Best New Vegan Products October 2020

Veg out with us! Emerging and existing brands from across the country are launching innovative products every day, so we searched far and wide for the best of the best—everything from feta cheese and protein bars, to queso, almond pate, and more. Check out our list below of the hottest new plant-based products for the month of October.

Follow Your Heart

Product: Dairy-Free Feta Crumbles

Finally! A vegan feta that conveniently crumbles over a loaded Greek salad. This dairy-free and soy-free option is made to satisfy any cheese lover, as it adds the perfect tangy and sharp taste to a bed of greens loaded with fresh tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, and homemade EVOO dressing. Bring feta to the table this fall season—family and friends won’t even know it’s vegan! Visit the store locator on their website to find it at a retailer near you.

Good Foods

Product: 4-pack Queso and Buffalo Style Dip

Good Foods dips in Queso and Buffalo flavors are now available in four-pack, single-serve plant-based tubs. The creamy dips are ideal for on-the-go and portion control. We like to throw them into our lunch bag to step up our snacking game. These convenient 70-calorie packs do not contain any artificial ingredients, preservatives, sugars, gluten, or dairy. The cheesy Queso is our go-to condiment with veggies and chips, but tastes incredible as an addition to your favorite pasta or Mexican dish as well. Both the Queso and Buffalo are available for purchase at Publix and on the Good Foods website.

Lark Ellen Farm

Product: Almond Pâté

Lark Ellen Farm—a woman-owned company based in Southern California—is known for using sprouted nuts and seeds in their organic grain-free granolas. The new Almond Pâté is a unique and versatile plant-based pâté that provides a tangy and savory flavor. Seasoned with Mediterranean flavors like oregano, lemon, and olives, the three decadent flavors (Original, Lemon Rosemary, and Jalapeño) can be enjoyed as a dip, condiment, or as part of your charcuterie board.

Lotus Foods

Product: Garlicky Veggie Rice Ramen Noodle Soup Cup with Freeze-Dried Chunky Veggies

Lotus Foods Garlicky Veggie Rice Ramen Noodle Soup Cup uses a savory garlic broth loaded with spinach, carrots, and mushrooms. This flavor, just one of the many plant-based options from their line of “ready-to-eat in just three minutes” ramen cups, is both certified vegan and gluten-free. The directions are simple—just add boiling water! Alternatively, microwave to prepare a quick meal at home or while on the road (it’s travel-friendly). The ramen cup reminds us of an ever so popular college life staple, but much healthier.

Keep Healthy

Product: Fruit and Nut + Protein Bar Variety Pack

Keep Healthy was founded to deliver convenient, healthy, and delicious snacks that are 100% plant-based, gluten-free, vegan, and free of high-fructose corn syrup. The variety-pack contains a little something for everyone—organic low glycemic protein bars (12-15 grams of pea protein each), fruit and nut snack bars, and chocolate-covered fruit and nut bars. We are loving the Apple Walnut Date fruit bar and Sea Salt Brownie protein bar flavors. Did we mention they contain no agave, stevia, sugar alcohols, or artificial sweeteners?

FitFormula Wellness

Product: Pro Vegan Creamy Chocolate Protein Blend

No more bloat from whey protein! Vegan and delicious, FitFormula Pro Vegan formula stands out from the rest because it combines the high bioavailability of pea protein powder, hemp, and flax with the added goodness of Bacillus coagulans (probiotic). For a tasty vegan smoothie, mix one scoop of protein powder with water or your milk of choice, and throw in some fruit for a little sweetness. We love the creamy chocolate flavor. Watch for the launch of their new vanilla option soon!

Tofu Tikkā Recipe

Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
