I mean, you could tear into bags of these pre-made yums from Trader Joe’s and devour them as they are, but why do that when it’s so easy to make ’em even better?
For the record, I love hacking TJ’s products and making them my own. I did it this week to make a delicious veggie meal. I made cauliflower gnocchi with Parmesan and basil, then added it to a salad with crunchy ranch-flavored chickpeas and corn, all using stuff from TJ’s.
It was really easy, too. I started making it right as El Hub took Connor out to play, and it was completely done and plated when they got back 30 minutes later. All we had to do was sit down and eat.
I loved it, El Hub loved it, and the baby loved it, too. She gobbled down every last bite.
If you want to give it a try, you’ll need a few things…
- The Trader Joe’s Organic Mediterranean Style Salad Kit, which you can get in the bagged salad section
- Cauliflower Gnocchi, which is in the frozen foods section
- Also, not pictured here, Trader Joe’s Ranch Seasoned Crispy Chickpeas (you’ll find them by the chips)
- Grated Parmesan
- Olive oil
- Corn! (Can’t forget the corn.)
