Trader Joe's Creamed Greens  with Brussels Sprouts, Kale & Parmesan Cheese

The Freezer Meal Frenzy staffers may enjoy junk food from time to time, but we’ve never been reluctant to scarf down veggies. From carrots to cucumbers, we’ve raved over many veggie dishes.

That said, we have no complaints about combining veggies with less healthy ingredients, like a large helping of cheese! So the Trader Joe’s Creamed Greens with Brussels Sprouts, Kale & Parmesan Cheese is right up our alley.

There are two ways to heat these greens: you can nuke them in the microwave for 5 to 6 minutes, or you can heat them in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes. If you’re not pressed for time, we’d recommend the oven method. It’ll give you the crispy brown edges you can see in the image below.
