Trader Joe's Hummus Grab

For dinner last night we had the smoky miso tofu sandwiches from Vegan Yum Yum. I didn't have the red miso called for in the recipe. I had yellow miso. I'm not a miso connoisseur, so I'm not sure if the flavor varied drastically from what the recipe intended. Nevertheless, the result was tasty. The tofu slices were smoky, sweet, and a little crispy. We ate them on ciabatta rolls with Veganaise, tomato, and lettuce.

Today we made a little journey to Trader Joe's over in Connecticut. We don't make this 45-minute trip frequently, but it's worth it to go every so often, because the prices are so much better than at our local supermarkets. I stocked up on olive oil, coconut milk, and ciabatta rolls (of course). Meanwhile, these somehow made their way into the cart.

For that lovely sight, I can thank my husband, the hummus fiend! My eyes lit up when he piled them on the checkout counter, one after the other. And apparently Jackson takes after us. He finished half a tub of the kalamata-flavored hummus in about 5 minutes. That's our boy!

And then there's this...

I'm not sure what to do with it, but I bet the internets can tell me. When you have someone who loves peanut butter as much as I do, something like this isn't gonna go to waste!

Have you used peanut flour? Or are you trying out any other ingredients for the first time? I'd love to hear about your experiments.


  1. Peanut butter cookies (with chocolate chips!), would my first thought. I have never used peanut flour either, but it sounds like a fun adventure.

  2. I've been eyeing the TJ's Peanut Flour for a while now, but have no idea what it would be good for either.
