A kale and spinach celebration cake is in order! Cookin' Greens celebrates its 5th year

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 23, 2013) - To honour Cookin' Greens 5th birthday, the company celebrated with the launch of two new exciting frozen vegetable products, the Artist's Mix and Frozen Artichoke Heart Quarters.

As pretty as a painter's palette, Cookin Green's new Artist's Mix is a blend of greens and yellows that rival a beautiful autumn day. The blend includes chopped spinach, kale, mustard greens, yellow squash and onion, and makes the perfect side dish when cooked simply in a ribbon of olive oil and chopped garlic. Once cooked, the blend of vegetables can also be used as a pizza topping, sandwich stuffer, or in soup, stew, sushi, wraps or omelettes. The possibilities are limitless!

Cookin' Green's new Artichoke Hearts are the perfect solution for those pesky, hard-to-cut and hard-to cook whole artichokes. Already at the heart of it and quartered, these individually-quick frozen artichokes take the prep work out of the kitchen, and are ideal for dips, antipasto platters, pizza toppings, sauces and stir-fries. Plus, with only 45 milligrams of sodium per half cup, they have a lot less salt than canned or jarred artichokes - which can have up to 460 mg sodium per half cup serving.

"Sodium is a concern for many Canadians, especially for people with high blood pressure" said Toby Davidson, President and Founder of the Cookin' Greens brand. "The only ingredient on the package is...artichokes."

All Cookin' Green products are GMO-FREE and GLUTEN-FREE, but most importantly - they taste amazing. These products are definitely designed for all those foodies out there - not just the health conscious consumer.

Not only is the product inside the frozen artichoke bag innovative and on-trend, but the packaging is as well - check out the unique VELCRO® Reclosable feature - it works to keep the vegetables fresh and is a first in the frozen veggie aisle.

Let's party!

The Cookin' Greens celebration festivities included a whole wheat thin-crust pizza with artichokes and spinach; Artist Mix sushi rolls; mini spanakopita stuffed with kale and feta; and one very unique - and very green - spinach, kale, carrot and pumpkin cake with Greens-infused frosting.
