I don’t know if you’re like me but I love really good food and I like it pretty darn quick. Right now, my schedule just doesn’t allow for meals that take more than 30 min to prepare. So I’m always looking for nutritious, speedy options for meal time. And this weekend I stumbled upon another gem from my BFF Trader Joe’s- Frozen Sweet Potatoes. Given the fact that just prior to vacation I tossed out about 4 sweet potatoes that had started sprouting before I cooked them, this sounded like a fabulous idea.
Needless to say, I am in love. The sweet potatoes are pre-roasted, mashed, and frozen in little discs. You toss those babies in a pan with some water and they are ready in about 5 minutes. Actually, I added a tablespoon of coconut oil, water, and crushed red pepper and thought I had died and gone to heaven. So so so good. You could easily pair this with some grilled chicken, tofu, or even with cheese inside a tortilla for a spin on quesadillas.
The cool thing about these frozen veggies is that they are PURE sweet potatoes. NOTHING more. Whole veggies prepped and frozen at their prime which means they retain high nutrient value. Who can’t get behind that?
Do you have any quick nutritious products you’re in love with? If so, send it my way!
