Review: Ikea - Vegetable Medallions

Ikea Vegetable Medallions (also known as Potato and Broccoli Medallions) are offered in their in-store restaurants as well as available for purchase frozen in bulk from the Swedish Food Market area of their stores.

Each medallion is formed from mostly diced potato as well as broccoli, leek, onions and cheese. They're a bit pricey: it's two medallions for $1.99. You can also save by buying a frozen 21.2-ounce box of them for $5.29 to make at home.

The texture of the vegetable is similar to a giant baked tater tot. There's just a slight bit of crust at the surface from baking. Inside is mostly soft potato bits with a light but flavorful cheese sauce. The greens don't add much in the way of texture.

The main flavor is potato, broccoli, and cheese. I'm not sure what type of cheese is used but it's yummy; I want to say it's parmesan and cream, but again, I'm not sure.

The flavor of broccoli is pretty interesting; it's not very commonly combined with potatoes, but it works!

These have enough flavor to eat on their own or as a side dish. Like I mentioned before, Ikea's Vegetable Medallions are pricey but good.

  2. That's what's listed on their website... oh wait... haha, they only sell them frozen in Hong Kong apparently... so $55 HK (~$7.10 US). That's much more affordable! And makes more sense... I go fix...
