Simply Asia Vegan

spicy kung pao

I happened upon this item in the international section of my local Wal-Mart. Oh, to go back to shopping at Wal-Mart after Whole Foods Market or even the Publix in Ft. Lauderdale, horrible! That’s why I looked at the international offerings, I thought “Maybe I’ll find something new and different”.

Well I did. It’s Simply Asian Spicy Kung Pao and it is good. The best part is you can order it online. No kidding.

Careful though, not everything they make is vegan. 3 of 4 of their noodle bowls are, but the Roasted Peanut has anchovy extract in it. They do have nice nutrition facts on each and every product so take a look.


Frieda’s SoyTaco Meatless Filling

SoyTacoI love Frieda’s, though it is a bit high-end price-wise, even at Wal-Mart. After shopping at Whole Foods Market, Wal-Mart’s offerings are sorry, but it’s cheap. Very cheap cause there’s not much there to buy.
They do have many Frieda’s products in the produce section, I love Soyrizo and have posted a couple of my fave recipes on almost vegan: Soyrizo Potato Vegetable Saute and Soyrizo Veggies & Yellow Rice.
I have looked at the SoyTaco a million times, but always passed for something else. Well, I was so bored by the limited inventory, I grabbed it the other day just to try something different.
It’s good, it’s Frieda’s. I used it in a kinda different (and lazy) way. I had some cold rice, a few veggies, so I made a Mexican fried rice (no eggs) and the SoyTaco spiced and flavored it up just the amount I was hopping it would.
