* Review: Green Giant has retooled old favorites and added new flavors to its extensive repertoire with great results. Among the new offerings in the easily recognized 10-ounce box are Southwestern Style Corn & Roasted Red Peppers and Teriyaki Vegetables. The corn includes julienne strips of roasted red and cooked green peppers in a very light tomato-based sauce that's a tad more elegant than the average corn medley. The teriyaki presents broccoli, cauliflower and carrots in a whole new way, thanks to the soy-based sauce. Retooled Rice Pilaf now brims with mushrooms, carrots and peas. And White & Wild Rice with Green Beans has stepped up its dinner table impact with onion, parsley, garlic and other spices. Paired with red meat, fowl or fish, these are accompaniments fit for family and guests. They make it look as if you fussed - when you didn't.
