I've just done refried beans and/or daiya this time. Hummus is good, i like to add sprouts when i do hummus quesadillas. Pb&j might be good. Mashed black beans and sweet potatoes.

I need some awesome quesadilla recipes to try.


Last night I sauteed some fresh red peppers with kale and a chopped up serrano and garlic, then threw the red peppers and kale in a tortilla with daiya pepperjack. I mashed some avocado on top and added pico and fresh lime. It was simple and honestly a last minute throw-together, but it was good; the serrano gave it some heat and the garlic was a good addition without being overwhelming.

I think for the next attempt I'm going to utilize my leftover VEW chorizo tempeh crumbles with potatoes and cheese.

Spinach, cremini's, and provolone are another "to be attempted." Or maybe I'll use chard. (The garden is coming in, and man alive, have I got a shiitake ton of chard to use up...)

Tofutti cream cheese, garlic powder, and black pepper makes a very tasty quesadilla in a pinch.

For a minute I thought you had found Tofutti at Costco and I just about had a heart attack jumping into my car.

They had big tubs of coconut oil, Panda puffs and Clif Mojo bars (all vegan assortment) when I briefly looked around tonight.

I found tasty perogies! Made the implanted bacon flavour ones and hubby was raving over deliciousness. I will have to grand get more before the magic dumplings disappear

They didn't have the fresh tortillas this time; I hope they get them back in. Im ruined for the regular supermarket kind now.

We got the Tuscan Bean Salad they were sampling. It's really good! Chick peas, navy beans, sun dried tomatoes, roasted red pepper, barley, and some kind of basil/garlic/canola oil dressing. We debated spending $7.50 on it thinking it was too big a container, but we managed to eat it all yesterday as lettuce wraps.

Has anyone seen Field Roast lately? My Costco, according to employees, has ZERO vegan protein-y items......not even any tofu. I would so love to get FR here (hopefully cheaper than WF).....I'm in the Seattle area FWIW.

Haven't seen field roast since the holidays. I'm due for a Costco trip, though, and I'll certainly take a look.

Please let me know if you find it. We were at Mission Valley Costco maybe a month ago and they didn't have it.

Costco here has stopped carrying the giant jars of vegan Better Than Bouillon. Now they only carry beef and chicken flavors. I sent them an email and they said it wasn't selling well enough. Well, boo.

Woah! My costco just started carrying 2-packs of speculoos spread. It's called Cookinotti and it appears to be vegan.
This stuff:

IS THAT WHAT SPECULOOS SPREAD IS?!?!

I might cry because I want it so badly now that I know what it is. So badly.

YES! The brand I've had before is Lotus and I think that's the one that started the whole craze, but this knock-off is EXACTLY like the Lotus brand one. SO GOOD. Half a jar is already gone just with a spoon.

A bulk purchase of speculoos spread is exactly what I want, and exactly what I don't need.

ETA: weird that the label says "butter cookies" - i thought they couldn't do that unless it contained butter? Is it really vegan? So confusing

California hep-A cases linked to frozen antioxidant blend organic berries... (ETA I orginally said recall but it's not clear to me whether they're recalling them or not)


http://imperialbeach.patch.com/groups/b ... -linked-to

Six cases of hepatitis A that are believed to be linked to frozen berries sold at Costco stores have been confirmed in California, including patients in San Diego, Orange and Riverside counties, the state Department of Public Health officials have announced.

The cases are part of a multi-state outbreak, and while three of the California patients required hospitalization, no deaths have been reported.

At least 30 cases are being investigated nationwide, health officials said.

The state health department warned consumers not to eat Townsend Farms Organic Antioxidant Blend frozen berries sold at Costco. The six California patients all ate the berries, according to CDPH.

Costcos are located in several communities in San Diego County, including Mission Valley, La Mesa, Chula Vista and Carlsbad.

"People who have bought this product should discard it if still found in their home," CDPH Director and State Health Officer Ron Chapman said. "Anyone who has consumed this specific product in the last 14 days should contact their doctor to discuss possible hepatitis A prevention and treatment options.

"The product has been pulled from Costco shelves, health officials said, and the company is working to notify its customers who purchased the berries.

Hepatitis A can lead to hospitalization and severe illness, although most people recover completely, according to the state. Symptoms include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, clay- colored bowel movements, joint pain and jaundice – a yellowing of the skin or eyes.

Symptoms generally develop two to six weeks after consuming contaminated food or drinks.

Butter flavored ritz crackers are vegan. That always amuses me.

Yeah, there's no butter in it! And it's definitely made of those speculoos gingery biscuits, not sugar cookies.
