Review: Frozen Vegetables for Roasting

Review: Frozen Vegetables for Roasting

Note: I have not been paid for this review. It’s just my opinion on a product that can help people save some time making meals.

Product: PictSweet Farms Vegetables for Roasting

Price: Varies according to local prices, I paid $2.49

Servings per container: 1 cup serving size, usually about 5

Calories per serving: Depends on kind you buy, but ranges from 25-100

The bag give you a recommended way of roasting the vegetables. I mixed the red potatoes, onion, carrot and zucchini blend with the halved brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes and onions, taking out the onions.

The vegetables themselves are big and not all the same shape. They are roughly the same size, so your onion cooks at the same speed as the potatoes, carrots, etc.

I roasted my veggies in a shallow glass pan by coating the vegetables in the non-stock spray instead of oil and adding salt. I added some ground chicken burgers.

After 20 minutes of cooking, they didn’t look cooked, so I cooked the meal longer. After 25 minutes, the food didn’t have that roasted look but passed the fork test as they were soft in the middle.

While my kids were skeptical of the burgers, they devoured the veggies. They were really tasty.

I was most worried about the potatoes. Frozen potatoes usually don’t taste or feel right in your mouth after you cook them. But the red potatoes in this mix felt and tasted normal, like if you cut fresh potatoes yourself.

I can definitely see this as an addition to my options of quick foods to make.

Verdict: There are several other brands of frozen vegetables for roasting. I bought PictSweet Farms because the bags had more vegetables in each mix. I really like them and plan to buy them again.
