I absolutely loved this pie, I’ve tried a few and the best so far. Whatever you do oven cook it though, gives the potato and lentils time to cook properly. Will definitely purchase again (if they ever restock it).
Far too much sugar in it.
I love mushrooms and thought I would love this but all I could taste was sugar. Much too sweet.
If you like potatoes you'll like this!
It's more potato than anything else but delicious when baked in the oven! Not sure why it has so many bad reviews.
Very little mashed potato and strangely hard lenti
Very little mashed potato and strangely hard lentils, had to add flavourings so it didn't go to waste. Wouldn't buy again.
Excellent if oven cooked.
Excellent vegan cottage pie - amongst the best I've had from a supermarket. As with all potato-topped pies, it's very important to oven cook it so it crisps up a little on top, it's not really suitable for microwaving, which will make it mushy in texture.
Not very good
Really like most of this range but this was a disappointment. It had a really strange taste and the lentils were like bullets. It went in the bin after three mouthfuls. Would not buy again
Hardly any mushroom
Very strange flavour - possibly too much garlic? Hardly any mushroom. Very glad I added peas to give some protein, texture and flavour!
Could do better ...
Well done, Tesco, for fortifying this plant-based product with several nutrients that can be low in plant-based diets, including B12 and iodine. Not so good is that while this meal only provides 1/5 of average daily protein requirements (11.9g, most people need 50-60g), it gives 1/4 total daily sugar allowance (7.5g out of 30g) and 1/3 recommened daily salt intake (1.9g out of 6g). Generally, more plants are good, more sugar and salt are bad.
Big fan of Tesco really embracing veganism with these new ranges, but this was not one of their highlights. The mash was very sloppy and there was a lot of it compared to the mushroom base (which significantly lacked mushrooms). Worst of all, it was completely overpowered by garlic. I would stay away, this doesn’t really represent what vegan food can taste like.
Delicious! Cooked from frozen in the oven was really easy and results were great. Great flavours, most of packaging recyclable and relatively healthy. Would definitely buy again for a quick but extremely tasty meal.
