Favorite Brands Convenient Foods, Condiments, Etc

#1 Postby veggieprincess » Wed Sep 19, 2007 9:02 pm

I looked through a few pages here and couldn't find a thread on this, so if one exists, I apologize.

What are some of your favorite Vegan Brands and specific items?

My all-time favorite pre-packaged meat is Tofurkey Sweet Italian Sausage. You can make so many dishes, sandwiches or eat it plain and cold. There is no one I have given this stuff too that doesen't absolutely love it!!!!!

Name anything you love:

Frozen Dinners

Condiments

Vegan Dairy Substitutes (looking for a yummy Vegan cheese)

Bars

ANYTHING! Thanks! :wink:

Frozen Dinners
Amy's cheeseless pizza is wonderful
Condiments
Veganaise is incredible, and I love nutritional yeast as well(I know...not a
brand)
Vegan Dairy Substitutes (looking for a yummy Vegan cheese)
Follow Your Heart Cheese, TSoy Delicious Peanut Butter Zig Zag and Turtle Trail, Tofutti Cream Cheese, and Tofutti Sour Cream
Bars
VEGA for training by far...the best tasting is Raw Revolution

Garbanzo Beans, Split Peas, Spinach, and Amaranth are all I need in this world.

Sorry they're not processed. :P

Potter pretty much summed it up nicely in my opinion.

I'm also a big fan of Green And Black chocolate bars. mmmmmmmmmmmmm. The mint is like a chocolate-mint induced mouth-orgasm. Fantastic.

I don't use Amy's Anymore. I'm the kind of Vegan that also reads the Factory labels. Processed on machinery that also handles Dairy. Pretty soon I won't eat anything processed from a factory( I'll only buy Store bought Pasta becouse makeing it is too much. But I'll wash it first.)

I have an 8 year old daughter that isn't Vegan, but I'd like to start incorporating in foods for her. I want a good "melty" cheese. I've found some of the cheeses don't melt very well.

Does the Follow Your Heart Cheese melt good?

What about other suggestions that kids might like? Thanks! :)

Melts better than any other I've tried. I made a vegan pizza earlier this year with it, I liked it.

The best cheese alternative in my opinion is a sauce made with nutritional yeast. Besides that, I don't like cheese substitutes at all, they are all yucky.....

Follow Your Heart Melts well but sometimes its good(in the case of pizza) to put it in the oven and about 2/3 of the way through flatten the cheese with a spoon...its easy and very soft like sour cream but doesn't always want to lay flat. Tofutti makes a good cheese too but its probably one of the most unhealthy "vegan" specific products on the market.

I love the Follow Your Heart Monterey Jack vegan cheese. I tried the cheddar, and mozzarella but didn't like them as much. Monterey is good on anything, and makes a great vegan pizza. I'm still having issues with melting it though.

Baked Tofu (any brand just watch out for honey on the ingredients)
Trader Joes 3 minute frozen brown rice
Siracha hot sauce
Braggs sauce (it's like soy sauce)
Tofutti better than cream cheese (on a toasted bagel with some picked-that-morning tomatoes mmmmmm)

And yeah that chocolate is tha bomb.

I'm going to try that sausage!!!

The trick with FYH mozz is to broil it a little at the end of cooking. Watch it though, cause there is a fine line between melted & burnt!! The chedder one is also really good in a cassarole.

I agree with all of veganpotter's picks actually except I don't care for nut. yeast very much, and I've never had Raw Revolution, is that a vega bar?

Newmann's own organics makes a great dark chocolate bar, I like Clif Shots mango, apple pie, vanilla, and orange cream during long runs, and Amy's Maple BBQ is awesome, oh and Amy's green goddess dressing
