This mince is the work of the devil! My husband picked it up by mistake at the weekend.I thought I may as well try it. I have never tasted anything so disgusting in all my life.I usually make a vegetarian lasagna once a week with lovely homemade pasta.I had to throw the Bolognese sauce straight in the bin.Awful texture, disgusting flavour.Yuck yuck yuck
Bought this as attempting to eat a little less meat. Was persuaded by the fact that it looked like real mince.... Started cooking it and the smell was revolting. Added many spices and vegetables to try and make it better. Sat down to eat our Bolognese and the taste was like nothing I've ever had before.. So bad that we stood straight back up and remade pasta with sauce for dinner. Will never be buying this again nor will i ever comprehend how it is on the shelf in the first place.
I made bolognaise. Many of the reviews here are re
I made bolognaise. Many of the reviews here are really negative so I'm going to be totally fair. Placing aside the palm oil issue (no company should be using palm oil in these enlightened times) I cooked the mince on a low heat, it has a strong smell of marmite while cooking. It held its shape really well. I used tomato, onion and mushroom for flavour and texture, with fresh thyme and oregano. It tastes perfectly fine. It isn't as delicious as a meat mince but I wouldn't expect it to be. Address the palm oil issue and you have a lovely, meat free and ethically sourced addition to your pantry.
Tastes inexplicable, do not buy
Why does it taste like instant coffee?? And why have they put sugar in it? Really don't understand how this passed any kind of taste test process... There are way better vegan minces around, even the old dried soya kind is better, there's no point buying this one.
Turned to mush whilst attempting to cook, always use meatless farm co but thought we’d give this a try as we shopped in Tesco this week, definitely would not buy again, tasted gross.
It's really not good and I am not a fussy eater. In fact it's horrible 😭😭😭
Gives vegan food a bad name.
Awful. Doesn’t cook properly and doesn’t bind other ingredients. Flavour is nasty. Why are you selling this?
disintegrates and tasteless
Did not hold together at all, kind of disintegrated into the dish (bolognaise) and was not as tasty as it sounded on the description - very bland
Terrible texture. Used for a bolognese and the texture just turned to mush. Also tasted quite bean-y.
Terrible stuff! Don't waste your money on it.
What can I say, maybe my expectations were to high. I am neither a vegan or vegetarian but appreciate some of the meat-free offerings out there from time to time. First of all - as soon as this stuff hit the pan it began to burn, the smoke was too much, I had to add more than the instructed amount of oil and the consistency was lumpy and it was hard to cook evenly. After 15-20 minutes trying to "brown" this pan of goodness-knows what I gave in. In future I'll be sticking to Quorn which turned out far-better than this rubbish, and probably beef as well! Poor show Tesco, I guess you didn't test this product enough before you launched it and expected us consumers to be your lab rats. Next time I pop in I'll be returning the packaging and demanding a full refund!
