Living in a college dorm for the past two years has taught me the value of a good microwave dinner. When I need something quick and satisfying, Trader Joe’s is my go-to spot, and their Steamed Soup Dumplings are always a must-buy. I can’t resist grabbing a box or two every time I visit.

But as much as I enjoy the chicken and pork dumplings, I couldn’t stop thinking about the potential that a veggie-filled dumpling could have. Now, my dreams, and the dreams of many vegetarian Trader Joe’s fans, have finally come true.

Here’s why this is such exciting news: Trader Joe’s has just introduced a new version of their beloved Steamed Soup Dumplings. This time, they’re filled with delicious veggies. Same steaming hot dumpling but packed with flavorful vegetables that make every bite a taste sensation.

For vegetarian college students like me, this is a game-changer. It’s the perfect blend of convenience and health, ready in minutes in the microwave and ideal for those late-night study sessions or quick meals between classes.

Trader Joe’s New Vegetable Steamed Soup Dumplings 

Trader Joe’s, known for its unique eats and quick meals, just launched something exciting: vegan soup dumplings. These little wonders are like dough balls filled with warm broth and delicious fillings. They come frozen, so all you need to do is heat them for a savory treat.

Here’s why everyone’s talking about them:

  • Inspired by Chinese Xiao Long Bao
  • No gelatin – completely vegan
  • Filled with jackfruit, carrot, cabbage, spinach, and ginger
  • Affordable at $3.49 for a pack of six

Trader Joe’s calls them a “darling” and an “instant sensation” among customers. And they listened to the demand especially from vegetarians who were eager to try these dumplings.

Reddit is buzzing with excitement, too. “FINALLY!!!!! I’ve been craving soup dumplings forever,” said one thrilled fan. Another suggested, “They should sell them in bigger packs like, give us 24.”

Steps To Prepare Trader Joe’s Soup Dumplings

Here’s how to make the most of their new vegetable soup dumplings, according to enthusiastic Reddit users:

  1. Perfect Cooking Tips:
    • Stovetop Steaming: Users agree that steaming on the stovetop is the way to go. It makes the dumpling wrapper expand beautifully, ensuring a perfect consistency without getting mushy. It takes about 8 to 10 minutes a bit of a wait, but worth it for the taste!
    • Microwave Option: Short on time? Pop them in the microwave for around 2 minutes for a quicker fix.
  1. Enhanced Dining Experience:
    • Upgrade with Cabbage: For a gourmet touch, steam the dumplings on a bed of cabbage. This not only adds extra flavor but also prevents them from sticking to the steamer.
    • Dipping Sauce: Don’t forget to whip up a simple dipping sauce to complement the dumplings’ flavors.

These dumplings are not just a meal. Whether you prefer traditional steaming or a speedy microwave fix, Trader Joe’s vegetable soup dumplings promise to delight your taste buds and add a touch of culinary adventure to your day.

How to Turn Soup Dumplings into a Meal?

I love snacking on Trader Joe’s vegetable soup dumplings. They’re perfect on their own or as part of a heartier meal. Here’s how I enjoy them:

  • Over rice
  • With veggies like broccoli or green beans

For extra flavor, Trader Joe’s suggests pairing them with their Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce or Crunchy Chili Onion.

Today, I had these dumplings for lunch with Trader Joe’s Vegetable Fried Rice and Crunchy Chili Onion. The flavor and texture were fantastic, though I noticed they had less soup compared to the meat versions. Tip: Try microwaving them for slightly less than 2 minutes to keep them from getting too soft.

Eating these dumplings is part of the fun. You can:

  • Nibble or puncture the side to sip the soup
  • Then, finish the dumpling

It takes a bit of practice, but it’s worth it.

Now, I’m off to hone my soup dumpling skills and finish this delicious bowl.
