^I don't like Quarn sausages either.

Have you tried Sainsbury's Vegetarian Mini Sausage Rolls? They are pretty nice.

Ooooo out loud.

OOL.

They do look good. Thanks. I like a Linda sausage roll. They're vegan, if I recall.

Wicked at Tesco, do really realistic sausage rolls. There food is so good in general, and vegan.

I wasn't impressed with the LM sausage rolls, too much pastry not enough filling.

I got frozen mini sausage rolls at Christmas, can't remember if they were tesco or Sainsburys, but they went down well with the omnivores, who couldn't believe how close to meaty ones they tasted.

Not so keen on the wicked rolls, but their curried cauliflower pasty is soooooo good. I have to buy one every time I go to Tesco.

^ That's a good point the sausage to pastry ratio is a bit off, but I love pastry haha.

Linda used to do sausage plaits and there were top notch - think they've been discontinued. I think they also did a cranberry sauce and sausage plait - but I might have just slapped some cranberry sauce on it... can't remember now!

Made Seitan, steamed it in my InstantPot. Tastes like beef with a bready undertone (likeva beef sandwich), nom nom. Looking forward to stir frying with it.

Looks like rice milk and coconut milk are way easier than soya milk. You just put 1 part coconut flakes or cooked rice to 4 parts water and blend. Oat milk is straight forward too.

I'll try all four and see what I like, seems crazy to pay 1 each now.

Linda McCartney duck turned out really well, I have a bottle of hoison sauce, cooked it up, put that with it, stuck it in a wrap and it was like eating duck! God I miss the taste of duck. But glad I don't eat it anymore, I have a duck pond near me (think that was the local football clubs way of reducing guilt when they created about 6 blooming pitches) and they're so adorable, some will eat out of your hand. I want to pick them up and pet them so bad! But yeah like me if you miss the taste, McCartney duck, fried then put with hoison sauce. yummy!

^ Yes, it tasted so much nicer than a milk, milk latte! I was very surprised - it was my first time trying oat milk.

These are on offer at the moment half price at 1. They are Vegan, so stock up if you like them. The Red Onion And Rosemary Sausages and 1/4 pounders are also 1.

I've seen the offer in Morrisons and Tesco.

Out of curiosity I recently bought Gardein meatless meatballs.

I usually prefer simple and natural ingredients, however I find these are acceptable.

Three "meatballs" = a serving which is plenty to satisfy me, and they are very tasty.

I looked them up when you posted. They are bloomin' expensive, I'll give them a whirl when they are on offer.

So my Dad bought me these for a laugh:




Gonna have to try it, I suppose... :/ :/ haha.

I've never even tried proper beef jerky for comparison. Not trying proper beef jerky is not even featured on my list of top 12343 regrets.

I've never tried beef jerky either

I did try Quorn hot dogs the other day, and they were very nice

I find it a tad irritating at my workplace, non of the chefs are vegetarian and lots of times the veggie options include processed stuff like quorn mince pie, basically veggie food imitating meat food when it doesn't have to.

I love the taste and texture of this simple meal, it's good with other stuff though as it isn't too filling.

Further to my post above, I've bought another packet of Gardein meatless meatballs.
Very tasty and satisfying and fairly quick to prepare - done in the time it takes to prepare and cook the veges - so I felt it was worth getting more
