Trader Joe's find of the week: Tom Yam Rice Snacks
If I could invent the perfect snack, it would be crispy and spicy, with lots of extras like nuts and a bonus from something exotic like lemongrass. Trader Joe's seems to have sensed this yearning of mine with Tom Yam Rice Snacks from Thailand, which are little discs of crunchy rice topped with cashews, chile and lemongrass. They're like having a little handful of tom yum soup in a snack, and they're individually wrapped so you won't be tempted to overindulge. I'll bet they would be awesome topped with minced ahi tuna for an appetizer, or crumbled over nappa cabbage as a better class of crouton. Also, they're vegan and gluten-free. Here's hoping they won't get randomly discontinued any time soon.
