Just thought some of you might be interested that Aldi's now sells tofu - firm and silken.  I used the silken this morning in some vegie burgers and it is lovely.  They both cost aroudn $1.30 for 300g.

Also for those that still eat dairy - Coles brand shredded Mozzorella is animal rennet free!

Really good stuff!  I'll double check the price but I know I was shocked and had to try it when I saw the price.  I do not normally like silken tofu but theirs was really good.

I've been put off abit by asian supermarkets.  I bought up heaps awhile back having a great time picking up heaps of different vegie items.  But when I tried them I had 3 products that were off in the one shopping.  And when I mean off they were mouldy but I didn't notice as they were marinated and it was when I bit into it that I got the worst taste ever.  One product was a frozen one which had mould on it.  I haven't been game to go back.  Perhaps it was just that supermarket.  I used to buy from china town years ago but I live too far away now.

I'll get back to you on the price this week sometime.

That's great, because Aldi likes to sell things that are guaranteed to go, right? Must mean there's a significant demand!

I bought Aldi's tofu and it's good! Aldi also sells marinated olives, sundried tomatoes in oil and marinated artichokes.
