Okay. I am a big baby!
When asked if I’d like to test a product, I can’t say no.
So when the opportunity came through FoodBuzz to test some Bird’s Eye products, naturally I volunteered.
I received 4 bags of new vegetable products – Steamfresh Chef’s Favorites – creamed spinach, roasted potatoes with green beans, primavera vegetable risotto and mushroom and green bean risotto.
Okay. So first I tried the roasted potatoes with green beans. I am sorry Bird’s Eye, it was just gross.
I was really reluctant to try again, but the Primavera Vegetable Risotto was singing to me.
I had oven roasted salmon slated for dinner ad as usual was at a total loss for a side. Looking at the bag of risotto I thought it would be a perfect complement.
It was wonderful! The vegetables were tender and not mushy, they still had shape and color and a true freshness to them. I don’t know what sort of rice they used, but it was perfectly cooked. Perfectly seasoned. It says lightly sauced, but it was not overly sauced or seasoned. Creamy. Tender. Delicious! Even my husband, Mr. Picky, loved it – actually, he thought I made it from scratch!
This is a great go to for rushed nights when you still want something warm and wonderful with your dinner!
