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
