Despite what your kids may think, broccoli is one of the most popular vegetables in the USA. With its high concentration of vitamins and minerals, and versatility for being delicious in a wide range of recipes, vegetable medley recipes are a great choice for getting your recommended daily servings of vegetables.
The same hold true for green peas. Yes, it you overcook them they become mushy and lose some of their nutritional value, but peas are another delicious and easy addition to many menu choices. In addition, growing peas is an important part of sustainable farming because they are considered a “nitrogen fixing” crop that helps to increases beneficial nitrogen in the soil. With peas, you feed your body and the soil at the same time!
Carrots are jam-packed with beta-carotene, antioxidants, and a wide variety of healthy nutrients. Carrots are naturally sweet (which makes them a popular choice for those who don’t typically enjoy veggies) and when roasted, take on an almost candy-like flavor. When combined with peas and broccoli in Tommy’s Vegetable Medley, you get lots of delicious flavor with a powerful dose of good nutrition.
