Trader Joe’s Asian Vegetables with Beijing Style Soy Sauce Review

Trader Joe's Asian Vegetables with Beijing Style Soy Sauce

We know that some people turn their nose up at a plate full of vegetables, but we’ve always been veggie-lovers at Freezer Meal Frenzy. In fact, were it not for the lack of protein, we’d gladly eat a plate filled with vegetables and nothing else. Trader Joe’s Asian Vegetables with Beijing Style Soy Sauce is the sort of thing that’s right up our alley.

When you open up this bag, you’ll find that the soy sauce and the vegetables are separate. The soy sauce has to be thawed in warm water while the veggies are heated in the pan. During the last minute of cooking, you add the soy sauce to the pan and mix everything together.

Even though mixing in the soy sauce adds an extra step to the process, heating up these vegetables is extremely easy. It takes about 10 minutes in total, and the finished results look pretty impressive. There’s more than enough soy sauce to cover the vegetables, and the veggies are clearly very fresh.

As you might be able to tell from the image below, there are a lot of sugar snap peas in this mix. That’s not really a bad thing — we definitely appreciate a good snap pea — but we wish we’d had a little more baby corn or a few more kikurage mushrooms.

We also struggled to find the chunks of sweet potato that are allegedly in this dish. This is a nice mix of vegetables, but the proportions of the mix just aren’t right.

Dominance of snap peas aside, these are some very tasty vegetables. The veggies are delicious, and could easily be eaten plain, but the sauce takes it to the next level. This isn’t just a barebones soy sauce. It’s Beijing-style soy sauce, which means it also includes things like sesame seeds, chili pepper, and Sherry wine. It’s a terrific blend of flavors that is perfect for a stir-fry.

Add a protein and some noodles or rice to this blend of vegetables, and you’ve got yourself a terrific meal. We think that Trader Joe’s Asian Vegetables would be amazing with their Kung Pao Cauliflower or their Tempura Shrimp. If you’re looking for ways to add more vegetables to your diet, Trader Joe’s has got you covered.
