Ranch Seasoned Crispy Chickpeas

July 21, 2017 in Category: What's New

In the English language, “chickpea” has a history dating back to the 18th century. “Garbanzo” comes to English directly from Spanish, and is a more recent entry in the lexicon.

The beans (garbanzo beans grown right here in the U.S. of A., as a matter of fact) are...

Organic Sprouted Tricolor Quinoa

June 30, 2017 in Category: What's New

While rice is arguably the most widely consumed staple food for much of humanity, a small pseudocereal known as quinoa [keen-WAH] is making strides towards larger, global consumption.

It continues, today, with Trader Joe’s Organic Sprouted Tricolor Quinoa. Adding to our current quinoa selection—which includes Organic Quinoa, Organic Red Quinoa, and Organic Tricolor Quinoa—this new offering is unique in that it’s Sprouted.

Salad Sideshow

June 26, 2017 in Category: Entertaining

While some think summer cooking is limited to grilling, and others think the words "summer" and "cooking" don't belong together at all, we beg to differ. Whether you're at the stove or simply tossing raw ingredients together, side dishes support the aforementioned activities and offer a fresh counterpoint of flavor to heavy grilled fare. And within this supporting cast of sides, perhaps none are more important than the refreshing summer salad...

Onion Salt

June 23, 2017 in Category: What's New

Allium is the fancy (read: scientific) name for the onion and its many relatives, including garlic, scallions, leeks, and chives. There are alliums that you won’t find in the kitchen—ones that add bright purple and pink flowers to spring gardens—but we tend to keep to culinary endeavors rather than horticultural ones. And with that in mind, we’ve created a new seasoning salt to celebrate these flavorful alliums: Trader Joe’s Onion Salt...
