Green Giant Simply Steam Garden Vegetable Medley has sugar snap peas, roasted potatoes, red peppers & garden herbs, and since the photo on.the box looked so inviting, I decided to try it.
Just like the other Green Giant Simply Steam varietes reviewed (like the Green Giant Simply Steam Healthy Weight Vegetable Medley and Green Giant Simply Steam Baby Vegetable Medley), this one was delicious. The steaming bag is easy to manipulate and facilitates quick prep and clean-up. The vegetable medley turned out nicely - not too soft - and I enjoyed the garlic and parsley seasoning but could have done without the viscous margarine base. Overall, though, it was a pleasant eating experience.

I paid $1.16 for an 8 ounce box at Target. Though I'm not a big fan of coating vegetables with oil, these vegetables were pretty tasty. I was especially pleased with how well the potatoes turned out since they get too soft easily. This product makes a great snack or side dish for a quick meal.
