Definitely worth a try.
I was somewhat sceptical about buying this but its actually quite good. If you are expecting the taste of a Friday night dirty kebab after 8 pints you might be a little disappointed but its still worth a punt. I had on a Romaine Lettuce leaf (aka Chinese) and chilli oil and wrapped it and it hit the spot. I will be buying it going forward as its very healthy too.
My favourite dinner by far. Only 262 calories in the whole thing, amazing !!!!
Really worth giving a go
We do eat meat althought try to take a night or two off each each week. Its not always easy to find a substitute for meat, especially when you just need something quick and easy. I gave Vivera a go and have made it a repeat purchase. My son and I really like it alhough weirdly ,my wife who is an ex vegetarian, won't even try it, yet she would happily eat a kebab from one of those Kebab shops that have a rotating 'meat on a stick'. We used to buy those and lets face it, you couldn't really tell what 'meat' it really is although I reckon its mechanically recovered as it often has some added 'bits'. Now, Vivera on the other hand is actually quite a good substitution for the meat on a stick and without the weird bits. Cook it, pop it in your warmed pitta bread with salad and your favourite sauce that you'd have at your local Kebab shop and you really can't tell the difference. Easy to make, cook, lovelier to eat, well, for some of the family anyway.
Next to salt it is the saltiest vegan dish I have tasted. Awful!
As an experiment I'm spending a month being vegetarian and in addition I'm being vegan once a week (which is hard work!). The Viv Era products have been a revelation for me. Of course they're not quite like the real thing but boy do they come close - impressively so! As I look to continue to reduce meat from my diet I'll be buying a lot more of this....
I really don't know what to say about this awful product. It tastes awful...
Love the smell when cooking and the taste was clos
Love the smell when cooking and the taste was close to a kebab but nowhere near as greasy.
A must try.
This is a brilliant substitute, very good taste, amazing texture. Stuffed into pitta or a wrap with crunchy salad it's hard to tell this isn't meat. I'm always interested in new veg products to lessen my meat intake. If the price wasn't so high I'd by more often.
Best vegan replacement I've tried
First time I've ever left a review I had to! I'm a meat eater trying to cut down meat consumption and without a doubt this is the best vegan alternative I've ever tried for anything! It boggles the mind a little. Everything you love about kebab minus all the bits you don't (the grease) served in a wrap the whole family have eaten them really impressed. Because it was super quick meal save us some pennies next time we fancy one too!!
Love these stir-fried for the full 5 mins so they'
Love these stir-fried for the full 5 mins so they're a bit crispy, don't need to add any herbs or spices the flavour is just right. They have a much firmer texture than Quorn which I prefer. I have it in a wrap or flatbread with salad and Tesco's citrus and chilli salad dressing.
