Have a Plant-Based Diet with Great-Tasting Sous Vide Veggies via “Straight from the Root” Brand!

It’s Memorial Day and the last thing I would want to do is go to the market if I forgot to buy or ran out of a necessary part of today’s meal. Actually that’s my feeling about every single meal that I make– if I forgot to buy it, I am unhappy but unless it’s crucial to the meal, I will sub in something- particularly if it’s something that requires a long time to cook which is often entrees and vegetables. While I have a microwave, a great oven, and an air-fryer, those are all great tools but when push comes to shove, I don’t want to wait for 20-30 minutes to get potatoes, winter squash or other root veggies cooked even if I am using those tools. Recently I found the perfect answer to this “problem”, in the refrigerated section of the produce area of my favorite markets. The perfect solution is Straight from the Root Vegetables!

Disclosure: I was provided samples of these great vegetable products for a review. The samples have made it possible for me to give you a honest review of my experiences with this brand. Getting samples does not impair my ability to be honest and thoughtful in my reviews. Samples enable my reviews because I got to try all of the vegetables available at the time I received them.

 

What is/are SFTR Vegetables:

Straight From The Root provides you with convenient, preservative-free, and fresh produce. We care about what we put into our bodies and want to help everyone else who is looking for good quality food to no longer have to worry about the hassle and mess it takes to prepare some of the most delicious vegetables on this earth.

We utilize the sous vide cooking method so all our products maintain all of their fresh volume, vitamins, and flavor. Most cooking methods require vegetables to be cooked at high temperatures causing them to lose up to 30% of their nutrients. We did not like that fact, so we searched all over the world to find the perfect way to maintain the full integrity of our vegetables. The sous vide method provided the answer to this problem. Every time you open a package of Straight from the Root vegetables, you can expect the best quality, taste, and texture without using any added oils or spices.
Straight from the Root is here to make your life healthier and easier. Make sure to post on our social media pages your favorite ways to use our products.

Our Mission:
To help busy individuals/parents put perfectly cooked produce on the table in less time.
Our veggies can be eaten directly from the package cold, or they can be eaten warm with a simple 90-second reheat. The choice is yours!
To find us in stores, please visit our Store Locator.

Why Sous Vide?

This classic European cooking method keeps all of the vegetables vital nutrients intact. (Traditional cooking methods like boiling and steaming typically cause nutrient loss of up to 30%.)

In addition, the vegetables are cooked solely in their own juices. This provides rich, vibrant flavor that you cannot experience from any other cooking method.

With a shelf life of 45-days in the fridge, our veggies provide the flexibility and hassle-free qualities you need for a busy lifestyle. (They last this long as they are sealed from all oxygen exposure right before the cooking process. This keeps them fresh without the need for any kind of preservative.)

Our Vegetables are Perfect for:

Balancing out last minute meals.
Healthy Snacking on-the-go.
Homemade baby food.
Simple & fast purees.
Party platters & more!

Our Vegetables Are:
Always preservative free.
Always non-GMO.
A fresh product.
Never frozen.

REVIEW:

I had heard about sous vide but never thought about buying one till I realized the flavor quotient of vegetables (and other foods) would be so much better. Then before I could buy a sous vide device, Straight from the Root vegetables entered into my life!
This is one fantastic idea and a great brand. These vegetables come fully cooked. You can open them up and eat the straight from the package.
Want them hot? Put the bag into the microwave for 90 seconds. Want them chilled for a salad or veggie tray? Put them in the back of your refrigerator for about an hour.
The variety of vegetables include Honey Gold baby potatoes, sweet potatoes, beets, carrots and butternut squash. Each one of these veggies can easily fulfill part of a meal for me and my family.

Why is this so important?
Because
1) I don’t have to buy a sous vide device
and
2) I don’t have to roast any veggies which often takes up to 90 minutes depending on temperature.
I have cooked beets and butternut squash before- and I know what a mess it is to peel them (before or after cooking).
With Straight from the Root vegetables, everything is done except my seasoning– and even that isn’t required.
NOTE:
I remember one Thanksgiving when dinner was at my house and my brother and his wife showed up 90 minutes late and brought a sack of potatoes for use to cook for mashed potatoes! With a table of 12 people already seated, dinner stopped and waited for the potatoes to be cooked – along with the gravy.
If that same tardy brother and wife showed up 90 minutes late, we would already be eating because I would have whipped out several vegetable packages and gotten things on the table a lot sooner!

Those cooking “episodes” are a thing of the past thanks to Straight from the Root brand!
Also because the bags hold up for 45 days, I have time to plan my meals around them as well as pull something out for last minute cooking emergencies and use it to fill part of my dinner needs.

Because the Straight from the Root products taste so incredibly delicious, I don’t have to work out all the preparation details (like roasting them in a bag after creating a special seasoned oil and/or peeling vegetables) to get good-tasting vegetables. The best part (for me) is that I get vegetables that taste like they were cooked in a restaurant – right from the individual veggie bags. It’s so easy. I can dress them up if I want to or we can eat these great vegetables with salt and pepper. I love the flexibility.

LA-Story.com and I would like to thank the “Straight from the Root” brand for the amazing veggie samples and being so patient.
I had written this review now about 3 times but due to technical issues with my ISP (and a dying modem that had been replaced 3 x in 5 months), it vanished or showed up half-written.
Finally, success!!
