15 Vegan Foods We Always Buy from Trader Joe’s
Trader Joe's has some of the best vegan foods around, and whenever we make a trip, it's hard not to overfill our carts with what we find. From ingredients for cozy meatless casseroles to everything you need for cruelty-free appetizers, it's our go-to store. Even if you're familiar with their selection, there are some items you may not realize are actually vegan. The price is right compared to other stores too. The next time you're at TJ's, keep an eye out for these 15 tasty meat-free, non-dairy products.
Fresh Almond Beverage ($3): Trader Joe's has great prices on non-dairy milk. We like their unsweetened and sweetened vanilla almond beverages the best for adding to smoothies, baked goods, or even coffee.
Cultured Coconut Milk Yogurt ($1): Start the morning off right with a cup of this cultured coconut milk yogurt. For a heartier breakfast, top it with fresh fruit and granola.
Organic Fruit & Seed Granola ($4): It's important to begin your day with protein and healthy fats that will keep you going until lunch. Grain-free, gluten-free, and vegan, this granola does the trick.
Cocoa Almond Cashew Beverage ($2): Chocolate milk tastes even better when it's made with almonds and cashews instead of dairy. Add some to your coffee to make a deeply satisfying mocha latte.
3 Seed Beet Crackers ($2): Crispy, crunchy, and crimson, beet crackers make a visual splash when served next to your favorite vegan cheese spread.
Cornbread Crisps ($3): Crunchy vegan snacks beyond your standard chips can be hard to come by. That's why we're obsessed with these salty, slightly sweet, and super crunchy cornbread crisps.
Goddess Dressing ($2): We usually make our dressings from scratch, but it's always a good idea to have some on hand for days when you're too busy to bother. Made with tahini, herbs, and lemon, this dressing can be drizzled over salads, roasted veggies, sandwiches, and more.
High Protein Super Firm Organic Tofu ($2): Ah, tofu. Where would we be without you? Trader Joes' super firm variety is packed with protein and hearty enough to stand up to roasting, frying, and sautéeing.
10 Minute Farro & Barley ($2): Figuring out how to cook with new whole grains can be a pain. Thankfully, these 10-minute bags of farro and barley exist, making it a quick and painless task to get some healthy carbs on the table.
Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry ($3): After a long day, making a painstaking meal just isn't always an option. Keep a bag of this riced cauliflower stiry-fry in the freezer for those nights, so you can just empty the bag into a pan, sauté, and eat.
Yellow Jackfruit Curry with Jasmine Rice ($3): Try out jackfruit, the latest vegan sensation, in this curry. It's simmered in a lightly spicy yellow curry sauce and served with white rice on the side.
Kung Pao Tempura Cauliflower ($5): Crispy bites of cauliflower and a spicy-sweet sauce make this one of the tastiest frozen vegan meals around. Add some toasted peanuts and sautéed veggies if you're feeling extra fancy.
Thai Green Curry Simmer Sauce ($2): Sauté veggies and tofu in a pan, then add a jar of this sauce. Simmer until warm, and you've got a fragrant and fabulous meal in minutes.
Cauliflower Pizza Crust ($4): Pizza night is a regular affair in our home. Gluten-free and vegan, this pre-made pizza crust makes putting dinner together so much easier.
Mango & Sticky Rice Spring Rolls ($3): If you're not that crazy about super sweet desserts, these rolls are for you. Inside a crispy shell you'll find sticky coconut rice surrounding ripe mangoes, with just enough sweetness for a satisfying end to your meal.
