Starlite Cuisine Vegan Santa Fe Style Crispy Rolled Tacos

When I first saw this box in the frozen section of Viva La Vegan Grocery, I exclaimed, “vegan taquitos!” and immediately threw them into our basket.  There were a couple of flavors, but Santa Fe style sounded good.  Check out their other products here.

They didn’t take too long to cook in the oven and came out very crispy.  The shells were delicious and crispy, while light.  Unfortunately, the filling was totally bland.  With salsa, they were totally edible, but I don’t think I’ll be buying them again.  Bummer.

Viva La Vegan Grocery, Santa Monica

The all-vegan market, Viva La Vegan Grocery opened a new location not long ago in Santa Monica.  Eric and I found ourselves in the area and stopped by to see what interesting new vegan products we could try.  First, I want to point out that this is not really a health foods store.  While there are cooking basics such as different kinds of flour, grains, and different sauces, there aren’t a lot of those things and you could get most of them elsewhere.  Mostly, they had the largest variety of vegan processed foods that I have ever seen.  I was there to buy foods that I don’t usually see at our local grocery stores, so I was okay with that.

The store is tiny and packed with vegan goods.  I definitely recommend you stop in and try something new.
