Good texture but too salty.
Texture holds up but the salt content is so high (three times the amount of salt per 100g vs. most meat mince) it makes it hard to cook with. Even without adding any salt the final dish was a bit too salty.
Best vegan mince
This is the best vegan mince we've tried by far. The texture isn't mushy unlike other brands and the taste is pleasant. Used in a vegan chilli con carne and I would be surprised if a meat eater would be able to tell the difference (I ate meat for many years myself), particularly with the addition of vegan beef Oxo. So pleased to have found a mince substitute that we're confident in using time and time again.
Not great. The mice totally loses all structure when you cook it and it becomes almost sand like. Stick with Quorn mince would be my advice
I have never tried a vegetarian mince before and w
I have never tried a vegetarian mince before and was sceptical but for my first experience, this was such an incredible alternative. I couldn't believe how good it tasted. Loved it!!
Favourite meat free alternative for mince meat
I've been vegetarian for the last 3 years and this is the closest I've come to finding a meat free mince alternative with a more meaty texture for bolognese and cottage pie. I find some others to be bit mushy and flavourless but Vivera Mince is neither of those things. This may convert a few meat eaters to occasionally try a meat free alternative for their favourite meals.
Tasty Veggie Mince
I was a bit put off by the look of the mince, but I decided to try it and I am glad I did as it made an amazing Shepherds Pie and Lasagne and I was able to make an extra portion to freeze. I would recommend this mince.
Tasty and light
Really tasty I used this to me veggie lasagne this is the lightest plant based mince I have tried and I will never go back to using soya mince again.
This is the best of the vegan minces I have tried (and the only one that didn't go in the bin). I think it could be improved if the pieces were a little bigger and a little firmer, but overall not bad. I used it with Oxo Meat-Free Beef Flavour stock cubes and Bisto granules, and the combination of all three did taste beefy.
This is divine made a cottage pie today just added mushtooms and onion and bisto veggy gravy ... nicest thing we ever tasted will deffo buy more!
I'm not going to mince my words..it's fab!
Our go to mince when we want spag bol shepherds pie etc Not mushy great texture just great.A great vegan alternative that the whole family can enjoy
