I stopped by Trader Joe’s for some shopping over the weekend and I wanted to share some of the delicious items I found with you!
Organic Purple Maize Flakes $3.69.
Green Jackfruit $1.99. This is a super popular meat substitute these days. Up until about a year ago, it seemed like the only place you could find it was at an Asian market. Trader Joe’s seems to do a good job of capitalizing on food trends and offering ingredients like these at reasonable prices.
Tuscano Marinara Sauce: $1.99.
Kentucky Bourbon BBQ Sauce: $2.99.
Goat’s Cheese Medallions Marinated in Herbs: $4.99. How would you use this ingredient?
Capers: $2.49 – $2.69. I love using capers in pasta and also in chicken piccata.
Pastry Bites: $4.99. One of the ladies in my book club brings these from time to time and they are just incredible! They are stuffed with feta cheese and caramelized onions and are just so dangerously delicious.
I was intrigued by these Cuban black beans and bought a can. They have minced jalapenos in them and a nice texture. I served with Trader Joe’s Carne Asada. Amazing!
Caramel Ginger Popcorn: $2.99.
Sparkling seltzer, 4 cans: $3.99.
Crunchy Nutty Rice Bites: $2.99.
Frozen Coconut Chunks… I believe these were about $2.69 – $2.99. I think they’d be great thrown in a frozen smoothie. Other uses?
Organic Figs: $3.99. I love fresh figs, but they are ultra seasonal and not always easy to find. They have a unique texture raw, or you can roast them and toss in salads, pasta, or pizza with a drizzle of balsamic. Yum!
I was curious about these Shishito Peppers! I’ve never heard of them or tried them before. Have you?
Black bean rotini: $2.99.
Globe Artichokes, 4 ct: $2.49. This seems like a really great price for artichokes!
Clarified Butter and Buffalo Ghee: $3.99.
I picked up a bottle of this seasoning salt for $1.99. It suggests using it on fries, burgers, veggies or more. It smells fantastic and I can’t wait to use it!
