The label says that the Indian name for these yummy vegetables with sauce is Dal Shorba. While the label calls the mixture a soup, I think of it more as an Indian dish because it is so thick (aka vegetables with thick sauce) like most Indian vegetable dishes. The dish is vegan and gluten free.
The dish has a healthy ingredient list -- in fact, the only ingredients are: water, carrots, red lentils, onion, cabbage, green peas, apple, potato, sunflower oil, salt, corn flour, garlic, tamarind, ginger, coriander powder, cumin, coriander leaves, green chili, tumeric, cardamom, and cinnamon.
When I was at Trader Joe's they were serving it with Jasmine rice, which was delicious and definitely a great option. However, I highly recommend eating it with low calorie naan either Trader Joe's Naan (convenient since you can buy it at the same time) or the Tandoor Chef Naan if you want the full Indian experience (like when you go to a restaurant). I also ate a serving with some low calorie crumpets (which I will blog about those later this week).
The "soup" comes in single serving packages. A serving is 1 1/4 cups (very filling!), 140 calories, 4 grams of fat, 2 grams of fiber, and 5 grams of protein (so only 3 weight watchers points!). It also has a good amount of Vitamin C and Iron in it.
The Dal Shorba is really good! The lady behind me in line (watching me buy three packages) was commenting on how great she thought it was as well.
