MidWeek Munchies: Dollar Tree Edition

It's MidWeek Munchies Time!  Everyone is invited to link up below thru Tuesday, December 1st, to any vegan post that has to do with grocery store hauls, garden or farmers market finds, munchies that you created in your kitchen, online purchases, or products that you have come across otherwise that happen to also be vegan!

Today I would like to share with you my haul from my local Dollar Tree!  Because I went with my hubby who isn't vegan/vegetarian I will say that together we spent $41 and bought over 41 items with that $41!!!!  Here's a look at some of MY stuff...


Frozen items!  Including frozen spinach!  YAY!  I also found Tater Rounds and Pepper Stir Fry (as you can see the blend also includes onions)!

I looked at these items over and over again and couldn't find any ingredient that wasn't on the safe list of vegan finds!  I think I scored pretty good this past weekend!

There were additional canned items and frozen items that I didn't include in these photos but they were pretty plane-jane items like canned beans, for example...and frozen and canned corn, too!


Eventho these are labeled 100% vegetarian...they seem to also be vegan!  I'm always excited to find 'breaded' items that are made WITHOUT egg!  So I had to scoop them up!

I also saw these veggie burgers that I never tried before this last trip to the store!  I have tried one already and the flavor is tasty but I have to work on the texture.  I did them with grapeseed oil in a frying pan and they were still a little mushy...I will certainly work on that SOON.  The important thing is that the taste was good, eh!?


Next up and from the same company are Vegetable Empanadas and Vegetable Samosas.  The Empanadas are Black Bean based and take well to my small toaster oven.  The Samosa's are yummers and I have pan fried them.  They have whole seed spices within that pack that lovely punch, too!

I enjoy coming up with different vegan sauces to pair with these and I am sure to do more in the near future.  I ended up getting TWO of each of these as well as the Beans and Burgers you see above, too!

And FINALLY...Jennifer Garden Vegetable Spring Rolls!  Again, no egg!  YAY!  I had these as a part of my hubby's family's Thanksgiving Dinner this past weekend and made a dipping sauce for them which consisted of soy sauce, peanut butter, maple syrup, lemon juice, garlic powder, etc.  It turned out pretty good!  I LOVE these because they are so small and cute!  I also pan fried them.  I think they would be mushy if microwaved.

YOUR TURN!!!!

  7. Great finds! Mmm, samosas and empanadas!

    I've finally participated in Midweek Munchies - I realised a while ago that I mostly just buy 'staple' ingredients rather than exciting, newsworthy items. I was a bit more exciting with my shopping this week!
