BATTLE CREEK, Mich., May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Using steam to bring out delicious flavors from real ingredients, Kashi, the premier natural food and lifestyle company, today announced the addition of two new mouthwatering Steam Meal varieties—Kashi® Three Cheese Ravioli and Kashi® Mushroom and Asparagus Risotto. Made with the signature Kashi® Seven Whole Grain™ blend and tasty flavor combinations, the new vegetarian Steam Meals offer two servings per bag and provide a convenient and nourishing alternative when a from-scratch meal isn't an option.

Adding a nutritious spin to a classic dish, this meal delivers 23g of whole grains, 13g of protein and 5g of fiber per serving1.
- Kashi Mushroom and Asparagus Risotto Steam Meal combines rich Crimini mushrooms and crisp asparagus with Kashi Seven Whole Grains & Sesame™ pilaf, and is tossed in a flavorful parmesan cream sauce. This hearty risotto entree provides nearly a day's worth of recommended whole grains in one serving with 45g, 12g of protein and 7g of fiber per serving2.
"Our new Kashi Steam Meals for two are delicious, good-for-you versions of traditional comfort dishes that deliver what people like most about a homemade meal—real, quality ingredients and incredible taste," said Jeff Johnson, senior nutritionist and natural food and lifestyle expert at Kashi. "Convenient and nutritious, these are must-haves for the freezer at home and in the office."
The new flavors join Kashi's existing Steam Meal line, which includes Chicken and Chipotle BBQ and Italian Vegetable Medley Pasta for two, as well as the single-serve Steam Meal varieties—Chicken Fettuccine, Sesame Chicken, Spinach and Artichoke Pasta and Roasted Garlic Chicken Farfalle.
