Trader Joe’s Country Potatoes with Haricots Verts & Wild Mushrooms

Author: Healthnuttxo

So, I went to Trader Joe’s today (ME? Go to Trader Joe’s?! When does THAT happen… 😉 ) and bought these Country Potatoes with Haricots Verts & Wild Mushrooms. I’ve eaten it before, and pretty much loved it, so I feel it deserves some recognition here on HealthNuttxo!

I put the bag’s contents in a frying pan and cooked it – here’s how it looked in the pan.

Only one thing to say. MMM.

I remember the last time I bought these I cooked them up, people in my house were asking what smelled so good and if they could have some. It indeed, smells delicious!

After cooking up, I transferred it to my plate. There was potatoes, mushrooms, pieces of onions, and “Haricots Verts” as the package states. It was a bit greasy, but so tasty that I didn’t mind. The potatoes were thickly cut, some big pieces some small, and very soft and fluffy on the inside. The green beans were tender, flavorful, and delicious. Lastly the mushrooms, which I was ok about, some were big flat pieces and other pieces were more textured. Some of the pieces were very good, and others were kind of squishy in consistency. I could have eaten a different vegetable in place of the mushrooms, but they weren’t bad.

Overall, it was a bit salty (300 mg per serving), and had a garlicy and oniony flavor. So good! This one gets 4 1/2 stars, and will be a regular appearance in my grocery cart to buy at Trader Joe’s!

What’s something you buy again and again at Trader Joe’s (if you have been there) ?

    Ahh, I absolutely love Trader Joes’ Haricot Verts! I also love their frozen artichoke hearts, I only wish there were more in the bag!

    I consistently buy the sundried tomato hummus!
    How many servings are in a bag?

  • Healthnuttxo says:

    on the package it said there were “about 4” servings per bag, but I could have totally eaten the whole thing myself with a side of protein. It’s THAT good! Plus, I think potatoes are super easy to eat haha 🙂

    I am going to make a mushroom and potato tart for Thanksgiving using to use a bag of this. I will add a good amount of sliced, fresh mushrooms and no extra seasoning as seems to have enough. If needs more seasoning will add as cooking, but think will be OK. No extra potatoes as want a mushroom mainly tart. I was going to make such a tart anyway and checked online for recipes. I saw a potato/mushroom tart recipe and liked it. Then I saw this product at TJ’s today, so it clicked in my mind as a shortcut to my tart idea. I will post the results here .
