Simple Breakfast or Lunch Idea
This recipe is so simple and very nutritious. Plus kids love it because of the yummy and colorful veggies.
Simple Veggie Scrambled Egg for One
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 large egg
1 baby carrot, grated
1/4 red bell pepper, chopped in bite size pieces
1/4 green bell pepper, chopped in bite size pieces
1/2 small zucchini, cut in half circles (peel if desired)
Salt and pepper to taste
Wash, dry, grate and cut your veggies. In a small skillet heat olive oil over medium/high heat. Add in peppers, carrot and zucchini. Saute veggies for a few minutes, until they start to soften and brown. Do not overcook them, rather leave them with some crunchiness.
In a small bowl whisk egg with salt and pepper. Add over veggies and scramble, making sure the egg distributes evenly over the veggies.
This makes one serving, or you could divide it in two for small kids if served with toast or yogurt on the side. If you want to add more eggs you can, just add additional calories (check on the egg carton – the one in this recipe has 70 calories) to the nutritional facts.

Introducing Green Giant Veggie Snack Chips

Brace yourself for a giant surprise from the Jolly Green Giant — he’s now in the snack aisle! Introducing new Green Giant Veggie Snack Chips, available in two delicious varieties: Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips with Zesty Cheddar and Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips with Sea Salt!
Something new from Green Giant available in your local stores, the delicious Veggie Snack Chips that are full of flavor and perfect to snack on anytime.
Available in two flavors:
- Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips with Zesty Cheddar are crispy tortilla chips made with real vegetables like carrot, broccoli, and tomato, plus 17g of whole grain.
- Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips with Sea Salt are made with real sweet potatoes and 14g of whole grain, with 40% less fat than regular potato chips.
We recently got a chance to try both new flavors and loved the taste. They are made with veggies, but don’t really taste like the classic sweet potato, carrot, broccoli or tomato chips. The Tortilla Chips are great with a lot of Zesty Cheddar in every bite. The Sweet Potato ones don’t really taste like any other sweet potato chips. They resemble the Sun chips a lot and you can taste the multigrain in them more than the sweet potato. The sea salt gives them a nice kick too.
Overall we liked both flavors and look forward to more from Green Giant because we love their veggies and products.
Both flavors of the new Green Giant Veggie Snack Chips available in your local stores in the snacks section!

Quick and Easy Veggie Couscous Cakes
Quick and easy to make, perfect as a side dish or on their own.
Veggie Couscous Cakes
2 cups couscous, cooked
1 cup broccoli florets, chopped
1 red bell pepper (1 cup cut), cut in bite size pieces
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil
Make couscous according to the box instructions. When done, transfer the cooked couscous to a bowl and let it cool while you prepare veggies. Wash and cut broccoli and pepper. Add them to the bowl with couscous. In a small bowl mix eggs, add parsley, paprika, garlic, salt and pepper to it. Mix. Add egg to the bowl with couscous and veggies. Mix everything well so that the couscous, veggies and eggs are evenly distributed throughout.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. With damp hands, form the couscous mixture into 6 patties about 1 to 1 and 1/2 inch thick or so. Carefully place the couscous cakes in the pan and cook until golden, turning once, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
Remove from the heat and serve. You can serve them with salad or by themselves!
