Vegetarian Recipe: Figgy Blue Sandwich and a Cookbook #Giveaway!

Last Updated on

I am a huge fan of blue cheese and when I came across this recipe in The I Love Trader Joe’s Vegetarian Cookbook: 150 Delicious and Healthy Recipes Using Foods from the World’s Greatest Grocery Store I knew I just had to try it. The combination of flavors sounded very unique and I am always looking for creative ways to add vegetarian meals into my diet. You can read my review of this cookbook HERE and if you continue reading you will find not only a delicious recipe but a chance to win this cookbook for yourself! It is filled with creative ways to reduce your meat consumption and the recipes are all very easy to make. Even if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you, this cookbook would be a great addition to your collection. Adding a vegetarian recipe to your meal plan is an easy (and tasty!) way to reduce your carbon footprint!
