Candle 79 Launches Gourmet Frozen Vegan Entrees At Whole Foods

Published on June 23, 2011 by   ·   6 Comments Pin It

Gourmet, organic, and vegan… not usually words you’d expect to hear in the frozen food isle.  And yet, the geniuses (Joy Pierson, Bart Potenza, & Benay Vynerib) at Candle Cafe and Candle 79, two of the world’s most renowned organic, vegan restaurants have brilliantly put together some tasty fare for the lazy and/ or busy!

How is it the world is still feeding their kids “Hungry Man” dinners when we now have options like these! Candle Cafe™ Frozen Meals were inspired by the chefs and recipes of the Candles, and are in partnership with  The Hain Celestial Group, Inc., a leading natural and organic foods company.  These delicious vegan frozen gourmet meals are certified organic and are always all-natural, vegetarian, non-dairy and made without genetically engineered ingredients.

The Candle Cafe Frozen Meals follow the restaurant’s mission to better the individual and the planet by serving tasty vegan cuisine rooted in eco-friendly practices and compassion for animals.  Candle Cafe frozen meals share the restaurant’s compassion by sponsoring The Humane Society of the United States and Farm Sanctuary.

Candle 79 Launches Gourmet Frozen Vegan Entrees At Whole Foods

Four Candle Cafe Frozen Entrees are available:

  • Ø  Seitan Piccata with Lemon Caper Sauce  – Seitan in a traditional Italian sauce, 9 oz. single serve entrée, Made with organic brown rice and spinach
  • Ø  Ginger Miso Stir-Fry – Tofu and vegetables in a ginger miso sauce, 9 oz. single serve entrée,   Made with organic brown rice and tofu
  • Ø  Tofu Spinach Ravioli – Tofu spinach ravioli in a classic tomato sauce, 9 oz. single serve entrée, Made with organic pasta and tofu
  • Ø  Mac & Vegan Cheese – Spiral pasta in a creamy vegan cheese sauce, 9 oz. single serve entrée

Candle Cafe frozen entrees are sold in 9 oz. trays, and retail at about $5.99. That’s a hell of a lot cheaper than dining at the restaurant.  Crap-laden Lean Cuisine meals average about $4, so for less than $2 more per meal, you could be getting healthy, changing the world, and still eating decadently tasty nosh. You can find them in the frozen food section of Whole Foods Market now, nationwide. Candle Cafe Vegan Desserts and mini muffins are also available at select Whole Foods Markets across the country. We feel a revolution coming on…

    Woo hoo!!!!!!! This is AMAZING NEWS! Though we have some great vegan food out here in L.A., I have been missing my Candle 79 fix. Can’t believe that I can now grab some of their amazing grub at Whole Foods. Out the door as we speak…

    These are great but they are from Genetically Modified Sources,
    Why ruin these with GMO canola and soy? They are so good but I will no longer buy them.
    Thank you
