SerenaD is asking: (2 answers)
When a recipe calls for a package of frozen vegetables, thawed, does this mean you can put them in the refrigerator and let them thaw out? Or do you cook them according to the package directions and then add them to your recipe?

It just means to defrost them. Don't cook.

Yes Serena, just thaw them. Unless the veggies are little, like peas n carrots, if you make a tuna casserole for instance, I add them frozen and the heat from the mixture will thaw n heat them up nicely.

You can do it either way. If you're in a rush, cook them ~~ if not, thaw in fridge. Hope this helps!! KathyJ.

Or you can rinse them under cold running water.

It means to add without pre-cooking them. If you cook them and then add to a dish that gets baked, they will turn to mush.
