Are you fortunate enough to have a Trader Joe’s within easy driving distance to do your weekly (daily?) grocery shopping? Do you often buy Trader Joe’s foods just because they sound and look good but then don’t have a clue what to do with them? If you’re nodding your head, then you’ve got to pick up Kris Holechek’s The I Love Trader Joe’s Vegetarian Cookbook: 150 Delicious and Healthy Recipes Using Foods from the World’s Greatest Grocery Store. Every recipe has tips to make it vegan.
Trader Joe’s is awesome!
When I lived in California and did a stint of personal cheffing in Arizona, I frequented Trader Joe’s as if no other store existed. Now that I live in Montana, I miss the eclectic, budget-friendly, wholesome foods store and hope one day soon it comes to Bozeman.
I Love Trader Joe’s Vegetarian Cookbook
It’s true: Trader Joe’s is the one-stop shop to stock any kitchen with healthy gourmet and great tasting foods. The place is also a vegan and vegetarian’s food haven because items are labeled so you know exactly what you’re getting and whether or not the foods fit with your diet preferences.
Author Kris Holechek has taken her favorite products and worked them into her favorite recipes and wants to share them with other Trader Joe’s fanatics. The I Love Trader Joe’s Vegetarian Cookbook (Ulysses Press, November 2012) delivers 150 recipes using the iconic store’s foods.
Recipes include Tasty Tofu Scramble, Tempeh Tacos, African Peanut Stew, Roasted Carrot Risotto, and Pumpkin Spice Cobbler. Even better than just sharing the recipes, the cookbook also features full-color photos and tips how to make each recipe strictly vegan.
This is a must-get if you love Trader Joe’s and this cookbook is a perfect idea for giving as a healthy holiday gift.
