Frozen Vegetables

Vegetable salad

Vegetables are best when fresh, but you can’t always get fresh veggies. Fresh veggies also can be expensive when they are not in season. Frozen veggies are easy to use and cheaper than some fresh veggies.  Many frozen veggies come in bags so you can just take out what you want and put the rest back into the freezer. Mixed frozen veggies are great for stir-fry, stew, or soups.

Cooking Frozen Vegetables


Regular Cooking


  1. Put water into a pot. Bring the water to a boil and add the veggies.
  2. The cold veggies will cool the water down. Let the water return to a boil, then let the veggies cook for 2 to 8 minutes.
  3. Drain the water. Season to taste, but don’t use too much salt and butter.

Steam Cooking

  1. Place the frozen veggies in a steamer basket or colander over boiling water. Cook for 2 to 8 minutes, or until they are done the way you like them.
  2. Carefully lift the basket out of the pan. Season to taste, being careful not add too much salt or butter.

Microwave Cooking

  1. Find a microwave-safe dish and put frozen vegetables in it. Add one tablespoon of water to each cup of vegetables.
  2. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap.
  3. Cook on high for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring once or twice until your veggies are done the way you like them. Be careful of the steam when you uncover the veggies. Season to taste.
