Few grocery stores have improved their vegan game like Kroger – and we’re not just talking about fruits and veg here. In 2019, Kroger began expanding its Simple Truth herbal line, promising to launch more than 75 vegan products by the end of 2020. Granted, Simple Truth herbal products aren’t the only vegan options. that you will find at the store, as Kroger also carries favorite vegan brands such as JUST uf, Miyoko’s dairy, and Tofurky. But in case you haven’t seen a lot of these herbal offerings, take a look at what you can find at your local Kroger. The blow at home? With big chains like Kroger jumping into the vegan game, being vegan – or even just looking for ways to eat fewer animals – is now easier than ever.
1. Simple Truth Deli Slices
Whether you prefer turkey or ham on your sandwich, you’ll find both at your local Kroger. As part of its Simple Truth line, the chain currently offers plant-based salt and pepper turkey-style slices and plant-based Black Forest ham-style slices.
2. Simple Truth Meatless Breakfast Patties
If there’s a reason to get up and shine in the morning, this is it. Prepare these patties for your tofu scrambles or breakfast sandwiches.

Whether you once loved chicken or beef or still have friends and family, you don’t have to decide. The new Emerge patties are available as vegan chicken patties, ground chicken meat or beef patties.
4. Simple Truth Plant Based Dairy Cheddar Style Slices
Because the dairy industry is perhaps one of the cruelest areas of animal agriculture, we’re always happy to see another non-dairy cheese on the market. And like many of Kroger’s vegan products, this one is more affordable than the branded vegan options.
5. Simple Truth Organic Plant-Based Cream Cheese Alternative
This is an important score, because finding vegan cream cheese at a large grocery chain has been nearly impossible until now. Make sure you stock up on bagels as well.

Will you go for Buffalo, Jalapeño Coriander, Spicy Queso or Tzatziki? So many options make it difficult to decide.

Don’t feel like making your own sauce from scratch? Kroger has you covered with this high protein sauce, which features red beans and mushrooms (although if you’ve got mushroom enemies at your table, they’ll never know).
10. Simple Truth Plant-Based Meatless Chorizo Sausage
Stop paying full price for vegan chorizo anymore! This version of Kroger is affordable and makes a great addition whenever you need to whip up a dish, like tacos and burritos, that is a bit more meaty and spicy.
11. Simple Herbal Herbal Dressing
Here’s a surprising member of Kroger’s new herbal line: dressing. This creamy ranch doesn’t have to be limited to salads, it can also be drizzled with pizza, potatoes and interior wraps.
12. Simple Truth Meatless Potato Chips
Made from soy, these crumbles are great for anything that calls for grounds, think tacos, pasta, and casseroles, for starters.

This tofu is not only cheaper than other brands, it’s also organic and a great food to keep in your fridge. If you don’t like extra firm, there are other textures in this range as well.
