Green Giant Veggie Blend-Ins are 100 percent vegetable purees – no additives or preservatives – making it easy and delicious to blend veggies into almost any meal, plus power-packed smoothies and baked goods such as cupcakes and brownies. Green Giant Veggie Blend-Ins have partnered with the #1 New York Times best-selling author Jessica Seinfeld to launch the 100% vegetable purees. In her book, Deceptively Delicious, Seinfeld writes about making her family's favorite meals better for them by adding homemade vegetable purees. "As much as I love to puree my own vegetables, let's face it, we are all short on time. Between shopping, cleaning, peeling, steaming and then pureeing, I needed a short cut. That's why I am so thrilled that Green Giant has done the work for us," Seinfeld said. "Veggie Blend-Ins are my new quick fix, go-to when I'm in a time crunch... they're so easy to blend into almost anything and add an extra dose of goodness where it didn't exist before."
