Hunting for Specific Vegan Items
- jo_jo_ba Jun 25, 2010 08:14 PM
So, I've found myself totally and completely unable to find one of my staple fridge items in our grocery store anymore - the "Rice Grated Topping" from Galaxy Foods (http://www.galaxyfoods.com/Products/R...). I'd settle for their "Vegan" grated parm too, but no dice. Called Big Carrot and they don't have it either, VivaGranola.ca carries it but I didn't really want to order online... can anyone help?
The other thing I've been searching for is the Tofurky "Smoky Maple Bacon" tempeh strips (http://www.tofurky.com/tempehproducts...). I vaguely remember seeing them at Evergreen on Roncesvalles but I'm not entirely sure - I'm a Durhamite so trips into the city are few and far between!
If anyone can point me to a source for either of these I'd be so grateful!! If you're in the area I can bring you some blueberry pie in payment (been dying to make some haha)!
I actually found the parm at Superstore this weekend - they sporadically started stocking it again (go figure), and they have the sesame-garlic strips, so I might try those... never had tempeh before so I don't know what I'm in for!
Thanks for your help though, I would love to hit Panacea sometime too.
FYI the Big Carrot doesn't sell anything that is GMO, so some vegan staples can't be found there. I actually think that is an awesome policy but the carrot is just too pricy for me. Essence of Life has the best prices for "health food" in Toronto, bar none. Loving the big $10 tubs of Earth Balance!
