I bought this bag of Kashi 7 Grain Pilaf a while ago. In fact, I can’t even remember if I bought it at a conventional grocery store, or a specialty store. I was enticed by the convenience; 60-90 seconds in the microwave. I was saving it for a ‘rainy day’ when I needed a quick whole grain side dish, and didn’t have time to boil water. So, between work and finals and the holidays, the rainy day arrived and I happily reached for the pilaf in my cabinet.

I put the contents in a glass bowl, added a splash of water, and popped it in the microwave. And there you have it, 7 grain pilaf! I loved the nutty texture, but it did taste very plain. So the next night I added some Parmesan cheese, which definitely helped. This would have been great with some chopped veggies to make a quick grain salad.

But when I searched for the product on Kashi’s site to create a link, I couldn’t find it! Amazon says the plain pilaf in the bag is discontinued, although there are 2 other flavored varieties. So I had a product review for a product which was no longer available! I decided to share this anyway, because it is a great concept, and the perfect type of food to keep in your pantry for those crazy days.

Disclaimer: I was not compensated in any way for reviewing this product. I purchased this product at retail value.

  1. I bought several bags of this at a Cub Foods in Duluth Mn about 5 months ago…loved this product too. Used it as hot breakfast cereal and as a side grain with dinner. Can no longer find this precooked product, but really liked it a lot.
