Two three-ingredient Trader Joe’s dinners

three ingredient trader joes dinners

Okay okay – my apologies for not doing a Bachelor in Paradise recap. We had a friend drop dinner off, and the dogs got in the pool for awhile. So it was kind of late before I started winding down for the evening, and I had some emails to get through. And friends, it just wasn’t going to happen. But I’m back here today with some super quick and easy dinners that I’ve had the chance to make with items from my Trader Joe’s haul the other day.

It’s easy to get caught in a dinner rut, and I needed some new options. Especially as we transition into some cooler weather, I need a change of pace. So, I got a bit creative and found some items for some dinners this week. Here’s the thing, each of these is just three items – and they are pretty healthy too!

Not only does this recipe call for just three ingredients, it takes less than 30-minutes to make as well. That is a huge win on a busy weeknight.
