Mrs. T's has one vegan pierogie type. Be careful though because some have eggs in them and some don't.

eta: Okay, never mind. Apparently they must have changed their recipe and there are no longer any vegan ones.

Golden Gourmet potato and onion (check the kosher frozen section if you have one). Whole Foods here carries another brand that I can't remember. But it's stamped vegan on the front.

Yes - Golden Gourmet, that's the one.

ETA: You guys are so much better than I am at remembering brand names.

oh sorry, i don't know what the brands are, but both brands I've seen are local and they are just plastic wrapped on a styrofoam tray. i was just thinking that other areas probably had something similar.
not in the spirit of this thread at all, but i just made pierogies from Vegan Eats World and they weren't as time consuming as I expected, especially if you can get a helper in the kitchen. and i got 4 dozen out of one recipe, so we'll get a bunch of lazy meals out of them.

I spent an embarrassing amount of time searching for pierogi at the store tonight (no luck) AND put ramen in my cart and took it back out again twice. Thanks, thread.

I've seen veggie piorgies in the Amish market but never bought them or seen if they have egg. Are they a Jewish thing? We also have a kosher market that has a ton of stuff.

Our store sells a spinach potato pierogi in the kosher section. I can't remember the brand name though. So yummy.

They're an Eastern European thing. The majority of Jews in the U.S. are Ashkenazi, which means their food traditions are Eastern European.

Ahh ok, I'll check the kosher market, I've never had them but I'd like to try.

You should be able to get Golden Gourmet anywhere with a good kosher frozen section.

Also, Rich Whip! ::drooling emoticon::

The kosher section of your local mainstream grocery store can be full of vegan surprises. Like breaded eggplant cutlets - just pop them in the oven, then put some spaghetti sauce and daiya mozz on them for the last few minutes of baking and boom, eggplant parm. Or the Tabatchka (sp?) soups, lots of interesting and tasty vegan choices.

I love the Zatarain mixes because they cook up well in a rice cooker. I usually add some veggies - chop up an onion, a bell pepper, and some celery, perhaps - and some crumbled tempeh, a can of beans, or if I'm feeling particularly ambitious fry some veggie sausages on the side - and it becomes a much more substantial meal. Sometimes I add a little extra cajun seasoning (Zatarain's also makes a can of spice) if I add enough protein and veg that it needs more flavor.

Frozen hash browns! Yummm.

I don't buy those McCormick spice things with the meal card often, but they were handy and easy enough to veganize even when I was living in a hotel. Like this one: http://www.mccormick.com/Recipes/Main-D ... lings.aspx looks intimidating but you grab bisquick, olive oil or EB, soy milk, some veggie (or no chicken if you've got it) broth, and chopped up gardein/tofu/white beans/whatever, and you've got yourself a quick and decent meal.

I hesitate to put it on here because the ingredients can be a little on the iffy side and I'm not super careful about very small amounts of ingredients that could go either way, but some taco kits.

Or for that matter a lot of grocery stores sell soyrizo. You mix your tube of soyrizo with a package of tempeh or tofu or can of beans and boom, taco filling.

Harris Teeter has fresh pierogies in the deli section with the prepared foods. Some varieties are vegan, although I can't remember which ones exactly since I haven't looked at them in a while. I'd forgotten about them - glad this thread reminded me.

Those tabatchnick soups are sooooo good. and the mushroom and barley is only 80 calories so pretty doubt for those trying to watch their weight.

Vegan pierogies?! I never knew!

There are the Dr. McDougall soup cups. I've found them both at Giant and Wegmans. Also, from the same places, and Target, those little Go Picnic lunch kits. There's one with hummus and trail mix and crackers and dark chocolate. I think there's also a PB one and a black bean dip one. They're usually around $4.

Also, for anyone who has a Wawa (east coast convenience store/gas station), there are the hummus and pita kits in the refrigerated case. I usually pair that up with one of the vegetable cups because they don't give you enough bread for the hummus and I'm not one to let hummus go to waste!

Also for anyone who has a Wegmans nearby (again, mostly east coast,) their pre-made sushi makes a nice treat once in a while. It can be a little expensive, especially if you're like me and can't decide between the vegetable roll, or the mochi, or the inari, or the spring rolls . . . . You can also find Chipotle style burritos at the burrito counter, which are super easy to veganize.

Another go-to meal for me: bagel and hummus. Maybe add some avocado if I'm feeling fancy.

Yes! I like them as a lazy base; I sauté onion, celery, and carrot, add some extra seasoning, et voila!

7-11 has a bunch of vegan options in their stores, a lot of ready made meals.

http://vegnews.com/articles/page.do?pageId=2758&catId=8

I know that is kind of an old article, but I have seen the vegan options when I occasionally go into a 7-11. I have a friend on a health-food kick, and keeps posting on Facebook/Instagram lately about all the cool vegan stuff she finds at 7-11 (she drives a lot for work, so she eats on the road a lot). This is recent too, so I know they exist!

I have been to a few 7-11s and all I can find are the mint cookies. :/

Why do they do this in New York City, where you can't throw a rock without hitting a vegan restaurant? How about offer the vegan meals at 7-11 of Bufu, Montana? I mean, I'm being ungrateful here, but if I'm in NYC my problem is usually how to stuff all the vegan food around me into just one stomach, not the opposite.

moshe's is a small philly company, so their sammiches and whatnot tend to only be available locally in 7-11s. i used to get them a lot when i worked near a 7-11. i don't know if they're still available, since that was 4 years ago, and i hadn't searched it out.

ok, i looked on their website, and it looks like 7-11 must have dropped them. that's unfortunate, but great that it was around while it was convenient for me. :-) http://www.moshesfoods.com/
