Apr 29 2022
These food supersizers are MAGICAL. Use them to bulk up your portions—mix these versatile ingredients with your favorite foods, or use them in HG recipes!


Why Mushrooms?

One large portabella mushroom or a cup of chopped mushrooms has roughly 20 calories, a gram of fiber, and nearly 2g protein. Seriously satisfying!

What Can They Supersize?

Cooked mushrooms are especially good in meat dishes as well as meatless versions of classic meat dishes. The texture and taste work perfectly. And mushroom caps make a filling alternative to pizza crust!


Why Zucchini?

A medium zucchini has around 30 calories, 2g fiber, and 2.5g protein. The taste is mild, so it takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it with.

What Can It Supersize?

Pasta! Whether it's thinly peeled like fettuccine or cut into slabs similar to lasagna noodles, zucchini does a masterful job of impersonating pasta. Use it in place of or in combination with real pasta.


Why Cauliflower?

A cup of chopped cauliflower has about 30 calories, 2g fiber, and 2g protein. And its expanding ability is the stuff of LEGEND.

What Can It Supersize?

Cauliflower is a go-to when it comes to bulking up starchy dishes—anything with potatoes, pasta, or rice. It blends in seamlessly…

Why Broccoli Cole Slaw?

This mix of shredded broccoli stems with other veggies clocks in at 25 calories, 3g fiber, and 2g protein per cup. Plus, it couldn't be more convenient. Pre-shredded, pre-washed... some can even be steamed in the bag!

What Can It Supersize?

Unexpected things! Keep reading, because the possibilities are endless.
