Pocket foods are the best foods! Not only do they require little to no dishes to eat, but they are always encompassed in a flakey dough or crust that is as comforting as it is delicious. Pocket foods have been around forever and different versions can be found anywhere in the world! Until recently a vegan version of a “Hot Pocket” was something we thought no one would dream up. Today Tofurky has a frozen pocket for everyone, with savory and spicy plant-based options wrapped in flaky whole-wheat dough.
Tofurky’s Plant-Based Pockets come in three flavors, Ham & Ched’ar, Turk’y Broccoli Ched’ar, and Pepp’roni Pizza. A pocket pie for each meal of the day! I was able to find the Ham & Ched’ar and Pepp’roni Pizza pockets at my local SaveMart.
I am the biggest fan of the Ham & Ched’ar pocket. It’s similar to a pot pie and the most like a traditional Hot Pocket (it also reminds me of when Elf yells at the Santa imposter “you smell like beef and cheese!” and that is hilarious). All pockets are enveloped in whole-wheat dough and made with Follow Your Heart brand melty vegan cheese. If baked in the oven, these pockets are ready and in your hand in less than 25 minutes. I can see myself stocking some of these in my freezer for quick lunches or munchy mid-night snacking.
The Pepp’roni Pizza pocket is a tad spicy for me and I think Tofurky’s description of “zesty” is dead-on. This pizza pocket is a great calzone replacement that I bet even Ben Wyatt would approve of. I have always LOVED Tofurky’s pepperoni slices, and have used them on vegan pizzas for years! I love seeing these meal pockets from Tofurky, and hope to see even more meal-ready products from them in the future.
Thank you to the Bjerke family, (followers on IG) for requesting this product be featured! I love hearing your recommendations and am happy to slip them into the rotation of upcoming posts. Keep ’em coming!
