Our Earth Exotics™ Baby Corn Vegetable Trio has been selected to give you the best mixture of Fresh Vegetables for your table. Our mixture includes Snow Peas, Baby Zucchini Squash and Fresh Baby Corn. This mixture is very unique in that it includes Fresh Baby Corn which is a difficult product to secure year around, High in Vitamin C, Zero Fat and only 25 calories per serving. Baby Zucchini Squash are more than 95% water, and so offer only a modest amount of nutrients. The high water content, however, means that they are very low in calories (about 19 per cup of raw sliced squash). In addition, they are inexpensive and can be eaten raw or cooked. Snow Peas add a sweetness to the mix that can’t be beat.
Our Earth Exotics™ packaging is unique and is designed for ease of use and with the intent of creating very little waste. Although our packaging is microwave capable, it is not the optimal way to prepare vegetables. We highly encourage you to try other cooking methods such as roasting, sautéing, steaming, and even boiling in some cases. You will find that the vegetables will have a better texture and flavor by utilizing some of these tried and true cooking methods, and will leave you with a better eating experience.
