We are not Vegan or Vegetarian, bu have been reducing our red meat intake. This is far better than the mince you have to rehydrate. Very good substitute :-)
Not for me
I bought this in an effort to reduce the amount of red meat we eat due to high cholesterol. I've just made my standard bolognaise sauce with it and I find the taste ok but the texture disgusting. My husband will eat it but my portion is headed for the food waste.
It doesn't look like mince - it looks like soggy bran flakes! It's okay if you don't look at what you are cooking/eating
Good alternative to beef mince.
I'm not vegetarian but am trying to replace the red meat we eat with a vegetarian option. I used this as a base for bolognese sauce but it needed a lot of liquid added to stop it catching on the pan. It smelt of artificial beef flavouring initially but with the addition of plenty vegetables this was eventually disguised to some extent. Quite convincing alternative to beef, but an odd rubbery texture. I think I might buy it again as I'm sure I would get used to it.
Best Vegan Mince We've Tried
Best vegan mince I've had so far. Anyone wanting to eat as a vegan is not going to find 100% like for like substitute for meat, after all, we have become vegan because we don't want to harm or eat animals! This mince does the job if you want to make, spaghetti, cottage pie, etc use a good amount of onion, herbs, and seasoning. I also add finely chopped up carrots and mushrooms and everyone enjoys it. Enjoy.
Best I’ve found!
I’ve tried so many mince alternatives. This is the best one I’ve found. Great in spag bols, tacos shepherds pies etc. Not mentioning names but I tried one from jorrisons (sure you know what I mean) and the texture was like eating rice crispys. Really weird. Looked like it too
I would recommend avoiding this one
I hate to leave bad reviews on vegetarian and vegan products because at least the retailer is attempting inclusivity, but this mince is horrible. I have tried it 3 times and each time its taste is bitter and acrid, and its texture like soggy cardboard. I have tried a lot of meat free minces and appreciate that each taste very different from another, but this is the only one I can firmly state I do not like. Tesco's own range of other meat free products are great though!
So far the best mince substitute I have used. I add Vegemite to enhance the flavour along with vegetable stock, tinned tomatoes, tomato puree and vegetables etc.
This is my favorite veg mince ever!
A good vegan product. Pity it's not available.
Vegan products are still difficult to find at a reasonable price. This was good quality and Tesco's own brand, so much cheaper than the nearest brand name alternative. It's a pity it's no longer available.
