What stays in season year-round, is high in fiber, and has just as many nutrients (or more) than fresh veggies? If you guessed frozen vegetables, you're right!
Long seen as inferior to fresh, veggies like frozen broccoli have gotten a bad rap for no good reason. Whether it's misinformation about vitamin content or incorrect cooking methods that can turn them to mush, it's time to take a fresh look at frozen broccoli, frozen peas, frozen corn, frozen potatoes, frozen mixed veggies, and more.
Did you know that frozen vegetables prepared in an air fryer can crisp up just as wonderfully as fresh? And because air frying dries out the moisture in frozen veggies, they won't get mushy.
Shake some ranch-flavored dry seasoning on frozen broccoli and air fry or oven roast for a kid-pleasing snack or side dish. Pair it with sweet potato fries, crispy tater tots, or veggie fries from brands like Ore-Ida, Signature SELECT, and Green Giant to make meal-time fun and easy. The best way to make sure your family eats their veggies is to have a freezer full of them. Stock up at Safeway and get cooking today.
