Green Giant Simply Steam Baby Vegetable Medley Review

Green Giant Simply Steam Baby Vegetable MedleyAs a big time veggie girl, I am a fan of pumping up the volume of any meal with low cal, high volume veggies. Even though fresh is the best option, living in the north limits that from time to time, therefore, I diligently pick up a bag or two of frozen veggies each week at the supermarket to toss into meals. I've never been a fan of high calorie veggies in sauce (visions of cheesy broccoli casserole still haunt me from my childhood) so I decided to try out the Green Giant Simply Steam Baby Vegetable Medley, which was described as being infused in a "light sauce".

I decided to try this meal starter over brown rice with some roasted chicken on the side. It was divine! The light sauce that coated the sugar snap peas, cauliflower and baby carrots gave both the rice and chicken flavor with no additional seasonings needed. In my opinion, it was the perfect, quick, healthy and filling meal ... as I was able to cook the chicken and rice on the stove while the veggies were steaming in the microwave (which took less than 10 minutes for everything).

Each 3/4 cup serving of Green Giant Simply Steam Baby Vegetable Medley provides 40 calories, 1 gram of total fat, 250 mg of sodium (11% of the daily value), 1 gram of protein and 9 grams of carbohydrates which includes 2 grams of fiber and 4 grams of sugars. The whole box has 3 servings, so, lets be honest here, I ate the whole box.

The ingredients are Sugar Snap Peas, Cauliflower and Baby Cut Carrots in a Sauce Containing Water, Sugar, Enzyme Modified Butter, Salt, Modified Corn Starch, Spice, Xanthan Gum, Parsley Flakes, Garlic Powder, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Lactose, Color Added, Natural Flavor.

I purchased this product on sale at my local grocer for $1.00 (it regularly retails for $1.99) - can't beat that kind of deal! I would WITHOUT a doubt stock up on these babies again.
