We were able to review and sample Organic Bistro Sesame Ginger Wild Salmon Bowl, Asian Style Coconut Lemongrass Bowl, and Organic Bistro Wild Alaskan Salmon Cakes.

My review can be summed up with one sentence:

Step aside chicken nuggets and french fries,
Organic Bistro is in the #1 spot for kids favorite foods!

Organic Bistro Sesame Ginger Wild Salmon Bowl

My family enjoys salmon, I buy it as often as i can. We have never had a dish quite as complex as the Organic Bistro Sesame Ginger Wild Salmon Bowl. The vegetables of carrots, zucchini, broccoli, red bell pepper with the basmati rice didn’t concern me, my kids eat those ingredients all the time. It was the tamari sauce, quinoa, lemon juice, ginger puree, and cayenne pepper that I wasn’t sure about.  In our house, we use the one bite rule. Everyone must try one bite, it they don’t like it, they don’t have to finish it. I did taste-test it first to be sure the cayenne pepper wasn’t overwhelming, and it wasn’t, hardly noticeable.

“Can I have more Salmon, Mom?” asked my 6 year old son. Since we were all sampling the 3 single-serving dishes, we each just had a few bites of each. Now I know that my  kids both like the Organic Bistro Sesame Ginger Wild Salmon Bowl, I will buy more! The flavor combination was just perfect, full of flavor. The vegetables and rice were extra delicious too, I know it is because it is organic and no preservatives were used. You can really tell the difference in foods.

Organic Bistro Asian Style Coconut Lemongrass Bowl

The Organic Bistro Asian Style Coconut Lemongrass Bowl is another interesting flavor combination. What I like about the Organic Bistro bowls is that they offer plenty of healthy vegetables including broccoli, green beans, peas, carrots, with brown basmati rice. My family isn’t use the the combination of coconut and lemongrass flavors. The Organic Bistro Asian Style Coconut Lemongrass Bowl also includes dried Jalapeno chile.

Yummy! The Organic Bistro Asian Style Coconut Lemongrass Bowl  is another winner for our entire family. It took me a little while to get use to coconut and lemongrass flavors together, but it was tasty. My kids devoured it like it was their favorite dish ever!

Organic Bistro Alaskan Salmon Cakes are paired with organic cooked brown Basmati rice, organic green beans, organic edamame, organic sugar snap peas, organic carrots, organic cooked black beans, organic cooked Japonica rice.  My husband agreed that the salmon cakes were done right, with great flavor too. My kids agreed that they were tasty as well.

My overall take on Organic Bistro is super positive. If I can feed my family healthy meals with lots of variety and flavor, why wouldn’t I? The bowls and entrees are generously sized and priced very reasonably at around $4.99 each. My kids asked if we could have Organic Bistro again and the answer is YES!

My family enjoys a variety of foods. We do eat meat but we have, on occasion enjoyed veggie burgers as well. We were happy to try Helen’s Kitchen Original Gardensteak. This is a very convenient food as it is already precooked, simply heat and serve. My husband and I each enjoyed a gardensteak sandwich today for lunch while our kids were in school. It is nice to have a healthy option for lunch that is fast and healthy. We enjoyed both the taste and texture of the gardensteak. We topped it like we would any other burger with lettuce, onions, and tomatoes. I plan to grill up some for dinner this weekend too.
