The pros: Trader Joe's Asian Vegetables with Beijing Style Soy Sauce is a solid blend of Asian veggies with a thick and flavorful sauce.
The cons: Nothing stands out.
The verdict: If there is one aisle I don't spend a lot of time in it's the freeze aisle. Not because I don't love looking, but it always seems to be the most crowded. To be more specific, I am happy to go blast right through the veggie aisle. It's not that I don't love veggies. They're just less inspiring to write about.
When I picked this up initially, did not think of it being drastically different from Trader Joe's Stir Fry Vegetables. Truth is that this is a solid blend, if not more flavorful blend to pair with a meal.
The big bonus here is the sauce. On its own, this sauce is soy based but thickened into a syrupy sauce. It's a sauce you'll want to make sure you mix throughout the veggies. It's a bit too potent to enjoy on its own.
The veggies packaged here seemed like a more balanced variety of beans, snap peas, carrots, and baby corn than the stir fry mix. There is less of the mushrooms and water chestnuts. Regardless, this came out well in the microwave and oven.
For $2.69 it's not a bad mix to pick up. I'd repurchase this.

It's funny that you said you often pass by the veggie section because I do too. I haven't tried this yet so I was glad to see you reviewed it. Now I'm not a huge fan of baby corn, they seem kind of off to me taste-wise so I would have to pick those out but this does seem like a tasty mix.
Hey Dag! This and the stir fry mix were both good. This has the bonus of the sauce which if you are having it with rice are a solid pairing. And yes, for me it is so hard to sit and write about and describe veggies in over 300 words. Thanks as always for stopping by!
Love this - even with a fried egg on top for breakfast
Yum! I did not even think about that Gail! I'll have to give that a try. Thanks so much for stopping by!
