For families, creating a pandemic pantry might mean ensuring you have enough to cook three meals a day for multiple people. We're big fans of Trader Joe's recipes for easy weeknight cooking, so when the coronavirus crisis hit, I turned to Trader Joe's to start stocking up.
Kids may love going to Trader Joe’s for the free stickers, hidden stuffed animals, and lollipops. But, for me, I have always loved the number of convenience foods this specialty food store provides, aka, entire gourmet meals I can microwave or throw into a single pan from frozen—and have ready sometimes in as little as 7 minutes. The (once) packed shelves can seem overwhelming for anyone to navigate, so we’ve created this list of 15 best meals from Trader Joe's recipes, combining veggies, proteins, whole grains, and flavor.
