Has anybody else seen the black truffle oil? It's 4.99 for a decent sized container. My diet is about to get wayy fattier, as i will be putting that shitake on everything.
I am excited to hear that the holiday stuff is out! I cannot get enough of the lemur tea.

I noticed when reading the Thanksgiving edition of the Trader Joe's Fearless Flyer that one of the featured items is a wild rice pilaf with butternut squash & mushrooms. And it's vegan! I didn't see it in my store, but I wasn't looking for it. I believe it's in the refrigerated section. I'm going to check it out on my next visit. I did pick up a box of candy cane joe-joes, a package of the frozen breaded turkey-less roasts with cranberry stuffing & gravy, the vanilla cinnamon black tea, and the candy cane green tea.

I haven't seen the turky's at my TJ's--they had the big roast like they had last year which was over by the tofu and whatnot. Where are the little maybe-Gardein guys? Are they with the chick'n strips and so on?

They discontinued the silken tofu, which makes me sad.

No more silken tofu? Are you kidding me? Good thing I stocked up the other day when I was there.

Yep, I found the Gardein-y roasts in the freezer with the veggie burgers and chick'n strips.

Wait, are we talking about the refrigerated soft tofu that is not labeled with a texture and you just have to buy it to know it is soft/silken, or are we talking about the shelf stable stuff in the aseptic packages?! I don't want either one to be discontinued!!!

The shelf stable stuff. I went to buy some on Saturday to make quiche and couldn't find it, so I asked for help. The nice guy went to double-check that there definitely wasn't any, and he came back and told me it was discontinued.

SO MUCH HEARTBREAK.

I found the silken tofu in the section above the frozen foods. It was weird. Totally out of place but I needed it for a recipe and glad I found it.

If we're thinking of the same handcreams (pack of 3 in foil tubes), I looked at them today and they contain honey.

The little turkey-less roasts were by the ice cream at my TJ's! They're insanely delicious out of the oven.

I feel grumpy about losing the aseptic tofu - it made really great mayo and sourcream. I also haven't been able to find soyrizo, and think someone mentioned that it may have been discontinued?

Has anyone had the premade rice noodles turn out well? Is there a trick I am missing? The package directions say that you need to put them into boiling water for 1.5 to 2 minutes, and they were still a hard block at that point. I ended up having to soak them for a really long time to get them to separate and be noodley.

Ditto! I remember thinking that it was a random place to find them, but I needed them so it was okay.

NOoooo! How can they do this to us? It tastes better and is half the price of other shelf stable tofu! Plus, it's nice to be able to grab some while I'm at TJ's. It's a sort of newish product too. I'll have to buy it all up if I can find any.

NOOOO! That's so sad and disappointing. I try to keep 2 or 3 of these in my pantry & just used my last one this weekend. Hopefully there are still some more on the shelf so I can hoard. wahh

I am totally stealing this and using it the next time they describe a food or beverage to be crack-like. It won't be a long wait.

I tried the stuffed turk'y cutlets things, and I love them! Also I agree about the coconut cashews. When I got to the end of the bag, I was wild-eyed trying to scoop out tiny pieces and coconut into my mouth. Not a pretty sight.

Did y'all see in the fearless flyer this week they have a new vegan wild rice stuffing? Actually says 'vegan' in the description

It's the thanksgiving issue...no mention of the vegan roasts or anything though.

Wanna try that stuffing!

I bought a jar too! I also haven't opened it yet, but I am supper excited to use it.

Have either of you used this yet? I bought a jar, because Thai, but I have no idea what to do with it and don't want to open it until I have a plan.


I liked the little stuffed turk'y things too!

I need recipe ideas for that dry chili paste, too! I made one pretty subpar curry with it a couple weeks ago - I was exhausted and just sort of winged it and unfortunately it didn't really come together. I googled around a little to see if I could find any tasty sounding recipes using it (or something similar) and didn't see anything. I like the flavor of it and don't want to waste the rest of the jar.

It sounds like the type of chili paste that a lot of traditional Thai recipe would call for a spoonful of in soups, like a Tom Kah or Tom Yam. I'm guessing it's concentrated, so a small spoonful would make sense to fry in oil at the beginning of a curry dish, right before you'd add the actual curry paste.

I did use the Thai chili paste a while ago, but I can't remember exactly how. I think it was good, but I guess not good enough to be memorable or make me go stock up on more.

Meatless Turkey-Style roasts in my freezer, ready for Thanksgiving! They look SO good for faux turkey. Not all gelatinous like Tofurky roasts. I'm not sure if I'll sample a roast now, or hold out on one for Christmas. Hmmm. Such yummy decisions.

At my store, they replaced the meatless meatballs, which is a huge bummer. I hope it's only for the holiday season, because I freaking love those!
