When you are looking for a new twist on a veggie side dish, check out one of our favorites: Trader Joe’s Bean So Green.
This is a wonderful mixture of veggies: green beans, cauliflower, broccoli, peas, romanesco and…wait for it….. garlic butter.
What the heck is romanesco, you ask?? (don’t worry I am a professional… and I had to Google it to figure it out :)
It turns out that romanesco is a type of broccoli that appears to be a sort a mixture between cauliflower and broccoli that is very popular in Italy.
If you look closely on the package, you can see some of the romanesco on the front part of the photo, it sorta resembles a shell? (hint: near the bottom)
Anyway this vegetable mixture is absolutely delicious and quick to make. You just need to pour it into a skillet, and add a few tablespoons of water and heat on medium, until all the veggies are warm/hot and the butter sauce is melted. YUM! What I like best is that it all heats up quickly and the veggies are still nice and crisp and the garlic butter just adds a special touch to the vegetable mixture.
Trader Joe’s Bean So Green is excellent served with roasted chicken or fish. We like to serve it up with some rice as well. This is highly recommended for new cooks, as it would “jazz up” an otherwise plain/ easy meal and turn it into something special…. date night maybe??
We hope that you get a chance to try out this frozen vegetable mixture. Let us know what you think!
