Favorite Vegetarian Foods from Trader Joe’s continued...

Nutrition Information: 6 meatballs (85 grams) have 140 calories, 16 g protein, 8 g carbohydrate, 6 g fat, 0 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 4 g fiber, 560 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 38.5%. (6% Daily Value for calcium and 15% Daily Value for iron)

 

Vegan Pad Thai with Tofu. These are traditional Thai-style rice noodles in a peanut-based sauce with tofu, scallions, and carrots.

How Does It Taste? Pretty good. I like to sprinkle in some soy nuts or chopped peanuts for added flavor and crunch.

Nutrition Information: 1 container has 600 calories, 18 g protein, 114 g carbohydrate, 7 g fat, 1.5 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 3 g fiber, 840 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 11%. (45% Daily Value for Vitamin A, 10% for Vitamin C)

 

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

How Does It Taste? Pretty good. I like to sprinkle some freshly grated Parmesan cheese over the top for added flavor.

Nutrition Information: 1 container has 290 calories, 13 g protein, 41 g carbohydrate, 9 g fat, 4 g saturated fat, 20 mg cholesterol, 5 g fiber, 720 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 28%. (70% Daily Value for vitamin A, 25% for calcium, 60% for Vitamin C)

 

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.

Nutrition Information: Five gyoza have 270 calories, 5 g protein, 40 g carbohydrate, 10 g fat, 1.5 g saturated fat, < 5 mg cholesterol, 5 g fiber, 600 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 33%. (35% Daily value for Vitamin A)

 

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.

Nutrition Information: 1 corn dog has 160 calories, 9 g protein, 22 g carbohydrate, 3.5 g fat, .5 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 1 g fiber, 560 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 20%. (6% Daily Value for Vitamin C)

 

Vegetable Masala Burger. The first five ingredients are potatoes, canola oil, carrots, green beans, and water.

How Does It Taste? This burger has a pleasant Indian flavor with hot spices. It has a slightly oily texture. I suggest serving it with high-fiber bread or bun to increase the fiber count for the meal.

Nutrition Information:1 burger has 120 calories, 2 g protein, 12 g carbohydrate, 8 g fat, 1 gram saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 1 gram fiber, 360 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 60%. (8% Daily Value for Vitamin A, 15% for Vitamin C)
