You can never have too many vegetables. Backpacker's Pantry Vegetable Medley makes a great addition to any of our other meals, or tasty side item on its own. This simple to prepare dish combines Super Sweet Corn, Peas, and Carrots in a tasty lightly seasoned butter sauce. This dish is a low sodium side or snack as well. All you need to do is add one half cup of boiling water directly to the pouch, stir, and let sit for ten minutes.

These would be a wonderful addition to either of Backpacker's Pantry Mashed Potato flavors. Make it a meal!
