Spice Up Your Next Bag of Veggie Wedgies!

Although we created Veggie Wedgies to make vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower more appealing to kids, we know that adults enjoy eating Veggie Wedgies too! Here at Peas HQ, we created our own low calorie, signature spice topping which we toss our Veggie Wedgies in. If you want to eat them like the pro's do, try this reci-pea for our "ranch" inspired spice blend (the kids will love it too)!

Veggie Wedgie Signature Spice Blend

  • 1 tsp dried parsley, crushed
    (substitute with 2 tsp minced fresh parsley)
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt (to taste)
  • 1 pinch black pepper (optional)
  • 1 bag of Peas of Mind Veggie Wedgies
    Carrot, Cauliflower, or Broccoli fries
  • cooking spray, olive oil preferred
  • 1 Tbl grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven or toaster oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Place the desired amount of frozen Veggie Wedgies in a large bowl. Spray with cooking spray and toss to coat lightly. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake as directed, 10-12 minutes, turning the fries once about halfway through the bake.

In a small bowl, combine the parsley, dill, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mix.

When your Veggie Wedgies have browned nicely, transfer them back to the oily bowl. Toss the fries with a proportional amount of spice blend. For example, if you baked half a bag of fries, use half of the spice blend, reserving the rest for when you back the remainder of the fries. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and gobble them down!
