I participated in the Mom Blog Tour at the Summer Fancy Food Show on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers and received Saffron Road products to facilitate my review.
Saffron Road all natural frozen entrees have been on my must-buy list for a while because the ingredients are top notch and they cost much less than buying lunch in my office cafeteria. Little did I know how much I was missing by thinking their line was just about quick lunch ideas! When I participated in the #MomBlogTourFF tour at the Fancy Food Show in NYC, I met with the folks from Saffron Road and they opened my eyes to a whole new world of cuisines from around the globe.
Saffron Road offers more than 50 different products inspired by the native cuisines of India, Thailand, Morocco, the Middle East, Northern Africa, Mexico, and Korea. I love to spice things up so my kids get to know a variety of foods, but ethnic restaurants are hard to find where we live – and now I can accomplish those same great flavors at home with one-pot dinners, stir-fry, snacks, and even desserts from Saffron Road World Cuisine.
Saffron Road World Cuisine offers:
- Mexican entrees
- Korean entrees
- Indian entrees
- Canadian entrees
- Moroccan/Middle Eastern entrees
- Vegetarian/Vegan entrees
- chicken nuggets and tenders
- Simmer Sauces
- hors d’oeuvres
- handheld items
- crunchy chickpea snacks
- dessert tarts
All Saffron Road products are made in North America (primarily US) with the highest quality ingredients. Many are Certified Gluten-free, 16 are Non-GMO Project Verified (with more to come) and all are Certified Halal. You certainly won’t find those attributes on most “fast” foods!
That little butterfly badge of honor right there makes my heart happy. 🙂
When you’re committed to avoiding processed foods and those filled with chemicals and other yucky stuff, meal planning can get pretty time-consuming. So imagine how excited I was to find that Saffron Road had TONS of items that fit our food goals while helping me get dinner on the table in (literally) minutes.
A dinner with knock-you-out flavor. A dinner that’s not boring. A dinner that the kids will eat and ask for again!
The simmer sauces (shown above) have been a staple in our kitchen since the show. My favorite is the Tikka Masala, and the kids love the Lemongrass Basil. With sliced chicken, beef or pork and some sliced veggies, I can have a 30-minute dinner on the table and know that it’s made with real ingredients. And that rice cooker I invested in? PURE GOLD.
Let me assure you – the Saffron Road line goes way beyond stir fry. It’s not all spicy, either. Heat levels are clearly indicated on each package, and some items – like their incomparable chicken nuggets and tenders, aren’t spicy at all. Just yummy.
I cannot stress enough how much you need these. This is real, quality chicken, people. No antibiotics. GOOD nuggets that you can feel good about
stealing from feeding your kids.
Kid Food Tip: Tenders + sauce + cheese = mini chicken parm!
Of course, I’m always an advocate for spices and lots of unique flavor, so don’t miss the Tandoori seasoned nuggets. Again, antibiotic-free, humanely raised, all natural chicken, but these have those delectable Tandoori spices that are hard to duplicate as a home cook.
These little bites are perfect for anything from snacking to entertaining. (Pair them with the Tikka Masala sauce and call it a day!)
Hey, I mentioned snacks, didn’t I? Saffron Road Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas are seriously addictive, and check out these details:
Made with Organic Chickpeas • Non GMO Project Verified • Certified Gluten Free
Good source of Protein • Flash-fried & doesn’t absorb oil like a potato chip • Made in the USA
How many snacks can you feel that good about? Plus, they’re lick-your-fingers delicious. Every single flavor, from spicy/sweet Korean BBQ to Chipotle, Bombay Spice and even a killer Wasabi. (My kids are partial to the Falafel flavor.) Add them into a Chex-type party mix for a tasty change of pace, and you’re good to go for holiday entertaining, potlucks, movie night, even lunchbox snacks.
You won’t even miss those tired old chips.
Saffron Road is based in Stanford, CT, but you can find their entrees, simmer sauces, snacks and more across the country. Find a store near you.
