The Veg-All News

Here's a recipe that needs to stay forgotten in history, they only thing that would make it more regrettable is if it was encased in Jello and molded into something ridiculous.   Let's open a can of veg all which looks like a concoction of kitchen scraps from the local restaurant and we'll serve it on a lettuce leaf with some mayonnaise topped with pimento... Yummy, or not. 

Ok so it's not as bad as all that, veg all is just your standard can of mixed vegetables.  It's still made to this day and can be found just about anywhere.  I prefer eating fresh vegetables but maybe I should get some cans just to have around for a quick side dish.  My wife and I don't eat as much vegetables as we should, I'm just not sure about this mixture.

Veg all has been around since 1926 and is now owned by Sager Creek Vegetable Company which started off as Allen Canning Co in 1926 and now is simply known as The Allens.  I went to their website and although you have to poke around to find this out, their products are GMO free which is more than I can say about Bird's Eye frozen vegetables.  It's interesting to think we got away from canned food because frozen was supposed to be so much healthier for us and now the pendulum is swinging in the other direction. 


  1. Actually, Allens Veg-All is great for making quick vegetable beef soup. Brown some stew meat, salt and pepper to taste, add water and simmer till tender. Add two large cans of Veg-All, drained, and simmer for about 30 minutes. I also sometimes add a can of pintos and navy beans along with a can of Italian Style diced tomatoes. Easy peasy, quick and easy. Delicious too.

    1. That's a great idea! I've used it to make shepherds pie as well
