Superb for shepherds pie
Made a shepherds pie with this today. Fried an onion, added the mince, tin of garden peas, tin of carrots, and pack of shepherds pie mix. Added a bit of chilli and garlic. Topped with mash and vegan grated cheddar and placed under a hot grill. Superb!
A total disappointment.
The positive reviews persuaded me to try this which was a mistake. Honestly, I wanted to find something good but couldn't; the texture was soggy, the smell and flavour was indescribable. Even though my daughter and I ate it because it was our dinner, my husband threw his away. This Plant Chef product continued to repeat on us all evening like an unpleasant memory. A meat free mince best forgotten.
I really liked this, made a lovely bolgnaise and it's nice and soft texture. The kids even had it. Will be using this in the future.
Excellent that it’s meat and soya free
I really enjoyed this it has a slight mushroom flavour and makes a really nice bolognese. The texture is slightly soft and it does have a bit of a funny smell cooking but tastes good. Even the kids ate it.
Tesco answered my prayers- perfect :)
Tesco you have answered my prayers for a Soya, wheat free vegan mince. This is perfect. Agree it smells a bit odd when cooking but once you get the hang of cooking with it, timing it right and the right heat then its incredible and versatile. Happy with the texture as I really don't want my food resembling meat in texture, although its a very close feel. Makes a mean spag bol Even my fussy children demolished each meal cooked with it This will definitely be a regular purchase in my basket. Thanks Tesco!
Was revolting. Had a VERY weird smell, tasted like feet and was mushy. Definitely the worst vegan mince we’ve tried and definitely won’t be purchasing again.
Tried this as our usual option(s) weren’t in stock and I didn’t even get to eat it as the smell was so bad! By far the worst mince I’ve tried
I decided to try this in a bolognese because it actually looks like mince, but the smell and taste is revolting. It smells like old fruit in a compost bin. Very disappointing, especially considering how many mince replacements out there taste and smell close to the real thing.
