Lightlife - Smart BBQ

As a big fan of Lightlife Smart Chili, I decided to try their Smart BBQ as well.  Like the Smart Chili, it comes in a pouch and can be found in the refrigerated section of grocery stores. It was a weeknight and I wasn't interested in spending a lot of time cooking so this seemed perfect.

All I had to do was grill a whole wheat burger bun and heat the pouch up in the microwave for a minute or so!

Once I was finished with that, I placed the bun on a plate and put some Smart BBQ on it, which looked like it had the consistency of pulled pork. I topped the Smart BBQ with a few baby spinach leaves and a slice of tomato.

I found it to be very smoky and tangy so the tomato definitely helped temper the strong taste.  The shreds are made of water, soy protein isolate, wheat gluten, wheat starch, malt extract, and beet powder for color. I really enjoyed the taste and texture and loved how easy it was to make. And with only 70 calories and 0 grams of fat per serving, I think this is a great low-fat option for a quick lunch or dinner.
