here's another great vegan yogurt that is gluten and soy free! amande is a product by cascadian farms, which makes buttloads of organic goodies. i was able to get this at the local food bank during my weekly shopping trip. the texture was weird, but the flavor was good and substantially sweeter than other vegan yogurts out on the market. i actually saw intact blueberries, which was also a plus. since this was free, i'm unaware of the retail price and probably wouldn't purchase it unless there was a sale or a coupon available. the website doesn't really say what the product retails for, but does direct you where you can purchase the product locally. i also obtained a larger size of the plain flavor, and i'll report my findings later. i'm planning on using it in some sauces and dressings in the near future.
review: a turntable and a microphone. i'm kind of stingy when awarding big thumbs up for a product, so this is a fair grade and most certainly is not a dismissal. this was tasty, but i don't consume yogurt on a regular basis to be moved enough to give it more than that rating. amande is sweet, does the job for probiotics, is gluten and soy free.
now about this giveaway of american vegan kitchen. i have sung high holy praises for this book many times, too many to count. i scored it about this time last year and have made many dishes from it. this is the cookbook you grab when you want to make classic american food for omnis who are under the impression that vegan food sucks. close your eyes and get centered: fork n' knife reubens, fried avocado wedges, garlicky sweet ribz, chicago style pizza, cinnacrunch muffins, tofu rancheros, and a coffee cake so simple and delicious, it kicks the ass of any other coffee cake in existence. seriously.
