PRODUCT: New Delights From Garden Lites

We’re big fans of the Garden Lites Line, both the veggie muffins and the vegetable soufflés.

Garden Lites Veggie Muffins

The line, previously represented by delicious Carrot Berry and Chocolate Zucchini muffins, has been joined by Veggie Blueberry Oat and Banana Chocolate Chip. As we write this, we’re enjoying the two new flavors with a cup of tea.

The all natural Veggie Muffins are made of 1/3 fresh vegetables. Each muffin is shrink-wrapped for easy portability. Just let the frozen muffins defrost naturally or heat them in the microwave for 30 seconds: You’ll have an extremely moist treat that’s right-sized (not super-sized) at 120 calories per muffin (3 Weight Watchers points), with 5g fiber.

The recipes contain eggs but are dairy free, gluten free, nut free and soy free. The muffins are certified kosher (parve) by Star-K.

Garden Lites Veggie Soufflés

We simply love these delightful soufflés as healthful snacks. The original nine flavors have been augmented with two more: Loaded Potato Soufflé, a potato, broccoli and chive soufflé topped with cheddar cheese sauce; and Veggie Chili and Cornbread Melt, a delicious cornbread base topped with vegetable chili and cheddar cheese sauce.

These new additions led us to the blinding revelation of the obvious: That we could add a bit of cheese sauce or grated parmesan to any of the soufflé flavors. In fact, a sprinkle of our own grated parmesan (not from a can, please) added much more flavor than the cheddar sauce.

It gave the Loaded Potato some needed extra seasoning. But the Veggie Chili & Cornbread Melt is a winner: a great combination of flavors and textures that transported us to the Southwest.


Both new varieties have 200 calories, two servings of vegetables and 5 Weight Watchers points. Loaded Potato has 11g protein, Veggie Chili has 9 g protein. The soufflés are certified kosher (dairy) by Star-D.

The products are available at select Costco locations and other retailers. Check the store locator for the store nearest you.
