Mr Lee's Zen Garden Vegetables (Degusta) By @SpectreUK

Mr Lee's Zen Garden Vegetables

Okay, this might sound mean, but for me putting the word "Zen" in front of Garden Vegetables doesn't make them sound more interesting. I like garden vegetables. I like being relaxed and having that peaceful feeling that the word Zen is associated with these days, but using it to spruce up something that otherwise would sound quite boring makes me feel like more of a grumpy old man!

I'll try to stop being mean and look more at the product… These Mr Lees Zen Garden Vegetables Noodles read very healthily when looking at the plastic pot. They're a fairly good source of protein for helping to repair my muscles after a session at the gym with 6.8g per pot. They're gluten free, and low in sugar and in fat, and also low in calories. However, as far as I'm aware, calories are important as we need them for energy to help the protein fix the muscles. These miso rice noodles also have diced asparagus, green beans, spinach and ginger added in.

On opening the pot there was a big blob of stringy miso rice on top of a lot or diced vegetables. I added freshly boiled water, left the pot to stand for a while, then stirred. On sniffing the mixed noodles and vegetables I passed the pot to Cinabar. She said it smelt of greens, which I guess she was right, but the contents of the pot just didn't smell very strong. There wasn't much to taste either. I could imagine a hint of asparagus, and maybe a little onion, and after a few mouthfuls of noodles and diced greens I caught a mild flavour of ginger. There was this mild taste of ginger throughout the rest of the pot, but this noodle pot was unfortunately more frustrating then Zen I'm afraid!

Information on the pot;
The 57.9g pot contains 208 calories, 1.4g of fat, 4.6g of sugar, and 3g of salt. Please see photograph for ingredients.
