I love vegetables. Fresh or frozen, any time of year, I'd take a bowl of broccoli with red peppers or an heirloom tomato over just about any other food.
Trader Joe's has an awesome frozen vegetable blend that is a fall-and-winter staple in my house. Harvest Hodgepodge is a one-pound bag of broccoli, carrots, baby corn, mushrooms, water chestnuts, sugar snap peas, red peppers, and onions. This is the best mix of frozen vegetables. And, at $1.99 a bag, it's a pretty affordable veg mix.
I keep a bag in the freezer at work for those days when my lunch from home doesn't seem filling enough. I keep a couple of bags at home for the nights when I'm too tired to chop vegetables but want stir-fry.
Confession: I pick out the baby corn.
Unlike most vegetable blends I find at the regular grocery store, this one is not overwhelmed by oceans of butter or cheese sauce. (Ever read the ingredients on those? There's usually no butter or cheese to be found.) Harvest Hodgepodge is just vegetables, straight up.
