If you’re in the mood for some curry, Trader Joe’s has a great red curry sauce recipe that’s easy to use and perfect for a quick lunch or dinner.
It’s made with a blend of lemongrass, galangal (Thai ginger), fresh chilis and fragrant spices. It’s a mild and family-friendly dish that you can customize with additional ingredients like coconut milk, fish sauce or sugar.
Pulled Pork Tacos
Trader Joe’s Fully Cooked Carnitas are a delicious option for those who want a quick and easy taco dinner. You’ll enjoy the authentic Mexican flavors of this dish in less than 15 minutes, with a few simple ingredients!
Using a slow cooker to make these pulled pork tacos is also a great way to save time. You can even prep all of the components ahead of time, so you can grab and go in just a few minutes.
When you’re ready to eat, place a tortilla on a heat-safe surface and add the “pulled pork.” Top with your favorite toppings: cilantro, sliced red onions, cotija cheese (optional), and avocado slices.
You can even swap out the jackfruit for a vegan version of this recipe, if you’d like. Simply replace the cotija cheese with a vegan alternative, or use vegan sour cream instead!
The sauce for these jackfruit pulled pork tacos is a simple and flavorful combination of barbecue sauce, tomato sauce, and apple cider vinegar. It’s a delicious blend of savory and sweet, with just the right amount of smoky spice.
To make these jackfruit pulled pork tacos, you’ll need: jackfruit, a flavorful bbq sauce, and corn tortillas. You can find a variety of tortillas at your local grocery store.
Start by mixing together the jackfruit, seasoning, and the barbecue sauce in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir and mix until the jackfruit is evenly coated in the bbq sauce and is tender. You’ll need to cook and stir this for a few minutes until the sauce thickens and reduces slightly.
When the jackfruit “pulled pork” is ready, you’ll want to serve it on a fresh corn tortilla and top with fresh cilantro, sliced red onions, cotija, and avocado. You can also add a squeeze of lime juice or adobo sauce for extra flavor!
These tacos are perfect for any occasion, and they’re so easy to make! They’re a healthy meal that’s sure to please everyone, especially if you’re eating vegetarian or low-carb.
Whether you’re looking for an easy weeknight dinner or want to make your next get-together more delicious, this jackfruit pulled pork tacos recipe is the perfect choice! You’ll love the tangy and smoky flavors, plus you’ll save time by cooking all of the ingredients ahead of time.
Pasta with Shrimp Pesto
This pasta dish is a delicious and satisfying main course. It’s perfect for company and can be made in minutes!
The sauce is creamy and delicious, but the shrimp and basil give it an extra punch of flavor. Add a sprinkle of freshly grated Parmesan cheese and some pine nuts for a garnish, and you’ve got a simple and elegant dinner that will leave you satisfied!
It’s also a great way to get kids to try a little curry. Just mix a can of coconut milk with Trader Joe’s red curry sauce and simmer it down to a delicious, easy meal.
For an extra kick, you can add fresh cherry tomatoes to the dish for a burst of flavor. If you’d like to make this a vegetarian dish, you can use veggie broth instead of chicken broth.
If you don’t have a food processor, you can also make the pesto in a regular blender. Just be sure to pulse it until it’s smooth and a thick consistency. If it’s too thick, you can add a little olive oil or water to thin it.
Once the pesto is ready, cook your noodles according to the package directions and then drain them. Reserve a cup of pasta cooking water, and then toss the pasta with the pesto and reserved pasta water until it’s well combined.
Toss in the shrimp and lemon zest, if you’re using them. You can even add a few drops of red pepper flakes for a spicy kick!
Shrimp are a delicious protein that works in any dish. I love combining it with a creamy pesto pasta sauce for a quick and easy main dish that’s perfect for a weeknight.
It’s a wonderful alternative to traditional tomato sauce, and you can add extra veggies, such as carrots or broccoli. The pesto makes it light and healthy as well!
The sauce is a bit on the sweet side, but it has small pops of chili and heat. It pairs well with fried chicken, but can also be used to dress up a grilled steak or chicken salad!
Pizza with Prosciutto
Trader Joe’s has a large freezer section in many stores, and one of their best-known offerings is frozen pizza. And, as a foodie, this is a tempting option because it comes with everything you need to make an impressive meal: a crust, a sauce, and plenty of toppings.
The problem is that some of Trader Joe’s frozen pizzas aren’t quite so impressive. The Burrata Prosciutto Flatbread is a good example of this. It’s tasty, but it’s also 900 calories per serving, and sitting down and eating all of that isn’t exactly a healthy option.
But, the good news is that if you’re not a fan of the red sauce, you can still enjoy a great-tasting pizza with a simple recipe that takes less than 20 minutes to prepare. Simply spread some tomato paste, garlic, olive oil, fennel, and thyme on your pizza dough, sprinkle a blend of cheeses (we recommend a mix), top with thin slices of prosciutto, and bake until the cheese is melted and the toppings are warmed through.
Another Trader Joe’s pizza that’s worth trying is their Margherita, which is packed with flavor and deliciously fresh mozzarella. While the toppings aren’t quite as authentic as a true pizza from Italy, it does have a good ratio of ingredients to the crust and comes with a decent amount of basil on top.
The only thing that let this pizza down was the arugula. The arugula that’s on this pizza has been cooked, frozen, and reheated, so it loses all of its distinctive flavors and just ends up being a runny spinach-like substance with very little spiciness.
Lastly, the prosciutto in this Trader Joe’s pizza is too salty, especially when combined with the arugula. But the pizza is otherwise a good choice, especially if you’re a fan of prosciutto and arugula.
If you’re looking for a quick, easy way to make pizza that isn’t loaded with unhealthy toppings, try making a pizza using Trader Joe’s flatbread. It’s a great base for a pizza with prosciutto, arugula, and other toppings, and you can make it in just a few minutes.
Vegetable-Filled Chicken Tacos
If you’re a fan of Mexican food, these Vegetable-Filled Chicken Tacos are a must try. The recipe calls for a combination of spices that give the vegetables a delicious flavor. They’re then topped with a corn cabbage slaw and a drizzle of creamy taco sauce for a quick and easy dinner recipe that’s sure to be a hit with the whole family!
The slaw and creamy sauce are easy to prepare, while the chicken is cooked in a slow cooker to ensure that it’s tender and juicy. If you prefer, you can also add some shredded cheddar cheese to each taco for an extra kick of flavor.
You can use any type of shredded chicken that you prefer for these Vegetable-Filled Chicken Tortillas, as long as it’s moist and tender. If you prefer to use chicken thighs, it’s best to grill them instead of baking them so that they can get a nice char and develop some good flavor.
When you’re ready to assemble your tacos, warm the tortillas in a 300degF oven or toaster oven until they’re soft and pliable. This helps to prevent the filling from spilling out of the tortillas when you’re assembling them and is an easy way to serve these delicious tacos.
Once you’ve layered the slaw, sauce, and chicken on each tortilla, top with some fresh lime juice and a wedge of cilantro for garnish. You can even drizzle a little bit of Sriracha over the top of each taco for an added kick.
These Vegetable-Filled Chicken Tortillas are an easy weeknight meal that’s full of flavor and is a great option for those who are trying to eat healthy on a budget. They’re made with a combination of beans and veggies, which add fiber and protein to the dish, and are packed with nutrition.
They’re also made with a red curry sauce from Trader Joe’s that has a unique blend of ingredients and is one of my favorite teriyaki sauces to use in recipes. This sauce has a mild flavor that can be paired with many different foods and is especially tasty when used as a marinade.
