This week is another healthy addition in the grocery item of the week excitement. We have been buying these bags of goodness for a while now and I must say they actually taste good and are simple to prepare. Great for a quick vegetable as a side dish or adding into a casserole at the last minute.
The name says it all. Healthful, delicious vegetables steamed to perfection in just minutes – in your microwave. From freezer to table, quickly and effortlessly. No water, no chopping, no draining, no clean-up. It’s that easy.
The secret is in the bag. The innovative Omstead Steam Ease™ pouch works like a miniature pressure cooker. During cooking in the microwave, steam pressure builds up and the pouch inflates. Thanks to micro-pore technology, the pouch slowly releases steam while cooking, bringing out all of the colour, texture and taste of perfectly steamed vegetables every time.
You can’t get closer to fresh. Simply put, Omstead Steam Ease™ vegetables taste great – like steamed fresh vegetables. No matter what season it is, you can be enjoying the taste of your favourite steamed vegetables in minutes.
Health-Check program. Omstead Steam Ease™ products are the first frozen steamed vegetables in Canada to participate in the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s Health Check program.
