(Forgive me for the headline, I couldn't help myself.)
Enjoy Life has introduced another allergen-free snack for those who need to avoid wheat, milk, eggs, soy, and nuts. I was very excited when they sent me a box of Plentils to try:
Don’t you just love the colors and the packaging?
Why are they called Plentils? Because they are made from lentils. I continue to be amazed at some of the foods that can be created by combining ingredients like lentils with potato starch, oils, powder, and spices – like this product does.
Enjoy Life Foods bills them as a chip, and they are something between a chip and a cracker. The scooped shape makes them reminiscent of Tostitos Corn Scoops – but these do not try to mimic a corn taste. Instead, the taste is uniquely Plentils.
Now, I’ll be honest, I like potato chips and corn chips, and they are easy enough to find without food allergens, so an allergen-free chip wasn’t on the top of my list of foods to replace. But, Plentils are low fat (about 40%) less fat, and they come in flavors – dill and sour cream, garlic and parmesan (my favorite of the bunch), margherita pizza (with a bit of a tang), and light sea salt (the mildest of the quartet). All of them (of course) are dairy-free. The sour cream and cheese tastes are simulated.
Have you tried Plentils yet? What do you think?
