Hi there, I have just bought a new dish from the supermarket. It is the brand name of Green Giant and it is called “Essentials”. Fibre is the highlight and it has brocolli, beans, peppers, barley, etc. This is a 200 Gram bag of frozen veggies that you microwave and I am wondering how many servings of vegetables would be in it.
