How do you like to turn up the flavor on your meals? For me, I love to add lots of extra veggies, seasonings, and often a little extra heat. I’m always looking for ways to put my own twist on things and make it my own.
Recently, I had the opportunity to try Green Giant Seasoned Steamers and was pleased to taste how well seasoned these already were. I chose the Backyard Grilled Potatoes, which come seasoned with bell peppers and spices in the bag, ready to cook!
The preparation couldn’t be easier, just pop in the microwave (directly from the freezer) and cook for about 8 minutes. After cooking, I just cut off the corner of the bag and poured them onto a serving dish.
The flavor of the potatoes straight out the bag was great! Eating this straight out of the bag would be no problem at all. I would definitely buy these again for those evenings when you’re a little short on time.
Since I do love to make things my own, I thought a creamy dressing would turn up the flavor even more! Topping the potatoes with this optional dressing adds a little something extra, when you’re in the mood to do something different.
- 3/4 cup non-dairy, egg-free (vegan) mayo
- 3/4 cup non-dairy sour cream
- 3 tablespoons green onions, diced
- 1 tablespoon tarragon
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. You may need to scrape down the sides to make sure it all blends thoroughly.
Another idea is to use these Backyard Grilled Potatoes as part of a brunch meal. Maybe paired with some Kale Sausage Balls?
