Trader Joe’s Fire Roasted Vegetables with Balsamic Butter Sauce Review

Trader Joe's Fire Roasted Vegetables with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Sometimes, vegetables get a bad rap. Kids around the world have to be bribed to eat their veggies, and there are even adults that avoid them. We think that this is less of a problem with veggies themselves and more of an issue with how the vegetables are prepared. Steamed vegetables can be bland and mushy. Trader Joe’s Fire Roasted Vegetables with Balsamic Butter Sauce, however, are bursting with flavor.

Trader Joe’s has already done all of the fire-roasting, so the only thing you need to do is thaw these vegetables (and the butter sauce). We heated everything in a skillet on the stove, and we found it to be very easy. Our vegetables were perfectly heated in less than 20 minutes. We were very impressed by the color of the vegetables as they cooked. Those cherry tomatoes are bright red; you can really tell that they’re fresh.

If the picture above has your mouth watering, we can promise you that these vegetables are just as delicious as they look. The bag includes plenty of different veggies, and all of them are marvelous. We were especially impressed with the flavor of the pearl onions and the mushrooms. The mushrooms soak up plenty of sauce as they cooked, which makes them extra juicy.

Speaking of sauce, the balsamic butter sauce is fantastic. It’s a little thick once it’s cooked; the texture reminds us of gravy. The balsamic dressing gives it a bit of a kick, but the flavor of the sauce is simple enough that it doesn’t overpower the vegetables.

Even though this blend of vegetables is absolutely amazing, it’s not something you’d want to eat plain. This isn’t designed to be a meal; it’s just a bunch of veggies in a rich sauce. We think it would make an excellent side dish, but we actually chose to eat it with a meatless sausage. The resulting combination was fantastic, and we think it’d be just as good with the real deal.

If you’re interested in adding more vegetables into your diet, Trader Joe’s Fire Roasted Vegetables with Balsamic Butter Sauce is an incredible option. We’re blown away by the flavor of the veggies, and we love the butter sauce. No matter how you choose to serve these veggies, we think you’ll love them too.
