Breaking Chews: Brand-New Swaps!

Thanks to Green Giant, it’s never been easier (or more delicious!) to get your daily veggies. Our favorite vegetable brand continues to reduce the need for starchy carbs, and we couldn’t be more grateful!

Introducing THREE new veggie-based swaps: gnocchi, hash browns, and bacon & cheese tots! Zero potatoes or artificial flavors in sight. Get the details, plus a cash-saving coupon and recipe ideas.

These freezer finds are rolling out now… Look for them at Walmart and other major grocery retailers, or click to locate!

Green Giant Cauliflower Gnocchi

1 cup: 220 - 260 calories, 1 - 1.5g total fat (0g sat. fat), 380 - 490mg sodium, 38 - 45g carbs, 5 - 7g fiber, 13 - 18g sugars, 8 - 11g protein -- SmartPoints® value 7 - 9*

This delicious spin on the Italian classic is made with 40% vegetables, and it’s 100% delicious. The portion size is large, the flavor is incredible, and the texture is perfect. Plus, check out all the protein! In both Original and Cauliflower & Spinach, these li’l pillows of yumminess are already a staple in our freezer. Heat ‘em up and top with marinara. (P.S. They’re fantastic cooked in an air fryer!)

Green Giant Veggie Hash Browns

2 patties: 140 calories, 8g total fat (2g sat. fat), 340mg sodium, 12g carbs, 2g fiber, 1 - 2g sugars, 5g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4 - 5*

Breakfast just got better… These crispy hash browns are made with a whopping 75% vegetables. They’re so hearty, you might not believe they’re potato free… but they totally are! Serve ‘em up with an egg scramble for a morning meal, or snack on ‘em midday -- only 70 calories each! Choose from Cauliflower and Broccoli & Cauliflower (or don’t choose and get them BOTH).

Green Giant Cauliflower, Cheese & Bacon Veggie Tots

About 6 pieces: 150 calories, 9g total fat (2g sat. fat), 420mg sodium, 14g carbs, 5g fiber, 2g sugars, 4g protein -- SmartPoints® value 5* 

We were already huge fans of Green Giant’s line of Veggie Tots, and now the GG gurus have one-upped themselves with this new addition! These must-try tots contain a full serving of cauliflower, plus real cheddar and bacon. They’re delicious enough to snack on solo, but they’re also excellent served “tot-cho” style: topped with reduced-fat cheddar, light sour cream, and salsa. Mmmmm!
