Ingredients for Mixed Vegetables Recipe

To make creamy mixed vegetables, you will need the following ingredients:

  1. Mixed vegetables: Normandy blend is best. It has a nice variety and includes carrots, zucchini, squash, broccoli, and cauliflower.
  2. Cream of mushroom soup: This soup has a rich and creamy texture with a savory umami flavor. It primarily tastes like mushrooms, but the flavor is mellowed and enhanced by the creamy base, which is often made with a mixture of butter, flour, and milk or cream.
  3. Chicken broth: This adds flavor but also prevents the veggies from drying out as they bake.
  4. Butter: Use unsalted butter so the final product is not too salty.
  5. Seasoning: Season the soup mixture with seasoned salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper.

How to Cook Frozen Mixed Vegetables

Preheat your oven to 375°F. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set it aside.

Add cream of mushroom soup, butter, and all of the seasonings including the seasoned salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper, into a large bowl.

Then use a whisk to mix everything together until it is fully incorporated and semi-smooth. Add mixed vegetables into the soup mixture and use a spoon to stir them together until combined. 

Once combined, pour the creamy vegetable mixture into the baking dish and cover it with aluminum foil. Then place the dish in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.

Remove the foil from the dish and bake for an additional 10-20 minutes, depending on how tender or crispy you like your veggies. 

Once they are to your liking, remove them from the oven and serve immediately.

Tips and variations for Mixed Vegetables

  • Want to use different vegetables? Feel free to use a different veggie mix or make your own combination. Try adding green beans, red onions, bell peppers, eggplant, mushrooms, and potatoes.
  • You can use fresh veggies for this recipe if you prefer, but be mindful of cooking times. Fresh vegetables will cook faster than frozen veggies. Also, ensure all the veggies are cut into equally small pieces so they cook at an even rate.
  • For seasoning, you can add fresh herbs (like rosemary, basil, dill, oregano, or parsley). Want a kick of spice? Add crushed red pepper flakes.
  • Like your veggies cheesy? Sprinkle on grated parmesan cheese in the last 10 minutes of cooking.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Reheat leftovers in the microwave.

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no set combination of vegetables for a mix but a typical vegetable mix may include cauliflower, carrots, green beans, corn, and peas.

When choosing vegetables to cook together, it’s important to consider their cooking times and complementary flavors and textures. Broccoli, cauliflower, squash, carrots, and peas all cook at relatively the same rate. However, using prepackaged frozen veggies eliminates the guesswork on your part.

Spruce up frozen mixed vegetables by adding your own spices and seasoning. There are many ways to prepare them. Saute them in olive oil and add them to fried rice. For roasted veggies, add them to a baking sheet in a single layer and bake at 400°F. You could also bake them in a casserole dish with cream of mushroom soup, like this recipe.

Frozen vegetables are typically frozen shortly after harvest, which preserves their nutrients better than canned mixed vegetables. Additionally, canned vegetables often contain added sodium or preservatives, making frozen mixed vegetables the better option.
