Homemade healthy sides are best served… disguised

1 Feb

With about an hour to pull together dinner last night I certainly ended up bowling myself over with the help of Green Giant’s newer line of frozen vegetables, Health Blends. Toss these packets with whole wheat pasta or rice and you have a quick, tasteful way to bring color and nutrition to the table — of course that’s  if you don’t have time to throw a salad together. And no one really needs to learn you were not the creative genius behind these flavorful combinations of vegetables, do they?

The Healthy Weight blend I mixed with bow-tie pasta got great reviews, save for the kind tip that I add some salt. I swear I am the only person in this house who pays any attention to sodium! The medley includes sliced carrots, snow peas, black beans, and edamame in a light butter sauce — with just 90 calories and 240 mg sodium per 2/3 cup serving.
