FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS



WHY ARE MY GREEN GIANT VEGGIE SPIRALS™ WATERY?
Most vegetables naturally have a high percentage of water — especially zucchini. Therefore, whether you sauté or microwave in the package, water will release from the vegetables during the cooking process. We recommend you drain the water in a strainer (just like pasta) and pat it dry with a paper towel. When sautéing, cook vegetables in pan until water is absorbed.
I JUST MICROWAVED A BAG OF GREEN GIANT VEGGIE SPIRALS™. HOW DO I OPEN THE PACKAGE?
On the top, right-hand corner of the packaging, there is a yellow tab that says “Easy Open” or “Pull Tab.” Gently pull the tab back to open the package. Remember, package will be HOT.
IS IT SAFE FOR ME TO EAT RIGHT OUT OF THE PACKAGING?
Absolutely! Once the package is cooked and opened properly, it transforms into a tray for your convenience.
HOW DO I PREVENT GREEN GIANT VEGGIE SPIRALS™ BUTTERNUT SQUASH FROM TURNING INTO MUSH?
Butternut squash is naturally fragile once cooked. We recommend microwaving this variety and following the heating instructions on package. When mixing in ingredients, toss and mix VERY gently.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO AVOID THE COLOR TRANSFER OF GREEN GIANT VEGGIE SPIRALS™ BEETS?
To minimize color transfer, blot Green Giant Veggie Spirals™ Beets with a paper towel before adding to your recipe.
