When I was in Trader Joe’s last week, I was looking for some kind of sun-dried tomato sauce or pesto or something like that to spread on toast or bread or burgers. I thought I had seen something like this before there, but I couldn’t find anything like that on this particular day. I did find Trader Joe’s Roasted Red Pepper Spread with Eggplant & Garlic. I checked the ingredients and there was no gluten and no onion!!! There were under 10 ingredients (major bonus) and all of them seemed to be “Kim friendly”. Another bonus? Under $2! How can you not love Trader Joe’s?
I have used this spread now in a dozen ways. I have topped salads with a tablespoon or 2 of this spread & then a tablespoon of plain Greek yogurt. I have spread on a toasted French roll (also from Trader Joe’s). I have topped my turkey burger with the spread & then topped with goat cheese, stuck under the broiler & let it get all melty; then I placed the burger on top of some grilled eggplant slices. I have used on my turkey tacos & Mexican pizzas. I have used on my turkey sandwiches. Really, the possibilities are endless. This would be great to dip foccacia bread into or I bet it would taste great in an omelet or scrambled eggs too! I just now thought of that!
I highly recommend this product. If you are watching what you eat, it is low in calorie, too, at 15 calories/tablespoon and only 0.5 grams of fat.
