Green Giant™ Fresh Introduces Six New Veggie Bowls
SALINAS, CA - Cauliflower has been the star of the veggie category as of late, incorporated in unconventional ways like rice or pizza crust. Green Giant™ Fresh, a leading innovator in fresh value-added vegetables, is utilizing its newly-released Cauliflower Crumbles® in its latest line of offerings. A week ago, the company introduced a convenient line of easy-to-prepare Veggie Bowls that include great-tasting flavors and hunger-crushing ingredients in each meal.
“Consumers are demanding more plant-based alternatives at every meal occasion and we’ve created a satisfyingly complete option that can be prepared within a few minutes,” said Riley Hathaway, Research and Development Manager. “Our new recipes reflect the time and taste testing we’ve invested to deliver a hearty and flavorful crunch in every bite.”
Built around the brand’s first-to-market Cauliflower Crumbles, the bowls also feature regionally-inspired sauces to create an authentic ready-to-go meal in minutes. According to a press release, Green Giant Veggie Bowls are available in the refrigerated produce section at grocers nationwide and sold at a suggested retail price of $3.99 per bowl.
All the Veggie Bowls are vegetarian and packaged in a microwave-safe container that now includes a fork. The line includes six crave-able and on-trend varieties:
- (NEW) Korean BBQ: featuring Cauliflower Crumbles, onion, carrots, celery, and broccoli in a sweet heat bulgogi sauce with crispy noodles
- (NEW) Harvest: featuring Cauliflower Crumbles, sweet potato, and celery in a tangy citrus-garlic sauce with dried cranberries, pepitas, and crumbled feta cheese
