Vegetable Biryani – Food Review – Trader Joe’s

Vegetable Biryani – Trader Joe’s

Somewhat disappointing.

This is a rice dish with a small amount of vegetables and beans added.  There’s a mild to medium heat that builds to a medium heat over a few bites.  There are some vegetable dumplings (ingredients not specified) which are tasteless to slightly odd tasting.  They remind me of turkey dressing but dry and lacking flavor.  There are a fair amount of peas, a fair amount of dryish lima beans and small flecks of red something mixed in with the yellowish basmati rice.  This a one compartment frozen meal.  There’s no sauce.

To sum things up, this is; edible, okay for a change of pace, not especially good for what it’s supposed to be, modestly priced, a single serving frozen entrée.

Calories: 520 per package (listed serving size is a half package – really?)

Price: $2.49

    This was awful. The dumplings were a nightmare of mushy yet pasty dry and weird-tasting gummy balls. Biryani is one of my favorite dishes and I felt like I was punished. The peas, raisins and things were a bright spot but few and far between. Heat would’ve been a welcomed distraction but ultimately nothing could keep me. I trashed it. 😖

      Thanks again for adding your comments. I’m going to give it a second chance, but I had a similar first experience as you.

    I don’t find the dumplings dry or lacking flavor at all! In fact they are my favorite part of this dish and I wish there were more of them! This is one of my favorite trader joes frozen vegan meals.
