Win a vegetable steamer with Canned Food UK
With the days getting lighter, it can only signify one thing - spring is on its way! To celebrate, Canned Food UK is giving away one vegetable steamer which will be perfect for preparing all of your spring vegetables this season.
During the winter months, there’s nothing we love more than a warming, hearty dish, but as the days start to get brighter, why not look to lighten up your meal time with some spring vegetables?
Why not try Canned Food UK’s Salmon and Broccoli Quiche? This light meal is so nutritious and uses a combination of fresh and canned ingredients. Instead of boiling the fresh broccoli, you can steam it using your new vegetable steamer, plus the canned salmon provides an excellent source of omega 3 fats, essential for maintaining a healthy heart.
Of course, the great thing about canned food is that it’s ready and available to use all year round, so there’s no need to wait for ingredients to ‘come into season’. As part of the canning process, fruit and veg are picked at the most optimum time and taken to the cannery, where the ingredients are sealed and then cooked in the can, so all the goodness and nutrients get locked in.
Take, as an example, our Sweet and Sour Vegetable Stir Fry, which is bursting with vegetables. It contains a selection of canned vegetables including baby corn and carrots, which aren’t typically in season in the UK until later in the year. By using canned vegetables, this dish is so simple to create and vegetables that are canned in water or in its own juice still count towards your all-important 5-A-DAY recommended daily intake.
