Consider me influenced, but my favorite Instagram follow these days is Trader Joe’s List, the OG Trader Joe’s Instagram fan club. The account is run by Superfan-in-Chief, Natasha Fischer, who is well on her way to having one million followers simply by posting photos of peoples’ Trader Joe’s hauls, new grocery finds, and funny TJ’s-related memes.

She recently used her platform to ask her followers for the best TJ’s concoctions they’ve made “that need to be shared.” Here are some of the awesome crowdsourced recipe ideas from superfans just like you. They can all be made with just four ingredients or fewer!

“I feel like I need to shout it from the rooftops, but that isn’t socially unacceptable so I’ll just tell you: I blended the TJ’s vegan pesto with some lemon and avocado last night. Tossed it on the zoodles and bam my life changed forever.”
