One of the drawbacks to Aldi is that the produce selection isn’t always the most varied. I buy a lot of the basics there (potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, scallions, cucumbers etc) but I was still shopping at “regular” supermarkets for additional produce.
Over the last couple of months, it is like they are reading my mind! Every week (regardless of sales or specials) they have had fresh ginger root ($1.29/3 oz)
Fresh herbs!! Not just cilantro but packets of rosemary, mint, basil and Italian flat-leaf parsley for only $1.59. My garnish and herb game has really stepped up. At the supermarket, packets this size would run me $2-4 depending on the herb. I’ve been able to use each packet for 2-4 meals too! Total score.
One last bit of excitement is veggie noodles. They have zoodles (zucchini noodles), sweet potato noodles and butternut squash noodles each week. It is a little pricey at $4.79 (weights vary) but cheaper than the supermarket where they go for $5-6 and way easier than spiralizing them yourself. I have the spiralizer Aldi featured over the summer and use that but let me tell you, I’m tempted by those butternut squash noodles–no peeling, seeds or cutting? Win.
