Amy’s Frozen Pizzas

Published August 4, 2010 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

Sometimes I want yummy vegan pizza, and I want it fast. Amy’s makes 3 frozen vegan pizzas, 2 of which have vegan cheese and gluten free rice crust (for those that care). They also make a roasted vegetable pizza, no fake cheese, but so flavorful and yummy.

1. Non-dairy cheeze pizza on rice crust, personal size (not sure why they don’t make a full size?!)

2. Spinach on rice crust (has non-dairy cheese), full size

3. Roasted Vegetable, full size

Now these are delicious, but still fattening.  The crust is delicate and a bit [olive] oily, but it’s delicious, and tends to hold you a lot longer than you’d think. The cheese gets nice & melty too.

You can top the individual cheese one with whatever you like to personalize it. Here I used Yves pepperonis, crushed red pepper flakes, oregano and nutritional yeast. The spinach one is great alone, or dipped in marinara sauce.

** BE CAREFUL!  make sure you buy the non-dairy ones, because they make ones with soy cheese that have milk protein (cassein). If you flip the box, the ingredient list should start out with: (vegan). The soy cheese one says: “contains milk protein” on the front, bottom, left corner.

vegan sweets

Published April 8, 2010 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

when i ordered the daiya cheese last week (from cosmos vegan shoppe), i also ordered some sweets to try:

the first one is Glenny’s brown rice marshmallow treat in vanilla. regular rice krispy treats aren’t vegan, because regular marshmallows are made with gelatin. so i thought i’d give it a try. i hadn’t had anything marshmallow-y for a while. and well,  i still haven’t! it was really dry, crumbly, and artificially vanilla tasting. (it says organic vanilla flavor, not extract, upon closer inspection.) at least it was only 100 calories.

if you want something like this, i suggest making some peanut buttery vegan krispy treats. i’ve seen vegan marshmallows for sale, but they are always very expensive and give you a very little amount, so i’ve refrained. i made the pb brown rice krispy treats from alicia silverstone’s the kind diet a few months ago, and they were really good and gooey! go google yourself a recipe, and pass these by.

the second contender was Q.bel’s double dark wafer bar. touted as a fancy kit kat bar. this was AMAZING! i’m not the biggest milk chocolate fan, but i do love dark chocolate, and this was SO GOOD. way better than a milk chocolate kit kat, in my opinion! it has 70% cacao. A++!
