Disclaimer, this recipe post was developed in collaboration with Spice It Up Foods. You can find their veggie pakoras at select Costcos in Canada. All opinions are my own, thank you for supporting the brands who support me!

When I worked at Dominos, my coworkers had invited me to their homes for dinner and that’s when I learned what pakoras were and decided that I freaking love pakoras. Ever since my lovely coworkers shared their food with me, I’m always on the look out for a way to get my hands on them. When Spice It Up Foods reached out to me to let me know that they were carrying veggie pakoras at a Costco near me, you bet that they had my attention!  Bonus: they’re vegan, made from all natural ingredients, and takes 15 minutes in the oven to cook. Needless to say, I made H drive me to Costco on his day off so I could get my hands on them.

When I got my hands on the veggie pakoras, I insisted on “testing” them out right away. I popped them in the toaster oven and practically burned my mouth trying to eat them ASAP. I know, I have the patience of a puppy. BUT if you could smell what I smelled, you’d do the same! The second I opened the bag, I could smell the spices and just could not wait to eat them. Needless to say, I totally recommend these veggie pakoras to not just be a part of your meal but as a regular snack. I’m more than happy to pop a couple in the oven when hungry and just eat them as it is!

While I eat the veggie pakoras on their own, I also added them to some bowls to keep things interesting for lunch. Down below you’ll find three, yes three, different bowls that you can make featuring Spice It Up’s veggie pakoras!
