One of the hardest parts of being a new vegan (or even an old seasoned vegan) is trying to keep up with all the new products out there. I must have spent over $50 looking for the "right" vegan cheese my first year being a vegan and I have over 50 vegan/vegetarian cookbooks in my arsenal but not all the recipes are the greatest. I’m the first born so I’m used to being a Guinea Pig and now I’m your Vegan Guinea Pig. So here are my recommendations and critiques. Let me know what you think!

Sweet ‘N Spicy Curry Tofu by Moo Moo’s Frozen Meals

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.


  1. I TOTALLY agree with you! It was horrifying! I almost took it back to WF, it was that bad. I'm not sure why WF keeps stocking it and can't seem to get in any of the Gardein stuff'd frozen things.

  2. I was wondering the same thing Jackie! I was looking for gardein stuffed turk'y for over a week and couldn't find it anywhere but this stuff was everywhere. So frustrating.

  3. A bad meal is the worst! I had the misfortune of so-salty-my-tongue-burned tofu the other day.
    You wonder if the people making the stuff try it before the package it. Hope you got a "do-over" after that meal!

  4. oh no! Well, they don't have that flavor here. I just tasted one and it was pretty good...the chickpea patties. I just discovered them at a store nearby.

  5. Disgusting. I just heated it up at work hoping to fill my tummy, and now I have nothing to eat. Individually, the ingredients sound delicious but together it is a heap of YUCK.

  6. Wow - maybe it's just my British palette that's accustomed to super spiced Indian food, but this is the best Vegan ready meal I've had in literally years. It's superb.
