Best Supermarket Vegetarian Foods continued...


Boca Original Meatless Chik’n Nuggets. These nuggets are made with water, soy protein concentrate, soy protein isolate, textured wheat protein and yeast extract. I suggest using the oven or toaster oven to warm them up instead of the microwave.

How Does It Taste? OK. They don’t have a lot of flavor, so are best served with a dipping sauce.

Nutrition Information: 4 nuggets (3 ounces) have 180 calories, 14 g protein, 17 g carbohydrate, 7 g fat, .5 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 3 g fiber, 500 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 35%.


Michael Angelo’s Eggplant Parmesan (contains eggs and cheese). One container of this frozen entree actually contains 2 servings, so you’ll need to serve it with some whole-grain pasta or bread and perhaps some fruit to round out the meal. The first five ingredients are organic tomatoes, eggplant, mozzarella cheese, water, and breadcrumbs.

How Does It Taste? Good enough to make me want to eat the whole container.

Nutrition Information: 1 serving (3/4 cup) has 160 calories, 11 g protein, 14 g carbohydrate, 7 g fat, 3.5 g saturated fat, 25 mg cholesterol, 3 g fiber, 500 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 39%.

Best Vegetarian Foods from Whole Foods Market

Here are some vegetarian favorites you can find at your local Whole Foods specialty market. 

O’Hana House Vegetarian Indian Curry Bite Size Won Ton (mini pot-sticker appetizers). The main ingredients in the won ton filling are organic tofu, organic cabbage, baby bok choy, green peas, and carrots. Seasonings include organic curry powder and organic soy sauce.

How Does It Taste? These brown nicely if you fry them in a nonstick pan coated with canola or olive oil cooking spray. They have a soft textured filling with a mild curry flavor.

Nutrition Information: 1 serving (about 6 pieces) has 80 calories, 3 g protein, 15 g carbohydrate, 1.5 g fat, 0 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 1 g fiber, 230 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 17%. (10% Daily Value for Vitamin C)


Amy’s Indian: Vegetable Korma. This ismade with organic vegetables and rice, curried vegetables with rice, and dal.

How Does It Taste? Pretty tasty, and not too spicy. The small amount of food was surprisingly satisfying.

Nutrition Information: 1 entrée has 300 calories, 9 g protein, 41 g carbohydrate, 12 g fat, 3.5 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 6 g fiber, 680 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 36%.

Favorite Vegetarian Foods from Trader Joe’s

Trader Joe’s Meatless Meatballs. The first five ingredients are textured vegetable protein (soy protein concentrate, caramel color), water, wheat gluten, soy protein, and canola oil.

How Does It Taste? The meatballs have an appealing, tender texture and a pleasant, mild flavor. They work well with high-flavor sauces or ingredients.
