Oh my goodness, a gluten-free burrito?!?! I seriously flipped out when I just found these ">Glutenfreeda Burritos at Mother's Market. I haven't had a burrito since before I was gluten-free so about 8 years. So I happened to see this in the freezer section of my local Mother's Market and had to try one. I tried the Vegetarian Bean & Cheese flavor. I had it for dinner tonight once I got home and it was really good. I highly recommend it and will soon be purchasing any other flavors I can get my hands on.
The tortilla was very good, it's made with corn, rice and potato flours as well as a few other ingredients. The bummer for me was that there were actual corn kernels in it and I can't eat whole corn kernals. I can occasionally eat it ground up in tortillas but I was able to easily pull out the corn kernels! Again, this is only if you have problems with corn - it's not at all related to gluten!
It has rice and all sorts of great flavors. It was a little tiny bit spicy, but I can't eat anything spicy so it wasn't overly spicy if I could eat it and enjoy it!
The price at my store was $3.19. For the size of the burrito, it's higher than I would like as it would take more than one burrito to make a full meal. However, considering it's gluten-free, fast and can be filling...it was worth it to me!
I don't know about you, but I missed the ease and convenience of a quick and filling microwave burrito that tastes good. I thoroughly enjoyed this and will definitely eat more in the future! I'm also looking forward to trying other Glutenfreeda products when I see them (see the site here). Thanks Glutenfreeda!!
P.S.~Sorry if the pictures of the burrito wasn't super flattering...it's still a microwave burrito but it tasted good and that's all that matters to me!
Love your posts! I work with Helen's Kitchen and we just came out with Gluten Free Burrito Bowls! I saw your post above and thought this would be right up your ally. There is a Fiesta Black Bean and a veggie, both with two servings of vegetables, 10 grams of protein and a good source of fiber. In addition to being gluten and meat-free, both are also free of GMOs, trans fat, MSG, antibiotics, steroids or genetically modified substances. Let us know if you get a chance to try one!ReplyDelete
I see that my local Safeway carries these, I can't wait to try them. Thanks for the review!ReplyDelete
