Thread: very O/T: plant based food

    very O/T: plant based food

    Anyone got any favourite vegan substitutes? I'm not vegan, but my diet is Keto and I try quite a few vegan things just to mix it up as they often have the right sort of nutritional profile.

    I had Beyond Meat Plant Based Burgers today: 5 for 2 at sainsburys. They were awesome! To be honest they've got a bit too much filth in them for my liking - a load of crappy rapeseed oil, as well as maltodextrin, so reluctantly I'll not get them again but they really are very very good to eat.

    Anyone got any other favourite meat replacements?

    I find minced steak is a very good substitute for quorn. I use it all the time. no additives or anything.

    Quorn was invented by ici and was originally made for animal feed.
    They then thought fack it cut out the middle man.

    Thanks - will give it a go. I've made seitan/wheat meat before which was fun and a decent substitute, but quite a lot of faff.

    These are banging if you crisp them up nicely, they make fajitas, curries etc spot on

    On it. They sell it at Tescos which helps.

    Its vegetarian rather than vegan tho (its got egg in it) but that doesn't bother me.

    keep a eye on the reduced Veggie stuff ( my local big tesco's has a section for it ) the veggiebutcher isnt that well know so is often in the section reduced by a massive amount

    Thanks. The burgers I had were reduced to about 60pfor the same reason- nobody seems to want this vegan stuff so it normally ends up I in the yellow sticker bin!

    I e been meaning to try one evening meal a week vegan for a while, some tidy options in this thread thanks.

    Too lazy to go at it full time as I know I'll not get enough variety (through being lazy)

    I quite fancy the look of those beetroot burgers they sell in Lidl. Anyone tried one?

    you did well to get Beyond burgers for that price

    I like the Impossible meat, but its only USA based at the mo ( they were looking at selling it here before Covid, it never happened though )

    I picked up a can of Vegan Tuna yesterday, which is going to be interesting

    Just had this https://www.deliciousmagazine.co.uk/...-with-noodles/ with Linda McCartney meatballs. Deeeeeelicious (and vegan I think, although I'm not vegan myself)

    Best veggie burger I've had is Linda McCartney mozzarella burger. I tried the beyond and wasn't that impressed

    Best sausage I'd say Richmond ones

    Quorn peppered streaks used to be nice as well, not sure if they do them now.

    Frankie and bennys used to do a superb vegan burger they have changed it now to some beetroot one, was alright
