The folks at Birds Eye are passionate about finding innovative ways to enjoy vegetables, which is why they’ve recently introduced their line of Protein Blends. And, let me tell you, these whole grain, protein, and veggie blends are all-around winners! Each variety contains protein-packed veggies, like lentils, white beans, edamame, peas and black beans. These protein-rich ingredients, combined with whole grains, provide between 12 and 17 grams of fiber per serving! Here’s a look at what you can expect with each style: California Style: whole grains, lentils, peas, broccoli, shelled edamame and sauce. Serve hot as a side dish or as a base for soups! Italian Style: whole grains, lentils, spinach, broccoli, white beans, and sauce. Serve hot as a side dish, or serve cold and mix it into a salad! Southwest Style: whole grains, black beans, corn, lentils, red bell peppers, and sauce. Serve hot in Mexican dishes, skillet meals, omelets, and soups, or serve cold as a salsa dip!
