Trader Joe’s Garden Vegetable Lasagna (contains milk products). This is made with Organic Vegetables and organic wheat flour.

Trader Joe’s Thai Vegetable Gyoza (pot stickers). One bag makes about 3 servings of 5 gyoza each.
How Does It Taste? Pretty good. If you like a little dark brown crust on the bottom of your pot stickers, preheat 1 tablespoon canola oil in a nonstick skillet, then place the frozen gyoza flat-side down in the pan and saute on medium-high heat for about 4 minutes. Pour in about 1/4 cup of water; reduce heat to medium and cover. The pot stickers are done when the water has evaporated.

Trader Joe’s Meatless Corn Dogs. These veggie corn dogs are made with soy protein concentrate, wheat gluten, egg whites, dextrose, canola oil, and other ingredients.
How Does It Taste? Surprisingly good -- my teenage daughters even like them. I have them in the freezer so they can make themselves a quick snack every now and then.
