About the product
Aside from the mushrooms, this vegetable mixture is 100% organic. The mixture pairs well with our “Four Season Soup Stock” or our “Japanese Cooking Soup Stock,” and can be used in a variety of other dishes including simmered dishes or with roasted chicken. Taro, lotus root, burdock and bamboo shoots are staples of Japanese traditional cooking, and have many health benefits.
Taro, a somewhat sweet root vegetable, contains vitamin E, potassium, and magnesium (as well as fiber). Burdock and shiitake mushrooms contain antioxidants, and bamboo shoots contain copper, manganese, and vitamin B-6. String beans contain carotenoids, which are antioxidants and are also good for your vision, and vitamins K and C. Lotus root, too, is a source of vitamin C, and also contains phosphorus and potassium.
Their nutritional content aside, these vegetables also serve to jazz up any dish with their beautifully varied shapes and colors. Because Sugarlady’s vegetables are blanched before freezing, they remain vibrant and undamaged even if frozen for long periods. The vegetables come in easy-to-use ziplock bags for convenient storage.
How to prepare
For simmered dishes, season and heat your broth of choice. When it comes to a boil, add the frozen vegetable mix and heat at a medium temperature for 2 to 3 minutes. No need to defrost the vegetables ahead of time! After adding, put on a drop lid, lower the temperature, and simmer. The vegetables will thaw to perfection with no worries about undercooking or overcooking.This method can be used to create stews with any kind of flavoring you desire, whether that be Japanese-style, Western-style or anything else!
