All of the entrees look very appealing but the Moroccan Stew would be the one I would want to try first!

Lamb saag or Chicken Briyani would be my choice because we make them at home and found them delicious.

I applaud the addition of Halal products to your inventory. Question: Can a product be both Halal & Kashrut (Kosher)? That would be a socially blessed event. I plan to have the Moroccan Lamb Stew served over פתיתים, Israeli couscous.

Had the chicken biriyani for suhoor (pre-fasting, early am meal). very easy to prepare and so tasty. I will be making these daily. tomorrow: chicken tikka masala

I had been eyeing the Lamb Vindaloo in the freezer case, just to say I tried vindaloo, but that Lamb Koftis looks interesting too.

These all sound fantastic! I would try the Lemongrass Basil Chicken first because I adore lemongrass. I'm also interested in trying this high-quality chicken.

I would love to try the Moroccan Stew (though all of the flavours love tasty) as I am trying to add lamb to my diet. I also want to be able to give my Mom a review on the dish ;) I don't eat either halal or kosher because of religious beliefs but I do like the requirement that they subscribe to.

“Halal food preparation is unsanitary and cruel to animals. I regret that I will no longer be a customer in your store. The corporate decision was unwise; halal food is “blessed” by an imam who includes in the prayer a curse for all non-muslims who consume it. I would feel very uncomfortable having to check each purchase there, and offering this alternative was a poor business choice”

What a beautiful, brave thing for a mainstream company to do, fighting for the cause of equality. Many thanks to Whole Foods for their dedication to fair practice. And I can't wait to try the lemongrass basil chcken - I love Thai flavors!!!!

The chicken tikka masala and the lemongrass basil chicken sound wonderful. I would definitely try those. I support any company that practices responsible farming. Can't wait to try your meals.

I would try the lemongrass basil chicken because its a traditional meal, however it has a kick to it by using lemongrass. Lemongrass is used but its not an essential spice in traditional cookings so I would love to try it!

It would be lemongrass basil chicken because I love chicken and basil, but wonder what it would taste like with lemongrass.

I love Tiki Masala. In a pinch, I would consider these frozen, processed meals even though they are not organic.

Hooray!! I hope this means you'll be selling halal products at your Omaha store. I'll try the Chicken pad thai first. I love pad thai and always have to order tofu at restaurants. I can't wait!!

I can't wait to try the Moroccan Lamb. I studied abroad in Morocco a couple years ago and I fell in love with the food there. Lamb is an integral part of ethnic Moroccan cuisine...I can just the smell of it cooking in the kitchen of my host family's home on couscous Friday mmm

They all sound good. I'd probably try the Moroccan Lamb Stew first although I prefer to buy frozen meat entrees without the carbs included. I'd rather make that course one of my choosing, and from scratch.

Originnally from Morocco, I think the moroccan lamb stew is really close to what our moms use to make at home.

I think what you guys are doing is amazing. This is especially helpful for those who don't have a halal market in their area / don't know how to cook. With Ramadan coming up tomorrow, this option is going to help thousands of Muslims. As a Muslim, I thank the good people at Whole Foods Market for having an open mind and not letting the skewed view of Muslims shut your doors to new (profitable) opportunities. Whole Foods Market has gained one more repeating customer and I'm sure it will gain many more because of this decision.
