Product review: Rising Moon Stuffed Shells! »
This new store, Ivy Garden, opened in Park Slope (Gowanus?) and it’s my new favorite place on earth. They have so much vegan food! AND it’s right off my subway stop (stop stalking me!). One thing they have that I hadn’t tried before is Rising Moon Stuffed Shells. Jeez louise, guys! These are SO GOOD! I love them. The ricotta is totally great. I don’t remember if it’s exactly like dairy ricotta but it’s hella good.
That’s kind of all I wanted to say. If you see this stuff somewhere, totally try it.
Product Review: Rising Moon Organics Vegan Gnocchi! »
These gooey, delicious pillows of pasta from Rising Moon Organics are totally vegan! HUZZAH! I’m obsessed with this stuff. It cooks in an easy five minutes and makes a filling meal. And check it out, zero grams of fat and three grams of fiber per serving—shweet!
I’ve tried Rising Moon raviolis in the past and I didn’t like them that much. I think it had more to do with freezer burn than anything else, but they just didn’t come out that great.
The gnocchi, though, it cooks perfectly. If you don’t like doughy food, you won’t like this, but if you are a gnocchi-loving vegan like me, this will hit the spot (don’t be a perv!). Plus, you get to make gnocchi jokes. Or you can sing that song, “another season, another reason, for making gnocchi.” A classic.
BONUS! Some fun facts from their FAQ section:
"Gnocchi is the Italian word for dumplings; in Italian, gnocchi is the plural of gnocco, which literally means ‘lump.’ They can be made of potato, semolina (durum wheat), flour, or [icky] ricotta cheese."
You can buy Rising Moon at a fine grocery store near you or you can order them delivered right to your door!
