High-End Tonic

The 365 (store brand) tonic at Whole Foods is excellent--made with sugar rather than corn syrup. Can't wait to try these new brands, though!

the best vegetarian food "products"

I heard about Quorn from CSPI years ago, long before I'd even seen it on store shelves. I went at least 5 years thinking it was evil and refusing to purchase it, until this most recent Thanksgiving, when I bought a Quorn Roast on impulse. (Tofurkey is icky and I'm not a vegan or a masochist.)

I'm totally sold. Even my non-veggie fiance agreed that it tasted 80% like Turkey. I ate nothing but Quorn Roast sandwiches for two days straight. (I'd also just discovered Napa Valley Honey Truffle mustard at the same time, so I was in heaven.)

I never buy Morningstar farms products (because they're junk and taste mediocre.) However, when I'm in the mood for a treat once in a while, Quorn is awesome. Still weird fungus mystery meat, but awesome.

the Naked cutlets are excellent with Napa Valley Harvest Honey Truffle Mustard. It's about $5 a jar at Whole Foods, but a little goes a long way (and it's great when you're trying to sauce something without adding too many calories.)

I tried the Van's gluten free/vegan (or whatever they were) blueberry waffles and thought they were amazing. Then I accidentally bought normal wheat/non-vegan Van's waffle's and they were awful. Go figure.

Vegetarian Gravy for Thanksgiving

Nutritional yeast is a natural source of MSG, which makes it tasty and gives it a "meaty" flavor. If you don't add the nutritional yeast, it might not taste as good. (Other natural sources of MSG are mushrooms and parmesan cheese.)
