Trader Joe’s Vegetable Samosa Burrito Review

Trader Joe's Vegetable Samosa Burrito

Freezer Meal Frenzy began as a humble little frozen burrito review site before it branched out into other things. So sometimes we see a burrito that’s technically not frozen (and not really counted as frozen by any standard at all) and we decide to toss a review into the Freezer Meal Frenzy pot anyway.

That’s the case with the Trader Joe’s Vegetable Samosa Burrito. We spotted this sucker at Trader Joe’s, and we knew right away that we needed to get it into our kitchen as soon as we could.

Like the other non-frozen burritos you’ll find at Trader Joe’s, this is a simple thing to cook. Unwrap the burrito partially, then pop it into the microwave for about two minutes. You can also cook it in the oven if you’d like, but we opted for the microwave with this one. We had two hungry staffers who were fighting over this, so we got it into the microwave as quickly as we could and split it between the two of them. Sometimes, wrangling frozen food reviewers is like babysitting.


Trader Joe's Vegetable Samosa Burrito

This burrito contains what the package calls a “vegan samosa inspired filling.” That means it’s a potato-based filling that contains carrots, peas, and a tomato-based chutney. The potato portion gives it a savory flavor, while the chutney adds a bit of sweetness.

There’s also some spiciness here, though it’s a subtle spiciness rather than a bold or aggressive one. It might scare off the flightiest of spice-ophobes, but for anyone with a little bit of spice tolerance this adds a little extra kick that brings it all together.

One burrito contains 480 calories and 1,100 mg of sodium. Both of those numbers are going to be uncomfortably high for dieters. You could eat just half of this, like our reviewers did, but both of our reviewers had side dishes alongside their burrito halves. Eating just half a burrito by itself doesn’t seem like a satisfying lunch.

The Trader Joe’s Vegetable Samosa Burrito is great-tasting and vegan-friendly. This certainly isn’t an ordinary burrito — no, it’s an extraordinary one. Just be careful about the calorie count. We don’t recommend eating one of these every day, though we definitely recommend trying one if you’re looking for some Indian-Mexican fusion cuisine that can be heated up in flash.
