Lunch today (Day 1) was a Black Bean and Feta wrap with Wild Rice Salad.
The meal is sent shrink wrapped and as you can see, nothing can move! Which is great, as this kind of meal could get very messy otherwise.
I unwrapped it and decided to eat the whole thing cold, though I imagine they could both be heated just fine.
The wrap was a little moist from condensation but that was easily wiped off with a napkin. I took the first bite and it was surprisingly really good. I hadn’t thought to do such a wrap before but I was quite pleased with the taste.
It had a bit of salt from the feta, a nice bean flavor without being overpowering, it wasn’t mushy but rather, it had a fresh wrap taste – surprising since it was previously frozen! The salad made me hesitate initially, I enjoy wild rice but as a cold salad … well, once again I was very pleasantly surprised. It’s sweet, crunchy, and very fresh tasting. It has a lot of flavor and is quite complex in that respect. As you’ll see from the ingredients below, both were very well seasoned to allow for a great flavor combination. I forgot my orange juice at home but I had some at work so I poured an 8 oz glass of that with some ice to complete the meal.
Overall it was an excellent meal and I was full after eating it.
