Frozen Friday: Lean Cuisine - Roasted Turkey and Vegetables

Lean Cuisine's Roasted Turkey and Vegetables features a 200-calorie frozen meal with roasted turkey tenderloins with gravy and green beans with cranberries and slivered almonds.

I got an 8-ounce box from my local supermarket for $2 but they're normally $3.29.

Turkey's always been a frozen food favorite of mine even when I was eating the deli-meat-like budget Banquet versions. Since I otherwise only eat turkey on Thanksgiving, the frozen stuff is kinda special to me.
Lean Cuisine's version comes with a mushroom gravy that gives a different flavor than the typical kind and I appreciate that. The turkey was flavorful, a little dry but that's what the gravy's for.
The green beans turned out quite well with a good color and a firm texture. No sogginess here. The almonds and the cranberries add welcomed texture and flavor to keep the beans from getting too boring.
Overall, pretty good stuff with just enough nuances to set it apart from the standard. I usually want mashed potatoes with my turkey but I didn't miss it here because the vegetables turned out well. If we're being precise though, it's actually just "Roasted Turkey and Green Beans" though; there aren't any other vegetables.
