A New York lawyer's adventures with animal-free eating
Tag Archives: mushroom
I’m constantly on the lookout for vegan frozen lunches, just because they’re so much more convenient (and usually cheaper) than other options. I recently tried Tabatchnick Barley & Mushroom Soup and was a big fan.
The package has 2 frozen pouches in it, but I found that I needed to eat both to get a decent meal. When combined with some bread, it was great! Good flavor, pretty hearty… what’s not to like?
Verdict: I’ll definitely get this again.
I ran across Aunt Trudy’s Vegan Mushroom & Leek Fillo Pocket a couple of weeks ago at my local Hannaford. It’s always exciting to me when I find something vegan for lunches, so I picked up several of them.
I must admit, I was excited to try this sandwich for dinner – I love leeks and mushrooms, and the picture on the package made it look fabulous. Unfortunately, that was not at all how it turned out… It pretty much looked like a big sloppy mess. The fillo dough practically disintegrated, and the inside was dark green/brown mush.
It was unappetizing enough that I almost didn’t eat it after all. But I decided to at least try it. Which was a mistake. It was not good. It wasn’t horrible, but it was barely acceptable. And I have really low standards for food. I eat everything! Needless to say, I had a few bites, then stopped.
All was not lost, however. I had some fabulous Haagen Daaz mango sorbet in the freezer, so I had that for dinner. 🙂
Verdict: Meh. I wouldn’t try this variety again.
