Namaste Foods Review and Giveaway!

Namaste Prize Pack

Have you heard about Namaste Foods?  They make pasta meal kits, baking mixes and coating mixes that do NOT contain wheat, gluten, corn, soy, dairy, casein, peanuts or tree nuts. All their products are made in a 100% dedicated gluten and allergen-free facility, owned and operated by Namaste Foods themselves. And all their products are genetically modified (GMO) free. Pretty impressive!

Namaste kindly sent me a couple of products to review. Since my family loves trying new things, we were thrilled. But sending pasta and a cake mix, my kids were over the moon!

Namaste Taco Pasta Dinner

Namaste Taco Pasta Dinner

The pasta dinner comes with dry pasta and seasoning. The pasta is really only enough to serve two, but to stretch it out I added 1lb ground bison, corn, and bell peppers. No tex-mex dish is complete unless it’s topped with my favorite herb, cilantro, so with a sprinkling of that the pasta was complete. It was just enough to serve our hungry family of four with a side of steamed broccoli. I love how easy the mix was to use, just cook the pasta and toss in the seasoning and extra ingredients. The pasta is brown rice and hemp, so there’s a little protein and omega bonus in there for you. And it’s so versatile – you can add anything you like. I can imagine this would be delicious topped with fresh diced tomatoes and avocados too.

Namaste Spice Cake Mix

Now this was decadently good. As to be expected of a gluten-free cake, it was very dense and moist. I am normally not a huge fan of spice cakes because the spices are usually overpowering, but not in this case. I found the spices to be just perfect. Since all cake is naked without frosting in my opinion, I added this allergen-free Velvet Frosting (basically a “butter cream”) from Cybele Pascal.  Really and truly, this was divine. I served it to a small crowd of non-allergy folk and everyone gobbled up every last crumb. My only comment is that this is not meant to be a healthy cake, for us it was splurge and it was well worth it.

    It is so exciting when we can find a product that is free of the top 8 allergens! The mixes are so exciting and it is a real “treasure” to find these products. I always make sure I thank the managers via e-mail or in person! In addition, I always try to request a product I would like to purchase and often, the manager honors my request. Also, the managers are sometimes willing to sell cases of a specific product at a discount!

    • That’s great. If enough requests are made, then they see what is popular and can regularly stock those items.

    Just learned my daughter-in-law is allergic to wheat, corn, walnuts and a host of other food products and we have been trying unsuccessfully to find alternative products. Based on the review I would definately try Namaste products since they did look quite appetizing!

    • Hi Janice – I’m so glad you found my photos appetizing because I really did try, but I’m not the world’s greatest food photographer – not by a long shot. Good luck in the contest. You’ll get the hang of baking for your daughter-in-law and I think it’s great you’re trying hard to accommodate her!

  12. To make fast and easy meals, I use my crockpot a whole lot. What an awesome giveaway. My kiddos would love some Namaste products. I love seeing non-gmo! I didn’t get to visit with them at FAB.
