Trader Joe’s Ingredients Recipes

Trader Joe's Mediterranean Falafel Salad

This salad is simple to make but is by no means boring. The Mediterranean-Style Salad Kit, 10-Minute Farro, and Falafel Mix combine to create a hearty lunch or dinner bowl that takes a fraction of the time as making falafel from scratch.

Saag Paneer Pizza

If you thought Trader Joes’ frozen Palak Paneer couldn’t get any better, think again. Spread it out on a Cauliflower Pizza Crust and top it with their Roasted Potatoes with Peppers & Onions or any other veggie mixture you like for a whole new twist on pizza night.

Butternut Squash and Broccolini Rice Bowl with Soy Chorizo

If you have yet to try Trader Joe’s famous Soy Chorizo, you’re in for a treat. It’s chock-full of protein and absurdly flavorful. Pair it with the Butternut Squash Zig-Zags,  Frozen Brown Rice, Organic Baby Broccoli, and hard-boiled eggs. Delicious!

Trader Joe's Garlic Naan Flatbread Pizza

If you’re tempted to skip the cooking tonight and order a pizza, I encourage you to try this recipe instead — you’ll have dinner in a quarter of the time it would take for delivery to arrive. Just top the Garlic Naan with a pack of frozen veggies and a sprinkle of Quattro Formaggio Shredded Cheese Blend and bake.

Cauliflower Rice Lunch Bowl with Sweet Potatoes and Chickpeas

By just swapping out the grains for Cauliflower Rice, you can make a bowl that has twice as many veggies. This one calls for baking the rice instead of sautéing it, which will give it a nice texture and save you the aggravation of sweating over the stove. Top it with sweet potato wedges, chickpeas, feta, and avocado for lots of flavor and color.

Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower Bowls with Avocado and Green Tahini

If you always burn your rice, Trader Joe’s cooks it and freezes it for you so all you need to do is toss it in the microwave. Baking cauliflower in hot sauce will make it taste way more indulgent than it actually is. Avocado, green tahini, and their delicious Organic Cole Slaw Kit will cool down the heat of the cauliflower — trust us, you’ll need it!
