I feel weird admitting this but I miss "$h!t on toast" you know that chipped beef in cream sauce. Weird huh? I haven't seen anything like that at any stores. What does everyone else miss or even something they used to make and it got discontinued?

egg mayo, in baguette.(yes, I know about black salt, and tofu)

brie
that rubbery smoked cheese that is in a sausage shape.
cottage cheese


eta: I wasn't sure if this was about foods that vegans would want.

OMG yes and that is totally possible now with Daiya!!! If they can make delicious havarti I have faith they could figure out string cheese.

Another thing I'd love is vegan ravioli in a can, like Chef Boyardee. It seems like it would be so easy to do and I know we already have delicious pasta, faux beef and tomato sauce in the world I have no idea why that isn't already a thing.

Heck yes!!! I so want cheapo vegan/vegetarian Chef Boyardee Beef Ravioli.

 

Actually you know what TVP is in this crap, why don't they step up their game and make a vegetarian line to appeal to more consumers????

I just wrote Chef Boyardee requesting a vegan beef ravioli......

Oh and a good mock thin sliced "roast beef" like Arby's...now that would be awesome.

Mmm ravioli would be good. I wish they would make a vegan gelatin. Like flavored pectin or something. Jello is so versatile.they have so many flavors you can use it to flavor all kinds of things ie cakes etc...

There used to be (might still be) vegetable ravioli in the UK so I'd be surprised if there isn't in the States unless tinned ravioli isn't popular there.  Liked the Branston one for a while but not had for ages.

Here is something, and I wonder if you could experiment since Kool Aid is vegan (Peta says it is at least) and make it into other flavors?

Hooters Hot Wings.  I've actually never been there, but I used to make it with a copy copy recipe.   
KFC Fried Chicken.  Yum. 
BBQ Ribs -  The Morningstar version is good, but I think it has a week's worth of sodium in it.  

There are the only things I still "crave" (and the word "crave" is much too strong a word).   My friend with 25 years still lusts over bacon.  lol

Have you tried Daiya? It's a pretty tasty way to have all those things, especially the new wedges. lick.gif

Look for this butternut squash ravioli - it's vegan and good. I found it at Trader Joe's.

 

 

 

Sorry the image is so fuzzy. Here is a company link. http://www.risingmoon.com/productlist.aspx?catid=La+Famiglia+Organic+Ravioli

 

Also they do make vegan jello. I've been buying it for years. I used to get Hain Superfruits - like jello in a box you make, but haven't seen it in a while.  Recently I found these http://www.cool-cups.com/Cool_Cups.html at Trader Joes. They're vegan and my son loves them. 

 

 

 

 

I wish they made decent vegan cheddar cheese - and YES I've tried Daiya and don't like it. I also wish they sold vegan alfredo in stores. I've seen it online, but NEVER at a store.

Oh yeah and cream of tomato soup. I just like plain ol' can o' tomato soup with milk added to it, but for some reason I HATE how soy milk tastes in this. It's the only thing I ever really needed to use real milk in before I went vegan. Now I can't have it at all :(

OMG Jennifer, lovely lovely lovely cream of tomato soup!  Morrisons' organic range in UK did a vegan one, fairly nice but a slight aftertaste.  

 

Cream of tomato soup with cheese sandwiches dipped in!  One of THE great meals.  Even after all this time I can almost taste it now.

I know right. Even as much as I dislike vegan cheese, I can handle a grilled vegan cheese sandwich kind of. The last time I made vegan tomato soup however, I had to throw it all away after one bite :( Maybe I should try a different alternative milk.

Maybe you made your soup too thick if you were *biting* it! wink3.gif

 

 

Trial and error eh - or search online for a better recipe.

 

 

I'm still put off by my early vegan cheese experiences that seemed to be made out of potatoes!!!!!!! shocked.gif

Redwood's Cheezly can be quite good, but I've started buying the Tesco vegan cheeses.

http://www.tesco.com/groceries/Product/Details/?id=271895049

http://www.tesco.com/groceries/Product/Details/?id=271880913



It is quite nice in a cheese sandwich, but I always preferred mild cheese in sandwiches.

Not sure if the Tesco one melts, but some of Redwood's ones sort of melt, and make ok cheese on toast. They do some pizzas to which are ok too.



but maybe you've tried that lot......not sure the Tesco cheese is available everywhere.

Thanks Blobbenstein,

 

I'll have a look next time I'm in Tesco.  smiley.gif  When I was a vegetarian I loved mature Irish Cheddar but I sense stronger vegan cheeses might taste more obviously fake???

 

I can't remember what I tried in the past but it was kinda circular and I didn't really know how to store it after I opened the packaging!  Should've just put it in a plastic container, I suppose, but I was dumber then!

 Corned beef hash.  Gross, I know, but it was a comfort food.  Also, eggrolls.

Look for  Ling Ling spring rolls in the frozen sectio. They're vegan and very good.
