1). They don’t expire as quickly as fresh produce. 

This makes them really easy to have them on hand. Just buy them at the grocery store, throw them in the freezer, and don’t worry about them! Frozen produce takes several months to expire so you don’t need to worry about consuming it quickly like fresh produce or even worse it going bad quickly and having to toss it..

2). Frozen produce is relatively cheap. 

In comparison to fresh produce, frozen produce tends to be the more affordable option. As previously stated, it takes longer to expire so there is a lesser chance of wasting frozen produce in comparison to fresh produce.

3). Frozen produce have high nutritional content

Frozen produce are picked at their peak ripeness, which is typically when the produce is at its maximum nutritional content. On the other hand, fresh produce is often picked before it’s ripe so that it doesn’t ripen until it sits on the store shelves.

Now that you’re as excited about frozen produce as I am, let’s get to the recipe…
