My local grocery store just started carrying this product. I don't know if it is new, but I suspect it is. The oldest reference to it I could find on the internet is from April of this year.<br><br>
The facts: 150 calories! Only 4g of fat, 3g of protein and a whopping 8g of fiber. It has a decent bit of vitamin A, calcium and iron. It is vegan.<br><br>
How does it taste? I heated it up in a saucepan. While stirring it, I tasted the spoon. Wow, nice tasting sauce. Very bold. What is in it, exactly? Well, it is a very bright red sauce, tofu noodles (fettuccine style), and about 5 chickpeas.<br><br>
Now heated up, I put it in a bowl and started eating it. That bold sauce is much more bold than I first thought from my little taste from the spoon. As is, it is too bold. I think that maybe adding about half a cup of cooked rice would help dilute it. Don't get me wrong, it is a good flavor, just too much of it. You can definitely taste curry and tomato paste. It also has a little bit of citrus and licorice in the mix. The noodles are made of tofu, like their other products. Therefore, they are a little rubbery. But I expected that.<br><br>
One thing I admire about it is that it isn't under salted. It does have 710mg of salt, though. That's a bit high, but I didn't find a need to add any.<br><br>
Overall, I can halfway recommend it. It cost me about $3.20 for a 10 ounce portion (just a snack for me, not a whole meal). It is <i>really</i> bold and has more sauce than necessary, so if you add some veggies and rice to it, you could make a full meal out of it. Considering how nutritious it is and its potential as a full meal if you add veggies/rice, it's not a bad deal.<br><br><img alt="" src="" style="border:0px solid;">
