Crisp, cold salads aren’t the only way to get your intake of vitamins and minerals. These classic winter recipes are hearty and warming – and they’re an easy way to add a nutritional boost to your meal plan. Simply include a few sneaky vegetables here and there that you – and the kids – won’t even notice!
Stir-fries are always a good way to get tasty veggies into your diet. This one includes broccoli, carrots and peas, all of which you can easily substitute with frozen vegetables from McCain’s wide range or use one of their frozen stir-fry mixes.
Trying to cut down on the carbs this winter? This recipe is both delicious and healthy – it’s a win-win! And if you don’t have fresh kale on hand, cook McCain Garden Spinach from frozen and mix with the other dumpling ingredients for a chicken-and-spinach variation.
A hearty casserole is always a winner in winter and this one comes with a delicious Mexican-inspired twist! Although it calls for tinned sweetcorn, you can also use frozen McCain Sweet Corn. Mix it with kidney beans, chicken, cheese and tortillas. This is one meal you won’t soon forget.
This classic is a must-have recipe to add to your winter collection. Keep McCain Diced Carrots, lamb or beef mince and McCain Diced Potato in your freezer for a hearty winter’s meal any night of the week.
Another low-carb favourite, this calls for cauliflower as a substitute for the rice used in the classic risotto. Frozen McCain Cauliflower Florets can be used instead of fresh, making it convenient to whip up this winter warmer whenever the craving strikes!
This is another one that can be made with freezer staples. Increase your vegetable intake even more by mashing McCain Butternut & Sweet Potato Mix, or keep it simple by mashing McCain Diced Potato if you don’t have sweet potatoes at hand. Whichever one you choose, the gravy will soak into the mash for a delicious mouthful with every bite.
Beautifully bright, utterly delicious and packed with nutrients, this soup blends McCain Broccoli Florets and Garden Peas with stock and cream. This is “green food” we promise the whole family will love.
