Unfortunately not for us , great price but the texture is too spongey. I'll stick with vivera mince thanks but no thanks.Of course though it is personal taste you may like it so give it a try.
Better than beef mince at a way better price!
Probably the best vegan product I've managed to find yet! With mince being mixed in with so many varieties of sauces, spices, and other ingredients I don't think you'll ever notice the difference from the real thing. And the best part is the far better price. I recommend this to people regardless of whether they're vegan or not. If you can't tell the difference, then does it matter? I've used this is in burritos where I can nearly all my ingredients frozen, aside from my sauce (which is easy to keep in fridge) and it's super easy to weigh it all out when cooking. I've also used it in mince and tatties, alongside onion gravy, and it's been perfect there too. Both meals I'm able to prep for in advance or make enough food for many meals. Great for students.
Reduce meat consumption by going half and half.
I mix this with half beef for things like bolognese, tacos, chilli, etc. It reduces the amount of meat for the meat lovers in the family, who usually don't even notice the replacement. And mixing it adds enough flavor to it.
Great Value- Could Be Firmer- Still buy it Though!
Firstly, excellent value- I'm sick of meat alternatives being priced the same as meat. There are mixed reviews on this product and I think some of it comes down to personal preference. I've used Quorn mince a lot and in my opinion I find that bland and a little chewy. This Tesco soy mince puffs up a little more. It does absorb flavour but becomes slightly too soft for me. I would prefer a little more bite if I'm being picky. That said, I prefer it to Quorn and have continued buying it.
Versatile and tasty
Easy to cook and tasty. I made a chilli and my discerning husband didn't notice it was vegetarian mince. I've since made a shepherds pie with it.
Disgusting - tastes like burnt wood
Had to buy when our local store was out of a more well known brand (you know the one). Even though it was for use in my normal Chilli and I add loads of spices the flavour of this was overpowering - not in a good way
this isn't gluten free its got wheat in
Need gluten free for my daughter only quorn will do
Horrible texture and no matter how long you cook it the flavours aren’t absorbed so it’s just tasteless. Possibly one of the worst meals I’ve ever made :-(
Very Poor Food Product.Must do better Tesco.
I am usually not one for leaving feedback/reviews. But for this product I make an exception. As a vegetarian for 10 years,this is the the worse vegetarian mince I have ever tasted. The texture is like rubber,and they leave an aroma like burning rubber which lingered until the next day. These were so bad I threw the remainder in the bin. Dear Tesco,forgive me,but I feel you must do better. Please can you improve this product,so to give us a suitable alternative to other brands vegetarian mince.Thank You..
This is a great veggie mince
We have been vegetarian for over 30 years and this veggie mince is versatile and is the best value and best tasting mince we have found on the market. It's a go to food in our household and as with any product of this type you need to add flavours whilst cooking. It's great in a tomato based sauce using tinned tomatoes and try adding some vegetarian gravy granules with other Tesco vegetarian products too, like the Meat Free Chicken Style pieces for extra interest, along with beans, mushrooms, carrots ect. I recommend this product.
