Trader Joe’s Cookbook Giveaway

I recently received this new cookbook which is being released in a few weeks.

The I Love Trader Joe’s Vegetarian Cookbook: 150 Delicious and Healthy Recipes Using Foods from the World’s Greatest Grocery Store

The book is your guide to turning healthy ingredients into inexpensive, mouth-watering, vegetarian meals for any day of the week. A few of the recipes include:

Pineapple Upside-Down Pancakes


Herbed Garlic Polenta Fries

Tuscan Tomato Soup

Tempeh Tacos

Pumpkin Spice Cobbler

There are 150 delicious vegetarian (and vegan) options from breakfast to dinner and everything in between. This cookbook has plenty of recipes and ideas to help you prepare easy and tasty vegetarian meals using ingredients from Trader Joe’s, and of course ingredients from other grocery stores may be substituted because although I love Trader Joe’s, I know not everyone has access to their stores.

I was a contributing author in this Trader Joe’s cookbook, which was just released last month, so between that cookbook and this one, I’m always cooking up something with TJ’s products. Here are a few of my favorite vegetarian or vegan recipes that can be made using Trader Joe’s ingredients:

Vegetable Lasagna Casserole (vegan, GF) – Non-traditional noodle-less lasagna that’s make with grated zucchini and carrots, which is baked to form the ‘noodle’. Trader Joe’s salsas and sauces work wonderfully to layer in the middle of this lasagna

Cheesy Taco Casserole – Gluten-free, vegetarian, and can be kept vegan. Like tacos, with rice and beans, in casserole form

Double Melted Cheese and Red Pepper Dip (GF) – Make in the microwave in 5 minutes. Fast, easy, and my new favorite dip. The Trader Joe’s green chilis add just a hint of heat to the dip and are only 99 cents

Spinach Artichoke and Roasted Red Pepper Cheesy Squares (vegetarian, with vegan & GF options) – Like spinach and artichoke dip, but baked into squares. Trader Joe’s frozen spinach, frozen artichokes, and marinated red peppers are the stars of the show

Spicy Baked Eggs and Hash Brown Casserole (vegetarian, GF) – Eggs, frozen hash browns, and frozen spinach make this meal easy , fast, and very budget-friendly

Chips and Cheese Chili Casserole (vegetarian/vegan, GF) – Tailgating dreams come true. Or make it for an easy weeknight meal that makes planned leftovers. Trader Joe’s has so many varieties of chips, any of which would be perfect baked into this dish

Mango Basil Personal-Sized Tortilla Pizzas (can be kept vegan & GF) – I love Trader Joe’s frozen mango chunks and am never without them or their frozen pineapple chunks, for smoothies to pizza

Pumpkin Spice and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola (vegan, GF) – Trader Joe’s pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin puree and dried cranberries are perfect for this fall-inspired granola. Year round I am never without their raisin medley with golden raisins or their semi-sweet chocolate chips

  1. The list goes on and on…especially now that it is pumpkin season! I think that their cookie butter is unbelievably good and I keep many of their frozen foods in my freezer! I just tried the meatball…delish…maybe I will make them for dinner tonight : ) I can’t wait to see the cookbooks!

  2. My favorite cook book is actually the Betty Crocker cook book because it was my first, given to me on the day I had my first child and it taught me so much! :)

  3. I’ve been following you on facebook and will continue :)

  4. Where do I even begin with my T Joe’s product love?! Let’s see… coconut oil, roasted red peppers, capers, and red quinoa are all staples in my apartment, and I love their cheeses!

  5. I don’t have a Trader Joe’s very near to me so I don’t go all that often, but this cookbook looks amazingggg!!!
    I am a big fan of their selection of trailmix and dried fruit though.

  6. I just followed you on pinterest and am so excited by all of your boards! And I repinned your pretzel peanut caramel peanut butter cookie dough truffles.

  7. My current fav cook book is Peas and Thank you…love Mama Pea’s recipes!

  8. FB like you!

  9. I love the crunchy Valencia peanut butter, raw almonds, their whole wheat bread, their dark chocolate bar, and my absolute favorite product from Trader Joe’s is their microwavable spinach and artichoke dip! I can eat the whole container in one sitting!

  10. I love all of their cookies. :)

  11. I like Trader Joe’s almond milk

  12. Cookie Butter is definitely one of my favorites! As well as their hazelnut chocolate cookies, pumpkin macarons, (new I think!), gluten free brownie mix, all Trader Joe’s granola, and their Goddess dressing just to name a few!!! Yum!

  13. I was in Bellevue, WA a couple of years ago for a continuing education course and had the opportunity to shop for some quick, simple meals at Trader Joe’s. Loved ALL of their produce–I had to restrain myself because I was only there for a few days and I tend to “over buy” sometimes!

  14. How can one choose a favorite when it comes to cookbooks or Trader Joes?! :)

  15. I love the salted caramel chocolate bar from T Joe’s…it’s awesome!

  16. Our latest favs are the Honey Roasted Pumpkin Ravioli and TJ’s Almond Meal. LOVE LOVE LOVE TJ’s

  17. Oh I need this book! Faves are honey goat cheese, margherita pizza, cats cookies, schoolbook cookies, their butter, the produce, smoked trout, dried mango, 21 salute spice, yummy tummy gummies, I could go on and on!

  18. Following you on Pintrest. I already thought I had.
    I LOVE Trader Joe’s dark chocolate. And all the awesome produce they have. I would love to have the cookbook. I am waiting for a Trader Joe’s in our area. Soon!!!!!

  19. Do I have to pick one item? Maybe dark chocolate peanut butter cups.

    But really, I do almost all of my shopping at Trader Joe’s. I belong to a CSA too. But other than that, I only go to other grocery stores if it’s something that TJ’s doesn’t have, like dried beans.

  20. Trader Joes PB. Without a doubt

  21. I follow on facebook!

  22. my favorite cookbook is the King Arthur Flour Bakers Companion. I love bread, and almost every recipe I’ve tried has been delicious!
