Semi-Homemade Can Be Gluten-Free, Top 8 Free & Non-GMO with Namaste Foods

by Allergy Free Kitchens on July 31, 2014


Our semi-homemade series continues with gluten-free, Top 8 Free, all natural, non-GMO products from Namaste Foods.  They so kindly provided me with three products to make and review.  The dish pictured above was made with Namaste Foods Pasta Pisavera Dinner.  Yum!


When the package arrived, I was most interested in trying the Namaste Barbecue Seasoned Coating Mix.  The box contains two packets of seasoning and two shaker bags.  One packet alone provided plenty of seasoning to generously cover four large chicken breasts.  Once the coating was on, I placed the chicken atop a rack on a baking pan (this allowed air to circulate around the chicken).  I then popped the chicken in the pre-heated oven and cooked it according to package instructions.  Easy peasey.  When finished, the chicken had quite a vibrant brick red hue, which complimented our vegetables quite nicely.  When the moment of truth came and we sliced into our chicken, we found it tender, juicy, and full of flavor.  Although I’m a sweet and spicy barbecue kind of gal, this more savory version was a nice change of pace.  The coating doesn’t crisp up like breaded chicken breasts will do, so if you are looking for crispy chicken, you may want to consider adding the seasoning packet to your breading and baking it up that way.

Next, I tried Namaste Foods Muffin Mix.  In all fairness, the package instructions call for egg, which we avoid at the moment, so I used my standard egg replacer (flax gel).  The muffins turned out dense and didn’t cook through, despite an extended baking time.  The flavor was good, so I plan to give it another go.  When I do, I’ll be sure to update the post.  If you’ve made these successfully without egg, please share in the comments below.  🙂

Our favorite product from the review was the Namaste Foods Pasta Pisavera Dinner.  As suggested on the package, we made some additions.  I seeded and chopped one large yellow bell pepper, one large red bell pepper, and four roma tomatoes.  I drizzled them all with olive oil, tossed to coat, and topped them with a sprinkling of half of the seasoning packet that came with the dinner.  I roasted them in my oven at 425 degrees for 25 minutes.  While the peppers and roma tomatoes roasted, I prepared the pasta according to package directions.  When the pasta was cooked and the peppers and tomatoes were done, I tossed them all together, topped it off with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, and finished with a twist or two of sea salt and fresh cracked pepper.  Delicious.

Semi-homemade is a term all of us food allergy moms love. We can create culinary delights, stay safe and prepare quickly since some of the items are pre-made. A dream recipe I would say!
