Supermarket frozen vegetables
After reading through the "what not to buy" at Trader Joe's I started thinking about what I keep on hand in my freezer. This is the inventory:
pearl onions (mixed with peas, added to beef stew)
chopped spinach (specific recipes)
artichoke hearts (specific recipe)
mixed veggies (specific recipe)
French cut green beans (in the winter) - I learned how to cook these when we lived in Holland. The Dutch sell very convenient fresh pre-chopped/cut veggies. Different than in the U.S. The seasonings recommended on the Frenched green beans were butter, nutmeg and white pepper. So, I microwave the beans covered with no added liquid, al dente. Then add the butter and a pinch of both spices.
(I have read good things about TJ's chopped frozen leeks but I don't get to TJ's very often.)
