Moms you know how much of a struggle it can be to get the kids to eat their vegetables. My family and I recently switched to a vegetarian based diet. In doing so we have opened our entire world up to a new way of eating. Going vegetarian has made us look differently at the foods that we have been eating. We have been consistently adding more vegetables into our diets and are always up to trying new things on this food adventure.
Green Giant Veggie Tots are perfect for busy families. Not only are they convenient with how quick they are to prepare but you are also getting veggie goodness in each poppable bite. Green Giant’s newest flavors of Veggie Tots in Corn or Sweet Potato & Cauliflower are both pretty delicious. I like having this quick dinner option tucked away in the freezer for those busy weeknights when I need to get something on the dinner table fast. Green Giant Veggie Tots can be paired with a variety of different main dishes from breakfast to dinner even snack time.
Here in the south, particularly at BBQ restaurants, they serve a side dish commonly known as corn nuggets which are essentially deep fried creamed corn. One bite of the new Green Giant Corn Veggie Tots and it was like I had stepped into one of my favorite restaurants. The family unanimously agreed that the Green Giant Corn Veggie Tots were a winner. I like that I can get that restaurant quality taste conveniently at home so we can indulge in a family favorite without going out to eat. Because Green Giant Veggie Tots are baked and not fried you are skipping the grease and enjoying the veggie goodness.
Speaking of vegetable goodness, did you know that you could turn Green Giant Veggie Tots into a sweet treat? As soon as I saw that the Green Giant Veggie Tots came in a sweet potato and cauliflower flavor I knew that I wanted to turn them into a sweet, poppable treat. Whenever I eat a baked sweet potato I love to load it up with brown sugar and cinnamon to the point that it practically tastes like dessert. Turning Green Giant Sweet Potato & Cauliflower Veggie Tots from a savory side dish into a sweet treat is so simple & easy that you’ll want to make them for both snack time and dessert.
