Face it: Your pantry could use a spring cleaning. Our grocery store boo, Trader Joe, is just the guy for the job. This March, exciting seasonings, vegetarian staples and sweet treats are hitting his shelves—and you won’t want to miss out. Read on for our favorite new Trader Joe’s products to shop this month.
What’s New at Trader Joe’s in March? Ketchup Seasoning, Strawberries & Cream Gelato and More
1. Riced Hearts of Palm
Cauliflower is shaking in its leaves. Use this grain- and gluten-free gem as you would rice or quinoa. (It only takes five minutes to warm up, BTW.)
2. Vegetarian Meatless Cheeseburger Pizza
Your picky eaters will be overjoyed to find this 'za on the dinner table. Layered with cheddar cheese, red onion, tomato, sweet pickles, burger sauce and plant-based protein in place of beef, this burger-inspired pie is as tasty as it is unexpected.
3. Sriracha Sprinkle Seasoning Blend
Tart, bright and aromatic, sriracha is an absolute essential in our kitchen. But have you ever tried it in powder form? This blend is made with garlic, cayenne, vinegar powder, sugar and salt, so it can go on anything from deviled eggs to dry-rubbed ribs.
4. Calabrian Chili Spicy Pasta Sauce
In case that's not spicy enough for you, this creamy Calabrian chili sauce should do the trick. Pour it over tortellini, use it as a dip for mozzarella sticks or slather it on pizza dough.
5. Meatless Ground
There are countless ways to use these dried, textured pea protein crumbles. All they need is ten minutes of cooking to rehydrate, and you'll have the equivalent of one pound of ground meat. Ta-da.
6. Ketchup-Flavored Sprinkle Seasoning Blend
You know the ketchup flavor in TJ's Patio Potato Chips that are released every summer? That's what this tomato powder-based seasoning tastes like. Shake it onto fries, eggs, sandwiches and everything in between.
7. Slightly Coated Dark Chocolate Almonds
Tell the granola bar in your desk drawer to make room: You have a new favorite office snack. We'll chalk it up to the dry-roasted California almonds being tumbled in a barrel of chocolate and finished with cocoa powder and sea salt.
8. Strawberries & Cream Gelato
Hi, summer. We missed you. Gelato is made with more milk than cream, so it has a light, refreshing quality that you'll adore. (The strawberry purée, candied strawberry pieces and vanilla bean specks are just a bonus.)
