This savory side dish is packed with flavor. Quick and easy to make with frozen mixed vegetables, a fresh tomato and seasonings.
Serve with a favorite meal or enjoy on a Meatless Monday with a slice of Homemade Self-Rising Cornbread.
Not sponsored. Just sharing a quality brand of frozen mixed vegetables that I like.
Benefits of Frozen Vegetables
Preparing side dishes with frozen vegetables saves precious time.
Frozen vegetables last longer than fresh.
Fresh vegetables don’t have a very long lifespan. They must be eaten within days of purchasing or soon after harvesting from the garden. Frozen vegetables last much longer.
I enjoy combining ingredients to create a burst of flavor. Mixed vegetables and diced tomatoes taste like vegetable soup without meat. Very filling and tastes good.
Tender black-eyed peas and diced tomatoes with a dash or two of hot sauce are also delicious.
A few days during the month, I eat ONLY vegetables. Nothing wrong with meat. In fact, I LOVE meat. I also LOVE veggies.
With that being said, I experiment in search of creative combinations to keep my food interesting.
