Buying frozen food is a great way to save money on groceries, but when you can find those frozen foods at the dollar store, you can save even more. All of the vegan dollar store foods in this post can be found in the freezer section at Dollar Tree.
Pictured above are just the ones that I actually bought and brought home, but there were lots more than that (most of which are pictured below).
Let's start with the stuff that is pretty much always in stock, and then we will take a look at some of the veg dollar store goodness I have never seen before.
I bought two packs of these, and I tried one last night. The first thing I noticed about them is that you can actually see the vegetables, which is a quality I like in my veggie patties. The recommended preparation method is the oven, but I was in a hurry and threw them in the microwave. They were a tad mushy, but veggie burgers often are when you cook them in the microwave. Other than that, I would say the taste and texture were on par with veggie burgers I have paid a lot more for.
I think these might be a particularly good choice for college students going back to school and looking for a vegan, dorm-room alternative to Hot Pockets!
Of course, I will bake them with no oil to make them not quite as sinful!
What are some of the best cheap, vegan foods you have found at dollar stores in your area?
