Trader Joe's Stir-Fry Vegetables

I've been dabbling more in the frozen vegetable world, so when I spotted Trader Joe's Stir-Fry Vegetables I opted to pick up a package to give a whirl. I love a good stir fry, but sometimes getting all of the appropriate vegetables together can be a little bit of a hassle particularly if I'm making a meal for just myself.
For a quick meal one night I decided to heat up the stir-fry vegetables as a side alongside some chicken. I followed the package directions, opting to heat the veggies through in the microwave. They turned out perfectly, not overcooked and were a pretty good consistency. The combination of the vegetables was perfect (pea pods, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, soybeans, water chestnuts, carrots, mushrooms) - allowing each vegetable to shine while providing sustenance with some bite.

I paired my meals alongside some steamed brown rice, while I also just ate some of the vegetables with chicken that was drizzled with Trader Joe's Sriracha Roasted Garlic BBQ Sauce.  Overall I am quite a fan of this vegetable stir-fry blend because it's simple, satisfying and a great addition to any dish.
A serving, 1 cup, is 45 calories or 1 points plus values.
