Trader Joe’s Multigrain Blend with Vegetables Review

Trader Joe's Multigrain Blend with Vegetables

While some people shy away from carbs, the Freezer Meal Frenzy staffers are pretty into whole grains. They’re packed with nutrients and antioxidants, and they’re high in fiber too. We also love to eat our veggies, which is why the Trader Joe’s Multigrain Blend with Vegetables was a natural pick for us.

Trader Joe’s offers a number of preparation options. If you’d prefer cold-to-room temperature veggies, you can thaw this in the fridge or on the countertop. If you want a warm meal, there are microwave and stovetop instructions. We were in the mood for hot food, so we chose to heat this on the stove!

While thawing this out will take you hours, the stovetop method just takes three minutes. Toss the contents in a pan, add in the cooking oil of your choice, and stir until it’s cooked through. As soon as everything’s thawed out, you can transfer the contents of your pan to a bowl.

Even though this is really just a big bowl of grains and veggies, we’d say that it’s substantial enough to serve as a meal. A full bag contains 540 calories, which is a little on the high side, but it also has 15 grams of protein. If eating this many grains at once feels like too much, it would also make a great side dish.

This is definitely a clean, nutrient-dense dish that will leave you feeling good after you’re done eating. However, it might not blow you away in the flavor department. There’s nothing wrong with how this tastes, but this is really just grains and veggies; it’s a pretty plain dish. Trader Joe’s recommends seasoning this to taste, and we’d suggest the same. A bit of black pepper did add some extra flavor to this dish.

Trader Joe’s Multigrain Blend with Vegetables is a great option for anyone looking to inject more grains into their diet. While a full bag contains more calories than you might expect, this is still a very nutritious frozen dish. Whether you eat this on your own or pair it up with another frozen treat, your body will thank you for choosing foods like this!
