Not good weird flavour
I made homebrew beer once this reminded me of those student day errors. Used it in a Sheppards pie with lots of onion, garlic tomatoe puree gravey vegan beef stock and veg. But despite all efforts with flavourings, herbs, etc and tasting as I went adding more and more, It simply didn't adopt those flavours and tasted like a weird yeasty cardboard. Probably the worst soya mince I have used and I have used lots over the years including those health food store only dehydrated types in the 90s.
Thought I’d give this a go instead of my usual Quorn mince. It’s absolutely disgusting. It looks like the contents of a cheap pet food tin. The texture is slimy plus the taste is awful, and this was after adding seasoning, onion and gravy. I threw the lot of it into the bin. Don’t waste your money on this product and just buy one of the better brands.
One of the best meat free mince on the market
I was experimenting with different own brand meat free products and found this one of the best. I am able to make a delicious vegan cottage pie that satisfies both meat and plant based diet individuals. Most people will try to tell you that it's bland. Let me reassure you that if you brown mince off as normal with fried onion, 1 pint of vegetable stock and a generous tablespoon or more (depending on taste) of Marmite it will give it that Beefy meaty taste. We often do sliced potatoes instead of mash and leave it in the oven that bit longer so that it's nice and crisp.
Good value and versatile
I am allergic to Quorn, so can only eat soya mince. I think this is the best value meat replacement mince, and I often use it for cottage pies, chillis etc. Of course, if you expect it to be just like meat (like the customer below) you will be disappointed, but this product isn’t aimed at carnivores!
makes my bolognese taste like heaven!
very good and tasty for my bolognese!
Versatile and healthy
If you used Quorn mince before, this is cooked differently. With Tesco meat free mince follow instruction of frying in a little oil first, with onion if using. Then start adding your spices and or herbs depending what its for. Then add the sauces or chopped tomatoes or stock, veg if using and simmer. There you'll have a tasty basis for spag bol, chilli, curry, cottage/shepherds, any savoury dish. Good luck.
So good being a Vegan when you can buy Vegan food!
So pleased to see that it is VEGAN! Looking forward to using it for Chilli con carne Spaghetti Bolognese and Lasagne, Cottage Pie, Lancashire Hot Pot and anything else we can think of! So happy that it is VEGAN!!! Two very smiley faces!
Give it a try. Delicious 😋
Really tasty alternative to quern mince. Good value and yummy.
A convincing alternative. 10/10
We love this mince and always use it in things like lasagne or chilli. Whenever we have given it to guests they have been quite hard to convince that it’s not real meat! We really like it & probably get through a bag a week.
Very sweet and unpleasant taste, made it in a chil
Very sweet and unpleasant taste, made it in a chilli and it was impossible to get any taste into the mince, would not recommend.
