Soy Tender Sandwiches

IMG_2045I had this for dinner last night. Here’s a quick vegan meal idea that is also a great, high protein recovery meal. I used:

  • Trader Joe’s Chickenless Crispy Tenders
  • Trader Joe’s Whole Wheat Hambuger Buns
  • So Good Vegan Miso Mayo
  • Sunja’s Medium Spicy Kimchi

I got the Miso Mayo and Sunja’s Kimchi from the local health food store, not from Trader Joe’s. It’s great that Sunja’s Kimchi is vegan, since kimchi from Asian markets and restaurants usually contains fish or shrimp.

The Miso Mayo tastes like mayo but with a strong soy miso component; add the kimchi and the sandwich has a strong Asian twist to it. It was delicious, tastes very “chickeny”, and was very filling.

  1. A Trader Joes just moved into our town. How are the prices on items like this in that store? Is it worth the trip through some intense traffic? Thanks for sharing.

    • The prices at Trader Joe’s are usually pretty good. This is why a lot of people call it “The poor man’s Whole Foods”. At least this is how it is in my area. Thanks for dropping by!

  2. These sound great! Several months ago a local news agency posted a story saying we’re getting a Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, and H&M here within the next year or two. A few days later (after all the excitement!!) they had to backpedal and admit none of it was actually confirmed. Well, we did get an H&M…fingers crossed for a Trader Joe’s next!

    • I honestly can’t wait for Trader Joe’s to open up near you. As versatile as you are, Trader Joe’s could offer some new possibilities for you to experiment with. Take care!
