Amy’s Vegetable Pie Pocket Sandwich – Parve

Gave Amy’s Vegetable Pie Pocket Sandwich a try a few weeks back despite not being thrilled with a previous tasting of Amy’s Vegetable Pot Pie.  The big difference between the two is that the Vegetable Pocket Sandwich is Parve. I like that it’s also made with organic vegetables.

According to ingredient list it contains organic whole wheat flour, potatoes, carrots, tofu, onions, rice flour, peas, olive oil and a variety of different seasonings. It doesn’t contain any egg or egg products, so it’s good for vegans as well. The portion of vegetables that came out of mine was close to the picture on the packaging.

The single snack sized pie/sandwich contains a incredible  300 calories, 9 grams of fat and 20% of your daily recommended intake of sodium. If you’re planning on these as an entrée you’ll need to eat 2 of them. That’s a lot of bad stuff in my opinion for something this size. On the positive side, there is zero cholesterol and it does contain the following of your daily recommended intake of: Vitamin A 25%, Vitamin C 8%, and Iron 10%.

I prepared the vegetable pocket sandwich both in the microwave and a toaster oven according to the provided instructions. While the microwave way was ready supper fast (about 2 minutes) it lacked a good texture that made  waiting the 20-25 minutes for the toaster over version worth it.

The dough was dense and lack flavor. When it came to the taste of the filling  it was bland but not as lacking as the vegetable pot pie. Still after a few bites, I turned to a bottle of Louisiana style hot sauce again to enhance it’s flavor.

Overall I have to give Amy’s Vegetable Pie Pocket Sandwich  a 2.5 out 5 on our scales. They get 1 for the organic and healthy content, a 1.0 for the convenience and 0.5 for taste. I don’t think we’ll be buying it again, but might if I find them on sale.
