Updated 11/2/12 *The win­ners are– Katie! Lois! Mary! You are the lucky win­ners! I will be in touch for your ship­ping information.*

Some babies don’t wait the full term to enter this world and the same can be said for cook­books. I’ve been so focused on my early Novem­ber drop date for The I Heart Trader Joe’s Veg­e­tar­ian book, imag­ine my sur­prise when Ama­zon began ship­ping them early!

Like any proud mama, I want to share the love, which is why we’re going to do a giveaway!

Leave a com­ment with your favorite TJ’s goodie and you’ll be entered to win a copy of the book! US res­i­dents only (sorry!). I’ll pick 3 folks next Friday.

Happy nom­ming!

    I love the Man­drin orange ‘chkn’ stir­fry and really enjoy the TJ’s baked tofus!

  2. jen says:

    I don’t even know if I can pick just ONE TJs favorite?!?! But I do love those meat­less meatballs…as well as the Spinach Kale Greek Yogurt Dip, the Black Bean and Quinoa tor­tilla chips, and their unsweet­ened Vanilla Almond Milk! Told ya I couldn’t just pick one!

  3. Amanda D says:

    It wouldn’t be fair to make some­one pick such a thing!
    But I do crave the black bean enchi­ladas every sin­gle minute of every day.

  4. Marie W says:

    I’m a huu­uge fan of their mint chip ice cream. It tastes so nat­ural and refresh­ing and the choco­late chips are actu­ally made of really good choco­late!
    Oh, and the cin­na­mon apple snack sticks! Oh my…

  5. Amy says:

    My favorite TJs item is the store that is com­ing to my city next year!! :) (seri­ously, if I have to pick, since I’ve never been in one yet, is the chocolate/candy cov­ered sun­flower seeds I received as a gift from a friend).

  6. Lois says:

    My fam­ily and I love to build Salad Sun­daes with organic let­tuce and veg­gies from TJ’s. Favorite top­pings include wal­nuts, shaved parm and feta.

  7. MollyG says:

    Oh man, too many to choose. Their kale chips for being so darned afford­able. Their hum­mus for going great on my salad (that I’m eat­ing right now!). Their repack­aged Gardein prod­ucts for being so much cheaper than any­where else! And so many more!

  8. Ashley says:

    I love all of Trader Joe’s yummy hum­mus fla­vors! I go through at least (most likely two) con­tain­ers every week

  9. Mary L. says:

    I love their vegan cook­ies. Must buy on every trip. Con­grats on the early release of your book. Look for­ward to check­ing it out! Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. Aimee says:

    The cherry choco­late chip soy creamy ice cream. so amazing!

  11. Lee Ann says:

    I don’t have a favorite, since I’ve only been to one and only got to try a few things, but what I really like about TJ’s is that they have signs clearly marked vegan (so you don’t have to read every label) and that they are more than happy to print a list for you of every­thing in the store that is vegan. Count­ing the days until one opens here.

  12. Lisa says:

    A favorite? So hard! I think I have to go with the chick­en­less man­darin chicken.

    Con­grats on your cookbook!

  13. Beth says:

    I’m pretty much addicted to TJ’s Mediter­ranean Hum­mus! :)

  14. moonsword says:

    Right now my favorite is their Spiced Cider. It’s just that time of year when I need to have it all heated up with some Hal­loween cook­ies. :)

  15. Erica Roses says:

    Egg­plant hum­mus and their repack­aged Popchips. Yep­pers, those make me quite happy :-)

  16. val says:

    just dis­cov­ered the frozen veg­e­tar­ian samosas–new favorite obses­sion! (con­grats on the book!)

  17. There are so many things I love at TJs — I always stock up when I’m near one! I’d have to say that the freeze dried fruits are some of my favorites right now!

  18. J Abshire says:

    It is hard to choose a (!) favorite, so I’ll list a few: ched­dar cheese with carmelized onion (oh my) — melt a lit­tle of that on some TJ’s sprouted multi-grain bread with some thinly sliced fresh tomato and it is a fab­u­lous lunch. I also really like the masala veg­gie pat­ties wrapped in the frozen gar­lic naan bread. Quick & yummy meal with a salad. The triple gin­ger cook­ies make my heard bleed for joy. The almond crois­sants are pretty much to die for, too. OK, I’ll stop now. I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing your cook­book live.

