Trader Joe’s Organic Whole Green Beans Review

Trader Joe's Organic Whole Green Beans

It’s time to eat our veggies, folks. While we love ourselves some comfort food (and it’s pretty clear that our readers do too), we can’t indulge in pizza and mac and cheese every day. So today we’re checking out some greens: Trader Joe’s Organic Whole Green Beans, to be precise.

We actually do really enjoy green beans when they’re cooked properly, so despite our insatiable pizza cravings, we actually think we’re going to find plenty to enjoy here.

According to the package, you can heat these in the microwave or on the stovetop. We wanted to see how they’d turn out on the stovetop, so we went with that method, but if you want to see the cooking instructions for either method, scroll down to the package scans at the bottom of this review.

Now, the consistency of your green beans will vary based on how long you cook them. We undercooked ours just a little bit, because we like our green beans to retain a little bit of their crunch, even when heated up. And it worked!

As far as flavor, there’s not a whole lot to talk about here. These turned out great, in our opinion. Despite being frozen and then heated in boiling water, they retain that fresh taste. This is especially clear in the subtle aftertaste, which leaves lingering hints of earthiness in your mouth. While these don’t exactly taste like they came straight out of a garden, they do taste about as close as you can reasonably expect from a bag of frozen veggies.

If you’re into doctoring these up, you can always add some salt or butter — or both. Of course, these would also be great in a casserole. For this review, however, we just ate ours plain.

Trader Joe’s considers 1/5 of the bag to be a serving. If you eat that much, you’re looking at 35 calories and virtually no sodium. If you end up eating the entire bag in a sitting, you veggie-loving scoundrel, you’re up to 175 calories. We’re not sure how the sodium scales upward, but we’re willing to go out on a limb and say you’ll still be consuming a negligible amount of sodium if you eat the whole back at once.

The Trader Joe’s Organic Whole Green Beans are a tasty treat for veggie lovers. Whether You slather them in butter, add them to a casserole, or simply eat them straight out of the pot, there’s a lot to enjoy here. These green beans make for a great side dish for a grander meal.

It turns out, eating your veggies doesn’t have to be painful at all!
