Modern Table Meals is a line of healthy, yummy, and easy to make pasta meal kits. Everything you need is in the bag! this includes thr bean-based pastas, dried veggies, sauce + seasoning to customize the flavor to your tastes.
For many, myself included, cooking dinner on busy weeknights can be a challenge some nights. While it is tough, I don’t want to sacrifice nutrition and quality just to be able to have the convenience of making something from a box, a frozen pizza, or worse, picking up something greasy and unhealthy at a fast food restaurant. This is where Modern Table meals come in. These meals are SO fast and easy to prepare and are full of quality, gluten-free ingredients that make you feel like you are getting a meal made from scratch. The best part? They don’t have a bunch of chemical ridden preservatives and “fake” ingredient. I love that the ingredients are things I know and that the ingredient list is minimal.
I was first introduced to Modern Table Meals back in June when I tried the ITALIAN bean pasta and veggie kit. In addition to this kit Modern Table Meals offers 4 other gluten free meal kits: Mediterranean, Southwest and the newest additions to the line, Homestyle Mac & Cheese, and Pesto.
I like the heartiness of the pasta, but be ware it does have a very different taste and than your traditional pasta and the consistency is also much denser. This is not a problem for me, I actually enjoyed the flavor of the pasta, but Jeremy did not. I was surprised by how much I liked the Mac & Cheese and how fresh the flavors tasted. But I LOVED the Pesto with Citrus Herb Seasonings. Yum! And dinner was ready in less than 20 minutes, even better!
For those who like to get creative in the kitchen, Modern Table Meals also sells just plain bean pastas! All 3 bean pastas – Mixed Lentil Penne, Confetti, and Lentil Penne – offer the perfect start to any pasta dish. The pastas are made from Green & Red Lentils, and the confetti is also made with black beans. I love that the pasta is something different then just the traditional brown rice or corn gluten-free pastas you often find on the market. These lentil and bean pastas are nutrient dense, full of flavor and an excellent addition of fiber in your diet. They are also a great addition of plant based protein with 12-20 grams of protein and 5-7 grams of fiber per serving, and are full of vitamins your body needs.
All products are vegetarian. The bean pastas and two of the meal kits, Southwest and Teriyaki (not gluten free!), are vegan. You can find Modern Table Meals at stores throughout the country, including Whole Foods and Fairway, and online.
