Coconut Cream Pie & More Thanks to Dollar Store

I made a coconut cream pie with ingredients found at the 99 cent store (mostly from my most recent trip in November unless otherwise noted):

Besides the pie ingredients, I found other veg*n goodies, too:

  • Coconut flakes (made in USA or Vietnam)
  • Graham cracker crust (from previous trip here)
  • Coconut milk
  • Silk brand boxed non-dairy milk (in refrigerator section but refrigeration not required since it's a tetra pak that is shelf stable)
  • Veggie burger patties (made in India)
  • Veggie samosas (made in India)
  • Blueberries, fresh (~5 oz.)
  • Blueberries, frozen (from North America)
  • Portobello caps (2-3 per pack)
  • Lemons (4+ per bag)
  • Cremini mushrooms
  • Crushed tomatoes (32 oz. can)
  • Rice vinegar
  • Lentils
  • Dried garbanzo beans
  • Lasagna noodles
