We’re all agreed that cooking the Christmas dinner is THE most stressful part of the year, right?
Days of worry and hours of shopping, chopping and prepping, Mum finds herself forced to create a huge feast of rich food for her family and the inevitable guests. All while dealing with over-excited children running amok and acting as peacekeeper between feuding relatives, of course.
It can be stressful, but it’s worth it once you sit down at the Christmas table with your loved ones; however, wouldn’t it be nice if we had a hand during the prep?
We thought so and that’s why we embraced the lifesavers that are frozen vegetables last year. They really did make a difference.
No washing, no peeling, no long cooking time and no steam-filled kitchens as we try to soften chunks of carrot - this truly was a Christmas miracle.
Birds Eye has an extensive range of frozen vegetables, perfect for the Christmas dinner. From peas to sweetcorn and of course, the obligatory Brussels sprouts, you’re sorted for every family member’s preference.
As well as being time-efficient, frozen vegetables are picked when the produce is at its prime, meaning it’s as nutritious as can be. A guilt-free shortcut – yes please!
They’re much easier to store, taking up a little room in the freezer rather than lots of room in your jam-packed fridge. They also cook quicker than fresh veg, saving you prep and cooking time. You can even microwave them and have steaming hot veg in minutes!
So cut yourself some slack this Christmas and pay a visit to the frozen food section of your local supermarket.
