Two freezer snacks

The ready-made frozen snack section of the supermarket isn’t always the friendliest place for vegans – all those pies and pizzas and fish fingers – but I’ve spotted a couple of good vegan options recently.

‘So Easy’ vegetarian dumplings by Leanne’s Kitchen really are quite easy. They take about five minutes to pan-fry from frozen, or you can boil, microwave, deep-fry or oven bake them. Jo recommends dumpling noodle soup. Just plain fried with Sriracha sauce and tamari, they were delicious.

Vegetarian Curry Puffs by Surti Indian Samosa are equally easily prepared – you just heat them in the oven. The filling includes coconut, so is a little different than most of the potato-pea-and-curry combinations more often found in samosas. Surti’s website lists another couple of flavours of vegetarian samosa that are also vegan.


Both companies are Auckland-based, and I found both of these products at supermarkets – the dumplings at New World College Hill & the curry puffs at Countdown 277.

  1. So I tried the Curry Puffs, because I could not find the dumplings at the supermarket, though I have seen them at another shop. I was feeling quite lazy and baked them. A big lad like myself I thought 6 should be adequate but after 3 with some rice and a salad on the side I was quite full. They are very nice, the other 3 will go in the lunch box, thanks for reviewing these.
