December of every year is my time to take a break from the kitchen, concentrate on finals and relax from the exhaustion of a year of writing, school work and regular good ole fashioned work. I usually end up eating everything out the freezer (which coincidentally helps clean the freezer) and it’s the perfect time of year to try out the latest in vegan frozen meals.
Moo Moo’s Vegetarian Cuisine has a couple of vegan options so I thought I’d give them a try. I’m growing more and more fond of curry so I thought the Sweet ‘N Spicy Curry Tofu would be the best one to try first. It’s not only vegan but gluten free as well, which is always a plus. Don’t get too excited though, all the pluses stop there. This had to be one of the singularly most disgusting things I have ever tasted in my life. It was a soft mushy mix of red cabbage, raisins, apples and pineapple. All these ingredients sound like the making of a delicious meal but put them together with whatever horrific spice blend Moo Moo’s came up with and you have a completely inedible dish. I made it through exactly two bites before I spit everything out, brushed and flossed my teeth to rid myself of the taste forever and threw the whole thing in the outside trash bin (because there’s no way I was going to keep this stuff in the house). I implore you, save your $5.
