I’ve always been a fan of having frozen vegetables on hand.  They’re the type of pantry staple that can help even the most uninspired nights get a little sustenance.  So when Bird’s Eye® recently came out with the Steamfresh® Superfoods line, I was eager to see what it was all about.  Bird’s Eye has long been a brand I seek out in the frozen aisle at Kroger, and this new addition seemed right up my alley.  I mean, I’ll take all of the superfoods I can get, especially when frozen vegetables retain the same amount of nutrients as those bought fresh.

Big surprise here, but I was first inspired to try the Bird’s Eye® Steamfresh® Superfoods Quinoa & Spinach blend with my take on healthy stuffed peppers!  You know how much I love peppers.  I took a few plump poblanos, halving and deseeding them before throwing on the grill for five minutes—I prefer a bit of a crunch in my peppers, but if you like them more tender, keep them on the grill a few minutes more—before filling with the steamed blend straight out of the microwave.

I kid you not when I tell you that the meal took me no more than 10 minutes from start to finish.  I used some spicy white BBQ sauce I had in my fridge to drizzle on top, though I want to try cheese or even a spicy ranch next time too.  Voila!  So easy.  

The beauty with a blend like this is that its a great pantry staple that’s easy to mix into just about anything.  It would be great on top of a salad, paired with chicken, as part of a nourish bowl and so much more.  

I think you’ll find that the heartiness of the quinoa, paired with the steamed spinach, brown rice, cranberries & red peppers in a light red wine vinaigrette sauce is extremely satisfying however you fix it.  I’m beyond thrilled to find a good frozen staple like this one.  Have you tried anything of the collection yet?! Truly, MKR

  2. Grill the halved poblanos for five minutes. I like them to retain a bit of crunch, but if you like them more tender, grill them longer.
  3. Plate the Superfoods Blend, adding grilled peppers on top, and leaving the majority to fill and stuff the halved peppers.
  4. Lastly, drizzle preferred dressing on top. Here you can also add cheese if you want!
Notes
