Sometimes, it can be hard to sit down and eat a real dinner, let alone make one. Between classes, extracurricular activities, and social obligations, eating proper meals often falls to the wayside.
Sometimes, life wins and dinner becomes an Olivia Pope style bowl of popcorn. If this sounds like you, have no fear! Spoon’s got you covered with the best vegetarian-friendly frozen meals from Trader Joe’s.
1. Gorgonzola Gnocchi
Pillowy potato pasta smothered in the creamiest gorgonzola sauce that comes together in 5 minutes? AKA, the easiest, tastiest, classiest dinner you can think of.
#SpoonTip: Add some spinach and dried herbs de Provence to elevate the flavor.
2. Thai Sweet Chili Veggie Burger
For our vegans out there, this burger is a must. Made from 8 kinds of vegetables, rice, and soy, these burgers are healthy and protein-packed with a pleasant kick of spice. For the most delectable burger out there, pair it with their Sweet Chili Sauce.
