Confession time: I am NOT good at planning dinner ahead of time.
I’m talking, it’s 5:30 and we usually eat at 6:00, what the heck should I make, kind of not planning.
Result? We eat spaghetti at least once a week. (Hence, the spaghetti casserole I came up with…)
It also results in the same boring side dishes night after night.
That’s one reason I was excited to try Green Giant Seasoned Steamers when I first heard about them. Finally a sauce-free frozen vegetable with a little zip to excite the taste buds! Green Giant has developed 6 tantalizing flavors to choose from: Mediterranean Blend, Tuscan Seasoned Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts with Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper, Honey Roasted Sweet Corn, Honey Dijon Carrots and Backyard Grilled Potatoes.
This past week, as I was searching the freezer for inspiration, I saw the bag of Tuscan Seasoned Broccoli and pulled it out. I have to say, being able to cook the veggies right in their bag almost made me feel guilty because of how easy it was.
In minutes I had a delicious side dish prepared for my family. (The pork chops that I pulled out of the freezer were another issue…)
And the critics?
My husband and daughter loved it! (My husband’s actual words were, “This is good!!”)
My son is more the “don’t put anything on my food” kind of guy. He ate it, but only if I held it for him because he didn’t want to touch the seasoning with his 3 year-old picky little fingers. (After all, you can’t expect him to use a fork to eat “trees.” Anyone else’s kid like that?)
The next time I go to the store I’m planning to pick up a package of the Mediterranean Blend; it definitely sounds like a step up from our usual canned green beans or corn…

My husband is the cook of the family, so if he’s not around it’s a lot of last minute spaghetti type dinners. These steamers look great.
Thanks for visiting my blog on my SITS Day!
My husband is the cook on the weekends… I need to be a better cook during the week, and these veggies might just help that a bit.

Frozen veggies are my friend in the winter! But like your son, I usually prefer them plain or mixed with a sauce I make myself.
I usually like mine plain, too. But these were seasoned just the right amount — and pretty yummy!

We still have trouble getting my 5 year old to eat with a fork!
I’m a last minute planner for dinner, too. These vegetables sound yummy!
LOL- You’ll notice my 5 year-old was shoving the broccoli in with her fingers, too. She just wasn’t concerned about the seasoning getting on her fingers like her brother was. 🙂

I’ll take steamed veggies over canned any day 🙂 Thanks! 🙂
I just get tired of the same canned veggies…. We get stuck in a rut. And frozen ones just tasted better!
I got my coupon for this but haven’t gotten it yet. Sounds good!
We were pretty happy with the one we tried.
