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.
We love this, it’s absolutely lovely delight to have for dinner. We have it with gf vegan pittas accompanied by frying onion and pepper & stuff the pittas with jalapeños & Sabra hummus. As reviews said it does have a meat like texture but that’s fine for us not sure why people have complained about it being spongey or flavourless. Being plant based and gluten free and healthier for you, what more could you want. It’s fantastic cheat to make a favourite takeaway. Give it a try and try experimenting to make different meals with it.
Fantastic! Best vegan meat I've tried. I'm not vegan but trying to eat less meat more plants and this is better than meat kebab. Pity the whole range isn't wheat free like this one or I'd buy most of it.
Wouldn’t feed this to my dog, cooking was no problem. Tasted it just before I served it and found it was very bland in flavour and the texture was spongey?? At first I thought I must’ve over cooked it or undercooked but reading the reviews I’m not the only one. I decided to add some spices and lettuce etc. Just to see if it works. Nope! The lettuce has more flavour than the product, they need to rethink their flavouring!
Expensive and not enjoyable at all.
Although I read the description before ordering, I do not think this gave a true representation of the product. The 'slices' were in fact tiny slivers of soya protein which, when stir fried, stuck to the pan (even with a fair amount of oil in it). It neither looked nor tasted appealing. I think also that the description should include the words 'meat-like' as this is what it was. I am a veggie who does not wish to replace meat-style items in my diet as I do not like the texture of meat so this was totally unpalatable to me. Wasting food is not something I do often but the remains of the product were put in the recycling bin as I had no wish to eat it. My final point is that this is an expensive item for what it is and I most certainly will not be purchasing it or any other Vivera product in the future.
my fave veggie 'kebab'
absolutely love this, and all of the vivera products - they are amazing! x
Very Bland and Weird Spongy Texture
Not anything like Greek gyros. Very bland flavour and spongy texture. No idea why everyone is raving about this. I bought this because I'm missing Greek-American gyros with tzatziki from the States, but this is nothing like what I expected, and I won't purchase again.
Real deal surprised
Taste's just like the real thing from Kebab. I need to use 2 cartons for one serving. Great with red cabbage and chiili sauce and chips occasionally.
If you're unsure, try it.
I am a meat eater but I'm also on a diet. Obviously there's lots of lean cuts of meat I can have (and do have). However, I'm not adversed to trying meat alternatives where the meat version is going to very high fat and calories. These are simply amazing. Like with Linda McCartney sausages, I think most meat eaters wouldn't have an issue with these. I had them with pitta, low fat hummus and salad. They're still quite high in protein so I was feeling really full after.
