but I have to say that I was really smitten with this sauce. It's got great flavor, it's different from the usual suspects in my kitchen, and it makes dinner really simple. So far, I've used it for cooking chicken thighs in my slow cooker and for braising some pork shoulder.

Those grain packages are precooked, so you just need to heat them, either in a pan or in the microwave. If you're microwaving, you just tear a corner of the bag and heat right in the bag - great if you're taking this to work.

So far, I've only tried the Seven Whole Grain, and it was really flavorful as-is. I ate a small bowl of it for lunch one day, and I added some tomato chunks and feta cheese and ate it as cold salad later.

Who's it for: Folks in a hurry who want food that's good for them.

Pros: Easy. Really easy. And I love the Jalfrezi sauce.

Cons: Let's face it. Cooking from scratch is always going to be less expensive.

Wishes: So far, none. I'll be looking for other sauces to try.

Source: I received this from the manufacturer for the purpose of a review.
