I knew you guys would have excellent suggestions! Unfortunately, I can't eat mushrooms anymore, so I can't benefit from those options (still makes me kinda mad at my body).

Chicki - do you have a recipe for Pad Se Ew? I love that dish, but have only had it in restaurants.

torque - gochujang is officially on my list! Bring on all the spicy!

dandykins - those recipes look amazing!


the recipe in Vegan Eats World is amazing. So good. It really tastes EXACTLY like it does in the restaurants.

The Pad Kee Mao is also really REALLY good and the recipe is on her blog:
http://veganlatina.com/a-drunken-noodle ... d-kee-mao/

if you don't have Vegan Eats World, I highly recommend it!


YES! Make that Pad See Ew recipe ASAP. One of my fave Asian grocery items (along with canned mock duck, all of the soy sauces, cheap miso and veggie gyoza) are little snack packs of seaweed. Be careful because sometimes fish gets snuck in their but finding the vegan kind is totally worth it.

Also, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the mochi! It's an acquired texture for sure, I remember trying the first one and being like 'nope, this is wrong' and then trying again and again and now I adore mochi!

I must thank you again for introducing this amazingness into my life. I put it in my grits this morning - SO GOOD. I'm almost all the way through my first jar.

Angry lady sauce is the best! And just check out all the sauces really.

Also agreed with those recommending to check out the jerky section. Check the labels closely though, I've bought soy jerky without looking that ended up having fish ingredients.

Veggie dumplings in the frozen section are often vegan.

Canned gluten is good to have around, plain or in curry sauces. Also around the tofu section you should find a lot of mock tofu meats. I got "crispy chicken" that cooked up in bbq sauce to make a realllly good spare ribs type meal

If you like Japanese food, then I recommend Miyoko Schinner's cookbook, Japanese Cooking: Contemporary and Traditional.

Also, chili bean sauce is great for making eggplant that tastes like it's from a Chinese restaurant.

I found a variety of Angry Lady sauces (all without any english, of course) and just took a shot at what looked right, and OH MY FRIGGING GOD THIS STUFF IS AMAZING.
I slathered it on everything and ate til I got hiccups (as I do with all good hot things) and mwuahahaha. This shiitake is FABULOUS.

So, angry lady sauce on my breakfast again led me to search. Angry Lady is apparently quite the awesome lady.
http://www.womenofchina.com.cn/html/report/1163-1.htm
And I found a recipe for reproducing it, but previous adventures making harissa and nearly pepper-gassing my entire college coop suggest that as long as Angry Lady is willing to make it for me, I will keep buying it.

ETA: if you are nut allergic, it contains peanuts, apparently, but my label didn't say anything about peanuts.

ETA #2: some ideas on how to use it here. I have just been slopping it on everything, but these ideas are pretty sweet. I can't wait to try it with peanut butter (i will try to eat it with noodles or something instead of just with spoons but let's be honest....) https://www.quora.com/Chinese-Food/What ... 2%E5%A6%88

My local Asian grocery has tempeh! At long last, I can make some of the tempeh recipes [without making tempeh myself because c'mon, I barely like cooking]!

She is a badass!! And now I want to buy all of her products, just to throw support at someone who has that kind of work ethic and compassion.

I feel like I haven't even scratched the surface of what I can use the chili crisp in. So far, it's gone in a LOT of rice dishes, breakfast grits, egg roll dipping sauce, and on a couple of different sandwiches. Mixed in to chickpea salad was especially delicious!

I love Asian markets. It is where I can find the cheapest beans and rice and the variety is outstanding.

I found bean curd skins once, and they were wonderful. They looked like tofu intestines. ;)

https://tastespace.wordpress.com/2013/0 ... curd-skin/

I also like finding vegan kimchi, miso, toasted sesame oil, some spices (like mustard seeds) for cheap, tofu (I like the texture of fresh tofu for scrambles), mushrooms (dried and the fresh ones are usually very cheap for the exotic ones like enoki and oyster), nori, and bulk nuts. And other randomly cheap/new fresh vegetables/fruits. Baby bok choy is always cheaper there. I remember finding vegan algae blobs at Hmart.

In my nearest one, I found some really nice long strips of tofu that had already been marinated so I could just chuck them in a stir-fry

Do you like szechuan food? Serious Eats has some recipes for mapo tofu and dry-fried szechuan green beans I've been meaning to try that require preserved mustard stems and szechuan peppercorns.

I picked up a green I've never seen before. Cooking it made it smell a bit "different" and at first I wasn't sure if I like it. Eating it for lunch now and I love it. It's a chrysanthemum green going by various names such as shungiku ot tong ho etc. I highly recommend it.

I picked up a jar of fermented tofu in order to make the recipe for vegan fish sauce from Homemade Vegan Pantry. The recipe only calls for a small amount of the liquid, and I don't want the rest of the jar to go to waste. I haven't opened it yet to smell or taste anything, and I'm frankly a bit intimidated by it. I have never experienced fermented tofu before... what on earth do I do with it?

Side note: the supermarket was out of spicy chili crisp for about two months - it was awful!! I tried to find a replacement, but nothing else comes close. When they got them back in, I grabbed a few. I do not intend to run out again.

Fermented tofu is super delicious as a condiment. If I had some I'd make a hot pot with noodles and veggies like the one at the very end of this post that I ate in Vietnam http://veganinbrighton.blogspot.jp/2015 ... etnam.html

Fermented tofu is also great in stir-fry recipes! My stand-by is napa cabbage with mock duck or pan-fried tofu.

I was disappointed by that one black soy milk drink. It does not taste any different to any other soy milk.

Meh, I'd probably use it anyway, depending on how out of date and how much bother to go back and return. I think jarred and canned things are usually good for a very long time and the date on them is not always really valid. But that's just me. Use your best judgement.

Yeah I'm still going to use it, as long as it doesn't smell rancid.

i found two angry lady sauces at my small asian supermarket. one was just chilies and the other one was black beans with chilies. the writing was in english so i could not compare it to the photo of the sauce that was posted earlier. Anyone an idea what the one posted consists of? is it a hot sauce?
thanks!

The one I get is called "spicy chili crisp" - it does not have black beans in it. Apparently, the angry lady has quite a variety of products. I've tried a few now, but the spicy chili crisp is the best by far.
