I saw that nutty seedy dippy thing the other day but didn't buy it. Is it good?

I will only buy it if you get them to change the name to this.

The vegan cheese isn't good. So disappointed. Would have been awesome to have all pizza ingredients at one store (their fresh dough is fab).


that's a bummer. I was just at TJ's and saw vegan mozerella shreds and I think a colby/jack or cheddar/something blend?

I was intrigued by the nutty seedy dippy thing too, but I didn't buy it. I did, however, buy the shreds. I had them just melted on toast and I didn't like them at all. I guess i'm just not a fan of galaxy's stuff.

I always freeze leftover tomato paste in tablespoon size lumps on a plate, then move into a plastic container. But I still find the tube of paste convenient too.

Seriously, I've always got Tbsp sized chunks hanging around in a baggie in the freezer, but if the tube kind were cheaper (or if I had a TJ's anywhere near me) you better believe I'd use 'em. Convenience, man. Which reminds me, last time I was in the UK, I bought a tube of pureed garlic to use at my in-laws' (they don't eat garlic). Man, why can't I find something like that here? Damn I'm so lazy.


TJ's sells garlic paste in a jar.

ETA: I just realized that you don't have a TJ's near you so my comment was unhelpful and now I feel like a mocking jerk.

It's time to start an email campaign! And it's good to be seeing you back around the PPK again Meggs!

nutty seed dippy report: it is like eating bread with anise flavored lip gloss on...nothing special.

Well, I'm sold!

I actually hate anise, so I will pass.

That's disappointing. I'm going to have to make my own better nutty seedy dippy thing now just so I will have an awesome food to go with the name!

I have no idea what the TJ's one is (is it hummus consistency?), but I thought of this thread today when I was scanning a cookbook (Pure Vegan) at B&N and saw a recipe for something called dukkah. You dip bread in oil and then in the dukkah, which was a mixture of nuts, seeds, and spices. You can search the Look Inside on Amazon, but it was like this: http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/001416.html

Yes, the dukkah looks very much like the TJ's nutty seedy dippy stuff! I'm so glad to know the real name and have a recipe! Thanks Amy!

I was so excited when I saw the vegan cheese shreds in Trader Joe's today (I legit shrieked and jumped up and down) and rushed home to tell you guys... but everyone already knows. The PPK: always in the know.

I'm gonna try it on a breakfast sammich tomorrow. We'll see.

Yours will be the best. Please ship me a sample after you copyright/patent the name and recipe?

I'm pretty sure the TJ seed mix says "dukkah" on it, at least it does at my TJ.

I'm sure it says "dukkah" right on the package and I just didn't notice. It also turns out there is a dukkah recipe in VEW! So I'll probably just make that instead of making up my own. Sorry Meggs! You can still have some though. What part of the planet are you on these days?

We finally ate our Turkeyless roast tonight -- we loved it. I would say it's better than Field Roast and Tofurky. I didn't find the stuffing mushy at all, and it's been in our fridge since October. It was just like normal stuffing to me. The gravy was great too.

I made it according to their suggestion, putting the roast atop a bed of potatoes, carrots, celery, and onion tossed with olive oil, salt & pepper. I also brushed on the additional oil and smoked paprika after cooking. I baked it in my Deep Covered Baker (which was the perfect size) and it worked beautifully.

Hoping I can find another before they go bye-bye until next fall.

such a bummer about the TJ's vegan cheese shreds. i still have yet to try any vegan cheese. sometimes i hear the daiya wedges calling my name, but they are so pricey! i admit, i do miss a good cheesey slice of pizza. isa's tofu ricotta on pizza is pretty good though ;)

I love the wedges. I definitely think they're worth a splurge next time you need a treat.

I used the tj's cheese on top of pasta (not melted) and it tasted like parmesan. Loooved it.

i really don't think the TJs cheese is that bad, but i guess i haven't used it on anything in mass quantities. we first had it inside of squash quesadillas (a small amount) and last night we sprinkled some on top of meatball subs. both times it was fairly unnoticeable, just kind of melty/cheesy.

just asked my husband what he thinks... and he said he's sprinkled a bit in burritos lately too (i hadn't noticed), and he also tried it melted on chips and liked it fine.

We had the vegan cheese shreds on pizza tonight and liked it just fine (my non-vegan boyfriend liked it, too). It melted well, too. I don't tend to put a ton of cheese on pizza, so I don't know if that makes a difference.

Good dog. I haven't posted in here in forever, but I cannot abide by those vegan shreds! I really hate that it's repackaged Galaxy, but they make the packaging look similar to Daiya. Not right!