  19. Jeremy says:

    So tough to choose just one, but the Thai veg­etable gyozas are so deli­cious! So many options to choose from at Trader Joe’s…

  20. Jenny says:

    I recently bought their lighter guac (guac + greek yogurt). It dis­ap­peared across two meals. Woops! :-D

  21. Beth says:

    Oh my god… the COOKIE BUTTER!!!

  22. Alicia says:

    My favorite also has to be the cookie but­ter. By the spoonful.

  23. Karen says:

    Don’t enter us in the con­test, because we already received our copy! So excit­ing! The book looks fan­tas­tic! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

  24. danielle says:

    I didn’t even know TJ’s was com­ing out with a veg cook­book, and vegan ver­sions of each recipe to boot?!?! Awesome!

  25. Natasha says:

    No Pudge Brown­ies OMG SOOO GOOD! though they are not Vegan, and they no longer carry them they were a won­der­ful treat while they lasted.
    I Love the Thai veg­etable gyozas .
    I am recently turn­ing over a new leaf in life and becom­ing VEGAN and trader Joes is such a great place to shop they have alot of options even for my non Vegan hubby.

  26. stevem says:

    My favorite is a sim­ple cre­ation: a spoon­ful of TJ’s pump­kin ice cream between two thin triple gin­ger snaps. Yum!

  27. Amy says:

    I love that Trader Joe’s has PDF lists on their web­site of the vegan and gluten-free prod­ucts they carry! My favorite is their exten­sive and afford­able nut selec­tion. Con­grat­u­la­tions on the cookbook!!

  28. Jen says:

    Ughh.… If I have to pick ONE, it would be TJ’s cherry choco­late chip soy creamy… and num­ber 2 would be like 16 way tie :)

  29. Sue says:

    I love so many things at TJ’s, but I would have to say I am addicted to their dried apples! All of their dried fruit is amaz­ing, actually.

  30. debbie says:

    I just dou­ble checked your request for a favorite, and looks like it doesn’t have to be veg­e­tar­ian. Although roughly half of our meals are veg­e­tar­ian, we do eat chicken and fish. My fav is the Chicken Tikki Masala. I usu­ally serve TJ’s Gar­lic Naan or Indian bread on the side and stir fry some of their organic pea shoots. I’m in heaven! Con­grats on the new release!

  31. Jackie Rolnicki says:

    I love the vegan “meats” they carry. I try not to use them too often, but they are a nice treat every once in a while!

  32. Megan says:

    I’m addicted to TJ’s hummus.

  33. celine says:

    Con­grats, Kris! As far as a TJ goodie goes, I have to pick their flaxseed peanut but­ter. Because, peanut but­ter, man. There’s no way not to pick that.

  34. Lori says:

    I love buy­ing sta­ples at TJ’s…their maple syrup, bal­samic vinegar…inexpensive and great quality!

  35. Slynn says:

    Con­grat­u­la­tions! Oh to pick one thing… the veg­etable masala burg­ers are my favorite veg­gie burg­ers ever. And yes, cookie butter!

  36. Katie says:

    I look the tamales they have! They are great!

  37. Mary says:

    For me it is the trail mixes — those won­der­ful blends of dried fruit and nuts. So dif­fi­cult to pick just one. And so dif­fi­cult to get home with­out open­ing the bag in the car and dig­ging in.

  38. Johanna says:

    Work­ing at Trader Joe’s is a blast, and my favorite prod­ucts are always evolv­ing, but some have stayed: Double-Roasted Salsa and Organic Hum­mus to name a cou­ple. I am just psy­ched that we have organic/raw coconut oil. I use it in bak­ing mostly, but in the skil­let as well.

  39. Amanda N. says:

    Oooooooo…if we only get to pick one, I would say their soy chorizo. We use it to spice up our Tofu Scrambles…SO YUMMY! Con­grats on the book!

  40. Stacey says:

    I love TJ’s veg­e­tar­ian canned chili. Also — their steamed lentils… Yikes — this was def­i­nitely tough to pick just one thing!

  41. Lee Ann says:

    I can’t wait until TJ’s opens here. All the deli­cious things that every­one has mentioned…
