“ Brand: Asda / Type: Other Vegetables „
I love fruit and vegetables but living alone means I struggle to get through fresh stuff from time to time. I never sit and eat a hole cabbage and the likes and get sick of wasting stuff which is recently why I bought some frozen vegetables, ready prepared from Asda. Sprouts is not one of my favourite vegetable choices however the other day I was planning a nice Sunday roast for me and my mate and so bought a bag of these as they only cost £1.00 for a large looking bag. The Packaging: The sprouts come in a green and black plastic bag with a photograph of the sprouts on the front of it and we are told that they are Asda 'Chosen By You' Button Sprouts and that they weight 1kg. On the back of the bag other information is listed such as ingredients (100% sprouts!), we are told how to cook them, there is a nutritional chart listed and contact details for Asda are given. The packaging is simple and easy to understand, easy to open but you need a clip or something to reseal the bag up with or they go all over the place! The Sprouts: Rich dark green in colour these are really small sprouts and to cook them you simply cook them in a pan of water for a bout 3 1/2 minutes, alternatively you can cook them in the microwave too (also from frozen) in about the same time. You can of course steam them to if you wish to though the timings for this isn't given! I always simmer mine on the hob, I found that even from frozen they flowed out of the bag easily and of course I didn't have to wash them, peel the outer leaves off or even score them but simply was left only to cook them up which was simple to do of course! Both me and my friend liked these sprouts alot. They tasted as fresh as what fresh ones do to us, they were fuss free and wernt one bit soggy or anything adverse like that. They were nice and bite size, a nice rich colour and didn't taste one bit earthy and at a pound a bag I thought these were great!
