Trader Joe’s HARVEST GRAIN BLEND


UPDATE: THIS WAS OUT OF STOCK FOR SOME TIME BUT NOW BACK IN STORES (Jun 2022)

HARVEST GRAIN BLEND is a blend of beans and grains.

Ingredients: pearled couscous, orzo pasta, split baby garbanzos, red quinoa

I think its an excellent Trader Joe’s product. This grain blend makes a quick, easy side dish say instead of rice. While it makes a great side dish – shown here plated with broiled salmon – you could also plate it up as a “bed” and plate your main on top say a piece of salmon or chicken, or whatever your main is. Another idea is using this as the base of a protein bowl? That would work great. You might eat a bowl just topped with an egg, or tofu or what have you. You can make this mix with water, butter and a little salt. Even better would be to use broth which of course will make it even more flavorful. You could even toss in some veggies too if you like, maybe adding frozen peas or spinach (yum!) or mixed frozen veggies the last 3 minutes of cooking. It’s very easy to make and fairly foolproof.

Instructions: Bring 1 3/4 cups water or broth to a boil. Add 1 tbl butter. Add 1 1/4 cup harvest blend. Once its boiling again, reduce to simmer and cook covered for 10 minutes.

A 16 oz bag now goes for $2.99. This is something I buy it all the time. Easy, healthy, good for the pantry. Great for when you have “nothing to eat”.
