The Molly Yeh-Approved Trader Joe's Grain Blend
By EMILY BOYETTE
Molly Yeh is the star of the Food Network’s hit show “Girl Meets Farm,” where she cooks delicious and trendy dishes in her minimalist kitchen. When Yeh sat down with other celeb chefs to talk about their go-to Trader Joe’s products, she said she can’t leave the store without grabbing the Super Seed & Ancient Grain Blend.
This TJ's grain blend costs five dollars, a great price for a bag full of good-for-you ingredients like flax seeds, buckwheat, millet, hemp seeds, amaranth, quinoa, and chia seeds. Yeh explained that this blend helped to add more omega-3's to her diet during pregnancy, and she simply sprinkled it into her oatmeal each morning.
This grain blend also makes for a perfect, highly nutritious granola substitute for topping yogurt and parfaits, though it isn't as sweet as your average granola, so a drizzle of honey is recommended. This TJ's product also makes a great addition to cold cereal and can be used in the batter of your favorite muffin or bread recipe.
