Trader Joe's is a popular grocery chain in the US with over 530 stores nationwide. The chain is one of the best places to purchase healthy and vegan-friendly products in the country. They also seem to be always aware of the latest food trends and are constantly introducing new plant-based products. Here is a list of some vegan items at Trader Joe’s that are highly recommended by different members.
Everything But The Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend
If you’ve been on the Internet recently, you may already know that Bagel seasoning has become one the biggest food trends of 2021. Bagel seasoning usually consists of herbs, seeds and spices that you can add to just about any dish you like. This blend by Trader Joe’s includes sesame seeds, garlic, onion, salt, and poppy seeds.
Whether it’s on your morning avocado toast or a sprinkle on fresh homemade sourdough bread, there is no limit to how you can use this blend on your meals.
In her review, @sedrew1 says that this is the best seasoning ever. “I put this on avocado toast, pasta, sandwiches, literally anything else. It’s so good and flavorful. Perfect addition to pretty much all dishes.”

In need of a ready-to-eat meal that’s both filling and easy to eat while on the go? This is it. Not only is the Rainbow Wrap colorful, it’s also packed to the brim with healthy vegetables such as beetroot, spinach and sweet potato.
“It’s impossible for me to go into Trader Joe’s and not grab at least one of these. Delicious, healthy, and easy to grab and go.” says abillion member @keeponveganon.

We know what you’re thinking. It sounds a little crazy but surprisingly, it’s a delicious combination. We recommend using this as a spread on toast or pairing it with fruit.
Here’s what abillion member @byobottlesg says about it, “Chickpeas and chocolate? This shouldn't work but somehow it does. Mostly it tastes like chocolate, just with a really thick texture. Perfect with strawberries!”

Carrot Ginger Miso Salad Dressing

Trader Joe’s carries some super healthy and very tasty vegan salad dressings. According to members, their Carrot Ginger Miso dressing is one of the best. They say that the quality and consistency of this Japanese-influenced dressing remind them of sauces that are freshly made at restaurants.
Check out this veggie bowl (pictured above) that @forksandplants made. She says, “OMG! I’m in love! This dressing is great. I recommend it! Wow, I made this bowl with quinoa, smoked baked tofu, broccoli, sesame seeds and some other greens and poured this sauce over it and it’s so good.”

Eggplant Garlic Spread with Sweet Peppers

Trader Joe’s says that this spread is based on a traditional Bulgarian recipe. It is a blend of fresh harvested eggplant, garlic, and sweet red peppers. Vibrant, sweet and with a hint of spice, it is a must-have at home, especially during the fall season.
abillion member @tinkledink says, “Yummy! Used as a spread on crackers, but the label has lots of fun ideas for use.”
We recommend heating this up lightly before serving as the flavors are the best when it’s warm. Serve it on toast, or alongside roasted veggies. Anyway you choose to enjoy this, we are sure you will not be disappointed.

Although vegan creamers aren’t as widely available as other dairy alternatives yet, this coconut and almond based creamer comes highly recommended. We’re told that it will add a sweet but subtle vanilla flavor to your coffee.
In her review, @veganinthe614 shares, “I love this new creamer! I use it in my coffee and hot tea. I think it’s a little creamier than plain almond creamer. I like the subtle vanilla flavor too. It’s the perfect size to take to work!”

Turkeyless Protein Patties

It’s no surprise that beef and chicken burger alternatives have become extremely popular in recent years. Once upon a time, turkey burgers were the healthiest burgers around. Well, now you can have a vegan Turkey burger by Trader Joe’s. If you’ve become a turkey burger fan over the years, this is for you.
abillion member @doglover1 says, “Yum! These are delicious and taste just like a Turkey burger. The best part is that the texture and consistency is the same as well. They have less fat and calories than most vegan burgers so that's an added plus. Will definitely buy these again.”

Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Trader Joe’s has a wide array of vegan cookies and, from what we understand, many of them are healthier than most pre-packaged cookies you’d find elsewhere. These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are our favorite choice from the grocer.
Health coach @aprildiane is a fan of these cookies. She says, “I love chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies that are soft. These check that box. Not too soft and not too hard. I would recommend it to family and friends, especially those skeptical about veganism. You can’t tell these are vegan. Kids would like them too. They had me at the first bite.”

This convenient meal is perfect to have on hand for those days you don’t have the time to cook something from scratch. It takes just 5 to 7 minutes to heat up in the microwave oven and it comes out smelling heavenly.
The curry is rich in coconut milk and slightly sweet thanks to the jackfruit, the hero ingredient of the dish. If you’re a fan of peppery dishes, you’re in luck because our members have said in their reviews that this dish is on the spicier side.
Here’s what @celinaserenity had to say about this, “Honestly, my favorite quick frozen meal! So tasty and pretty filling in my opinion. Very convenient if you are in a rush!”
