🍌 🌽 The New Vegan Thread 2018 🍆 🌻


#501

I’ve had quorn mince before, quite like quorn (though most isn’t vegan) but the mince made me feel a bit sick owing to texture and wetness. Didn’t like it at all. Sorry i’ve nothing useful to add!


#502

You rehydrate it in stock or broth first a bit like how you would couscous and then use it the same way you would regular veggie mince. It’s great and cheap!


#503

Not actually much of a mince fan myself for similar reasons tbh, but R likes it so if this stuff is any good it could be useful for him. They had larger soy chunks too which I was more interested in, they could maybe be quite versatile and good to have around in the cupboard.


#504

I might give some a try then, it was like £2 for a massive bag of the stuff that would maybe even stretch to half a dozen meals.

How long do you rehydrate it for, do you just keep checking until it is soft?


#505

That’s why i bought it too. She wasn’t interested but shes in and off with food so hoping i can give her the rest of the bag eventually


#506

I think that is typical of toddlers, R can be the same with a lot of things where it is a total lottery as to whether I make a meal he will want to eat at any given time :persevere:


#507

Takes about five minutes, chuck it in a bowl with a plate on the top to keep the steam in and then fluff it up.

There’s some recipes here -

Thanks, this is very useful :slight_smile:

The only vege (in this case vegan) think my wife whinges about is mince but she likes this and I do to.

Oh you fucking link bastard!

The chunks are decent if you dont mind a bit of soybean flavour. Good for curries or stew, they work like sausage pieces or meatballs


#511

Haven’t had those chunks for ages. Fancy getting some in, now. The version I’ve had in the past has been quite chewy, which I like, but I guess it could go either way with a toddler as to whether they can be bothered.


#512

Yeah this is by far the best one imo

Really good for spaghetti Bolognese


#513

The wasabi tofu curry is decent


#514

Oh slither off, Nestlé.


#515

mmmmm


#516

Would love it if someone pulled up research that at some point they had some minor animal derived ingredient in the nutrients it is fortified with or similar.


#517

think they use slave ants to make the holes


#518

So they aren’t knit together by grouos of old women :open_mouth:


#519

slave nans, with knitting needles made of ants.

I seem to remember not being able to eat my wife’s frosted shreddies due to something or other.
