🍌 🌽 The New Vegan Thread 2018 🍆 🌻

Been eating meat substitutes for a loong time. I only gave up meat at start of the year and have (conveniently) discovered some of the best meat alternatives this year. This is probably boring but I have to bore someone with this.

Vivera steak - beautiful, had it with a home made chimmichura(?) sauce. Not like steak really, more like a new kind of meat. I think it could fool someone.

Vivera Pulled pork - had it with loads of sauce, so can’t vouch for realism, but certainly worked better than pulled jackfruit.

Mccartney shredded duck - made duck pancakes. Really really good. Obvious lacks the different consistencies of duck, but tasty af with hoisin sauce and a splash of maple syrup

Sainsbury Cumberland shroomdogs - first realistic veg sausage I’ve ever had - hint of apple - even the skin breaks convincingly - incredible.

I made the cashew cheese sauce yesterday for Isa’s Philly cheesesteak casserole: absolutely delicious.

I’ll be making it again!


#263

big fan of this.


#264

Cashew cheese >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> any other kind of vegan cheese


#265

I’m hard into these.

Oi @thewarn and @badvibes where are these coming from? And are they fresh? Frozen?


#268

Previously frozen, now available in ‘kit’ form in the chilled section of 'trose and 'bos.

Annoying that they’ve changed it, as I used to like making the pancakes/you don’t get as much fake duck as you used to.


#269

Ah, they don’t have it my sazzas. I scour the vege section every week. Will check out Wazza and Pazzas.

Many thanks.

I made a mac and cheese last night, v pleased with it.


I used this recipe, but with only 350g of macaroni, lots and lots more water in the sauce, oven roasted butternut squash chunks and jalapeños instead of mushrooms, and put half a teaspoon of nutmeg in the sauce instead of garlic powder.


#271

Some places still do the frozen I think, sure I’ve still seen it…but yeah much prefer it, as could make my own sauce.


#272

Not in my Waitrose!


#273

Might have been the massive Tezzers, could have just been old stock too. :man_shrugging:


#274

I go in a massive Tezzas too. This is a fucking conspiracy.

Almost as bad as when Sainsbury’s stopped stocking the pepperoni.


#275

That looks both dank and peng


#276

I’m staying vegan after giving it a go throughout September and enjoying it so much. I think this is one of the nicest chocolate bars I’ve ever tried, and it’s vegan too…
