Creamy Primavera Risotto Cakes

As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program I was selected to try out the new Birds Eye Chef's Favorites. It's a line up of steam fresh and ready to serve veggies in minutes. I'm a big fan of steam fresh veggies and have frequently tried them before. My hubby isn't a big veggie fan so if I can have a bag that I can steam and save the leftovers for the next night I'm all for it.

I tried the Creamy Primavera Risotto. I've actually never had Risotto so I tried half of it as is - out of the bag after I had steamed it. It was good but nothing that knocked my socks off. The second half I made into a cake after it had cooled. I put a little olive oil in a frying pan and fried the cake over medium heat for 10-15 minutes, flipping it half way through. I definetely liked his option better as it added a little crunch to it. If you are looking for a healthy option this might not be for you. Make sure you read the labels on the back of these bags!

Look for this product in your grocery freezer in September!
