Last night I had Whole Kitchen Currant & Pumpkin seed Toasted Pasta for dinner. The main ingredient is Millet. You know what Millet is they are the tiny seeds in the wild bird food mix that they birds kick all over the ground.
I must admit that at first I was skeptical but it was very tasty and hearty meal. No sauce was even needed. The savory mix of seeds, dried fruit and nuts was very filling and it had taken only 15 mins to prepare. I am very much looking forward to trying their other foods, seasonings and salad toppings most are vegan and some are gluten free.
However, one does not have to be vegan or have celiac disease to enjoy these foods. My husband who "doesn't eat vegetarian food" actually liked it.
Wholesome Kitchen is a small business in NY ... Yes, folks it is Made in the USA .... and they have a nice website describing all their products but there is no shopping basket, cart or bag to be found. I also can not locate a place locally to purchase their foods either.
So, how did I come upon the Toasted Pasta, you ask. Well, I purchase my cosmetics from DHC and upon accumulating points, I received it as a "free" gift. We all know what "free" means .... purchase lots of cosmetics and we give you a point, not exactly free is it? Oh well, I really do use the stuff and I gotta eat.
Anyway, have a look at their website .... www.wholesome-kitchen.com/index.html ... and perhaps you too will have the urge to email the company to inquire about when they will incorporate a shopping function on their website. I certainly would not mind.
